Tiko is an affordable unibody direct-drive 3D printer for $179 USD

3D printing has gained quite a bit of attention over the last couple of years, but sadly most offerings are still quite pricey for those just wanting to get their feet wet. Tiko 3D aims to change that with their affordable 3D printer offering on Kickstarter.

While we have seen lower-priced 3D printers on Kickstarter before, Tiko is prepared to offer something a little bit different with their 3D printer. Tiko's 3D printer has a unique design in that it uses a unibody frame with a direct-drive printer head module. That means unlike traditional 3D with rails, Tiko will offer better stability resulting in less calibration. This will also promote less misalignments during the printing process resulting in more accurate prints.

Naturally, this might not rival a MakerBot 3D printer that you can purchase at your local Home Depot, but it should be a great investment for someone looking to dive into 3D printing for the first time. The Tiko 3D printer is available now via Kickstarter for $179 USD; there are 28 days remaining to back the project.
