With all the 3D printer projects on Kickstarter these days touting almost unbelievable features and prices it’s easy to become a little skeptical. When some of those companies take exceedingly long to deliver on backer rewards or fail to deliver at all and go silent to backer requests for updates–or even commit outright fraud–it certainly can raise alarm bells and throw the whole system of crowdfunding in doubt. And sometimes backers can be unreasonable in their requests, impatient of delays and that can give pause to those intrepid souls that decide to launch a new machine via crowdfunding.

Deltaprintr proved the naysayers wrong when they shipped their affordable Deltaprintr and Deltaprintr XL backer-only reward. After successfully shipping all their Kickstarter rewards, they recently started selling their Deltaprintr. Then they announced that they would be selling a new mini all-metal hotend, that was lightweight and priced very competitively. At Maker Faire, they showed off their latest product, the Delta Go.

Targeted at the educational market, the Delta Go is a small, portable printer that has many of the features found in high-end delta machines. But it will be very affordably priced. According to Deltaprintr’s founder and CEO, Shai Schechter, the printer will be around $400 – $500 pre-assembled.

Deltaprintr spread the word about the new printer on social media:

“Today we’re excited to announce the Delta Go. A compact, portable 3D printer shipping early 2016. Our goal from the beginning was to make 3D printing affordable for students and makers alike. Today, we’re one step closer to achieving that goal.”

LEDs let the user know when the Delta Go is ready to print

Deltaprintr has incorporated a number of improvements into their newest printer. The carriages are belt driven versus the Deltaprintr’s Spectra fishing line system. The carriages themselves appear to be beefier and don’t have backing plates. The hotend platform is magnetically attached to the arms and with the mini hotend installed weighs a mere 2 ounces, that’s right 2 ounces!

A circle of LEDs at the top of the printer alert the user to the printer’s status and also illuminate the print. The print bed is aluminum and ensures 0.01mm flatness. Gone are the finicky FSR sensors. For bed leveling the hotend simply makes light contact with the aluminum bed, which completes an electrical circuit. The Delta Go prints down to 100 microns and uses Cura for slicing. It looks to be a real solid machine. I’d certainly like to get my hands on one.
