"Tell the chef, the beer is on me."
To create a perfect fit for Amanda Boxtel, the paraplegic patient, engineers scanned the contours of Amanda's thighs, shins and spine and created a personalized three-dimensional base to form the shape of the required assemblies. Sophisticated mechanical actuators and controls, manufactured and provided by Ekso Bionics, were then integrated with the more fluid components that were 3D printed from the customized scans to create the first ever bespoke suit. View Amanda's exoskeleton in action here.

A single set of four moulds one each for 1/24, 1/32, 1/43 and 1/64 scale cost more than $250. It was expensive enough to drive him out of the business. Just as Paterson was about to close his body shop, he discovered 3D printing from Mcor Technologies , which manufactures 3D printers with the world's lowest operating cost. Its operating cost is low because the build material is far less expensive than UV-curable plastic: it's ordinary business paper. When the paper is bonded together, the resulting 3D printed model is tough and durable because it's essentially wood. A set of four moulds costs Paterson about one-fourth of the cost of mould sets from the plastic-based 3D printer, a savings of more than $180 for each set. "Not only can I stop worrying about the cost of moulds, the thermoformed bodies are coming out truer than ever," said Paterson. "Paper holds its shape perfectly. Distortion is a well-known but rarely discussed problem with plastic-based 3d printing, which involves heating and cooling. The Mcor process is also clean and green, and I love the results and my customers love the results.

In return for people's support we're offering them a MOTA 3D Printer at a price can't be beat." Analysts from Gartner, Inc. and Canalys have characterized the 3D printer market as being at an inflection point and growing rapidly.1 Identified by Goldman, Sachs as one of the themes forcing businesses to "adapt or die," 3D printing's fastest expansion will come from personal use, according to Credit Suisse.2 The MOTA 3D Printer is intended to stimulate mass-market demand for personal 3D printers, helping to create a large, self-sustaining community of makers. Highly Capable, Highly Precise The MOTA 3D Printer is highly capable, able to make objects up to 6.1 inches wide x 6.1 inches long x 6.5 inches high using either PLA or ABS plastic filaments. It is also highly precise, with a layer resolution of 100 microns and build resolutions of 11 microns in the X & Y axes and 2.5 microns in the Z axis. A broad range of print speeds -- 60-120 millimeters/second -- and optional heated print bed give users great flexibility in designing their creations for qualities such as texture, opacity, reflectiveness, line precision, strength and/or sharpness. The printer is ready to use out of the box, with MOTA and open-source software as well as one filament spool. Unlike most personal 3D printers, the MOTA 3D Printer has two spool holders, allowing users to swap filaments faster, and a filament protection cartridge to help prevent the filament from absorbing moisture in the air. Users can change filaments without removing the object being made. An SD card reader slot in addition to a USB port lets users load design files without a computer nearby.
