The PocketMaker 3D is a 3D printer that gets rid of all the frills that other competing devices offer. Rather than a gargantuan machine that doubles as a laser printer or document scanner, the PocketMaker 3D is about the size of an alarm clock and focuses entirely on 3D printing.
PocketMaker 3D eschews the features that other additive manufacturing devices offer in order to make it a more attractive product. The downside of loading a device with features is that it tends to run up the price. The PocketMaker 3D is far more affordable than its competitors, making it more likely to be purchased as a desk-side gadget.
Though the PocketMaker 3D accepts standard PLA and ABS filaments, consumers have the option of purchasing PLA filaments in white, cyan, pink, and yellow that were designed specifically for the machine.
