The Snapmaker team explains the community building that went into their record-breaking Kickstarter campaign for a three-in-one 3D printer, CNC, and laser cutter.
한이새 is a Korean user who likes world travelling. Like most of the makers, he enjoys 3D printing and sending prints to his friends as presents. After receiving his Snapmaker 3-in-1 3D printer, he found a new way to combine 3D printing with his hobby — printing customized picture frames.
It’s no secret that Snapmaker users are some of the most creative people on earth. That’s why it’s been such a joy for us to turn the spotlight on some of our users who have utilized their machines for a variety of good causes. Today, meet Aaron. He’s a tinkerer, and he’s been tinkering around with the 3D printable microscope for months. His goal is to create a portable microscope so that people can easily take it anywhere to observe the microworld with just one ordinary smartphone.

Doug while learning about his Snapmaker, printed up a batch of trinkets, Batman logos, Wonder Woman logos, painted them and sent them to his friend for handing out to the kids.

“Some of the things I have made were for fun and personal use, but a lot of things I have made are for my Etsy shop customers. Return on investment was very short. Anything the machine makes now is purely profit.”
“I want to get the idea across to people that you don’t need a huge printer to be able to do huge prints. With the use of free software and some glue, anyone is able to do big prints!”
