Adafruit of this week announced the arrival of the new Monoprice Inventor II 3D printer which comes equipped with a touchscreen display for easy menu navigation and setting control as well as wireless connectivity allowing you to position the 3D printer the best possible place and send files and designs over the air.
Priced at $650 the Monoprice Inventor II 3D Printer offers reliable performance and is a “perfect entry-level 3D printer with small footprint” says Adafruit.
“The chassis housing is enclosed to keep your prints safe, and if you wanted to upgrade this printer for a heated bed, you’ll be able to keep the build volume warm. This printer has an automatic sensor door that will shut off any current printing job in progress if/when the door is opened. The printer keeps noise to a minimum as well as making it super easy to set up prints right out of the box.
This printer has an automatic sensor door that can pause any current print job in progress if/when the door is opened. The filament checker can put prints on hold when you run out material or it detects a jam. The bed leveling probe makes it easy to get that first layer on the first try!”
