Dutch startup MyMatics has just launched a fund raising campaign on Kickstarter to bring its Mamba3D printer to market. The Mamba3D printer features an aluminum frame, all metal extruder, up to 50 microns layer resolution and a build volume of 200mm x 200mm x 200mm (7.87x7.87x7.87 inch). The electronics is a single circuit board with integrated stepper drives, which is prepared for any future upgrades like adding a display, SD-card capability and a heated bed to your printer.

MyMatics announced in March that it's working on Mamba3D to provide users with a 3D printer that is easy to use and affordable. "After we announced in the media our plan to bring our Mamba3D printer to the market, we received very positive feedback", said Michiel Bieshaar, founder of MyMatics.

Custom extruder drive

The Kickstarter campaign runs for one month only and backers have the opportunity to receive a 3D-printer from the first production batch in return for their support.

MyMatics offers backers various rewards and a limited special early bird deal. The earliest backer can get the Mamba3D printer DIY-kit for €625, which includes:

  • Aluminum frame and plates
  • Electronics with preloaded firmware

  • Mamba3D extruder drive
  • Hot-end
  • All other hardware needed to build your own printer
  • Detailed build manual
  • Samplepack of premium Colorfabb PLA to get you started


By running a campaign on Kickstarter MyMatics wants to build a community of early backers who are willing to share their first experiences. Michiel says: "Feedback on how people are using our product is extremely important to us. This will be the basis for our next developments". Production is expected to start immediately after the campaign and first products should be shipped in August.

Jesus christ.... it seems the people who comment on these articles are very bitter and suffer from depression.... always negative comments.....always talking how bad this printer is, how bad that printer is... No single printer is perfect....deal with it....any person in the field and with some brain will tell you, if you want the complete package... you won't get it at a cheap price... you want heated bed, LCD panel, topnotch controllerboard, 1/32 microsteps, rigid frame, easy calibration, 50micron print quality, reliable extruder, dual extruder, fast printing... and all of this, you want for 400,- usd... and if possible... free shipping and 1kg filament included and maybe an weekend stay in paris with breakfast in bed. bunch of cheapskates, please stick to the reprap with crooked threaded rods. The reprap project dates back to 2005....people want more options... but don't want to pay more for it. Get real

It seems that this printer no longer features a heatbed which is totally a no-go.

MTW FuseMatic is shipping now for $850 and looks like a better machine than the one presented. The mechanics are similar, Fusematic has a metal electronics enclosure too. I personally wouldn't use the motor they put on the extruder. You have to dial down the retract acceleration a lot to make the motor last.
