MAKE has some more details on the new Arduino 3D printer –
…the Italian 3D printing site 3discover.it reports that the printer is a collaboration between Arduino and Italian 3D printer maker Sharebot, showing one additional angle of the machine.
From the Sharebot site, it looks like the Arduino Materia 101 has many similar features to the Sharebot Kiwi 3D. If this is indeed a rebadged machine, expect something with a 140mm x 100mm x 100mm print capacity (5.5in x 3.9in x 3.9in), that prints with 1.75mm PLA filament. While those prints are not particularly large, the overall size of the Kiwi machine is also diminutive at 310mm x 350mm x 330mm (12.2in x 13.77in x 13in). It also has print-from-SD card capabilities. We’ll continue to check if these indeed share the same specs. The Kiwi 3D starts at 696€ (~$882).
