Cervantes, who is a former executive at Makerbot, a 3D printing company, brings his masterful knowledge of aerospace engineering and brilliant craftsmanship to this prolific device from a New York based factory in Brooklyn, NY. A two decade veteran in mechanical engineering and business manufacturing, Cervantes’s profound technological expertise spearheads Solidoodle to the front of the market with a 3D printer with the largest build area in its class as well as being the most affordable and durable consumer printer of its kind.
The brilliance of Solidoodle is such that it changes the entire landscape of the manufacturing industry and gives rise to a new form of american independence. The ideals of Solidoodle support the heart of the American values of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The core of the Solidoodle philosophy surrounds the ideals of creativity, autonomy, imagination and originality.
Solidoodle intends to be the preeminent leader in transforming the medical and military industries by being the first company of its kind to hand the keys of freedom to not just the technicians and builders of the manufacturing industry, but also, to the average consumer. Imagine a future where a doctor uses a Solidoodle 3D Printer to treat a patient in the field with custom implants. Solidoodle will allow medical experts to treat their patients in one visit by the instantaneous printing of implants. Instead of going from specialist to specialist, one primary authority can master their field of specialization and at the same time take control over their work. This will significantly help patients in obtaining better health care as well as more financial independence.
Solidoodle differentiates itself from the rising field of 3D printing manufacturers because it places the power into the hands of the consumers themselves by combining affordability, inventiveness, self-expression and accessibility. Imagine being able to produce and create prosthetic arms and legs and implants of all kinds. Such is the future of Solidoodle. With Solidoodle, if you need it, you can create it.
Forthcoming, Solidoodle aims to 3D print a file of many objects for use in the military such as a submarine deep in the midst of the Atlantic ocean. Imagine being able to have all the tools and equipment's on hand and being able to print these items right away in the event of nationwide conflict.
Such is an example of the power given to the people with the start of a record breaking year in 2013 for Solidoodle. Millions will have greater access to personalized freedom in a wide range of industries. The first industrial revolution made processes more efficient. The revolution figured out a way to create railroads and gave access to technicians and increase productivity.
Now, as a result of the ingenuity of Solidoodle, for instance, a railroad technician instead of waiting for shipment, can print out materials at a low cost enabling greater productivity and freedom. Older children can print toys to play with, Artists can print items, not only sculpt them. Homemakers can print their own dishes, or decorative items. Designers and architects will be able to self create.
Solidoodle wishes to be the premiere leader in providing the next step tools for not only the new assembly leaders in our world but for the average man.
The goal of Solidoodle is to enable patrons of all economic and social status to have access to materials they need and henceforth removing the need to solely rely on builders and craftsmen. From makeup artists to doctors to artists to students, Solidoodle is focused on the instantaneous production of life’s imminent necessities and pleasures through the use affordable and efficient production options.
In February, Solidoodle invites media outlets from all over the world to come to a live factory tour and media briefing at our company headquarters in the heart of New York City, where distinguished industry personnel will get a live tour of the factory and exclusive introduction with Solidoodle founder Sam Cervantes.
In addition for 2013, you can expect the introduction of the Solidoodle generation three printer which combines affordability with usability. With the Solidoodle 3 printer due for worldwide release in January.
For the new year Solidoodle has many things in store for its worldwide consumers. For 2013, patrons can:
Expect Bigger Prints
Solidoodle released a beta version of a high-resolution .1 mm Repetier-Host profile for Solidoodlers as an early Christmas present in early December, enabling them to make objects with layers so thin they are difficult to distinguish with the naked eye. Expect a thoroughly tested version of the profile in the new year.
Expect Bigger Value
In January, the company will begin shipping the Solidoodle 3 - 3D printer, with 512 cubic inches of printing volume — more than double that of the Solidoodle 2. In addition to a larger build area, expect continued improvements across the entire Solidoodle product line in 2013, providing stronger machines and higher precision prints while maintaining low prices for consumers. Existing Solidoodlers won’t need to feel left in the dust though, with affordable upgrade kits also being made available to bring their printers’ capabilities up to date.
Expect Greener Options
While ABS plastic filament has been the standard for Solidoodlers, PLA (polyactic acid) plastic filament has always been compatible with Solidoodle 3D printers. To make it easier for our users, we’ll be adding PLA plastic filament to our online store. PLA plastic is made from natural materials found in plants like corn, tapioca and sugarcane. In addition to being made from renewable materials, it can be harvested and processed more locally. With PLA’s lower melting point, Solidoodlers require less electricity to print, making for a smaller carbon footprint.
No other 3D printer in the world combines capacity, utility, affordability, and accessibility the way Solidoodle printers do. Praised by USA Today as being "magic", Solidoodle is the beneficiary of numerous industry distinctions by The Tech Journal, Wired, Engadget and PC World amongst others. Solidoodle is on a precipice of technological greatness utilizing creative expression and technological independence in its effort to change the way humanity mass produces.
