KOKONI, a young Chinese 3D printer manufacturer, has launched the KOKONI EC2, an entry-level smart 3D printer designed to cater to the needs of DIY enthusiasts and households with children. As a successor to the EC1 model, the system combines accessibility and affordability with advanced features, and is available for $349.
The EC2 grants access to a continually expanding 3D model gallery, boasting over 2,000 diverse designs with weekly updates. The system also reportedly comes with AI-generated design capabilities that ’empower users to bring their unique concepts to life without the need for specialized software skills’. A built-in 720p camera allows for time-lapse video creation and enables users to monitor the printing process remotely. The system’s upgraded print head facilitates faster printing speeds – turning simple 3D models into reality in under 20 minutes.
The KOKONI EC2 is connected via the KOKONI 3D APP, a robust companion application that interfaces with the system and orchestrates a seamless, PC-free 3D printing experience. The app offers an array of features, including AI-generated models and simplified printing scenarios, complemented by an in-app model gallery for immediate printing.
According to KOKONI, the company has a steadfast commitment to making 3D printing an accessible, enjoyable, and hassle-free pursuit for all. The KOKONI EC2 embodies this ethos, delivering an unparalleled blend of affordability, user-friendliness, and cutting-edge capabilities.
