DeltaMaker, the latest 3D printer company to raise money via crowdfunding, has surpassed its funding goal of $107,000 two weeks after launching the project on Kickstarter. With 174 backers pledging more than $115,000 (and counting) to fund the project, the company announced it is moving into the production phase.
DeltaMaker’s clean and elegant appearance positions the 3D printer as an entertainment piece, fit for desktops, classrooms, living rooms, waiting rooms and more, according to the company.
“A 3D printer doesn’t have to look like a microwave oven,” says Zack Monninger, one of the company’s four founders. “We created a 3D printer that runs faster, looks better and is just more fun to watch. The DeltaMaker prints big and it prints fast!”
Deltamaker’s announcement comes on the heels of Formlabs announcing that it is entering production on its 3D printer after raising nearly $3 million in pre-orders via Kickstarter.
