DNP Mebotics hopes to kickstart Microfactory 3D printer  milling machine with crowdfunding

The gang of multi-function 3D printers — that is, ones that can also mill and etch your new creations — just grew by one. Mebotics Multifactory is a customizable device from a team of talented makers out of Boston’s Artisans’ Asylum (including Judah Sher, who created this amazing Distro cover for us) that also has an onboard computer loaded with an open source OS that connects to a phone or tablet via WiFi for remote operation. If it works as intended, you’ll be able to print out four-colored plastic masterpieces, as well as etch wooden and metal creations even if you’re in another continent. Unfortunately, it’s not something you can snag at Bed, Bath and Beyond, but the company is running a pre-sale on Kickstarter. Interested parties will need to pledge at least $3,495 to reserve a unit, but be warned — the project has set a lofty $1 million goal.
