OLO’s technology is simple – yet brilliant – because half of its hardware is already in your pocketmaking it easy for anyone to print in 3D.And because there are more than 2.2 billion smartphone users, OLO is not just a device, it’s not just a 3D printer: it’s a game changer.

They have been hard at work for 2 years perfecting the case, reinventing mechanics, reengineering micro-chips, and discovering a completely new line of materials called Daylight Resins.

The final result is a beautiful and portable design that is easy to use at a fraction of the cost of any other 3D printer on the market. OLO makes 3D printing easy and accessible for everyone.

OLO is a uniquely elegant and powerful device.  On the one hand, the 3D printer is simple in terms of actual mechanics. Seven components, including the injection molded shell and a single Z-axis motor, make up the printer itself.  However, by relying on a user’s smartphone (iPhone, Android, or Windows Phone) as the soul of the system, OLO becomes incredibly powerful. Via the OLO smartphone app, masks of light are projected from the phone onto the printer’s resin tray, hardening each slice of an object as the OLO lifts it out of the vat layer by layer.

In this way, OLO is almost like the Google Cardboard of 3D printing.  It takes an ingenious tool that already exists, the smartphone, and uses it to power an entirely new application that opens up endless possibilities. OLO available for almost any device. All you need is a flat touch screen smartphone. OLO is compatible with OS from Apple, Android, and Windows.
