Mexican Company Making 3D Technology AffordableBy Dania Vargas Austryjak
Home 3D printing available soon
Three-dimensional printing, commonly known as 3D printing, has permeated the creative market in different areas. It is used in the creation of prototype models, architectural scale models, and even fashion. In recent years this technology has become more and more accessible, turning out to be a desirable gadget to have at home or school. Although the cost might not be too affordable, Mexican firm Colibrí 3D is set to launch an affordable desktop 3D printing machine.
Colibrí 3D, alongside InterLatin, has developed a unique and affordable product aimed at bringing 3D printing technology to Mexican households. The Colibrí HOME 3D Printer will be able to provide the user with the ability to create toys, home accessories and materials for school projects.
The printer “combines a solid, durable structure with a sleek, high quality design,” Erika Santos, told Marketing Manager for Interlatin on 3DPrint.com. “In fact, it is available in several colors to match any need.” It has a printing volume capacity of 100x100x120mm and includes a resourceful application that is used as an interface to build and modify 3D designs.
Colibrí HOME 3D Printer is expected to be launched in late July and sold at a cost of US $300. The partnership is targeting schools, as Santos has stated that “InterLatin is seeking to approach the Mexican Government in order to develop a subsidy program that allows them to provide 3D printers to schools throughout the country, so children and teenagers can use this technology as an advanced learning tool.”
Though the printer will be available in Mexico, the company is currently working with a distributor in the United States in order to increase the device’s international market presence.
