DotRoot Technology, a Brunei-based 3D printer distributor, introduced Moment 3D printer at the 15th Annual Brunei Consumer Fair, which reportedly attracted a considerable crowd of technology fans.

While there are a lot of 3D printers on the market nowadays with a variety of abilities and qualities, it's always the ones who find a proper balance between price, print-quality and accessibility that seem to do best in terms of consumption. While only launched a month ago on a number of East Asian markets, the South Korean-made Moment 3D printer is already getting a lot of attention.

Just recently, it garnered critical acclaim upon entering the Brunei technology market. For those of you who aren't familiar with the Consumer Fair of Brunei, it's the leading trade and consumer event in Asia, and is held twice a year in Darussalam, Brunei. This massive event typically features approximately 300 booths and usually attracts about 150,000 people, making it a perfect place to show off your latest products.

The Brunei Minister of Industry and Primary Resources, YB Pehin Orang Kaya Seri Utama Dato Seri Setia Hj Yahya Begawan Mudim Dato Paduka Hj Bakar (his full name), was reportedly very impressed by the Moment 3D printer and the quality of its printed objects, and stated that he believed that 3D printing will play a very important role in the future of the country's economy. The minister can be seen with the Moment team below.

In a nutshell, the 'Moment' 3D printer is a FDM gantry-style focused on plug-and-play operation. It's a machine with an decent interior build area of 145mm x 150mm x 165mm, featuring a solid metal extruder and a hot end, which makes it an excellent machine for 3D printing in PLA, ABS and other common FDM filaments. It supports either Windows or Mac OS systems through USB and SD connections, and can print with an impressive maximum resolution of 50 microns. It also features the software package of Simplify 3D, and all that for the decent price of somewhere below $1800.

The Moment 3D Printer is the first to be marketed in the middle class society of Brunei, where it's potential market is significant. Their chances are further strengthened by their educational perspectives, which could see it being widely adopted in a country that seeks to develop a high-tech economy.

The 3D printer's Brunei distributors DotRoot Technology were also optimistic about its chances. As the company's Chief Operating Officer Khairul Anwar Sabir said: 'What makes Moment really unique is that it provides the full package at a really affordable price. The software is easy to use, and the printer itself is easy to manage. We have been trying out some stuff here, and no matter how complex the shape something is, the product always end up coming out how we expect it to be.'
