A new 3D printer has been launched by Kickstarter this month and already raised over $150,000 thanks to over 500 backers, with still 27 days remaining on its campaign. The unique 3D printer is equipped with the world’s lightest direct extruder weighing jest 219 g and can be expanded using the Raspberry Pi mini PC. Standard features include a 7 inch touchscreen display and OctoPrint integration.
