Just like you, we yearned for an easy-to-use 3D printer that could meet all of our creative needs, but couldn't find one on the market. To design one, our team of engineers and designers developed groundbreaking ways to reduce manufacturing costs, increase ease of use, and maintain high quality performance. So here it is: the 3D printer everybody across the globe has been waiting for!
The Genesis Uno and Duo make printing on the go a breeze. They have a unique space-maximizing and user-friendly design that allow you to comfortably and efficiently print all of your 3D projects without sacrificing quality. The Genesis DUO takes it further by doubling your print options in terms of colors and materials.
As well as a large print volume, the Genesis Uno and Duo offer many more additional features that make these printers stand out in the 3D market:
- Full sized LCD: Control and monitor your printing progress right at your Genesis printer
- SD support: Start untethered printing right from your Genesis
- Wireless connectivity: Control your Genesis via PC, tablet, or smartphone
- Auto-Calibration: Drastically reduce the time spent on calibration
- Blazing print speeds: Print your prototypes at up to 150 mm/s
With standard print volumes and the fastest print speeds in their price range, the Genesis Uno and Duo truly set the bar high. Their compact, user-friendly design incorporates extra features that enhance the printing process and the quality of their outputs without added manufacturing costs or bulk.
To make this amazing 3D printer, we first had to address the technical and design issues that were behind the high cost and inconsistent quality of other 3D printers on the market. We found that many of the Cartesian, square-shaped, and Delta 3D printers made inefficient use of structural materials and space.
Our patent-pending design, which exploits material strength and the rigidity of a properly mounted axis, keeps production cost low by removing nearly half the structural volume of existing machines and decreasing by 50% the amount of needed components, while continuing to allow for a large build volume of up to 1 cubic foot. Every component of the Genesis 3D printer is designed with multi-functionality in mind to reduce manufacturing cost of redundant components. In addition, all electronics are housed together to further lower the time and cost needed for cable management.
Our cantilever design eliminates bend or misalignment, and allows the Genesis 3D printer to withstand any rapid print movement or handling.
The Genesis 3D printer also offers an unmatched modular design which allows you to easily upgrade printer parts so that your Genesis 3D printer can remain on par with the best consumer 3D printers on the market.
Dual-extruder printers in the present market perform at slow print speed due to bulky motors on the axis. In order to address this problem, we incorporated a lightweight, well-tuned Bowden system that allows incredibly fast print speeds of up to 150mm/s and a resolution quality of up to 50 microns.
Additionally, we included an auto-calibration sensor that allows consistent adherence of the first print layer, the most critical step in any 3D printing process. Genesis’ autonomous calibration system along with other key features keeps it ready to print at all times.
LCD and Wireless Connectivity
Print on the go with an SD card and monitor your print status right on the LCD screen. Control your Genesis 3D printer from your smartphone, tablet or PC via Wi-Fi or USB to keep your desk or work area clutter-free.

Risks and challenges
Meeting manufacturing and shipping deadlines while maintaining a consistent quality product will be most critical to our effort. We are serious about keeping to our schedule but if there are unintended delays during material transport, manufacturing processes, and shipping; we will always be upfront about them and plan an appropriate course of action and share it with all of you.
To prevent this delay, we eliminated the need for outsourcing manufacturing cost to create professional grade products locally. Furthermore, we will hire extra manpower to devote to printing and kit assembly on a full-time basis. We have discussed this in great detail and feel confident we will meet the demands and expectations of our awesome supporters.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
