OLO the first ever Smartphone 3D Printer – PRESS RELEASE

March 28, 2016 Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Google+ Press Release

The First Ever Smartphone 3D Printer. Only $99. The game changing printer on Kickstarter from
March 21st. #olo3d
Imagine being able to print 3D objects directly from your smartphone …for just $99.
That’s the reality of OLO!
OLO made its debut in New York in October 2015, when it won the World Maker Faire Editor’s
Choice Award. It has since received astonishing reviews from all over the world.08
OLO’s technology is simple – yet brilliant – because half of its hardware is already in our
pockets, making it easy for anyone to print in 3D. And because there are more than 2.2 billion
smartphone users, OLO is not just a device, it’s not just a 3D printer, it’s a game changer.
OLO’s team has been hard at work for 2 years perfecting the case, reinventing mechanics,
reengineering micro-chips: the final result is a beautiful and portable design that is easy to use at
a fraction of the cost of any other 3D printer on the market. OLO is made of only 7 plastic parts,
one chip, and one motor.
07OLO introduces a completely new line of materials called Daylight Resins, which harden under
the white light of a smartphone screen. Its case was designed specifically to filter out all harmful
external light to maximize the precision of the print, which can reach the incredible 42 micron
OLO is extremely portable, weighing just over a pound. Its light weight and compact size allows
anyone to take it with them in a bag, in a backpack, or in its custom neoprene OLO pro-pack.
Despite its small size, OLO allows 400 cubic centimeters of printing volume, and can fit almost any
phone, including the large iPhone 6S+ and Galaxy A7.05
OLO’s battery-powered motors give it the freedom to print anywhere, without the worry of
needing to recharge. Just 4 AA batteries will last you at least 100 prints. OLO has a virtually
noiseless mechanism, allowing its use at any time, even while you sleep.
OLO, since its conception, was designed to be used by everyone. All you need to do is select your
model, pour in the resin, and let OLO do the rest! You can launch your first print within 10 minutes
of unpacking your OLO.
04OLO, at the same time, can be used by professionals: the high accuracy combined with the wide
variety of materials allows OLO to be used for almost any application, from prototypes to many
end-use parts. Materials include hard, flexible, translucent, colored, and even castable resins. With
OLO, you will never waste a drop of material: the resin not used to print a part is completely
reusable.OLO’s app works on iOS, Android, and Windows devices. It is also compatible with a variety of
free 3D software. You can use 3D scanning apps such as Autodesk 123D Catch, or any modeling
software to design your own custom part.03
OLO also adds a social aspect to 3D printing. It is the first 3d printer to introduce OLO 3D
MESSAGE, through which creations can be shared privately between friends, right from within the
app. Users can also choose to send messages in “surprise mode,” where the contents will only be
revealed once it is printed.
OLO was designed with some incredible features:
0201. Breakthrough 3D print technology: patent pending.
02. Beautiful design: elegant and seamless.
03. Cloud-based software: super-easy to access.
04. Versatile: for absolute beginners and professionals.
05. X/Y resolution: up to 42 microns
06. Z resolution: up to 36 microns
07. Easy: to clean, to empty, to learn, to play.
08. Portable: ultra light, fits easily in your bag.
09. Automatic calibration: no more manual leveling or focusing.
10. No noise: the quietest 3D printer ever.
11. Autonomous: the first battery powered 3D printer.
12. Maintenance: long-lasting actuators, no lubrication needed.
13. Unibody: made of simple and durable technopolymers.
14. Flexible print bed: for highly optimized object removal.
15. Resins: daylight photopolymers in 4 materials and 5 colors.
16. Engineered: assembled and supported in the US.01
OLO 3D inc. is based on the professional experience of a team with over 15 years in product
engineering and more than 1200 products. OLO has become a reality thanks to its product
designers, engineers, software developers, ux designers, and production experts working together.
