MakiBox Home Page
A friend just pointed out to me that the 3D Printer upstart "MakiBox" which was crowd funded earlier this year, opened its online store on Christmas Day.
They have their mini-flagship complete printer set for sale at $200... WHAT!?
The printer is tiny but still manages a build area of 110mm x 150mm x 90mm (X,Y,Z). The $200 version does not have a heated bed; there is a $300 that does.
There are videos of the prototype makibox printing; notice that it does not use belts (goodbye backlash?)
At this very low price, it seems hard to be the loser in this deal. It would seem that even if you just used the printer for parts, you would end up with 4 stepper motors, a printr-board, and a Bowden Extruder...
Buying one now
I will report back to let you know if I was robbed or got an awesome deal
