3D Scanner, Printer and Copier - AIO Robotics ZEUS review!



The AIO Robotics ZEUS is an easy to use 3D printer, scanner and copier - but is it actually useful?

  1. It looks like they never finished engineering it and decided to push it.The scanner is very low quality and the print bed has no heat and is too small. For 2 grand, there are far better options for a printer.

  2. Have you done anything on the E3D cyclops because I'm looking into one. I saw you did something on the promethius but that's still in development and the cyclops has been out for a bit

  3. Wow this printer is for lazy people that built in pc sucks

  4. Headache after headache all for a low price of two grand.......

  5. Scan quality is terrible and is in dire need of improvement :/

  6. Tom - where did you get that huge chisel / scraper that you used to clean off the supports from the xbox controller copy?

    ReplyDelete
  7. So many uploads recently! You put out great content tom, keep up the good work!

  8. I think it's a cool concept to have the all in one, but I think the scanner technology needs to be top of the line to be a really successful unit. I can't really see someone spending that kind of money on a printer/scanner to just scan and print simple playdoh parts...

  9. Blur those butt cheeks :)

    ReplyDelete
  10. Hey Tom, almost completely irrelevant question but have you tested the battery holder you printed? I was going to print it myself but the comments said the batteries don't auto feed properly so I ended up printing a different design.

    That amazon burn

  12. what is good, superaccurate, cheap 3dscanner?

    ReplyDelete
  13. I think photogrammetry is the future for 3D scanning. No special hardware, just take a bunch of photos with your smartphone in front of a neutral background and in soft lighting and run it through a software. Take all the angles you want.
    Only downside currently is that photogrammetry software is either expensive or a bit limited.

  14. Watching this, it suddenly occurred to me that the milestone for ease of use of such a system is most likely the point where we have the 3d scanning/printing equivalent of bored office staff photocopying their naughty bits.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I reviewed this unit for possible purchase by a large organization over a year ago, and found almost all of the same problems, except for the ones that seem NEW...

    ReplyDelete
  16. Want low cost 3d scanner? buy a kinect you will be surprised what detail you are able to archive with it and the right software...
    OK it is one beast to setup, but once it is up and running you are good to go.

  17. Nearly 3 prusas i3 mk2.

  18. Very honest review. I like that.

  19. Hey tom
    You have a video about printing carbon fiber. But this video is about 6h long and I don't really have 6h. Could you eventually make a new video or just cut the original video down to maybe 20 min with the most important parts? This would be very helpful!

    ReplyDelete
  20. For what this printer has to offer its way way too expensive.

    The fundimental problem with intregrated multifuction machines of all sorts it that it can only ever do one thing at a time and often in a highly compermised way. It may be seen as a economic solution but this logic looks a bit thin when you want to upgrade one of the functions.

    I wonder if the Fabtotum generates better scans and of course why noone talks about it or test it.

    @8:40 why the blur?

    I'll commend you for being gracious but in short...it scans poorly, it prints poorly, the computer locks up often and the print head is problematic. Why not just call it a boat anchor? =)

  25. Did you really blurred the angel's butt? I thought Europeans were not so obsessed with those kind of things like Americans.

    ReplyDelete
  26. For all of you talking about the blurred butt crack of the angel at 8:40 you can still see it in all its glory at the very beginning of the video

  27. Marlin is GPL, right? should be able to GPL request the source code.

    Thats a peace of shit of a product.

    People going out of their way to create Amazon accounts just to give their praise? That sounds suspiciously like astroturfing. But maybe it's that awesome.

    The Kensington lock slot makes this printer the best printer ever IMO. Get rekt Apple users.

  31. Fun reference to the "simple playdoh objects" you might want to scan at the end. That is exactly what they used in one of the product presentation video's, a kids playdoh snowman sent to daddy at the office.

    ReplyDelete
  32. That thing looks like a waste of money. But I hear their filament is pretty nice.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Thank you for this thorough review !

    ReplyDelete
  34. Do you happen to be german? You sound like it

    ReplyDelete
  35. you should try out the Anet A8,you may like it,you can find it on "gearbest" BTW it's a prusa i3 clone.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Nice video by the way! (lol)

    ReplyDelete
  37. also if your wondering I am using my mother's account

  38. Thanks for the great review! I was a really rooting for the zeus, now I'm disappointed. There are very few reviews for the zeus. I wonder why. I know about those amazon reviews and they all looked suspect. They were all glowing. Even from it's own website, the scans didn't look great. Zeus seems to focus on the education buyer, not real world usage. I'm in the market for printer. Zeus seemed ideal turnkey solution for a novice like me. Is there a good alternative to the zeus? Where's zeus 2?

  39. lol @ blurring out the cherub butts. =)

    Inkjet printer = 1 layer

    3d printer = 10k layers

    Yep... there's a difference.

  41. Some of the scans remind me of really cheap knockoff figurines from poundland. The rough shape is about right and then you see that freak formation of mashed potatoes upon closer inspection.

  42. We all know that these are fake reviews on Amazon.
