ProDesk3D is a beautiful futuristic desktop 3D printer. These guys really understand the importance of design, esthetic and engineering. A rare combination. A company called botObjects is the design and manufacturer of ProDesk3D.
The ProDesk3D printer is the first full color 3D desktop printer that delivers production-ready objects. The system uses compact safe engineering, eco-friendly-re-usable cartridge system and seamless software integration. It will be capable of printing down to 25 microns and delivers a unique proprietary based tri-fan system for the build platform.
According to the botObjects website :
“The ProDesk3D uses its proprietary 5-color PLA cartridge system, capable of mixing primary printing colors to generate the colors of choice for the object you wish to print. This is delivered seamlessly with our software included with the ProDesk3D.
To support your printed 3D objects, the ProDesk3D delivers a PVA-based Support Material via our proprietary Dual-Extruder head. Now the most complex 3D designs can be printed with ease. Our Support Material does not require a messy finishing set or any chemicals to complete your design.
ProDesk3D arrives out-of-box complete. Plug it into the mains, quick auto software download, insert your cartridges in seconds, and load up your 3D design and print it!”

Nano-Cellulose may be the answer. It is cheep, stronger than kevlar, biodegradable and it’s produced by feeding wood pulp to algae.
I’m not suggesting cutting down the rainforest to make trinkets, but we must start thinking about this issue in new ways unless we want the environmental issue of plastics to disrupt the 3D printing movement. Imagine printing homes, cars, and clothing out of Nano-Cellulose or a stronger safer plastic bag. The future will be a bio-based economy.

You can preorder : HERE I have a feeling you will be seeing these orange and blue 3D printers all over the place by December 2013.
