Creator of Rinnovated Design Rylan Grayston is introducing the world’s first $100 3D printer. Currently being funded on Kickstarter and Indiegogo, the Peachy Printer is a professional-grade machine without the huge costs.

The mechanics of the Peachy Printer are fairly easy to comprehend. It is a Photolithographic printer that uses a controlled beam of light to solidify light sensitive resin into hard objects. Using a laser beam to scan the shape of the original object, the Peachy drips resin on the object to determine the height of the object, producing the 3D figure.

Before the Peachy starts to print the 3D model, software Blender needs to first scan the model and translate it into an audio waveform, which is sent to the computer via the headphone jack. Once the waveforms are transferred to the computer, electro magnetic mirrors will then reflect the and control the pointing of the laser beam.

Also functioning as a 3D scanner, the Peachy can portray a realistic model of whatever object you choose to capture with your camera, webcam, or DSLR.

The video below will better help you understand how the Peachy Printer works.
