Printrbot Simple XL Upgrade Kit

The Printrbot Simple XL upgrade kit extends the build volume of a Printrbot Simple 3D printer (sold separately) to maximum dimensions of 7.28 x 3.9 x 6.5 inches/185 x 100 x165 mm (H x W x D). The kit, which requires assembly, includes laser-cut birch wood parts, metal rods, and a Y-motor extension to assemble a tower that extends build dimensions and helps provide additional rigidity. The tower includes removable wide-stance feet and a handle cutout for portability. Parts are also included to assemble a small filament spool and spool coaster to hold filament (sold separately).

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. I would recommend this kit to anyone I would recommend this kit to anyone who is buying Printrbot SImple. Kit increases print volume from 4″x4″x”4″ inches to 7.5X4″X6.5″. This allows you to print much larger and more complicated objects. After installing this kit I was able to print a number of the objects that I haven’t been able to print before. I think Printrbot should offer a different kit – Printrbot Simple XL kit, with the kit in the set for about $350. Now I am able to print a number of complex…
