CreoPop
Docking Cradle

Safe and easy to use 3D printer for kids
Problem
Traditional 3D printers are not suitable for kids creative activities. Firstly, it is not safe to use: printing technology using melting plastic and might become the reason for skin burns and harmful fumes inhale. Moreover 3D printers design makes moving parts easily accessible and that may cause injury. Secondly, most of 3D printers have complex control instructions and require specific software skills.

Task
To develop device that will perform 3D printing but with a focus on safety and ease of use.
Requirements
  • Operational safety
  • Ease of control
  • Portability
  • High-velocity printing
About device
Portable 3D printer Docking Cradle combines compact size of control platform and detachable CreoPop 3D Pen as a printer head.

Photopolymer based Cool Inks are used for printing.

Device operation is based on our own patented technology GDM (Gel Dispensing Method) that combines pros of FDM and SLA methods.
Properties & Principles
Safety for kids
Cool extruder
Technology of cool printing let us to avoid use of heating elements, what allowed to exclude the possibility to get skin burns while using Docking Cradle and reduce risks of inflammability to the minimum.
Closed design
Printer designed with no access to moving elements, that leaves out various injuries during operation.
Non-toxic materials
Docking Cradle uses photopolymer paste as printing material instead of melted plastic for this reason there are no harmful fumes in the process of printing.
Easy to use
Printer doesn't require complex software. Device control and model selection can be done through specially developed application.

Docking Cradle wirelessly connects to mobile device via built-in BLE module.
Quick start and high speed printing
Cold start time reduced to zero: printing technology applied does not require device warm-up while CreoPop 3D pen that implemented as a printing head has everything needed for the start.

GDM technology allows model printing in varying pace, that significantly reduces printing time.
High definition
Owing to flash cure, GDM technology discovers new opportunities for printing smaller objects in higher definition.
Complex and multi color printing
Quick Ink change "on the go" allows to perform 3D printing using various colors.

At the same time it is possible to install several pens into one platform and print more than one object in one working area.
Portability and low power consumption
Key features of this solution is compact size and lower power consumption thus making Docking Cradle ideal for personal use at home.
Summary
We developed brand new 3D printing solution: safe and easy to use printer for kids creative activities — CreoPop Docking Cradle.

Our patented GDM technology allowed to exclude heating elements from device design and assure maximum safety as well as rapid printing with great level of detail.

There are no technical skills or complex software required to operate Docking Cradle — it can be controlled via mobile application.
Our own invention — CreoPop 3D Pen is used as a printing head. This module solution lets inks get refilled on the go or changed easily for multicolor printing.

New design also allows to install few pens simultaneously in order to perform printing of several 3D models at the same time.
