3D Rapid Prototyping System

NeoTrux Systems is developing a unique RP machine (rapid prototyping), capable of making not just small but large scale products using a wide range of raw materials, from polymers to concretes.

Unit is capable of manufacturing parts from 10x10x10 cm all the way up to 10,000x10,000x10,000 cm (10.0 x 10.0 x 10.0 m) or even larger. Machine footprint is just 10 to 5 percent larger than the working envelope. The entire geometry is created using a revolutionary head design that hovers and creates the parts, layer by layer.

Capable of handling a wide range of materials, user has virtually no limits in selecting a material. 3D geometry can be loaded into the device using a WiFi link or an SD card. New release will add the functionality of a direct link to an iOS device (iPhone/ iPad) through Bluetooth serial port.

Preliminary technical specification of the mainstream unit:

  • Working Envelope: 1.0 x 1.0 x 1.0 m
  • Operating Voltage: 24 Volts (uses regular 110/220 Volt outlets)
  • Foot print during operation: 1.2 x 1.2 x 1.2 m
  • Foot print in standby mode: 1.2 x 1.2 x 0.10 cm
  • Structure: NeoTrux patented ultra-light composite
  • Shipping size : 0.8 x 0.2 x 0.2 cm
  • Shipping weight: 12.0 kg
  • Estimated cost of the kit (consumer buy direct) : 350.00 USD
  • Estimated cost of the finished unit (consumer buy direct) : 850 USD

L3DGMS - NeoTrux Systems

While 3DSurfScan only uses gray scale to estimate and generate a 3D mesh of an object, the L3DGMS, will use a unique approach and captures the "exact" geometry of the product with a tolerance of ±0.025 mm. Product will implement Bluetooth serial link to any iOS device and will generate/ monitor the 3D geometry of an object in real-time. We are working hard to add other sensing capabilities to the device beside its geometry scanning capability.


Software - NeoTrux Systems

This 3D surface generator uses the device's camera as a 3D Surface Scanner to view, create, modify and export 3D surface models allowing us to really make it easy and inexpensive for both professional designers and casual 3D enthusiasts to use complex textures and surface geometry found in real world objects in their designs and art.


NeoFuse - NeoTrux Systems

Considering the pressure on the industry in general to reduce energy (during production, usage of product and recycling), the technology has received a lot of attention and many target applications have been considered for development.
