New Matter Launches 3D Printer To Market

Pasadena-based 3D printer manufacturer New Matter has released its 3D printer, the MOD-t 3D Printer, into general availability, the company said Monday. New Matter said the printer is available now for $399. New Matter is looking to make 3D printing more accessible to consumers, using PLA filament, and an online marketplace of existing 3D printable designs. New Matter says its 3D printer features a "sleek, minimalist" design designed to be a showcase of a user's home. New Matter said the general availability release comes after it successfully filled the pre-orders for 2500 supporters, who put up $680,000 in its initial production crowdfunding campaign. New Matter is part of Idealab, and is led by Steve Schell.
