We need the Kickstarter community so that we can take this product, purchase and produce its components in large enough quantities and deliver it to the market at a reasonable price.

What makes a 3D printer successful? Crowdfunding the entire idea in just a few short days on Kickstarter. DeltaMaker did just that with its all-new, personal and affordable 3D printer by reaching their $107,000 goal long before their campaign was scheduled to end. With a truly elegant design, DeltaMaker allows form and function to seamlessly exist.
DeltaMaker is the first in its class to highlight not only finished prints, but the act of creation as well. Fit for classrooms, waiting rooms and living rooms, DeltaMaker proves that 3D printing doesn’t have to be a “behind-the-scenes” process. Imagine looking at a work of art vs. watching while it’s being created; when the DeltaMaker is operating, the machine is art-in-motion, and what it’s producing is also a intricate and beautiful.
The DeltaMaker offers 100 micron layer resolution capabilities while performing fused filament fabrication (FFF) with 1.75mm PLA or ABS plastic. With a 10” diameter by 11” tall build envelope, DeltaMaker offers an efficient footprint to build envelope ratio allow large prints with a compact desktop footprint.
“We need the Kickstarter community so that we can take this product, purchase and produce its components in large enough quantities and deliver it to the market at a reasonable price,” says Zack Monninger, co-creator of DeltaMaker. “…and it’s the Kickstarter community that’s going to enable us to do this in a way that, a few years ago, you never would have had the option to do.”
DeltaMaker is currently available on Kickstarter for the affordable price of $1,599 ($1,499 for students and teachers), and will ship to backers this coming August. Additionally, the team behind DeltaMaker is offering other rewards, such as DeltaMaker T-shirts and mini DeltaMaker desktop organizers, in exchange for supporting their project.
