Make Almost Any Small 3D Plastic Object You Can Imagine!
"Watching this printer gently add layer upon layer of melted thermoplastic to form an object that was previously on your monitor is one of the most fascinating things you’ll ever see!"
Our easy-to-assemble 3D printer makes objects up to 7-7/8 inches high, 7-7/8 inches wide and 7-7/8 inches tall by laying down (printing) multiple micro-thin (less than .010 inch) layers of melted plastic filament. Designed with high-quality aluminum profiles, high-precision linear bearings and stepping motors, molded polymers, and electronic components, it's extremely fast, reliable and precise, even when printing at high speed. Its heated build platform improves printing quality by minimizing warp. It's not only easy to assemble, but also allows users to freely modify it for custom applications. You can print from web sites offering free object downloads (like thingiverse.com) or from your own designs.
