Craftbot Plus

£1140.00 Code P10031

LET YOUR CREATIVITY TAKE SHAPE! CraftBot 3D printer was designed and built from scratch in order to develop the ultimate tool for beginners and experienced users as well. It’s an easy to use, plug-and-play device – you can get from unpacking to printing your first 3D object ever in minutes. However, CraftBot Plus is far from being a “basic 3D printer” as it easily outperforms more expensive machines in many aspects! Wireless connectivity: Thanks to the new WiFi connection the 3D printing process can be controlled and manage wirelessly. With the help of the CraftApp application users can start and stop the printing process, control the heat settings, the fans and the light. Printing accuracy: Thanks to its 100 micron/layer resolution, CraftBot provides a very high printing quality. Printing size: Small from the outside, but huge inside – CraftBot has an impressive built volume of 250x200x200mm (approx. 10” x 8” x 8”) Color LCD touchscreen: CraftBot has an intuitive, well-organized navigation menu giving constant information on the printing process. Constant control: Users can alter printing parameters any time by the touchscreen – even during the printing process! Heatable & removable build platform: Heating prevents warping and sticking. Removable build platform is easier to clean. USB connection: Connect and control printing directly by connecting your CraftBot 3D printer to your PC via USB cable. Direct pendrive information load: Easiest way to upload your sliced 3D model to CraftBot’s memory. In the box you will find a pendrive with samples so you can immediately test your device. CraftWare: Our universal, advanced 3D printer software with a user-friendly graphical interface. Its advanced slicing algorithm ensures faster conversions and better results. Customer service: At CraftBot we love 3D printing. Our support staff has in-depth knowledge of the technology and always ready to help you.

Craftbot XL

£1950.00 Code P10028

CraftBot XL 3D desktop printer was designed and built as the ultimate tool for engineers and all makers who can benefit from an outstanding build volume. CraftBot XL 3D's designers enlarged the build plate, increased its heating capacity and improved bearings to achieve a more silent and more precise operation. CraftBot XL has a 300 x 200 x 440 mm printing size that enables you to build the same object using fewer parts, it results in fewer joins Printing accuracy - CraftBot XL is capable of 50 micron/layer resolution (with 0.25 mm nozzle) providing excellent print quality Nozzle kit - The package includes 0.25, 0.4, 0.6 and 0.8 mm MK8 copper nozzles and a wrench Improved bearings - Linear rails and upgraded bearings enable quieter operation and greater precision Color LCD touchscreen - CraftBot has an intuitive, well-organized navigation menu giving constant information on the printing process WIFI connectivity - With apps available for iOS and Android devices users can upload 3D projects to their CraftBot XL, control the printing settings Print pause & resume - You can change color or finish printing when filament ran out or after a blackout CraftWare - Universal 3D printer software with a user-friendly graphical interface. Its advanced slicing algorithm ensures faster conversions and better results Heatable platform - It enables CraftBot XL to print with all filaments that can only be used with the heatable platform Constant Control: Users can alter printing parameters any time by the touchscreen - even during the printing process! USB connection: Connect and control printing directly by connecting your CraftBot 3D printer to your PC via USB cable More Possibilities: Works with all HQ filaments measuring 1.75 mm in diameter Direct pendrive information load: Easiest way to upload your sliced 3D model to CraftBot's memory.Included in the box

Hephestos 2 with Free Heated Bed

£785.00 Code P10113

Announcing the BQ Prusa Hephestos 2 with a Free Heated bed upgrade kit * Building on the success of the Hephestos-1, this kit has been extensively re-engineered, providing the following additional features: - Faster build time - now only 1-2 hours - Self levelling bed - New double drive gear drive - Inductive sensor for greater precision - Improved electronics with new LCD display - Heated Bed Upgrade With the Hephestos 2, BQ have replaced the printed plastic parts with metallic ones. The use of aluminium and steel provides a professional finish and a more robust structure. These materials are combined with semi-transparent polymethacrylate parts which partially conceal the internal mechanism of the printer. It also has three support points and a retractable leg, which moves on the Z axis to adjust the height and stabilise the printer. Assembly is literally as easy as A B C - just unpack and assemble according to the layers.
