An Orlando-based company has raised more than $90,000, towards a $107,000 goal, on Kickstarter for its 3D printer project in just one week.
DeltaMaker LLC is bringing a touch of elegance to personal 3D printers with its clean and symmetric 3D printer built on a delta robot platform.
The 3D printer features Fused Filament Fabrication using 1.75 mm filament, 100 micron layer resolution capability, approximately 9 x 11 inches build envelope, and rigid aluminum extrusion construction, to name a few. It is being positioned as a personal 3D printer that runs faster, looks better, and more fun to watch.
“This design enables printing of objects at high resolution without the speed limitations imposed by traditional 3D printer designs,” DeltaMaker’s Kickstarter campaign noted.
Behind the project is a four-member team with degrees in Aerospace, Electrical, Mechanical, and Software engineering. According to the campaign, the team is targeting June 2013 for the initial shipment of the printer.
DeltaMaker will be shipping fully assembled 3D printers, and included with the unit are power supply, a starter spool of filament, and an SD card with sample objects ready to print.
