MakeX launches their first desktop FDM 3D printer Migo on Kickstarter

Following the crowdfunding success of the M-One DLP and M-Jewelry 3D printers, MakeX has launched the MIGO desktop FDM 3D printer on Kickstarter. Coming in a choice of two sizes, and five different colors, the machine has been designed with a “pick-up-and-play” approach, aimed to get families and children into 3D printing.

The standard MIGO 3D printer measures just 15.5 x 19.5 x 27 cm (L x W x H) with a build envelope of 10 x 12 x 10 cm (L x W x H). At this size, and made from a lightweight aluminium frame, it can easily fit in many places around the home, making it a highly portable maker toolkit.

The MIGO L is slightly bigger in size at 18.5 x 23.5 x 32.5 cm (L x W x H) and build volume of 15 x 15 x 15 cm.

Materials and control

MakeX has enabled the MIGO range to 3D print in both PLA and ABS filaments. The 3D printers are controlled wirelessly via creative apps specially developed by MakeX, allowing users to line up batch prints, and monitor progress online in real-time.

Both models are also supported by automated bed leveling, meaning that first time users can easily get started with the 3D printer out of the box.

Pricing and perks

The super early bird price for the standard MIGO is $149. Multi-machine packages are also available.

Visitors to formnext 2017 in Frankfurt will be able to see the MIGO and MakeX’s other 3D printers live from 14th to the 17th November in Hall 3.0, Booth G21.
