This printer is perfect for anyone wanting to delve into the exciting world of 3D printing. Join the Printrbot community today and begin printing anything you can imagine. Printrbot's Simple Kit has been upgraded in a major way - from weak wood to rock solid and sleek metal, this printer is great for beginners who want to learn the process of 3D printing.
The Simple Metal Assembled printer is armed with Automatic Calibration, which means that a lot of the work is done for you. This also ensures accurate, level, and consistant prints, so you'll be an expert right off the bat!
Printrbot's Simple Metal printer has your back with the GT2 Belt and Pulley system - it is designed for linear motion. It uses a rounded tooth profile that fits smoothly and accurately in the pulley groove, so when you reverse the pulley direction, there is no room for the belt to move in the groove. This makes the continuous motion of the printer work more efficiently and comfortably while producing your spot-on prints.
The Printrbot can be heavily modified, giving it limitless potential. In fact, the money you'll save buying this printer over more expensive brands, will allow for a multitude of upgrades, making it even more powerful and effective. "Simply" put (ahem), the print quality can be comparable to the output of 3d printers that cost thousands more.
Check out the Yoda prints below which were made using the Printrbot simple metal. The print on the right was created using an upgraded, smaller nozzle, which gave it a smaller layer height.
