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.

Prototype Gallery

These photos and videos provide a detailed look at this project’s development.

We wanted to create a mobile 3D printer that prints directly from your smart devices. With our modular design, T3D has everything you need to meet your creative needs without sacrificing on functionality. The concept is simple, with your smartphone or tablet you already own half of the 3D printing process, so with T3D, we help you complete the other half!

 How does it work?

1) Print directly from mobile devices

With T3D printer, 3D printing becomes a true mobile experience by printing directly from your mobile devices.

Excellent Portability with Mobile Devices

 3D Printing On-The-Go

2) Smartphone or tablet? You decide

T3D printer utilizes the lights from the smart devices to harden the resin and brings your designs to life.

3) Open Air Printing

Because of our patented daylight resin, you only need to avoid direct light during the 3D printing. You don’t need to place T3D Printer in the darkroom. At T3D we facilitate the “Maker Moment” by giving users front row access to the entire process as it happens.

4) Uncompromised User Experience

With T3D intuitive application, users can take full control of their creative 3D designs. T3D printer provides users with a wide selection of pre-tested 3D design models via cloud services, making every print a successful one.

Pair, Point, and Print.

 Key Features

Exceed your imagination and don’t limit the size of your creations. With a maximum print volume of 1033.6cm3 for tablets and 684.7cm3 for smartphones, you can focus on your design and let T3D take care of printing.

T3D printer supports iOS and Android smart devices, allowing users to enjoy seamless 3D printing experiences.

T3D utilizes Bluetooth for a stable high-speed connectivity, ensuring an experience without all the wires in the way.

T3D printer provides users with a variety of model gallery via cloud services to choose from. It also offers a “3D Model Check Service” to ensure every printed model can meet users’ expectations, as well as a “Support Material Setting Service” to guide proper resin setups so that every print can be a professional one.

T3D printer keeps track of resin usable information with easy-to-use scanned barcodes, as well as recommending optimal exposure time and model sizes to ensure quality 3D printing experiences.

Why only print one when you can print many? Save time and cost with T3D.

In addition to multi-color printing and 360 scanning, T3D printers plans to provide several functional kit developments in future releases.

Don’t buy a whole new printer, just add on the multi-color printing kit (M-cube) and start adding vibrant colors to your 3D printings.

T3D printer is not just a printer, it is also a 360 scanner. 

T3D printer adopts open source standards, enabling users to have full control of personalizing 3D printers according to their desired specifications.

Flexible power options make T3D more conveniently than ever.

Are you an experienced 3D printer user? Don’t change your tool preference because you change a printer. Whether it is Blender, Autodesk123D, SketchUp, Rhino, etc, not a problem. T3D will support it.

Our Team

Partnership

T3D is a startup spin-off from National Taiwan University of Science and Technology (Taiwan Tech). Currently we’re working with XYZ Printing, the world’s largest 3D manufacturer, to ensure that the T3D will be produced on schedule and up to your expectations.

Risks and challenges

Hardware projects always have the risk of production delays due to supply chain management inefficiencies or technical development. However, at T3D we try to minimize these potential risks by working 3D consultants with extensive experience in this field (Dr. Jeng, also one of our co-founders) and also collaborating with one of the leaders in 3D printer manufacturing (XYZ Printing).

Currently we have functional prototypes to begin production testing and optimization. In addition, our app development is currently in closed-beta, going through usability and functional test. Consequently we don't foresee any delays in the fulfillment and all the backers should receive their pledge rewards on time and meet their expectations.
