B3 Innovations quickly met and exceeded its initial fundraising goal $17,500 after only 48 hours for Pico, the company's all-metal hot-end for RepRap 3D printers.

B3 co-founder Michael Koury said, "We are humbled and ecstatic at the support and response for Pico in such a short timeframe."

The Pico fundraising campaign on Kickstarter still has 23 days to raise the bar, so B3 is offering a $40,000 stretch goal to develop a Pico that prints up to 500° Celsius (932° Fahrenheit), the first of its kind for the 3D printing market. This is important for some polycarbonates on the market in addition to printing materials that are on the horizon. "Filament greatly affects the finish of a 3D print", said William Moujaes, B3 Innovation's co-founder.

Backers are offered an option to have the 500° Celsius thermistor installed on their PIco. This thermistor (temperature sensor) which enables Pico to print up to 500° Celsius (932°Fahrenheit) is a plug and play solution with a downloadable temperature table to update your firmware for RepRap printers.

B3 also paired Columbus based, IC3D, supplier of 3D printer filament to offer Polycarbonate filament 'LEXAN'. The LEXAN Polycarbonate filament is available for $35 / 2lb Spool in five different colors. "You won't find LEXAN polycarbonate at this price anywhere — especially with color." said Moujaes.
