An easy-to-use, affordable 3D printer named MOD-t has hit Indiegogo for crowdfunding today, and is already enjoying a ton of popularity. The current early bird special offers the full kit for $149, while the final retail price will sit at $249. Though a low pricetag goes a long way to bringing 3D printing to the masses, the developer, New Matter, and their design partner, Frog, are going to equally great lengths to create make the printing process simple and accessible.
A lot of the focus on that front is through their desktop and mobile apps, which will showcase a curated store of designs which users can purchase, preview, and edit before printing. Meanwhile, designers get to make money by selling their blueprints. The MOD-t online catalog will show off finished products shared by other users, and show plenty of information about the designer that cooked it up.
The printer itself moves the building platform along two axes, leaving the extruder stationary. Casing will be available in black and white, enabling it to fit in just about anywhere around the house. The MOD-t should be shipping sometime in between February and May 2015. Any takers? Get backing MOD-t at Indiegogo before those early bird specials run out.
