3D printer manufacturer New Matter launched a new crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter with the MOD-t (2nd Gen), already raising $50,778 of the $100,000 goal.
New Matter just launched the MOD-t (2nd Gen) in a new Kickstarter campaign. The upgrade of the second generation promises more power, wireless control, and an improved type of filament control. It follows in the footsteps of the successful MOD-t printer, launched on IndieGoGo last year. The printer was 182% funded.
The pitch for the MOD-t (2nd Gen) is “the world’s most elegantly simple 3D printer delivers HQ prints up to 30% faster than in the first generation” which isn’t necessarily saying much but banks on previous pledgers coming back for more.
However, perhaps due to the company’s reputation of being the “first” to introduce an internet connected, cloud-controlled 3D printer in 2014, this strategy seems to work. So far, 239 backers pledged $50.778 of the $100,000 goal. There are still 29 days to go.
Pledging $199 will get you the early bird option of the 3D printer, regular backers will have to pay $249. New Matter wants to deliver the printer in April 2018 to the first backers.
Since the launch of the original Mod-t, the market of budget 3D printers has become crowded. The Mod-t (2nd Gen) now competes with the likes of Monoprice Select Mini ($199, review here), XYZ DaVinci Mini ($289, review here), the Anet A8 ($209, review here), and a lot of Prusa i3 clones, some of which deliver better results than expected.
So, what does the MOD-t (2nd Gen) got to offer?
