The printer was designed to greatly simplify the assembly process and 3d printing experience for new enthusiasts and experienced users. The main features are:
- Do-it-yourself KIT with all the parts and tools included. - Easy assembly with very simple visual instructions. - Optimized print volume so it is portable and still able to print the majority of our needs. - Good print quality: mechanical sturdiness and NEMA17 motors so high print speeds can be achieved. - No heated platform: prints only PLA based filaments. - Removable acryllic platform that has good results sticking PLA filaments.
