manufacturer part number: K8200
Accepts 3mm filament only.
The Velleman K8200 3D Printer Kit constructs a high-quality 3D printer that rivals preassembled units that cost hundreds of dollars more. This well designed printer is very rigid and uses high quality aluminum extrusions, and precision mechanical and electronic components in it's construction. Assembly time is just a few hours and the illustrated assembly manual eliminates the guess work involved in putting together a precision machine.
The build area is 20cm x 20cm x 20cm. A heated print bed helps ensure quality, warp free prints from 3mm PLA or ABS.
The controller is an Arduino derivative and is based on an updated version of the popular Sanguinololu 3D Printer Controller. It supports all common firmwares built for the Sanguinololu. The stepper motor drivers are industry standard A4988 modules and include heatsinks for cool and reliable operation. The stepper drivers are socketed for easy replacement should any "accidents" happen (replacements are available from Vetco).
