March 31, 2015: According to the developers the low price is the result of its rational and sleek unibody design. TIKO does not feature USB connection or a SD card slot, but is entirely controlled via a cloud-based software. In order to remove the printed object you have to lift the printer#s body. No coating is needed for the print bed as it can simply be bend to easily remove the object. The closed environment combined with a vent system ensures a stable temperature within the build chamber to prevent warping issues. A 1kg spool of non-propriertary 1.75 mm filament can be stored on the very top of the device.
