Introducing the Aluminatus TrinityOne
Nil Satis Nisi Optimum
"Nothing But The Best Will Do"
THE ALUMINATUS TrinityOne PRO printer is available for purchase!!!
Congratulations to those who got their orders in for the Aluminatus TrinityOne Printers! We are working diligently to get the final batch sent to you! The first printer was hand-delivered on Saturday, 1/26/13 and the final batch will begin shipping Friday, 4/12/13.
We now have the Aluminatus TrinityOne Pro Printer available for sale and they will be shipped within 4-5 weeks of their order date so Click here for details on what this includes and to place your order now as we only have 40 available!!!
This is a quantum leap forward in affordable desktop 3d printers. With a very rigid, all aluminum constructed frame and professional linear assemblies for the X,Y, and Z axis, this printer will set a new bar for 3d printing quality and build-volume size.
With approximately 300mm x 300mm x 340mm of printable build-volume, the TrinityOne has a full SQUARE FOOT of printable space to use to turn your ideas into reality! Let your mind roam free and use our newest "matter compiler" to turn your thoughts into tangible, physical objects with amazing, eye-popping print quality and a huge print size that will allow you to produce objects other 3d printers only dream about printing in one piece.
The TrinityOne combines an all-new, cartesian robot platform, with the X&Y axis custom-developed using 10 start 25mm pitch leadscrews(look ma, no belts!), SIMO™ linear actuators (manufactured by our partners, PBC Linear), and a rigid Z axis based on 12mm FeatherLight PTFE coasted smooth shaft with PBC Linear's Simplicity™ PTFE Linear Bearings along with 10x2mm 400mm long, straight as an arrow leadscrews.

Here are some links to photos of prints made on the new TrinityOne:
Repeatability is the biggest factor in the perceived quality of your printed parts. Prints from a TrinityOne printer at 0.2mm layer heights appear to be better quality than 0.1mm layer heights on most other printers because of the high repeatability that precisely aligns the layers that are laid down one after another. Giving the final prints a remarkable quality of accuracy!
The TrinityOne's Z axis is capable or 0.025mm or 25micrometer layer heights! Of course with the unmatched repeatability of the X and Y leadscrew axis this is not truly needed as very high print quality is achieved with layer heights of 0.2-0.27mm that look like 0.1mm prints on other competitors printers. The Z axis is based on 12mm FeatherLight PTFE coasted smooth shaft with PBC Linear's Simplicity™ PTFE Linear Bearings along with 10x2mm 400mm long straight as an arrow leadscrews.
Print Bed: The Aluminatus TrinityOne ships by default with a true Borosilicate print surface for the flattest, highest quality print surface available for 3d printers. It also comes with a kapton heating element that allows for printing of PLA and ABS as well as many other experimental new resins and types of plastic as they become available in filament forms. The print surface is 300mm x 300mm and has a 290mm x 290mm 24V, 400W kapton heater installed under a 300mm x 300mm aluminum heat spreader. The entire assembly is supported by a G10 and Aluminum Y platform machined for a light-weight and rigid/aligned print platform that hardly needs to be leveled. The all-metal construction of the frame and the rigid linear assemblies makes it perfectly level by default.
85% Pre-assembled Kit: The TrinityOne ships as a kit but has been mostly pre-assembled and tested before it arrives at your doorstep. The estimated build time form unboxing to first print is only 1-3 hours! All of the precision-aligned linear motion assemblies are prebuilt and calibrated for you ahead of time and the PSU and Electronics as well as the wiring harness are pre-mounted to the assembled lower frame prior shipping. All there is left for you to do is to bolt together around 10 major components and then plug a few wires into their pre-made harness. There is no other 3d printer kit that you can assemble faster than this one. Also, you cannot misalign the linear axis by the very nature of their pre-assembled form factors. We ship pre-installed firmware on your electronics and provide custom tailored and tuned configuration files for the host and slicing software you run on your computer to drive the printer.
Extruder: The TrinityOne comes by default with a custom-designed extruder that uses a true planetary gear head nema17 motor with massive 334 oz-in holding torque but fast speeds of up to 118RPM. This allows for it to direct-drive 3mm filament with ease and still have very fast retraction speeds. The SIMO linear stage on the X axis can maintain up to 390mm/sec speed with up to 2.4kilos of weight on the carriage so using a bit heavier motor like this on the extruder does not affect the print speed at all. By default the TrinityOne also ships with a 0.4mm nozzle Jhead MKV-b hot end and uses a hobbled pulley made by blddk, who makes the best gripping filament hobbs on the planet. This extruder/hot end setup is nearly bullet proof and the custom guilder system makes it very easy to change filaments by just cutting off the current filament and pushing in the new color as the old one enters down into the extruder. This is easily done, even while printing, to allow for easy and precise color changes during a single print.
We are very excited about this new platform. This TrinityOne has been in the works for over a year now and was the main printer we started this company to deliver. We are highly focused on this new platform and have setup a completely new shipping procedure and inventory system as well as this new website that makes it much easier for us to fulfill orders in a timely manner. While we had some shipping issues in the past, those days are over. This new Aluminatus platform is not only optimized for print quality and speed but supply chain and volume shipping on our side. We are confident in our ability to ship the highest quality printer available in the price range to whatever demand for volume we are besieged with once people see this printer in action and need one for themselves!
Stay tuned for constant updates as we polish this printer getting closer to the ship date. This is truly a leap forward in the technology used for the core cartesian platform and you will be happy with this printer on your desk.
