Digital Trends reports on Mooz, which has raised more than $100,000 from nearly 300 backers through its initial Kickstarter campaign.
Mooz isn’t just a 3D printer, however. It also serves as a modular CNC carver and laser engraver. “Thanks to the easily constructible design of the Mooz, you can quickly vary the shape of the modular device, allowing you to adjust the speed and resolution capabilities of the printer. Depending on how Mooz is oriented, you can either go for cost-effectiveness in your printing, precision and stability, or speed and color-mixing.”
The Mooz was “constructed with solid aluminum alloys, an all-metal hot end, and precision acme lead screws.” It also features easy to use software, which means you can simply drag and drop your designs into the interface.
“If you’re not interested in printing something, but need to leave your mark on an existing piece, you can turn to the machine’s CNC capabilities. With an adjustable depth of zero to five millimeters, you can carve artwork with precision and speed. The Mooz also comes with a laser engraving head. So whether you’re looking to print a logo or some text, you can use Mooz to engrave wood, corks, or even your food.”
In order to swap between these three functionalities, “simply switch out the 3D printing head for either the CNC carver or the laser engraver.” The Mooz’s price start at $239. However, “if you’re interested in purchasing the complete set (with all the various functions), prices begin at $429.”
