The Dremel 3D40 Idea Builder continues the Dremel heritage of reliability and ease-of-use while bringing the convenience of Wi-Fi connectivity and mobile interaction to the world of 3D building. Ready-to-use right out of the box, the Idea Builder features built-in printable files so you can start building immediately, without the need of a computer. An advanced extruder design features an active filament monitoring system to ensure successful builds and the exclusive, Quick Level guided leveling system makes set-up a snap.

With a larger build capacity, you can create bigger projects inside the fully enclosed, illuminated workspace, and the cooling system prevents object warping while keeping your builds precise. Design and edit your models with the included Print Studio software by Autodesk, and control the building process using a full-color touch-screen. And when the build is done, retrieve your object using the convenient removable build platform. Large, clear, hinged door and lid permit unobstructed viewing of the build operation so you can always see inside without compromising the build environment. As always, you can trust Dremel for reliability and UL certification, assuring quality and peace of mind.
