Desktop Factory 3D Printer – small scale 3D printer


This Desktop Factory 3D Printer is priced (and sized) to please. For US$4,995 you get a rapid prototyper the size of a large laser printer that can make anything up to 125ci (approximately 2 litres) in volume. The manufactured parts are tough enough to be thrown around a room (must be a 3D printer standard) and are made using a halogen light source and plastic powder instead of more expensive UV cured polymers. These non-exotic materials mean the Desktop Factory material costs works out to be a very affordable US$1 per cubic inch. You can’t buy them just yet, but they’re taking names so stay tuned.

The Desktop Factory 3D printer builds durable, functional models from the bottom up, one layer at a time. The Desktop Factory 3D printer has a build speed comparable to existing 3D printing technologies, and produces robust parts that are strong enough to be thrown across a conference room table!
