Following on from yesterday’s announcement that the new Snapmaker 3D printer, laser engraver, and desktop CNC machine would be launching on Kickstarter today.
The campaign is now live with systems available for just $199 after the first 81 systems are sold at this price Snapmaker will be available for $249 with shipping expected to take place during September 2017.
Watch the video below to the learn more about this all-metal 3D printer which transforms your desktop top into a workshop. The development team behind Snapmaker explain more about its inspiration, design, and construction.
3D printers are amazing. Unfortunately, they used to be hulking, complicated, expensive, and with limited functions. We’ve been hearing about and experiencing the pain of setting up the difficult-to-use DIY 3D printer kit and being limited by the standard plug-and-play 3D printer. We are hoping to change that. So we came up with an idea: create an all-metal 3D printer, which is easy-to-use for beginners, expandable for makers, and truly affordable for everyone.
After many stages of analyzing the mechanical design and making prototypes, we’ve developed the Snapmaker 3D Printer to provide an enjoyable user experience. Moreover, It’s also a desktop makerspace, a combination of 3D printer, laser engraver, and CNC machine with interchangeable heads. We can’t wait to share it with the Kickstarter community and have you help nurture this unique machine with us.
Snapmaker is entirely made of metal, ensuring a high quality and reliable 3D printing experience. Along with a rock-solid aluminum alloys frame, all major components are CNC machined. It uses the precision acme lead screw as a drive mechanism to boost the precision and capacity. The all-metal build also translates into a premium industrial outlook.
