GUESS WHAT YOU GUYS!
You can now sign up to receive your very own BoXZY. They launched the Kickstarter at 9:45 AM EST this morning and are only asking for $50,000. Lets help make their goal a reality and really get this amazing machine off the ground.
So what is BoXZY exactly?
BoXZY is a desktop fabrication device that is a triple threat. It combines a 3D Printer, CNC Mill, and Laser engraver into one compact machine. It utilizes quick-changing heads so you can shape virtually any materials with a few quick changes. You simply slide an attachment out and replace it with another. BoXZY has a 4 micron resolution and drive all 3 axes with industrial ballscrews!
But why do I need one?
If you're a maker and a do-er, or even just a stay at home mama that wants to create some cool stuff - you need one. It gives you access to creating cool things in a quick minute. The interface is easier to use than some other machines and quite frankly, you'll spend more on a single machine that has one purpose than you're going to for this guy.
If you're unaware of all of the cool stuff you can do why don't you check on Thingiverse and Kerf Cases to get an idea of the cool things you can download to 3D print or check out what the cool cats over at Kerf are doing to make their engravings. Maybe then you'll see all of the possibilities that this machine opens up for you.
And if you're still unsure, maybe even just donate $5 and see where it goes. They're really a well deserving, hard working group of people that are doing big things in the PGH. So why not support your local makers?

Share it, support it, or don't- but there's no complainin' when ya miss out!
