Consumer Friendly 3D Printer raised $1.89 Million in 2 Days

Still think 3D Printing is all hype? Tell that to M3D who has raised a whopping $1.89 Million dollars of their $50,000 goal on this week. With still 28 days to go, this 3D Printer company certainly has everyone's attention with their "First Truly Consumer 3D Printer" called the Micro.

Promising the features below, M3D's goal is to make 3D printing available to everyday consumers.

1. Most space-efficient 3D printer ever made.
2. Light-weight, portable design fits nicely on your desk.
3. Micro motion chip provides completely automatic leveling and calibration.
4. Most quiet 3D printer ever made.
5. Lowest power consumption 3D printer ever made.
6. Carbon fiber rods: light, sturdy, self-lubricating and long-lasting
7. Ceramic heater for rapid heat-up, power efficiency, reliability and safety.
8. Bold colors. Choose from Silver, Black, Blue, Red, Orange, and Green.
9. New filament materials like Chameleon PLA.
10. Inspirational Micro filament spools.
11. Modernized touch-capable software.
12. Replaceable print beds for alternative materials.
13. Replaceable nozzles for experimenters.
14. Designed for fast assembly in the US for quality control.
15. An ABS-based print bed allows you to print larger ABS parts.

Needless to say, consumers are drooling at the chance to get their hands on one of these babies before it's available to the general public. Early adopters will pick up this printer for only $199 (250 sold out), with estimated delivery date of February 2015. Pledge $899 and see your printer as early as August 2014 (only a handful left of 100). One thing is for sure, if the M3D "Micro" Printer can take some of the technical taboo out of 3D printing, at an affordable price no less, there is no doubt consumers are going to want a 3D printer in their home. We'll keep you updated when the "Micro" is ready to hit the streets.

This is just the beginning folks, 3D printing is here to stay. Just think about when the first dot matrix printer was introduced, and compare it to what we have today. Now flash forward 10 years from now to the 3D Printer, what do you see?
