The Micro is the quietest and lowest power consuming 3D Printer out there. These features make it the ideal consumer 3D Printer out now. Also, it comes in a portable and light-weight design that will fit right on top of your desk.
Some of the technologies listed below are not widely popular yet. But these are already putting the positive impact in our day to day lives.
3D printing has been touted as the most amazing thing to happen to manufacturing since the assembly line. But the problem is that right now most 3D printers can only print the equivalent of plastic toys—plus a few guns, pizzas, and body parts here and there. But mechanical engineers of Princeton University have created such a 3D printer that can create fully 3D printed LED lights.
Microscope is such a thing that can amplify tiniest objects thousands of millions of time which can't be seen with the bare eyes. But the very interesting thing is, now you can turn your smartphone into a 1000x microscope. And for that what you need? Just a 3D printer!
3D printers are becoming very much popular. Every 3D printers, now-a-days, equip new parts and they create some superb 3D models. But, Yvo de Haas has created Plan B, an open source 3D printer that lets people print solid plastic objects by binding a thin layer of plastic powder with an old printer head.
3D printers are now becoming common. In fact, they are becoming a great helpful to us. But not all the 3D printers run on the same OS and there are some 3D printers that are quite complex to run. Hence, many people become disinterested using them. But lately, engineers have built 3DPrinterOS, the world's first open 3D Printing OS that is able to rule all other 3D printers.
Now a days, many 3D structures are being made with the help of 3D printers. But industrial designer Oluwaseyi Sosanya who is a graduate student from the Royal College of Art (RCA) has created a superb machine that can make flexible 3D structures out of wool and paper.
Now a days, markets are being fulfilled with high tech 3D printers. And now there's a new 3D printer called Printeer. The very important thing is this 3D printer is specially being designed for schoolkids.
Until now, Kickstarter has successfully funded many cool ideas. At present, a Mirco 3D printer is seeking fund for $50,000 goal via Kickstarter and the buzzing news is, the Micro 3D Printer project reached its goal within 11 minutes after launch!
3D printed materials are being increasingly used in fields such as manufacturing, technology and modelling. A 3D printed skull was recently implanted in a woman's brain, resolving a critical medical condition.
