Electronics retailer Monoprice has announced that it will start selling its dual-color extrusion 3D printer at the end of the month. The unit, which was first shown at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show, is the first 3D printer to be released from the company. The offering marks yet another expansion by Monoprice into other areas of consumer electronics. The company has gone well beyond its early offering of cables, and since branched out into game electronics and music instruments.

Features for the Duel Extrusion ABS/PLA/PVA 3D Printer includes the ability to use standard 1kg, 1.75mm filaments spools to print layers from 0.1 to about .05mm. The printer can print up to 24 cubic centimeters per hour, with the extruder reaching temperatures of 482 degrees Fahrenheit. The printing bed will heat up to 248 degrees Fahrenheit.

"Monoprice is excited to offer high-quality 3D printing with dual-color capability, along with a number of included extras and free shipping, at under $1,200-- a price level that is unheard of in the industry," said Monoprice Vice President of Marketing Luke Grant. "We are looking to have a major impact in the fast-growing field of 3D printing, and make this valuable technology more accessible to a wide range of consumers, businesses, schools, and researchers."

By comparison, offerings from Makerbot begin at upwards of $2,500, while a five-color 3D printer from Bot Object wills cost a consumer $3,200.
