If you can build Meccano or Lego, then a Buildabot 3d Printer kit is for you! 

Ideal for Home, School, or the Workplace; 3d Printing with a Buildabot 3d Printer is an ideal way to take a 3d design or idea from concept to reality.

All Buildabot 3d Printers feature:

  • Tough Aluminium easy-to-assemble chassis;
  • Safe, clean, non toxic 1.75mm PLA bioplastic build material;
  • 0.35mm nozzle for precise printing;
  • Machined T2.5 Pulleys and belts for accuracy;
  • A choice of Open Source software (Cura supplied);
  • Stainless steel hardware;
  • Excellent build and print quality


Who needs one?

3d Printers are being used by many different people - If you are a Designer, Artist, Engineer, Jewellery Maker, Musician, Cook (custom pastry cutters are big!) a Hobbyist or even a Biochemist, a Buildabot will change your world!


What can I make with it?

From simple repairs around the home, like coat hooks, cupboard latches or a replacement part for your vacuum cleaner;  to model toys and engineering prototypes, a Buildabot is a dream come true - it is your own personal desktop factory!


How do I use it?

  1. Either create or download a 3d file from one of the emerging online libraries (*.stl format) 
  2. Open the file in the (supplied) software - this will slice the 3d data into slices, and create toolpaths
  3. Choose a colour of Bioplastic filament, and start printing!


Your Buildabot 3d Printer will then follow the toolpaths you have just generated, drawing each one in plastic on the build table.

After drawing a complete layer, the build table lowers, and your Buildabot will start drawing the next layer.

Upon completion, you are left with a solid three dimensional object!


 Create your dreams!


Buildabots are Tough! All Buildabot 3d Printers feature a Tough Aluminium Chassis for strength, T2.5 Pulleys for accuracy, Stainless Hardware for longevity, and a Rugged Attitude.
