Tiko is the 3D printer you’ve been waiting for. Simple, accessible, and dependable.

Tiko 3d has made good on their promise and has lancuhed klickaster compagne for their Delta-style 3D printer. Utilizing cost-saving techniques, the company claims that they will be able to honor a price tag of $179 while still remaining profitable. In fact, they are even providing special Early Bird prices for their initial backers which are under the expected MSRP of $179. Additionally, the company has revealed further details on the machine, its specs, and how they’ve managed to design such an affordable printer.

The Tiko 3D printer uses a special unibody frame. Instead of relying on several rails which enable movement of the extruder head, this machine builds the rails into the chassis, creating one solid piece which according to the company results in more reliable and accurate printing, while at the same time, reducing costs.

The vast majority of the parts making up the Tiko 3D printer are constructed and engineered from the ground up. From its innovative passive-cooled liquefier, which allows for affordable fanless venting of the extruder, to its internal filament tray and ability to use pretty much any non-proprietary filament, this printer is foreign to anything we have seen on the market in the past.
