Unlike kit-based printers, which require experience, and time to assemble, the Maker Select 3D Printer is easy to assemble and includes everything you need to begin printing right out of the box.
Print with any type of 3D filament
Print with any type of 3D filament including ABS-based, PLA-based, XT copolyester, PET, TPU, TPC, FPE, PVA, HIPS, Jelly, Foam, and Felty. With the ability to use any type of 3D filament and a price point lower than most DIY kits, this entry-level 3D printer is the easiest and least expensive way to join the 3D printing revolution!
Heated Build Plate
The heated build plate allows you to print slower cooling materials, such as ABS and modified ABS, as well as PLA and PLA blends.
Unlike DIY kits, this printer comes almost fully assembled and comes with everything you need, including sample PLA filament and a microSD card with sample 3D model files, ready to print!
With the ability to use both open-source and commercial software, such as Cura, Repetier, or Simplify 3D, the Maker Select 3D Printer is compatible with Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.
The large 8 x 8 inch build plate and generous 7 inch vertical spacing means that you can print larger, more complex models.
MicroSD Card Slot
Use a microSD card to store sliced GCode files, then plug the card into the microSD card slot to print without the need to connect to a Windows or Mac PC. The printer includes a 2GB microSD card with sample 3D models, which you can slice and store on the card for direct printing.
