3D printing is set to change the world, allowing users to create almost anything from the comfort of their own homes.
Earlier this week a 3D printer named The Micro hit Kickstarter by storm, hitting it's funding goal of $50,000 in just 11 minutes. Now the Micro has just broken $2 Million.
Now what is the fuss all about? Well here is a video which will hopefully explain.
Measuring at just 7.3in (or 18.5cm) square and weighing 1kg (2.2lbs), the device will be easy placed and move around the home. It can be used with Windows, Mac or Linux and will be compatible with a range of 3D model formats.
The Micro is designed to be accessible to everyday users, with more advanced settings available to the 3D printing enthusiast. The interface is designed to be easy to use, making a 3D print just a simple drag and drop away.
Retail pricing is unconfirmed, but it is expected to be in the same $299 dollar price bracket or potentially cheaper.
Now some of you guys are thinking "Mark this is a PC forum, does this really apply to us?", yes it does. Imagine what we as pc enthusiasts and modders could do with a 3D printer, what custom parts we could make to modify our cases just that little bit further.
I challenge all of you here to think of one good thing you could make from a 3D printer, specifically with PC modding in mind. It can be anything big or small scale, all I want you to do is post it!
As always post your thoughts and feelings on this article below.
