makerbot-replicatorEvolutia tehnologica a ajuns la un punct la care toate obiectele din jurul nostru pot fi, teoretic, clonate, in numai cateva minute, cu ajutorul unei imprimante 3D. De la simple scule, la jucarii, dinti si chiar clone umane in miniatura, demonstratiile facute cu noua tehnologie arata ca imposibilul devine, pe zi ce trece, tot mai posibil.

O tehnologie aflata intr-o continua dezvoltare si care permite utilizatorilor sa creeze replici ale produselor scanate cu ajutorul unor polimeri speciali.

Daca pana acum, performantele erau destul de limitate, odata cu dezvoltarea tehnologiei, s-a ajuns la rezultate cu adevarat remarcabile. Iar pretul acestor imprimante a scazut puternic.

MakerBot a lansat, la Consumer Electronic Show de la Los Angeles, imprimanta 3D Replicator. Gadgetul vine cu o noua tehnologie care permite utilizatorilor sa printeze in plastic in doua culori diferite diverse obiecte de dimensiuni reduse.

Imprimanta creaza replici ale obiectelor 3D din PC, prin aplicarea de straturi succesive dintr-un praf special realizat, in general din nylon, aluminiu si sticla.

Imprimanta costa intre 1749.99  si 1999.99 dolari.O prezentare detaliata a gadgetului o puteti urmari in clipul de mai jos. Pentru cei intreresati de acest model, aflati detalii si din comunicatul de presa atasat.
