When we talk about 3D printers, most of the time we would think of them to be something that is really, really expensive. You know, the kind that costs a whole bomb, and just when you thought that inkjet printing in color is expensive, raw 3D printing materials cost a whole lot more, not to mention the fact that you would need to have a proper design in place before you get to realize your ideas. The Micro is a consumer class 3D printer that has just launched on Kickstarter, where it hopes to raise enough cash to make it a reality so that the masses will be able to enjoy 3D printing right in the comfort of their own homes.
The early bird special would allow you to pick up The Micro for $199 a pop, where it is touted to be the “first truly consumer 3D printer; compact and accessible, seamlessly designed, and incredibly intuitive.” In fact, it is so easy to use that you can have it function right out of the box, now how about that? This is ideal for everyday users and experts, since it has been specially designed for anyone and everyone to bring their ideas to life. It does not matter if you are running a business, in the education line, learning, or simply having fun, The Micro is more than capable of creating items such as toys, jewellery, and even real engineering prototypes.
To begin your 3D printing adventure, all that you need to do is to plug in the printer, download or create models, press print, and presto! Your eyes will see your very own imaginative creations become a reality right before your very eyes. As The Micro does use open source software for experienced users, there is also an alternative option to make use of the M3D software that delivers a seamless, modern, user-friendly experience. It has the ability to print objects as tall as 4.6 inches or 116 mm.
