Arcadian 3D has unveiled a new large format 3D printer they have created in the form of the ARC-One which has been designed to provide a next-generation 3D printer that is both affordable and easy to use for consumers.
The large format 3D printer is priced at $1399 and can be fitted with a general printing head allowing you to use multiple materials when creating your 3D printed objects. Whilst using dual materials one material can be used for support and later dissolved to provide a more professional finish for more complicated 3D printer designs.
Watch the video below to learn more about the ARC-One 3D printer that provides a build volume of 400 x 400 x 400 size. Offering a large area when compared to its competitors such as the Makerbot Z18, Replicator and M3D Micro to name a few.
The developers of the ARC-One large format 3D printer explain more about their concept and its construction.
To Meet the Needs of The Future Makers and Creators, We Designed and Engineered the Perfect 3D Printing Tool: The ARC-one, Now We Need Your Help to Bring It to Life!
It has always been our goal to create a printer utilizing the newest technologies at a price that is actually affordable. 3D printers with high-grade specs often cost upwards of $5k-$10k, and are out of the price-range for the majority of consumers. This limits creatives, artists, inventors, students, and designers to inferior-quality printers. Our plan to undercut these prices, while making a better machine than the rest, was a driving motivator in our quest to make the ARC-one.
We’ve learned a great deal from the mistakes of others and have improved upon design flaws that exist in other machines. For example, our bed is rigid, quality metal machined parts throughout, our nozzles are easy flowing and allow for faster printing speeds, and our electronics are cutting edge, and the innovative built-in application handles all the hard work.
Printing is as easy as obtaining a 3D model either via USB drive or SD-card or you can download directly on the printer’s intuitive 5-inch display… and telling it to print!
