The engineers at Tiertime have created a new 3D printer in the form of the Cetus2 offering an innovative colour mixing solution that can be used to add extra creativity to your prints and also supports multimaterial printing if required. The Cetus2 has this month launched via Kickstarter and has already blasted past its required pledge goal raising over $100,000 thanks to nearly 300 backers with still 43 days remaining. Specially priced early bird pledges are now available for the unique project from roughly $199 or £150 (depending on current exchange rates), offering a considerable discount of approximately 35% off the final retail price, while the Kickstarter crowd funding is under way.
