InStash has come a long way since we thought 3D printers came with those dorky glasses. But we’re still mightily enthused about the concept of fabricating objects so easily. This hot pink owl? I made it myself!
3DMonstr (you guessed it, still in Kickstarter phase) bills itself as a next generation 3D printer. The entrepreneurs say they found a gap in the market when looking for a printer that could print a rocket engine. Story checks out–I run into that all the time. They wanted something with a big build volume that was also modular and easy enough to use. They’re also proud of the four extruders. The beast prints at 110 mm/s and will give you resolution up to 40 microns. The largest of the machines boasts a build volume of 24″x24″x24,” bigger than almost any owl found in nature.
The company also promises the machine can make chocolate, frosting, and cheese. A frosted cheesy chocolate owl? Only if they get funded.
