It seems that 3D printers are becoming more and more popular now, and with more inexpensive models hitting the market, it's not uncommon to see them put to use at home. While many people have specific uses for a 3D printer in the office, most of us can't really justify it beyond the "novelty" stage — but that's where FLUX changes things. FLUX is a modular 3D printer that not only prints, but also does 3D scanning, laser engraving and more.

Rather than just have a machine that only performs one function, FLUX can take the place of multiple machines in your home or office. You can use it as a 3D printer to print models, food, or ceramic. Scan objects in 3D. Attach the laser module for engraving into wood, food, plastic, and much more.

The small footprint of FLUX lets it sit quietly without taking up a heap of space, so it can fit into nearly any office. The FLUX Studio will let you use your smartphone for 3D modeling, system configuration and hardware control as well.

Early birds can get in early with FLUX on Kickstarter for just $499 ($100 savings). Compare that to the price of similar machines and FLUX save you over $1500 in the end — all in one machine.

I think it should be clarified on what you mean by "smart phone", as Windows Phone and Blackberry tend to get left out of everything cool.

Though I must say, I've love to have one! looks super duper cool.

They don't say. Just that it connects through BlueTooth.

It would be nice if they had an open API for the connection, since the main thing they are selling are the modules and the base machine.
