Cheap 3D printer is Kickstarter hit

See on Scoop.itM-learning, E-Learning, and Technical Communications

A 3D printer available for under $300 has experts asking whether the technology is about to go mass market.

Danielle M. Villegas‘s insight:

In my efforts to embrace the "geek mom" side of being TechCommGeekMom, I like to share emerging technologies that I find interesting. Regular readers know that I’m fascinated with 3D printing, thanks to a project I did for a class last summer. I’ve wanted to get a 3D printer, but alas, most are rather expensive (and I also don’t know where I’d put it in my house). However, with the introduction of the 3D printer mentioned in this article, it looks like the cost might be starting to come down quite a bit, which is a good thing. I would be interested in more information about the quality of the 3D objects that are printed in comparison to other higher-priced printers, but for now, I’m happy with knowing that a more affordable printer is in the process of being made and funded through Kickstarter. Check this article out for more information on this latest model, the M3D Micro.
