Printrbot Assembled jr (v2) 3D Printer, ABS/PLA Filament, 1.75mm Ubis Hot End, 6″ x 6″ x6″ Build Volume

The Printrbot Jr. (v2) 3D printer comes fully assembled, has an open platform, a frame constructed of machined aluminum and laser-cut birch wood, and fabricates objects using ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) or PLA (polylactic acid) thermoplastic filament, with a vertical resolution of 100 microns (0.10 mm). The printer can build objects to maximum dimensions of 6 x 6 x 6 inches/150 x 150 x 150 mm (H x W x D). It comes with a direct drive extruder with a cooling fan, and an Ubis hot end that accepts 1.75 mm ABS or PLA filament. The printer is commanded through the provided micro USB cable using G-code numerical control instructions. An SD memory card slot can store G-Code instructions on a memory card (sold separately) for operation without a connection to a computer. It can be used with 3D printer management software packages (sold separately). The frame is made of laser-cut birch wood, and folds up for portability. The build platform heats to help provide thermal stability. Machined aluminum axis rods with linear bearings and injection molded gears help ensure precise movement. The size 17 stepper motors meet the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) standard ICS 16-2001. The printer comes with a sample of PLA filament.

*H is height, the vertical distance from the lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.

3D printers fabricate physical objects directly from computer-aided-design (CAD) data sources. Objects created by additive manufacturing are built by dispensing successive thin layers of molten material onto a moving platform base from a robotic extruder nozzle. The material is most commonly a thermoplastic or HDPE (high-density polyethylene) filament.

Printrbot manufactures desktop 3D printers and accessories. The company is headquartered in Lincoln, CA.

  1. A good printer to learn on The printer was chosen as a first 3-D printer as I learn by doing and wanted to know enough about the devices to make an intelligent choice when I eventually buy a heavy duty professional unit. I am glad that I chose the Assembled Printrbot instead of the kit as I would have wasted much time because the assembly instructions that I viewed seemed lacking. The printer works as advertised and is providing the hands-on experience I wanted. The design is novel but my unit does throw off bits of…
