The first truly consumer 3D printer should be incredibly intuitive, easy to own, and seamless by design.

…And That’s Why We Made The Micro

It is the most affordable 3D printer that can be used right out of the box. Perfect for beginners and experts alike, just plug in the printer, download or create models, hit print, and watch your custom creations form right before your eyes.

The Micro is Designed For Everyone

Bring your ideas to life, turn them into businesses, educate, learn, personalize products, make toys, make jewelry, start a curriculum, run a modern workshop, and unleash your creativity. The power of creation is yours!

A Fantastic 3D Printing Experience

We’ve built The Micro with reliability, consistency, and accessibility in mind. Micro Motion Technology is a sensor and feedback system built into the print head, providing auto-leveling and auto-calibration. This means that every time you run the printer it works, even after thousands of hours of use! The Micro is not only a useful tool, it makes 3D printing an enjoyable experience for the every-day person.

Material & Filament options

You can use PLA or ABS, as well as our Micro filament spools or standard 1.75 mm filament spools available on the market.

What’s the difference? We made Micro filament spools so that people can print with more materials and colors, by adding $12 to their pledge amount per spool. These spools fit inside The Micro, allowing it to be portable and seamless. They weigh nearly 1/2 lb (225 g) of.That is enough material to make 45 of the vases from the time-lapse in our video!

The Micro filament spools are fed from inside the printer. Alternatively, you can use an external filament access port located on top of the extruder.

Software Options

3D printer software should be as fun and futuristic as the printer itself. That’s why we’ve designed the M3D software to be as interactive and enjoyable as a game, making sure it’s fully touchscreen-capable with a minimalist and simple-to-use interface. It allows you to search and browse countless objects online, organizing 3D models you’ve downloaded into an easy to view library. Just pick a model, drag it into the printer, adjust the model if needed, and hit print. Software shouldn’t be a barrier to 3D printing, and it’s our goal to make The Micro accessible to everyday users.

Advanced users can use the expert settings as well as other software such as open-source slicers.

What makes the Micro special?

Starting with a seamless design, we created the Micro by preserving the best features of existing printers and redesigning everything else. The Micro is powered by Micro Motion Technology™, a series of next generation innovations that, together, create precision at a fraction of the cost.

With Micro Motion Technology™, 3D printing has never been easier or more affordable. It’s plug-and-print with an ultra-modern software interface that allows you to scroll through ready-to-print digital objects. At the core of this technology is a microchip embedded within the print head that provides precision motion information, making the Micro so precise and robust that all you have to do is click print and watch it go
