With a combination of accessible features, smart packaging, and a $999 price point, it’s obvious that the Dremel Idea Builder is a machine aimed squarely at the mass market.
Wow! How cool is this? While the price point is still well out of my budget, it is certainly more affordable than many of its competitors, the biggest one being MakerBot. I think what appeals to me is that Dremel is a well-known brand associated with quality and with providing tools that are user-friendly in the creative arena. So, I have a feeling that this new tool will certainly be reaching for that same quality and user experience. Time will tell if it truly can compete with other 3D printers on the market in regards to ease of use as well as the quality of the final output products.
Dremel, if you are reading this, I’m more than happy to be a reviewer/tester for this product! 😉
