Printrbot Assembled Metal Simple 3D Printer, Black, PLA Filament, 1.75mm Ubis Hot End, 6″ x 6″ x 6″ Build Volume

The Printrbot Simple 2014 fully assembled 3D printer has an open platform with an aluminum print bed and a frame constructed of black powder-coated steel and aluminum for fabricating objects to maximum dimensions of 6 x 6 x 6 inches/150 x 150 x 150 mm (H x W x D) using PLA (polylactic acid) thermoplastic filament. The printer has a vertical resolution of 100 microns (0.10 mm) and includes a direct drive 6061 aluminum extruder with a shrouded cooling fan, and an Ubis hot end that accepts 1.75 mm PLA filament. The unheated 6061 aluminum print bed has a matte finish, has a semi-auto leveling features, and provides a level build surface that will not warp. 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 powder-coated steel and aluminum. 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 spool of PLA filament.

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. An amazing product. Great value all around. Just got my Simple Metal Printer up and running and I have to say WOW. There is some serious quality in this machine. It comes with all you need to get up and running quickly, even some filament to get started. This bot is great for beginners and a high quality piece of kit for more experienced users.I had a question about the kits vs the assembled printer and was able to open a support ticket on their website and got things resolved quickly. At times they get back logged with…

  2. I just got this thing an hour ago This is my first 3D printer. I did my first test print of the cube as suggested in the instructions and its printing the fan shroud now. What an awesome little printer! I wasn’t able to get Repetier to control the printer (it did connect) so I am using Pronterface to print which is working fine. I have read that Cura works well too so I will try that too. Keep in mind this machine is for people who like to tinker with things. The instructions on their website are for the old version as…
