As the science of 3D printing becomes more advanced, it was only a matter of time before “first truly consumer 3D printer” would be born. Small, easy to use, and (relatively) affordable, the Micro brings it all home.
According to the people who designed it, the Micro is simple enough for almost anyone to use, even those who only have a passing interest in 3D printing – one could certainly think of a worse way to learn about the process than buying a gadget that starts at under $300 and can fit on your desk.
You can learn a lot more about the Micro at its Kickstarter page here. With most Kickstarter projects that we cover here, there’s still a little bit of fundraising left to do if the goal hasn’t already been met. But the Micro has exceeded its original fundraising goal by an incredible margin, raising over $1.75 million more than its original $50,000 goal. And even though the goal has been met (and then some), you still have until May 7th to place your $299 pre-order for a Micro 3D Printer.
