The Japanese company Roland has recently introduced with a new 3D printer called the iModela iM-01. This is one of the tiny device that can easily set on your desk next to your computer or even on top of it. So nice looking small in size is much attractable to users.
They are still expensive, but have come down to the point where enthusiasts can start saving up and buying one. It requires a USB connection to access the associated software the 3D models you want to print are loaded into and uses a mix of plastic, wax, balsa wood, and foam to produce your creations.
This tiny 3D printer is perfect for printing your own collectible like those you find in stores selling Japanese toys, trinkets – and basically anything that’s small enough to fit into a pocket. It might not be the fastest, or most efficient printer available on the market. The iModela is around $1,000, so it has to offer something to make it worth the investment.
