Hardcotton Launches Kickstarter Campaign to Start the Production of Elemental, the World's First Pressure Controlled 3D Printer

This Kickstarter campaign is about bringing Elemental from Prototype to Production. This upcoming venture from Hardcotton promises to introduce the first ever pressure controlled 3D printer in the world.


Matawan, NJ -- (SBWire) -- 11/26/2014 --The global market for 3D printers mainly comprises of two types of products. There are many economically priced products that fail to deliver the quality of 3D prints users need. On the other hand, there are many high end 3D printers that are capable of generating high quality 3D prints.

However, these printers are extremely complex to configure and use. Hardcotton has designed a modular 3D printer named Elemental that makes 3D printing efficient, affordable and simple.

While designing Elemental, the major focus for Hardcotton was to develop a 3D printer that works with liquid resins, and cures into a solid object when exposed to ultraviolet light. The most exceptional feature of these printers is that they do not need a mechanical platform to create the different layers of a 3D printed object. It utilizes a patent pending pressure control technology that increases the resin’s volume above the build platform to print objects.

The key benefits of 3D printing with Elemental are
- There is no calibration requirement before starting a print.
- Operates quietly with no moving parts interacting with the print area.
- Quick printing with variable layer control.
- Reduces the need for support structures.
- Restarts interrupted printing process from the previous point.

Once released in the market, Elemental will certainly be the preferred 3D printing alternative for designers, engineers, architects, product developers, artists, schools, and students. However, in order to bring this excellent product to the market, Hardcotton needs to raise $250,000 via Kickstarter. The team has invested considerably from their own funds to get their prototype fully operational. Now, to keep the product’s pricing within an affordable price range, Hardcotton is looking to mass produce Elemental. The funds raised through Kickstarter will be spent to start the mass production of Elemental 3D printers.

This Kickstarter campaign will come to an end on December 19, 2014.
