MOD-t 3D Printer is the Cheapest 3D Printer Yet

by Shane McGlaun

3D printers are very useful devices and there are plenty of them on the market today. You will spend at least $500 or more on most of the commercially available printers. That means that a lot of us who might like to play with a 3D printer, but aren’t yet ready to invest haven’t bought one. That is changing with a new 3D printer that has turned up on Indiegogo.

New Matter’s minimal MOD-t printer is designed to print items using PLA just as other popular printers like the MakerBot Replicator Mini and others use. The MOD-t is able to print layers as thin as 0.2mm. The printer will also work with a suite of user-friendly apps for creating and modifying 3D models, as well as a curated library of designs you can start with.

Early backers of the MOD-t’s Indiegogo campaign were able to get the printer for just $149 to $199, but those units are already sold out. Now, $249 will get you a printer, which is still a bargain as 3D printers go. Keep in mind that there’s another $40 fee for U.S. shipping, and $90 for international buyers, so that does add to the price a bit.

Regardless, that sub-$250 base price should make it a very popular printer.
