Micro 3D Printer – Less than a year ago, the least expensive 3D printer was easily over $1,000. The cost barriers are quickly coming down and the Micro 3D printer may be purchased for as little as $199. The Micro 3D is made for the consumer market and small enough to fit on any desktop. This small 3D printer is currently on Kickstarter, and its low cost has made it an overwhelming success. The company received their requested $50,000 of funding in a few hours, and raised over a million in less than a day. If tinkering around is your thing, then here’s the chance to get a 3D printer at a reasonable price.
