The Micro is a $200 3D printer that can make a teacup in an hour April 7, 2014Posted by sandyclaus in 3D Printing.
To keep costs down, Armani and his team reduced The Micro’s volume. He said that during manufacturing it’s important to remember that product-size scales to the third power. If the device is made half the size in one dimension, it’s actually being reduced by a factor of eight in terms of weight, material cost and shipping. “That’s one way that we can pass savings on to the end-user.”
