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.

About OPENCREATORS BS210™

OPENCREATORS BS210™ is a fully autonomous 3D printer that is customized for small production and manufacturing. With built-in plates, this innovative 3D printer can work continuously for 24 hours without supervision.

Through innovation we developed a microscopic sensitive sensor called 360 SLP™ which allows the 3D printer to recognize the curvature of a build plate and a vertical XY axis completely. That means it can build with an industrial degree of accuracy and precision and can print without any failures.

BS210™ is not only reliable and highly productive, it also can support a complete dual 3D print out. Whatever the types of 3D forms you use the printer can print them to achieve the results you want without hesitation.

The Way It Works (Core functions)

A. 3D printer which can print continuously. 
(ABC™ Module- Automatic Build plate changer)
ABS™ Module
ABS™ Module

The ABC™ Module is a device that automatically provides a Build Plate (Bed) for 3D printing after completing the first 3D printing. It enables you to do a limitless amount of printing by adding to the new build plate on its tray every time you print.

Mesh Leveling with 360 SLP™ Module
Mesh Leveling with 360 SLP™ Module

The main reason why an object fails to 3D print is because of the unstable settlement of the first layer. By implementing microscopic sensors to sense even the slightest curves, the module allows an even and consistent gap between the nozzle tip and the plate. Therefore, we were able to improve the unstable settlement of the first layer that was not resolved from general auto bed leveling.

B-2. Can provide industrial grade perfection and precise accuracy in measurements.

The X/Y Vertical Adjusting can help create sculptures that are almost perfect in terms of measurements and can automatically fix the minutest error during assembly.

C. Soluble Support

(SPH™ Module - Slide Parking Head)

The Slide Parking Head (SPH) is for dealing with multiple materials. It uses the dual nozzles that are attached to the corner of the printer whenever it needs to. So, it is very easy to replace and to manage the nozzles for material types at any time. The Slide Parking Head allows the use of PVA materials. After finishing 3D printing, soak the printed object in water to dissolve the support.

*Feeder

OPENCREATORS BS210™’s feeder is optimized for 2.85mm filament. We think that E3D’s Titan feeder is the best choice for flexible filament applications.  


* The Ultimaker’s Feeder in the video clip and the image is only a development concept.

D. Full Metal Frame

The degree of precision and operational reliability are both improved because OPENCREATORS BS210™ 3D printer is built from a super precise metal frame using accurately made jigs. The metal frame also provides fast and accurate production and easy maintenance and repairs for customer services.

E. Wobble Free Design

Bending of the Z-axis screw makes the surfaces, where printed outputs are placed, wobbly. The Wobble Free mount compensates for the screw deflection by implementing a spring-like structure which provides a uniform surface.

Existing motor drives from current 3D printers cause unnecessary vibration due to giving inconsistent signals, therefore, they create mechanical noises and minute wobbles on the surface.

TMC2100-TA Motor drive
TMC2100-TA Motor drive

OPENCREATORS introduced TMC2100 motor drives which enable perfect surface qualities by resolving the wobbling phenomenon by minimizing the motor’s noises and vibration with perfect waveform signals.

The Slide’s structures that move its head should be more precise and durable. A combination of a thick (12mm in diameter) and strong (heat treated) shaft and the Igus® bushing minimizes noises and abrasion and enables quieter and more detail-oriented 3D prints.

Risks and challenges

OPENCREATORS has been manufacturing 3D printers for the past 6 years. Whenever we develop 3D printers, we always think carefully about the manufacturing process. So, there are minimum risks in manufacturing. However, there could still be a delay in deliveries due to unforeseen circumstances. To avoid such delivery delays OPENCREATORS will work hard to keep our promises to our supporters by working closely with engineering teams and selecting our partners carefully.
