Fuel3D Joshua Harker Kickstarter Cover

Fuel3D reveals unique product casing for affordable 3D scanner

Last week, we wrote about Fuel3D, a handheld 3D scanner for less than $1,000 that has raised over $200,000 on Kickstarter.

Fuel3D Inc. today revealed the design of a unique product casing designed by renowned 3D artist, Joshua Harker. The limited edition casing is only available to pledgers for Fuel3D’s crowd funding campaign on Kickstarter.

Fuel3D is an affordable handheld 3D scanner that delivers high resolution shape and color capture for a range of 3D modeling applications, such as 3D printing, 3D art and 3D game development. Since launching on Kickstarter on July 31, with its initial goal of raising $75,000 achieved within 36 hours, the project has raised more than $220,000, with over two weeks of the campaign still remaining.

American artist, Joshua Harker, is considered a pioneer of 3D printed art and sculpture. Along with his techniques, subject matter and execution, his experimentation in the dissemination of his art through digital media and the internet has garnered him international recognition and acclaim. His work is included in nearly 3,000 collections, alongside such notable artists as Andy Warhol and Ron English.

“I am hugely impressed with the quality of the scans that I have seen from the Fuel3D scanner and am intriqued by the multitude of possibilities such a tool can bring to the table for artists,” said Harker. “The very reasonable price means that more people will be able to use the technology to get creative with 3D images and continue to push the medium in exciting new directions. This access ushers in a new phase of liberated design. To channel forms from one dimension into another is a profoundly powerful ability once only associated with the occult… welcome to our new reality!”

Check out the gallery of this design below.

Only available to Kickstarter pledgers, the unique product casing design, made from 3D printed polyamide and described as an “OUIJA planchette executed in the tangled filigree aesthetic”, aptly demonstrates the potential of Fuel3D to enable the creation of short-run, “special edition” product variants.

“With a product like Fuel3D, the ability to create specialized product designs is made a whole lot easier by allowing easy capture of 3D images which can then be manipulated into product enhancements for 3D printing,” said Stuart Mead, CEO, Fuel3D. “This can then be applied in many different scenarios, for example like the custom product cover Joshua has designed for the Fuel3D, and we think that the potential to apply this approach in the luxury goods sector and for other products is hugely exciting.”

Kickstarter pledgers will have the opportunity to get their Fuel3D with the special cover for just $1,490, but with only 40 being made, they will have to move quickly.

“The Fuel3D scanner with the Joshua Harker cover is available now on Kickstarter for less than the future retail price of the actual product, which is an amazing offer,” added Mead. “The lucky few pledgers who get this will be getting a unique piece of limited artwork along with their Fuel3D scanner!”
