The Micro 3D Printer was developed in Bethesda, MD by co-founders Michael Armani and David Jones.
According to TechCrunch, “the Micro originally sold for $199 for early birds and has since risen by $100. It’s a tiny printer…with a 4.5 cubic-inch build volume and a special internal spool that holds the filament inside the printer’s case. It can build objects 4.5 inches high.”
Supposedly, “you’ll be able to search for an open-source object and print it right from the app. The app resizes the object and prepares it for printing and the wee printer does the rest. It also has a self-leveling print bed.”
Update: The Micro 3D Printer has now been funded more than $3m on Kickstarter in just three days.
