From PR Newswire: MUMBAI, India, Jan. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — 3D printer manufacturer Maher Soft has launched an Indiegogo campaign to introduce their new desktop 3D printer — dubbed “Indie” — to the public, the company announced today.
“Unlike other Kickstarter or Indiegogo projects, our product is well beyond the conceptual and prototyping phases,” said Maher Soft Founder Mohammed Khorakiwala, “Indie is fully-developed, fully-tested, and fully-functional. Our goal is simply to rally support to secure the resources needed to ramp up production and bring Indie to desktops around the world.”
The Mumbai-based startup has already successfully proven Indie’s efficacy, having tested the product with their existing customer 3D models. In one case study, the team used Indie to create a scale model of a 115-meter-long piece of transport equipment for a leading transport services company in the petroleum and refinery industry.
Indie’s ability to enable companies to rapidly prototype and test products, capture the interest of clients, and ultimately bring products to market faster and more affordably spans numerous industries as diverse as healthcare, industrial design, aviation, engineering, and more.
Indie makes it possible for surgeons to prep on a 3D-printed model of a human body part prior to surgery, architects to showcase model building and landscape designs to clients, automotive companies to perform functional testing on auto components, and many other valuable applications.
Lightweight and compact in size, Indie is designed to fit right on the desktop, making it perfect for DIY enthusiasts, students, and makers of all sensibilities.
Not only is Indie one of the most power-efficient machines in its class — consuming less than 250 watts while in operation — but also one of the most affordable, offering state-of-the-art features difficult to find in other brands and for a fraction of the cost.
Key Indie Desktop Printer features include a large 8″x8″x8″ heated bed to ensure uniform heating along with an enclosed heated chamber and temperature sensor to remove excess heat that reduce cracking and warping of the print. A combination of injection molded and metal parts and high quality bearings extends gantry life.
