Italian company Kentstrapper, founded by technology enthusiasts Lorenzo and Luciano Cantini, has launched their new desktop 3D printer called Zero, combining ease-of-use with advanced technology. So far, Kentstrapper has already released a number of 3D printers, including the Galileo Smart, the Galileo SmartUp and the Volta. With Zero they add another made-in-Italy device to their portfolio
“In this 3D printer we have introduced new systems in order to simplify and speed up the interaction between man and machine,” Kentstrapper writes in their press release. This includes auto-calibration, the Siaren user interface, a Filament Guardian and the Phoenix system.
Within two and half minutes, the auto-system calibrates the print bed, which can be a time consuming hassle if you have to do it yourself. The intuitive user interface is called Siaren and features four main icons for easy and fast access to functions, that can be controlled with a touch of finder. The “Filament Guardian” automatically stops the printer, when it runs out of filament. After refilling the material you can simply continue the printing process. This also applies for the power supply. The Phoenix System allows you to pause and continue printing, and also manages power outages for the user, to be able to resume from where the printer has left off.
