For those who haven’t heard of this, the Toybox 3D Printer basically combines custom hardware with a child-friendly app to offer push button operation. Its patented print bed can bend for easy removal of models and prints at a resolution of 200 microns, while pre-calibration makes setup very quick. That’s not all, the app offers a library of over 500 ready-to-print designs, and also lets you draw your own creations. Read more for a hands-on video demo and additional information.
Toybox Labs founders Jenn Chin and Ben Baltes from Oakland, California managed to raise more than $155,000 from their Indiegogo campaign and recently made a successful Shark Tank appearance on Sunday, March 10. The The Toybox Starter Bundle includes the printer, one reel of coconut (white) print food, one EZ-Peel Bed, a catalog of cool digital toys to make with the printer, and free Creator Space access, all for $299.
