Professional 3D printers at a consumer friendly price is not a dream anymore. The next generation of innovative freedom begins with The Origin. Here’s a full review from our team of 3D printing experts that will help you to break down the amazing features of this cool gadget!
One of the most exciting possibilities of 3D printing is the real-life, practical application of printed components for everyday use. However, with the limited build areas of most consumer 3D printers, printing anything beyond novelty items is nearly impossible, and one of the greatest challenges in the industry today. There is a sprawling gap between the industrial sized professional 3D printers capable of printing fully functional parts, and smaller ‘household’ 3D printers that are only big enough to print miniaturized models. This potential for creative abundance, yet lack of current functionality was one of the prime drivers behind the Origin.
3D printing is modern day magic. Before your eyes, your designs are realized in a 3D, tangible form. This technology is the cutting edge of creation, and the applications are almost limitless. We are truly passionate about innovation, so we present you Zeni Kinetic’s latest addition in the professional 3D printers line. The Origin is here to facilitate any level of dreamer on their path to invention. We started with our great idea, now it’s time for yours.
Their primary aim has been to create a printer that is appropriate for everyone—whether you’re an absolute novice, or an open source genius, the Origin is usable by all people. From the avant garde artist, to the pioneering mad scientist (our favorite), 3D printing has a place for every sphere of application. What they wanted entering into this project was to create a professional 3D printer at a consumer friendly price, and we have done just that!
The Origin is one of the only professional 3D printers on the market that begs you to make it into something else. The future of 3D printing is not limited to plastic, so why should the Origin be? This 3D printer has been created with an unlimited future in mind: for the foodie—candy, pizza, and waffle printing is on the horizon; metal and ceramic options will be available for the builders and sculptors of society.
The ability to print directly from pellets or ground plastic is currently being explored by one group and the number will surely grow. We want even the bio-printing sphere of the medical field to have options with the Origin. These advancements may be a few years down the road but we do not believe that 3D printing is just a passing fad, and the Origin is a fantastic base to begin from.
Zeni Kinetic has spent years developing prototypes of all kinds, so when it came time to develop their own professional 3D printers, they knew they were up to the challenge. There are quite a few solid and affordable 3D printers already on the market, so they made it our aim to design one that would go beyond the competition.
Zeni Kinetic wanted a design that would give us the largest practical build area with the most functionality available to be sold at a price that is both reasonable and fair. After countless iterations, and untold design changes and improvements, Zeni Kinetic has been able to finesse a sweet balance between cost- and space-efficiency, settling on the perfect build size: one cubic foot.
And then they took the lid off—literally! The lid, the front, and the back.
The result is a quiet, stylish, functional and affordable professional 3D printer. In order to accomplish this, Zeni Kinetic had to employ manufacturing techniques not commonly used in this arena, requiring us to have both water-jet cut plate-aluminum and molded plastic purchased from external contracting houses at a staggering mark-up rate.
Zeni Kinetic expertise comes from years of research and development, experimentation, and optimization. As one of the largest U.S. suppliers and manufacturers of professional 3D printer filament, they have seen firsthand what works and what doesn’t. Zeni Kinetic have been actively involved in the professional 3D printing world as it has developed, meaning that the Origin has been through many prototype iterations before arriving at its presently substantial, yet streamlined design—a balance of form, function, and price.
Because Zeni Kinetic are passionate about quality control, they have diligently endeavored to provide the highest quality material available. Their professional 3D printers speak for themselves and they leave it to you to make an informed decision. With a 90 day unconditional money back return policy on their filament, Zeni Kinetic stand behind their professional 3D printers and extend that same level of quality and confidence out to the Origin.
