The KS1’s breadth of functionality makes it the best interdisciplinary scanner on the market. Learn how it’s being used to teach STEM students about the power of additive manufacturing, or helping to discover the secrets of the universe through cryogenic coolant chamber design.
Knockout envisions a world of mass customization in the near future. Using a mixture of 3D Scanning and additive manufacturing, everyone will have access to customized sports and casual equipment at the click of a button, the scan of a limb, and the print of a product. Knockout is at the forefront of this technology and works everyday to bring us closer to this vision.- Read more -
Knockout's Tap Takeover event was a unique intersection of technology, community, and beer. In association with IC3D and Kendric Tonn, Knockout 3D scanned 20 brewmasters in Columbus, OH and 3D printed each one into tap handles. Kendric Tonn, a nationally regarded classical painter based in OH, then painted each one into a work of art. All 20 tap handles were featured at a benefit on January 23rd at Barleys Brewing, in Columbus, where we raised over 5k for schools in Franklinton!- Read more -
The KS1 3D scanner's functionality is expanded on every day. From prosthetics, to model making, to now furniture design, the KS1 is capable of scanning for any project. In this case study, we follow Alex Schultze as he uses the KS1 3D Scanner to re-imagine the coffee table. Have you ever asked yourself: "What if the end goal of human evolution was to be furniture?” Read on to see how Alex addressed this question.
The KS1, Knockout's mobile 3D scanner, is at its core a tool. How you want to use it is entirely up to you, but there is absolutely no doubt that the functionality of the device opens up a whole new world for your workflow. We are constantly featuring how other people use the mobile 3D scanner, so we decided to share some of the projects we have going on here at Knockout HQ.
If you're asking yourself what 3D scanning is, you're probably not the only one confused. It's a rather strange concept to comprehend, and looking past scanning things for fun is sometimes difficult. HOWEVER, once you start to look at 3D scanning as a tool in your workflow, the possibilities are limitless. Combine a 3D scanner with a 3D printer, like you would a 2D scanner with an inkjet, and the possibilities are infinite.
Western Reserve Academy and Olentangy High School are using the KS1 to teach their students about the power of a 3D workflow. By combining 3D scanning and 3D printing, the students understand the capabilities of additive manufacturing and learn how to manipulate objects in three dimensional programs.
