We’ve been following M3D and their fully assembled Micro 3D printer from the beginning. M3D’s Kickstarter campaign was one of the most successful 3D printer campaigns of all time. Their relatively low funding goal of $50,000 was reached in a matter of minutes and eventually helped the M3D Micro campaign rack up over $3.4 million in funding.
Affordable and pre-assembled
When you are looking for a small affordable 3D printer but you don’t want to assemble it yourself – M3D’s Micro could be a great choice. It comes pre-assembled and with a very reasonable price tag.
The Micro is designed to be an easy-to-use device for beginners. It is as much as 10 times more energy efficient than most 3D printers and is as energy efficient as a phone or a tablet. The Micro has a direct USB connection, with which you can connect with Mac, PC or Linux. It supports many different materials: ABS, PLA, nylon, professional, chameleon et cetera.
The Micro 3D Printer is safe to use
M3D wants to provide customers with a safe to use consumer 3D printer, manufactured with high quality standards. The Micro is the only consumer-friendly 3D printer with an UL safety rating, as well as FCC and CE certifications. Unlike many consumer 3D printers, The Micro 3D printer features a non-heated print bed, making it a great choice for children to use. The Micro is designed and assembled by hand in the USA using a combination of high-quality custom imported and domestic components.
