Tiko3D started a Kickstarter campaign in 2015 and after raising $3 million, the company is now ready to start shipping their 3D printer. From noon until midnight on the 28th of November, the printer will be offered at a low, low price of $179. After this, the price will then increase slightly (to $199) for regular pre-orders.
Matt Gajkowski, CEO of Tiko3D said “At $199, we’ve kept our promise of keeping Tiko affordable and accessible to all innovators!”
The company has gone with a delta style printer, which allows for high-precision prints and the unibody design has kept the manufacturing cost down. All up, the printer weighs a mere 3.7lbs, has a build volume of just under 2.3 litres and measures in at 15.4 x 8.7 x 9.3 inches. According to the company, the printer can print at a layer height of 50 microns and can use a number of different materials, including ABS, PLA, NYLON and HIPS.
