Fabbster 'Join the Revolution'
2 of 2
Fabbster at Euromold, Frankfurt
At face value the Fabbster looks like many of the FDM-based 3D printers on the market today. First shown to the public at the German manufacturing show Euromold in December 2011, the Fabbster differs in as much as the company behind it, Sintermask GmbH, expects them to be used for serious production.
At the Euromold event the company had a rack of Fabbsters stacked on top of each other forming a wall of little making machines. The Fabbster is on sale now through the companies global re-seller network.
