Project Background

The founder of this 3D printer company worked as an engineer at GE, Motorola and Makerbot. He was one of the first people in the world who was able to retail a 3D Printer for less than $1,000. The first four generations of the 3D printer were made in New York, until he decided to make the fifth generation in China to save on cost.

This 3D printer is designed for use in the consumer's home. No manual calibration is required, just take it out of the box and it is ready to print.

Plastic parts:

  • · 27 pcs Metal parts

  • · 5 pcs Standard components

  • · 75 pcs

  • · Creates plastic parts up to 8" x 8" x 8“

  • · 15" x 15.4" x 19.2" footprint (L x W x H)

  • · Weight - 18 lbs

  • · External 180w power supply

  • · 15 pcs PCBs

  • · 110 pcs Screw

  • · Resolution up to 1mm

  • ·

  • ·

  • · On/Off Power Switch

  • · SoliTouch Technology

Our customer was unfamiliar with the power supply so it was delegated to Kenvox. The first sample was approved by the customer but internally, we were unsatisfied with the performance. A second sample was made free of charge and accepted by the customer. However, Kenvox remained unsatisfied with the product reliability regarding the heat sink. We ultimately redesigned the power supply with one of our partners and added additional protection circuits as a preventative measure against future reliability issues. Although the cost increased, Kenvox waived the extra charges.

Development Process Story

This 3D printer is a complex project and required a sophisticated manufacturing partner who had experience with plastic, silicone, metal and electronics. Kenvox being qualified, took on the project, signed an NDA and a 21-page commercial contract, and began the process of manufacturing the 3D printer.

A project team consisting of 8 members was assembled. The team included a project manager, sales rep, plastic engineer, metal engineer, field application engineer, quality engineer, supply chain engineer, and an electronic engineer. Each one of them having 8 to 10 years of experience in their respective disciplines. Thisensured the full understanding of the requirements and allowed us to provide significant suggestions.

The customer was experienced in product design, but was unfamiliar with the manufacturing process. Some parts of the 3D printer design could not be molded, so Kenvox had to dig deep into our experience to find a solution. We were able to make parts through mass production, saving cost and increasing product lifetime.

This 3D printer includes 113 unique parts, 39 of them had to be outsourced and 23 needed suppliers. Outsourced parts were classified into different categories and our purchasing engineer was tasked to handle this process. Our purchasing engineer made sure the suppliers understood and met the quality standards we were looking for.

Kenvox maintains a high inspection standard to insure and exceed the required quality for a customer's product.
