PocketMaker

Going into a little more detail, we find that PocketMaker is a printer similar in size to a 80mm cube side with weight of only 850 grams.

A peculiarity that I have found quite interesting and that can save a lot of head warm-ups is the fact that interchangeable nozzles can be used, something that will mean that you do not have to worry about injector clogging. According to its designers, the PocketMaker can work with PLA o ABS, as well as with the manufacturer's own spools and standard 1,75 mm thick filament.

If you are interested in getting a unit, tell you that today the company responsible for its development is seeking financing through Indiegogo where you can buy your unit at the price of U.S. dollar 99. If you want to wait for it to reach the market, the price will rise to U.S. dollar 149. If the project manages to be financed, the first units should reach their owners as of May 2017.
