If you were hoping to pick up Brook Drumm’s new Printrbot Simple at Maker Faire Bay Area this year, well…you’re too late. The Printrbot Simple beta edition sold out Saturday afternoon. Still, with alpha availability slated for June, you don’t have too long to wait.

Printrbot’s latest model is true to its┬áname. The kit can be assembled in under two hours with only a screwdriver and an Allen wrench. Simple and inexpensive, the Simple lowers the entry barrier for 3D printing further than ever before. Which has been PrintrBot’s goal all along.
