Tech E-Commerce Leader Monoprice Adds a High-Quality 3D Printer to Its Product Line
RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Electronics e-commerce and direct sales leader Monoprice is transforming
the 3D printing landscape with the availability of its newest product,
the Dual Color Extrusion 3D Printer. Initially previewed at the 2014 CES (News - Alert)
show, Monoprice's debut 3D Printer model makes 3D printing more
financially accessible to consumers by offering the lowest-priced, dual
color 3D printer currently on the market.
"Monoprice is excited to offer high-quality 3D printing with dual color
capability, along with a number of included extras and free shipping, at
under $1,200 - a price level that is unheard of in the industry," said
Luke Grant, Monoprice's Vice President of Marketing. "We are looking to
have a major impact in the fast-growing field of 3D printing, and make
this valuable technology more accessible to a wide range of consumers,
businesses, schools, and researchers."
Well-versed techies and consumers who are new to 3D printing alike can
appreciate the new 3D
Printer (Product ID# 11614). Setting apart Monoprice's
value-conscious 3D printer, using the standard 1 kg, 1.75mm
filament spool, is its dual colorextrusion and ability to print with
ABS (News - Alert), PLA or PVA filament, comparable in quality to competitors' models,
which can cost more than $2,500. The extruder supports layer thicknesses
of 0.1 ~ 0.5mm, and can support heat tolerances of up to 250°C. The unit
prints at a rate of 24cc per hour.
"Monoprice is working to create a new community of 3D printer users,
eliminating the notion that these devices are solely for high-end
seasoned tech users," said Anthony Gih, Monoprice's Product Manager for
camera and imaging products. "Whether you purchase the 3D printer as an
inexpensive way to prototype your next big idea or to create everyday
useful objects such as a cup or a customized picture frame, Monoprice's
affordable 3D printer can be used by entrepreneurs, students, engineers,
and hobbyists alike."
