I love that 3D printers have become all the rage (as well as the very awesome ways that the technology is being implemented), but aesthetically speaking, the bothersome thing about 3D printers is their look. Many of them (if not MOST of them) just look like old, giant weird machines that don’t quite fit in with your office interior design plan, living room or anything along those line (sans a workshop in a shed or garage). Enter Solidoodle Press, with this new cute little 3D printer that looks much less out-of-place than your conventional 3D printer, and resembles more of an ordinary home appliance. I guess you can think of it as an Easy Bake Oven for adults.
This 512-inch fifth-gen machine is roughly the size of a sewing machine, and will go on sale this September for $600 (or $350 if you pre-order one). The Solidoodle Press comes with a variety of novice-friendly features, such as a protected spool to prevent the filament from jamming, as well as an automatically calibrating printing bed. Essentially, should you be a noobie/newbie in the exciting new world of 3D printing nearly anything at your heart’s desire, then this device might be a good option for you in terms of price, features, and looks.
