The Micro is among the most successful 3D printers launched on Kickstarter, with over 10,800 devices pre-ordered last year, resulting in total of almost $ 3.5 Million in funding. While M3D has started delivering The Micro to Kickstarter backers earlier this year, the startup is now launching the affordable printer into the retail market.
At the annual New York City Maker Faire last week, M3D put up a retail version of The Micro with prices ranging from $ 399 to $ 499.
“The Micro’s retail launch represents the culmination of two and a half years of refinement and fine tuning, ensuring we have a strong and reliable 3D printer for enthusiasts, professionals and everyday consumers to enjoy,” said Michael Armani, M3D CEO. “People are waiting to discover 3D printing and we’re here to help.”
