All Buildabot 3d Printers feature:
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?
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.
