DeltaMaker, an Orlando, Florida based startup, is bringing a touch of elegance to personal 3D printers with a new product launch on crowdfunding website Kickstarter. Over the first five days, the campaign has raised over $60,000 towards a $107,000 goal. TheKickstarter campaign offered early adopters deep discounts. The “best deal ever” tier, selling printers for $499 each, sold out in 48 minutes. Printers are currently available for $1399, heading towards a final Kickstarter price of $1,599. After the campaign ends, the printer is expected to retail for $1,999, with initial Kickstarter shipments targeted for June.
The printer’s “linear delta robot” design is unique among printers currently available to consumers. The delta approach to 3D printing was first introduced in 2012 by Johann Rocholl’s Rostock project. The DeltaMaker is one of the first fully assembled delta printers to be offered to consumers. The elegant symmetric design differentiates the DeltaMaker from other 3D printers currently on the market.
The DeltaMaker startup team includes Bob Houston, Robin Lopez, Zack Monninger, and Craig Rettew. All four founders have undergraduate degrees in engineering and have worked in industry for companies such as IBM, Lockheed Martin, and FLIR Systems.
