With a pair of affordable new machines for consumer and commercial use, the Monoprice 3D printer stakes a claim for category leader.
Online retailer Monoprice has announced an ambitious expansion to their range of affordable 3D printers, with two new machines for consumer and commercial applications.
For these new products, Monoprice promises solid construction, versatility, rapid printing speeds, and accessibility for professionals and hobbyists alike. According to the official technical specs:
But let’s not ignore the existing offerings from Monoprice, which themselves have earned quite a bit of buzz in the 3D printing community:
If local customer support isn’t a factor in your purchasing decision, then there’s every possibility you could buy them cheaper from the original vendor.
Monoprice believes that 3D printing continues to be a high-growth segment, citing equity research analysts who forecast a market of $7 billion by 2020. In a press release, Monoprice president Bernard Luthi said:
“From prototyping to model design, 3D printing puts incredible capabilities in consumers’ and prosumers’ hands; however, high pricing has always been a barrier to accessibility. Now the category has gained popularity and costs have dropped to enable businesses and hobbyists to use the technology for a broad spectrum of applications.”
As a core strategy, the company is committed to regularly launching a new Monoprice 3D printer throughout the year — and into 2017 — to ensure the latest advances in 3D printing capability at the lowest industry prices.
“Since launching our first 3D printer two years ago, we’ve focused on expanding this category to drive down category costs, improve ease of use and grow to the ‘pro’ market. With no category leader, we see an opportunity to drive market dynamics by offering a diverse range of quality, simple-to-use devices. Ultimately, our mission is to become the most trusted, reliable shopping destination for best-in-class 3D printers sold at affordable prices that customers can feel good about.”
No category leader? We’re sure that a few other 3D printing companies would take objection to that!
