MaKr3d is formed by Michael Mayer and Kim Kramer. (Our company name comes from a combination of our surnames.) Our goal is to support the incredibly active group of Makers building 3D printers and small CNC machines, by helping to improve the price and availability of the electronic components.
The idea is to focus on existing and proven electronic designs, but to eliminate some of the known small shortcomings and to incorporate good design ideas that came up after the underlying original design was finished. The changes are done carefully with full software compatibility in mind.
The designs are optimized for mass-production. In the end, the ready assembled units shouldn’t be much more expensive than the cost a Maker in Europe would have to pay for the parts of the underlying design alone when ordering in single quantities.
We’re kicking off sales with an Ulule campaign. Place your order now to take advantage of special early bird pricing!
