3D printer "for all" gathered on Kickstarter 1 million dollars instead of 50 million (just 2 days)

Habré has repeatedly published articles from the owners of 3D-printers. Many owners have complained about the complexity of configuring a device such as a pair of writers at all sorry that it has acquired a device for home use. Actually, the problem with many models of modern 3D-printers - is the difficulty in setting up, plus a very catchy software. Not all models this is the case, but many.

1. The most "rational" from the perspective of usable area;
2. Lightweight (about a kilogram) and small;
3. Automatic billing level and calibration;

5. The most energy efficient;

8. You can select several colors: silver, black, blue, orange, green;
