Kickstarter Success for $99 BuildOne 3D Printer Shows Consumers Still Want to 3D Print

The BuildOne – a realistic $99 3D Printer with auto leveling and WiFi which launched on Kickstarter – sold over 1000 units in just 5 days. It has raised over $200 thousand (twice its initial goal) and showed once again that while the hype may be over, a large number of consumer still want to 3D print at home.

Robotic Industries, the team behind it has already led over several successful Kickstarter backed products including the Arduino compatible Digispark. This campaign focuses on one of the most affordable and easy to use 3D printers ever.

Designed for professional and consumer use, and available now on Kickstarter, it includes everything you need to get started. Unlike 3D printers many times the price, the BuildOne is completely self-leveling and has built in WiFi, allowing the user to plug it in and start printing.

“The BuildOne redefines what it means for a 3D printer to be affordable and easy to use, with a print quality and experience that raises the bar for sub-$500 printers” said team leader, Erik Kettenburg. The BuildOne makes it possible for anyone to create with the magic of 3D printing.

The BuildOne was designed to offer:

  • Simple design, reliable operation: Powered by precision lead screws and an innovative one piece base, the BuildOne requires no major maintenance and no calibration.
  • Industry leading price and value: At $99 for a fully featured 3D printer, including WiFi and automatic bed leveling, the BuildOne is unmatched in value and price.
  • High quality, versatile printing: Printing at layer heights of 50-350 microns and supporting all standard 1.75mm filaments, including ABS with the optional heated bed upgrade, the BuildOne matches or exceeds the quality and accuracy of most 3D printers.

The Robotic Industries team has collectively raised nearly 1 million dollars on Kickstarter and has delivered to over 15,000 customers. They bring the experience to deliver the BuildOne and change the 3D printing market.

The BuildOne’s industry leading features, ease of use, and affordable upgrades make it appealing to everyone from beginners to the most veteran users. The build one has a 125mmx125mmx125mm print volume, and prints at speeds over 70mm/s with layer resolutions as low as 50 microns, besting printers over 10x its price.

The BuildOne is available for pre-order now via Kickstarter and will ship in starting in September 2017. Quantities are limited to ensure timely delivery.
