3D printers normally don’t come cheap. Aiming to change that and 3D printing as a whole is Rylan Grayston, who’s behind the Peachy laser 3D printer. The project was recently launched on Kickstarter, where it raised over $140,000 in a span of 48 hours.
Peachy boasts of open-source hardware and software, which is just one of the reasons why people seem to pledging like crazy. The printer combines photolithographic printing, which uses a powerful laser beam to mold resin, and a saltwater-based drip process that changes the printed object’s height gradually.
