Personal 3D Printing May Be One Kickstarter Campaign Away

3D printing innovator Sylvain Charpiot's unique 3D printer, named Galatéa, can craft a full-sized plastic chair in the same time—about 2 hours—most machines make a small bowl. Charpiot hopes his company Drawn will realize one of 3D printing's dreams: allowing customers to easily customize and obtain their own products. If the vibrant color and appearance of Galatéa's products look familiar, it's because it's made from the same plastic found in LEGOs. The company is currently accepting crowdfunding via Kickstarter to amp up its presence at tradeshows; contributors can receive a range of 3D printed products in return for funding.
