STAMFORD, Conn. – As a team of Stamford-based engineers that designs and builds 3D printers, Zeepro would like to bring its innovative printers to commercial production with help from a Kickstarter fundraising campaign.
Zim, a 3D printer that prints high-quality 3D objects using various materials and colors, is the first consumer-oriented 3D printer to feature Ethernet and WiFi connectivity, according to the group’s Kickstarter page.
Zeepro intends to raise funds to start the first production batch of Zim. With six days left of the fundraiser, Zeepro has exceeded its goal of $300,000, raising $312,405 as of Wednesday.
“We have been working very hard on developing Zim, and we are really happy to share it with you today,” Zeepro wrote on the campaign page. “With your help, the Zim 3D personal printer will become a cornerstone in the new world of creativity and design.”
Zim is built with one or two extruders, that can be used to either print a 3D object in multiple colors or use one extruder to print in color while using the other extruder to print a support structure in PVA plastic, which dissolves in water, the page said.
