Lotmaxx ET: 3D printer and cutter
The ET from Lotmaxx is a 3D printer that can also engrave and cut wood using a laser. Makers can thus save a lot of space, at least in certain cases.

3D printers and laser engravers are basically relatively similar, although 3D printers still work in the third dimension. However, both devices must be able to perform very precise movements with a tool, i.e. a printing nozzle or a laser. Lotmaxx is now launching a 3D printer, namely the ET, that can also be used as a laser engraver. The manufacturer also aims to impress with a number of additional functions, such as a camera system with full HD resolution as well as RGB lighting.

The printing space is specified as 245 x 245 x 265 millimeters, a print nozzle with a diameter of 0.4 millimeters is installed, and the accuracy is specified as 0.1 millimeters. Layers of between 0.1 to 0.4 millimeters high can be printed. The printing plate can be heated up to 120 °C and the nozzle up to 300 °C. This is an open system, which means that potentially harmful substances are released into the surrounding air unfiltered. The printing speed is specified as up to 500 mm/s with automatic leveling.

A laser with an output of 20 watts is supported. This should not only be able to engrave various materials, but also cut them. More specifically, pine wood up to 12 millimeters thick can be cut and non-transparent acrylic with a thickness of up to 8 millimeters is also said to be possible. A 4.3-inch touchscreen is available for control, while WiFi and USB and an app are also available.

The Lotmaxx ET is now available for pre-order as part of a Kickstarter campaign at a starting price of US$299. Potential supporters should keep in mind that such crowdfunding campaigns involve significant financial risk.
