Micro becomes highest funded 3D printer in the history of Kickstarter!
Micro has just wrapped up a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign for an accessible 3D printer. The M3D managed to raise a whopping $3.2 million by offering the device to early bird backers at the $199 tier and thousands more at the $299 tier. 11,855 3D printing enthusiasts backed this project all told.
Making an affordable and noobie-friendly 3D printer clearly has some appeal. Many higher-end printers cost $1,000 and up, but there's a new breed of affordable printers that include the PeachyPrinter and the MakiBot. Micro has managed to blow all of those out of the water as far as crowdfunding success goes, but we'll have to wait and see if it lives up to the hype. Any of you guys interested in taking up 3D printing? How cheap would it have to be for you to get started?
