A few years ago I tried to buy/support a 3D printer on Kickstarter called the Tiko Unibody printer. I liked that it was lamp sized rather than boxy because easy to store in an apartment and can be used for small things. There were some other reasons too but I forgot it has been so long. Anyway, they declared defeat and are no longer making it.
So now I'm in the market for a small 3D printer. Enough time has past that there are more options. I'm thinking about getting this Micro printer. Any advice or things to be wary of? I know it has a sprint small area. That's something I want though. I'm only going to make small things (or the rare prototype of something larger that I'd print at Staples).
I don't mind. It's easy enough to unlock. The computer one was because I went to the Apple store two years at about 11pm. The credit card company felt that electronics stores close earlier so it was suspicious. This time it was a $400 purchase from a "strange" website. For a hotel, I'd have another card with me so could just use that.
That said, this particular account has been stolen on numerous occasions. So sometimes the suspicious things they find are real.
I didn't have time to make something nice. But it is something all of my own. I want to make a box for my house keys next (well, when I have time.) So being able to print a "bottom" and "hole" are useful. It's 2.5 inches square which is a bit smaller than I'll need for the keys. But I'm now confident that I have the skills to do it and the printer can handle it.
