I've had the chance to use almost every major consumer 3D printer in the market. I also had the incredible opportunity to work at M3D, where we built the most successful 3D printer that has ever been on kickstarter. Consumer 3D printers are empowering makers, and helping us build our projects cheaper, faster and better.
The printer on the right, is the ReadyBox. It was built by a fellow lab manager, and mechanical engineering student, Brett Potter. It is at least 8 times faster than the leading consumer 3D printer on the market. Working every day with industrial grade 3D printer makes you think that these consumer printers are useless, I'm glad I get to work with ReadyBox every day to remind me otherwise.
