The MoonRay has many uses that will make life easier for industrial designers and engineers. Use it to print parts for a mechanical experiment or to prototype your next product. You can also print parts to make appearance models for presentations. Our resins accept primer, so you can paint all of your printed parts.

3D printing allows architects to create scale models of buildings without the constraints of traditional modeling material, like balsa wood or cardboard.
With the MoonRay, you can print unique garments and accessories that push the boundaries of fashion design. You can also use our castable resin to create molds for detailed parts to cast in metal.
For toy designers, 3D printing is a fantastic way to create toys of every shape and size. Whether you want to make detailed figurines or modular toys, the MoonRay can help you do it.
The MoonRay will make your other technical toys jealous. The small footprint fits easily into your workshop and the large build volume and fine resolution will let you create toys, gadgets and pieces for all types of projects.
We’re a new company with a product we believe in. In order to produce this printer at a high volume and deliver it at the price we’ve set, we need funds to ramp up production. Backing our Kickstarter helps us ensure everyone has access to the most advanced desktop 3D printing technology available.
We have some neat plans in the works for the MoonRay and are currently working on developing additional resins. Kickstarter funding will help keep the momentum going with our R&D team.
Early backers get can a MoonRay with early delivery at a special low price. The longer you wait to back the project, the longer you’ll have to wait to receive your MoonRay.
Once the Kickstarter campaign ends, you’ll be asked to choose the color of your MoonRay and what type of resin you’d like. We’ll also have you confirm your shipping address in preparation for delivery.
Each MoonRay comes fully assembled. In the box, you’ll find all the necessary cables, a care kit, and a detailed owner’s manual. You’ll also receive a copy of RayWare, our interactive support-generation software that makes printing simple.
The Interlocking Bracelet
Please note that most of our printer package rewards are for US-based backers only. If you’re located outside of the US, we have two tiers marked “International.”
We’ll give an extra liter of resin to all printer-level backers after we hit $250,000. Once we hit $500,000, all printers will come with free shipping within the US. All printer-level backers will get a year-long license for an easy-to-use CAD software after we hit $750,000. If we hit $1 million, all printers will come with an injection-molded top cover, which will be more durable, easier to clean and maintain, and even better looking.
Every MoonRay comes with a one-year warranty so you can relax and enjoy your new machine. During the last month of your warranty period, you’ll have the opportunity to extend your warranty. The MoonRay is built to last, but we don’t want you to worry about any unforeseen problems.
When you purchase a MoonRay, you’ll also have access to our support team. We believe in a high level of customer service and want to help you make the most of your new machine.
