Ethereal Halo 5D printer

Posted on Updated on

Ethereal Halo is world’s first 5 axis CNC printer. We know 3d printing and 4D printing but now we have 5D printer.

“All our earlier products were 3-axis machines,” says Mudda. “After building a sustainable business we wanted to up the ante to make a desktop scale 5-axis CNC machine. The existing ones were all really huge, and really costly, so we thought this was a good challenge.”

Mr. Mudda did explain about 5D printing, with conventional 3D printing] plastic gets melted and deposited layer by layer. But they’re just stacked, so if you put enough force on the Z-axis it’s going to break. That’s the biggest disadvantage of FDM printed, that’s why the importance of 5-axis. So imagine something like a concave shaped cap – it’s impossible to make with a regular 3D printer, because you’d need to build a lot of filler, and supports. But with a 5-axis since the bed itself is moving, it gives me the freedom to print however I want, [make] that kind of structure. Or a cylinder with fan blades, how do you do that with a regular 3D printer!!!!
