The South by Southwest conference is going on this week, and that usually means a sneak peak at some of the technology gadgets which will be released later in the year. Yesterday, Tinkerine unveiled a new 3D printer, sort of. They showed it off at the conference, however did not release any key specifications.
The Tinkerine Ditto Pro, will go on sale sometime in the next few months, with further details, and specs announced next month. It will be priced at somewhere around $1900. In the early going they are specifically marketting this new printer towards the education fields. Makerbot has been dominant in its drive to bring its 3D printers into classrooms, especially in the United States. What Tinkerine seems to be doing is trying t undercut the $2500 price of Makerbot’s Replicator, and leapfrog them into classrooms worldwide.
The Ditto Pro will be a step above the Ditto+, which sells for $1249 unassembled, or $1549 fully assembled. It has a removable print bed which measures 7 x 8 x 9 inches, prints with PLA filaments, and has a very open airy design about it. Tinkerine also will include their own patented software which was created to give students and everyday users a very simple, yet productive user experience.
Tinkerline is a relatively new company, established less than 2 years ago, located in Vancouver, Canada. In addition to selling 3D printers, they also offer rapid prototyping as a service. Discuss this new printer at the Ditto Pro Forum Thread.
