Unless you live under a rock, you’ve no doubt heard all about the wonders of 3D printing. There are dozens of options to choose from these days, and the BI V2.0 is a 3D printer that’s recently grabbed our attention. It’s a Kickstarter project that’s coming to a close, and it has a couple of unique features that are sure to impress.
The BI V2.0 is a 3D printer being produced by Boots Industries, and it works about like any other 3D printer as it lets you create 3D objects from plastic filaments. Ever see a hot glue gun? It works in a similar manner, but build your creation one layer at a time as the machine continuously pushes plastic until your project is complete. The BI V2.0 does that, but it allows you to create large objects of up to 300mm x 300mm with great print quality. It also self-replicates…
Self-replication is something you may not want to hear about if you’re worried about Skynet taking over the planet someday. In the case of the BI V2.0 3D printer, it’s a good thing as you’ll be able to actually create and build core components from the printer to use or share. The self-replicating only goes so far as the BI V2.0 prints with plastic, but the team from Boots Industries designed it so that the metal components and other parts of the machine can be easily picked up.
The BI V2.0 Kickstarter campaign comes to an end in less than 24 hours, and they’ve already surpassed their $30,000CAD goal by raising a whopping $169,075CAD. At this time, the cheapest “Early Bird” backing level you can get in on is for $699 CAD. If you miss out on the campaign, have no fear as the BI V2.0 will be available on Boot Industries site for $799 sometime after the Kickstarter orders go out later this year.
