Snapmaker Raises More than $1 Million on Kickstarter
For as many people who may have backed away from instead of backing new crowdfunding campaigns, there are still plenty of 3D printing enthusiasts willing to put their trust in a promising product.

This is very promising. I hope they can manage the manufacturing planning well. 42 hours to go on the Kickstarter!
