PrintrBot's first all-metal 3D Printer now available with a heated bed. The metal construction combined with a GT2 belt pulley system produces a 3D print that rivals those of other manufacturers which cost thousands more!
It's hard not to notice the new aesthetics of the Simple. The steel and aluminium body not only looks much sleeker than its plywood counterpart, but also provides strength and stability. This means a quieter and more precise printing process!
As the name clearly suggests the idea behind this PrintrBot model has always been simplicity. As there are fewer parts only 5 major pieces and fewer fasteners. To compliment this simplification, new build instructions are also easier to follow!
This is a major upgrade for the PrintrBot Simple. The printing platform can now be leveled semi-automatically with the use of software. No more manual calibration and build leveling with this one!
