早在數星期之前,定價 400 美元的 Buccaneer 3D 打印機就已經名聲大響。而這款 3D 打印機終於在 Kickstarter 平台建立項目,並且在數小時內就達到公司 10 萬美元定的籌集目標。加上,該項目在 Kickstarter 平台還將持續多 29 天,應該可以籌集更多的資金。

Article : Masses Flock to Cheap Buccaneer 3D Printer, Kickstarter Goal Kicked Within Hours

早在數星期之前,定價 400 美元的 Buccaneer 3D 打印機就已經名聲大響。而這款 3D 打印機終於在 Kickstarter 平台建立項目,並且在數小時內就達到公司 10 萬美元定的籌集目標。加上,該項目在 Kickstarter 平台還將持續多 29 天,應該可以籌集更多的資金。

為什麼粉絲們對 Buccaneer 有那麼大的吸引力呢?這一定程度上歸功於它的提前預定促銷模式。現在,預定一個打印機加墨盒只需247 美元,並且理論上會在 2014 年的 2 月送達。你可能沒聽過這種促銷方式吧,不過它確實很奏效。另外,Buccaneer 的下一個版本現在也接受預定,送達時間與之前一樣,不過價格稍貴,需要 347 美元。

正如該公司的執行官 Roger Chang 所稱,這款 3D 打印機很容易操作,用家體驗是其制勝的法寶。Buccaneer 所有的設置事先都已準備好,無需用家自己去組裝零件。只要將機器 開啟,它就可以工作。它還可以與任何電子設備連接,不管是 IOS 還是 Android,所以它可以打印任何設備上的任何模型。

We’ve been buzzing about the sub-$400 Buccaneer 3D printer for a couple of weeks now. And this morning, at 8am PST/11am EST, Pirate3D finally launched its Kickstarter campaign. Now, just hours later, the company has already met its funding goal.

That was lightning fast. The company set out a $100,000 goal, and just four hours later, twice that amount has been raised. It’s almost unimaginable how far the funding can go, considering there are 29 days left in this campaign.

Pirate3D surprised fans by making an early-bird offer that was too good to refuse — a 3D printer plus cartridge combo for just $247, with a ship date of February 2014. That is, frankly, unheard of for this technology. Unfortunately, the promotion is sold out at this point. The next tier offers the same bundle and release date for $347 (plus $50 shipping in the U.S.). As of this writing, this too is almost gone, but there are 123 spots still available. From there, more tiers are available at the same price, with ship dates scheduled further out, as well as a developer tier and a premium package.

The speed and veracity of interest is stunning, as pledges come pouring in. So if you’re interested in the Buccaneer, you may not want to wait too long to snag it. (You can do so here.) Not sure? Then check out the promotional video below.

I agree completely with Chief Executive Roger Chang, in that accessibility and user experience are the keys to making 3D printers widely adopted. And now that a budget option is available — and being wildly embraced by the public — you can bet the competition is paying attention. We can’t wait to see if/how that influences the market.

From where we sit, it looks like a broad-based maker revolution has begun — and gotten off to a tremendous start.
