MOD-t (2nd Gen) to Deliver Improved User Experience and Functionality to Existing Award-Winning Design
PASADENA, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 18, 2017 — New Matter, Inc. a leading desktop 3D printing company, today announced the MOD-t (2nd Gen). New Matter revolutionized the 3D printing industry only three years ago by crowdfunding and successfully delivering the highest quality, most affordable desktop 3D printer ever seen. The MOD-t (2nd Gen) builds on that foundation by delivering the industry’s best user experience, latest technology, and exceptional print quality. No other desktop 3D printer in the world provides the MOD-t (2nd Gen)’s unique combination of ease of use, performance, and elegant design. The new MOD-t will begin shipping in Spring 2018 with preorders beginning today through Kickstarter.

“Today, we take another major step toward making the magic of 3D printing accessible and affordable for every home and classroom,” said Steve Schell, chief executive officer and cofounder, New Matter. “With the MOD-t (2nd Gen), we’re raising the bar for desktop 3D printers the world over – especially for the next generation of critical thinkers and problem solvers. We were humbled by the outpouring of support for our original record-breaking crowdfunding campaign and are excited to bring the new MOD-t to the community through this new campaign.”
With the introduction of the MOD-t, New Matter pioneered cloud-based software for desktop 3D printing, transforming the user experience. Now, New Matter continues to break down the barriers that kept 3D printing technology out of the hands of consumers. My New Matter, the printer’s new cloud-based software, gives consumers real-time wireless control of their printer along with the ability to create and share 3D designs with the online community. This new innovation makes the 3D printing experience easier than ever before.
“New Matter has always emphasized what others in the industry overlook – that ease of use is at the heart of practical value,” noted Ethan Imboden, vice president, head of Venture Design, at design and strategy firm frog. “They provide a seamless path from digital creation to tangible build, and are always looking for opportunities to improve this experience. frog and New Matter’s shared commitment to human centered design is at the heart of our partnership in making elegant, simple and affordable 3D printing solutions available to all.”
The MOD-t (2nd Gen) features include:
- Lightning Fast Processing Power – Vital printing tasks like motor control, trajectory planning, and data transfer are independently addressed, managed, and improved through all-new dual processing architecture.
- Excellence, Perfected – Dual, independently working fans optimize thermal performance, making 3D prints the highest quality possible and improving layer adhesion throughout. In addition, the new cooling system makes for a significant reduction in operating noise compared to the already remarkably quiet MOD-t.
- Ingeniously Simple – When introduced, the MOD-t boasted a revolutionary patented XY motion system that completely eliminated the need for manual calibration and bed leveling. In the MOD-t (2nd Gen), New Matter improves on this design with an attached build tray, making for higher resolution prints and a near perfect print success rate.
- Elegant Design – Designed by frog, the MOD-t is widely recognized for its simplistic beauty. The MOD-t (2nd Gen) carries forward the same aesthetic with the addition of a completely sealed printing environment, eliminating draft, containing heat, and reducing the overall printing noise.
- Designed For a Wireless Future – Improved networking technology inside the MOD-t (2nd Gen) provides a completely wireless experience from start to finish, and allows control from any device including Chromebooks, tablets, and smartphones.
“We have deployed the New Matter MOD-t across the entire Archdiocese of
Baltimore and our 3D printing initiative is now ubiquitous among all our
schools,” said James B. Sellinger, chancellor of education, Archdiocese
of Baltimore. “The printer’s reliability, robustness, ease of use as
well as the high level of support provided by New Matter have all been
nothing short of excellent. Our fleet of MOD-ts has proven to be quiet
enough to operate while classes are actually in session, especially when
compared to a variety of printers we’ve piloted. Can’t wait to see what
exciting things the MOD-t (2<
