Top 10 Most Funded 3D Printers

Many companies claim to have the world’s first or best, it may even be the cheapest or the highest quality. Most superlatives are hard to navigate in a market where everyone is pushing to advance his/her own products. So how do we know if a claim is actually factual?

Melissa Fassbender, editor of Product Design & Development, wanted to know the answer. So, she compiled a list of the top 10 most funded 3D printers on Kickstarter. The printers’ titles appear as they do on their Kickstarter page, superlatives included.
