Root is a desktop 3D printer that rolls affordability, convenience and compactness into one neat package. A great option for those who have been wanting to play with the technology but afraid of a lack of quality, the manufacturers of the address that fear head on. The Kickstarter page reads, "Are you frustrated with over promised and under delivered kickstarters? Do you want to create "things" you’ve imagined? Do you want to be an owner of an affordable and simple 3D printer that you won't be frustrated with? Root is the answer."

Over halfway to its $50,000 goal, the desktop 3D printer was created by GP3D, a subsidiary of Green Project Inc.. What sets this desktop 3D printer apart from the competition is an upgraded extruder able to print down to 100 microns, print plate along with customized clips and its Germinate software.
