Arr! The folks from Pirate 3D say they’re now in active production of their low-cost 3D printer, the Buccaneer. We’re not certain when it will ship, but it sounds like it will be very soon.
According to a spokesperson, the number of orders have been “substantial”. This may grow even larger as we understand the company is set to release additional features on the printer in coming weeks.
The Buccaneer includes a beautiful exterior case that looks far more expensive than the inexpensive USD$497 price of the Buccaneer.
We’re also fascinated by the revolutionarily simple method of holding plastic filament spools - they’re just dropped on the top of the machine.
