Phlatprinter

www.phlatboyz.com

Allow us to introduce you to the Phlatprinter. The Phlatprinter is a special type of CNC machine (Pat Pending) invented by Mark and Trish Carew. After years of trial and errors we believe we have a robust machine that anyone can build. Most of the materials can be purchased at your local hardware store at a cost effective price that allows anyone to become a kit builder of their own designs.
To find out more about the Phlatprinter go the About Us page.



"Our aim is to keep this as simple as it can get with easy to follow step by step instructions and friendly helpful tech support. You can build this printer without any knowlege of electronics and power tools. We will walk you through the entire process and make it as simple as possible. Join with friends or your club and make it a project everyone can be involved in."



The name Phlatprinter (meaning Flat and Phat) is just a fun way to say that the printer prints on Flat media to create 3D objects and Its Phat becasue its just cool!



The name Phlatboyz (meaning Flat and Phat) are remote control aircraft that are designed by Mark Carew to be short and fat from their scaled up versions. Basically, cartoonish. The Phlatboyz came from an attempt to make an airplane that could do a power slide in the air, kinda like you could do on you bike when you were a kid.

They are a blast to fly IMHO



PhlatCode - Is a type of xyz coordinate language that lets your computer tell the machine where to cut, how fast ect..





-The Idea-

The idea behind the plans and phlatCodes are, instead of designing plans and creating them as a PDF or DXF now you just publish the Phlatprinter code to the community and they just down-load and print your plane. As for kits you could sell just your Phlatcodez, Sell entire kits you cut and mail and or share it just like people do today with PDFs and DXF plans.

The choice is finally yours!
