Kodama Obsidian – The $99 3D Printer?

Kodama has their second 3d printer, the Obsidian, out on Kickstarter and ready for backing. It’s a $99 3d printer that, quite honestly, is trending towards being a decent machine.

UPDATE June 29, 2017: Michael reached out and they have an official offering for the shipping questions on their Kickstarter page: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1403065126/obsidian-3d-printer-high-quality-sleek-and-afforda/posts/1924524

UPDATE June 26, 2017: I reached out to Michael from Kodama on the shipping charges. He said, “The Kickstarter shipping prices included VAT and import taxes for the customer. I cannot change anymore and I will do what I can. I think adding a free spool of Polyplus teal to all orders (retail $36 or $25 on the Kickstarter) so it in theory brings the shipping down to $25 and $45 for Europe including VAT. Every new backer gets 10% Kodama discount for life after the campaign”
