3D Printer Project Overshoots Fundraising by 600%

3D printing is an amazing phenomenon. So is Kickstarter.

Brook Drumm from printrbot.com designed a new, easy to build, inexpensive 3D printer for the home. To get it into production, he needed to raise $25,000. So he created a project on Kickstarter.

Instead of raising $25,000, he’s already raised $171,000! I can’t wait to have one of these machines!

Imagine – the next time a plastic doohickey on one of your kitchen devices breaks, instead of throwing the entire unit out because you can’t get a replacement doohickey, you just download or create a blueprint for the piece and make it yourself at home!
