What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

Forge 1 with 13, 3" ips display tablet for only 999 CHF !

Forge 1 is  the world's first 3D printer that utilizes a tablet for printing, making the 3D printing process more affordable. This printer is going to finally bring High volume SLA 3D printing to the masses by effecting a revolution in accessibility.  

On Kickstarter with 30 % discount on all packages.

After nearly two years of product development, Visionsforge  has set out to deliver a groundbreaking 3D printer that  costs a fraction of the price of today’s comparable high volume SLA 3D printers.  The Forge 1’s abilities - and cost-effectiveness - are delivered by way of a brand new technology. Visionsforge has created a process in which the Forge 1 leverages the light from a tablet to cure the resin, making it the first in the world to do this. The computing power of the tablet is involved into the printing process, which results in the Forge 1 being cheaper, more flexible, simpler, and more reliable. Another reason for the cost-effectiveness of the Forge 1 is its ease of upgrade. When a new and enhanced tablet comes on the market, users can just put it inside the drawer. Everything from the software to the raw infrastructure of the Forge 1 has been designed to be easily upgraded; if for example a new, bigger interface comes out, users can purchase just the new front lower part of Forge 1, with the new interface integrated on it and mount it in few minutes.  

 Forge 1 is very robust and built to last many decades. We chose classic lines and engineered it from the very beginning with ease of upgrade in mind .

Visionsforge is aiming to be a socially responsible company taking 3D printing where it’s yet to go. By offering more affordable solutions, Visionsforge will make it possible for consumers everywhere to purchase and utilize an industrial grade sla 3D printer that is innovative, reliable, affordable, 100% safe and comfortable to use (with the tablet the temperature in the print chamber is the same as the room temperature).

Forge 1 is easy to use, helping you to make your visions into realities more quickly than ever before. From the time that you get the printer, it should take you just 10 minutes before you can actually start printing, as Forge 1 comes fully assembled and ready to work.  

Made in Switzerland, this printer is a reliable piece of hardware, and thanks to wireless charging and Bluetooth / Wifi connections, there are no cables to worry about either. The print volume is enormous compared to our competitors' products, saving you money and time. Quiet, precise, and effective, Forge 1 is truly the printer that is going to bring 3D printing into homes around the world.  

What We Need & What You Get  

We have come to you, Kickstarter, for help raising CHF 40,000. These funds will cover the costs of manufacturing, marketing, and distributing the initial run of Forge 1 printers, getting this cutting-edge product into homes and offices everywhere. As a thank-you, we have put together some killer deals as rewards for our contributors.  

The Impact

Forge 1 is going to fast-track 3D printing into the mainstream. Right now, the majority of consumers have access to this technology only indirectly, but with this printer, all of that is about to change.

Risks and challenges

Risks & Challenges:

The technology field is ultra-competitive; there is no doubt about that. We are entering the arena, however, with a superior product, and we are confident in its ability to quickly establish itself as a leader. Whatever comes up, we will be ready for it. We will do anything to make sure that this printer gets the attention it deserves.
