About a few days ago we reported on the Micro 3D printer that begun as a Kickstarter project. The project, according to its creators, managed to hit its original goal in about 11 minutes and if you thought that was impressive, the folks behind the printer have recently posted another update on the project where they are reporting that the Kickstarter project has since managed to hit the $2 million mark in 3 days!
We have to admit that this is extremely impressive and for those who are interested in getting their hands on the printers, you are still able to back the project which will nab you the device once the project has ended and production begins. However with so many orders, there is a chance that your order could be delayed.
However the folk behind the project have stated that with more money coming in, it allows them to hire more staff, which in turn could help make the process a lot smoother which hopefully will not result in any unnecessary delays. They aren’t making any promises but it seems that they are doing everything that they can to make sure this will not happen.
For those unfamiliar with the Micro 3D printer, the printer is basically a small 3D printer that will fit on your desk, unlike other 3D printers which tend to be pretty huge. In fact according to the design, it seems that the Micro is well, micro, and is actually about the size of a cat, so you can only imagine how small it is.
The Micro will also come with a more intuitive software interface that lets you download plans and print, and with a weight of around 1kg, you can bring it with you from the home to the office no problem. It’s hard to say why the Micro is doing as well it is, but we can’t wait for them to start shipping it out.
