Simple, affordable, 3D Printing is now available to anyone thanks to SparkMaker. The company has announced the release of their one-button desktop 3D Printer that brings the quality of SLA printing to the masses with a $99 starting price on the upcoming Kickstarter run. Now anyone, with a computer and a spark of creativity can unlock the magic of 3D printing.

Although 3D Printing has been popular for several years, the hardware has been expensive preventing many from exploring the endless creative possibilities it allows. Adding to that, complicated design software and 3D modeling experience was a prerequisite to working in 3D. SparkMaker changes everything, with one-button print simplicity, easy load multi-color resins, and print-ready downloadable designs.

They have created a system so simple and effective that anyone can begin 3D printing in only a few moments. It’s as easy as downloading a free design to an SD card, inserting it into SparkMaker and pressing the button. SparkMaker is putting the power of 3D Printing into the hands of their users for less than $100 dollars, a remarkable feat considering the technology and superior printing quality of the device.

SLA is generally superior to the typical FDM printing method for a number of applications. In FDM printing, resolution is a factor of the nozzle size and the precision of the extruder movements. This fast printing method is prone to errors and inaccuracies which results in blocky, rough, edges. In contrast, SLA creates smoothly curving, natural contours that result in incredibly precise finished 3D models that have a greater resolution and better accuracy than the FDM method.

To begin pre-sales and offer special incentives to early adopters SparkMaker is launching a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter with early adopter pricing as low as $99 USD. Check out the features below:

  • Super early bird price from only $99
  • High resolution comparable to DLP
  • High precision 1/128 stepping motor
  • Offline printing by SD card
  • Easy status monitoring with RGB light
  • Free database of print-ready 3D models
  • Ample build area: 102*56*125mm
