The PrintrBot Simple Black is PrintrBot's first all-metal 3D Printer. The all 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!
The mechanics of the new Simple are also getting an upgrade with the introduction of the GT2 belt pulley system. Aside from featuring aluminium construction, this system will prevent belt slipping and backlash from reverse motion, which will result in cleaner prints.
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!
The steel and aluminium Printrbot Simple comes with an extended build volume. Up about 5cm from the original, this new model has the capacity to print up to 3375cm²!!
