Radiant Fabrication Introduces Integrated, Desktop 3D Printer & Scanner With Modeling Software

FITCHBURG, WI -- (Marketwired) -- Sep 03, 2013 -- Radiant Fabrication today announced Lionhead™, the first consumer-level 3D printer to incorporate printing and 3D scanning into a single device packaged with Radiant Li™, an intuitive and powerful 3D modeling software. The company will launch its Kickstarter campaign in September to introduce its printer/scanner to the SMB and consumer markets, gather user feedback, and raise funds to expedite delivery of enhanced full production systems. Upon reaching its Kickstarter goal, Radiant Fabrication will start shipping Lionhead Bunny (beta) systems in October 2013.

"We created the Lionhead and Li to streamline the 3D printing experience, allowing consumers to model, edit, print, and scan from one piece of software and hardware," said Nathan Patterson, Radiant's co-founder and president. "Together, it means that consumers spend less time and money learning complex software packages and maintaining their printer, and more time using and refining their ideas."

While the market for 3D printing is estimated to triple by 2018, 3D printing adoption has been limited to engineers, designers, and hobbyists due to a steep learning curve. Users have needed strong technical knowledge and skills to model objects using complex software such as Maya or SolidWorks and then print and maintain their 3D printers. Today, Radiant Fabrication is making 3D fabrication accessible by providing a complete and seamless 3D printing, scanning, and modeling workflow.

The Lionhead is designed to be reliable, easy to use, and faster by automating common tasks and printing with multiple printheads simultaneously. The included Radiant Li editor uses controls similar to popular video games, like Minecraft, to make creating and modifying models simple and intuitive. For the first time, an integrated scanner and Li software simplifies recreating and modifying real world objects. Users can press the Scan button, place an object on the Lionhead printing platform, and close the doors. In a few minutes, a copy of the object will be ready in Li for any improvements to be made and one click of the Print button starts the printing process.

The Lionhead's simplified approach promises to broaden adoption of 3D technology, giving a large base of non-technical consumers a way "in" to the world of 3D printing.

Radiant Fabrication will offer their four printhead Lionhead Bunny (beta) printer/scanners for $1,649.
