This has been a crazy week for 3D printers on Kickstarter. First we got the super affordable DIY QU-BD One Up and then yesterday came the professional grade Helix. The next 3D printer to hit Kickstarter sits comfortably in between both.
Plastic Scribbler, a company out of Georgia, took to Kickstarter a few weeks ago to fund Asterid – an open source 3D printer with an 8″ x 8″ x 8″ build volume. Unlike most 3D printers on Kickstarter, the Asterid comes in two flavors – the 1000S and the 1000HB. The former has a plate glass build platform whereas the latter has a heated borosilicate glass built platform.
