CoreXY The CraftBot XL uses the so-called CoreXY solution for belt guidance. Due to the intelligent guidance of the toothed belts and control of the motors for the X and Y axis, no motor has to be carried on the Y-slide. This technique enables fast, low-vibration printing, which greatly benefits the print image. Vibration marks after a sharp change of direction are thus passé.
Z axis the print bed is moved on a robust Z axis with a spindle and two guide rails. It does not vibrate and allows high quality prints with different layer heights 0.2 millimeters is the standard resolution, 0.1mm is considered fine. Even smaller layer heights are possible, although not necessarily useful ...
Active cooling The cooling of the deposited filament takes place via two small fans, which are mounted on both sides of the extruder. Through this diffuse air flow, the cooling reaches the print from all sides. Enables the printing of strong overhangs and the bridging of large distances, without supporting structure.
Heated print bed A heated and easily removable print bed is of course standard equipment of this 3d printer. This allows distortion-free printing of objects with a large footprint. The print bed is delivered with a Kapton coating. But it can also be covered with crepe or a permanent printing bed. The printing bed must be leveled once after delivery. This setting remains reliable and must be readjusted even after transport.
High-quality extruder CraftUnique supplies this 3d printer with a high-quality multi-material extruder. It can handle many plastics including PLA, WillowFlex, ABS and more. to a maximum temperature of 260 ° C. By default, a 0.4mm pressure nozzle is installed in the 3d printer. This is a good compromise between speed and quality. Of course, the nozzle can be replaced with other diameters.
Touchscreen This 3d printer is completely operated via a touchscreen. The menu is clear and almost self-explanatory. If you connect the 3d printer to your computer via USB cable, you can receive and import firmware updates. With the latest update, you can change the manual settings during printing, such as temperature or printing speed, etc.
Processing: lots of steel. The case, this 3d printer, is made of sheet metal. It is stiff and solid and has no difficulty with the vibrations caused by fast short movements of the printhead. The side walls are closed by Plexiglas.
The feed on the extruder, the feed motor and the counter-pressure wheel (idler) of this 3d printer are open and made entirely of metal. Due to the open design maintenance is child's play when e.g. has caught a Filamentresistent at the feed. And if you ever have to pick up the Allen key, that's not a problem as the parts of this 3d printer are made of steel and can withstand dismantling without crumbling. Many extruders, other 3d printers, with plastic attachments have the problem that they break down over time.
The print data can be transferred via USB stick or by cable to the 3d printer. You do not need to use sensitive SD cards anymore.
At 3dk.berlin, we have used and tested many different 3d printers with different designs from various manufacturers over the years. Gradually, we discovered their weaknesses and design flaws and followed their aging process. In the meantime, over 20 FDM 3d printers have passed through our hands. We had long had the plan to include a 3d printer in our portfolio, which we can recommend to our customers. Well, there he is now: the CraftBot XL! Nowhere else can you get more 3d printers for a good 2200 euros. Top processed, excellent print, easy to use, flexible and high quality. Our Buy recommendation: CraftBot XL THE 3d printer
