3D Printers

Xiaomi entering the 3D printing market?

Images of a 3D printer with Xiaomi’s branding appear to have been leaked. The news was broken by GizmoChina and it seems to show that the Chinese tech-giant may be about to enter the 3D printing market. The images seem to show a device which looks like a 3D printer with the company’s famous ‘mi’ branding.

There has been no confirmation from Xiaomi as of yet, meaning talk of the printer is all but speculation thus far. However, the images do point towards the arrival of a 3D printer produced by the Chinese brand. Speculating on the images, the printer seems to be quite simple in design with the outline of a delta type 3D printer visible through the hazy material covering what could be the build chamber. In the context of Xiaomi’s other products it would be expected that the exploration into 3D printing will bring both competitive and affordable prices.
