Turn your phone into 3D printer through ONO

No comments

We have come a long way in the field of technology and the best example to prove this is our mobile phones, which we use in our day to day life. Seriously guys, it has evolved into much more versatile tool than anybody probably have imagined and it’s not yet over. Now it’s time for the next big thing. This time around a product name ONO vows to turn any phone into a functional 3D printer.

While many 3D printers can interface with phones via apps, this one actually uses your phone to cure the divide between them. That’s right; your phone actually becomes an essential part of 3D printer or in other words becomes a 3D printer. It uses the light from the phone's display to shape any object you’re producing.

Created by Solido3D, ONO is a portable 3D printer measuring 6.8 x 4.5 x 5.8 inches (w x d x h), making for, arguably, the first digital fabrication tool you can throw in a bag and carry everywhere (it's way smaller than the already compactM3D Micro). To use, you simply launch the app on your phone, choose the model you’re fabricating, and lay your phone down on a flat surface.  From there, you place ONO’s lower component on top of the phone, pour the recommended amount of liquid resin, and place the top component (which holds the build plate and control electronics) to cover everything.

Printing will start on its own, with the app making your phone’s screen light up with a specific pattern that corresponding to the model. A polarized glass on the bottom of the lower component takes this light and shines it outwardly, redirecting it to cause a layer of resin to harden.  The build plate slowly rises as each layer of resin hardens until the whole model is finished.  There are no details on how long printing takes, but we’re assuming it’s going to be time-consuming similar to traditional 3D printers. It’s compatible to your ios, android and windows devices. It’s very efficient too as the unused resin can be used again for future printing

A campaign is currently running for ONO on Kickstarter. Pledges to reserve a unit starts at just $99.
