The new Stingray 3D Printer might be worth more investigation for those looking for a larger print area than most 3D printers offers as well as material such as PLA, HIPS, PVA, Laybrick, Laywood, T-Glase and Semi Solids to name a few.
The Stingray 3D Printer offers a large 400 x 400 x 400mm build area allowing users to create extra large objects as well as offering smaller 200 x 200 x 200 mm build areas if preferred. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the Stingray 3D Printer project and see it in action.
Other features of the Stingray include an all metal hotend making the systems capable of printing exotic filaments based on E3D v5 Design as well as glass or stainless steel using the paste extruder.
The Stingray 3D Printer project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise $50,000 in pledges to make the jump from concept to production. Its creators explain a little more :
“At Stingray CNC we believe in offering affordable, easy to use, professional grade 3D printers to ensure that everyone can fulfill their creative ideas. The Stingray line of 3d printers is offered in 8³ and 16³ inch build areas, and are meticulously and are crafted to suit the needs of any user. Each printer comes standard with an all metal hot end for printing in plastic and a self-leveling system. In addition to robust plastic printing capabilities optional modules are available to enable the machine to laser cut and engrave using a 2.8W Diode Laser and a “Paste” style Extruder and Stainless Steel bed to enable food extrusion and other semi solid materials.
We pride ourselves in the professional quality of the Stingray 3D printer line. All of the printer parts for the Stingrays are precisely laser cut, meaning we use very few 3D printed or injection mold parts for any of the Stingray printers. This allows us to produce parts for our 3D printers quickly, accurately and most importantly it helps to keep costs down allowing us to offer 3D printers without added expenses and the time and cost of developing molds. Every detail of the Stingray printers were carefully chosen, from our changeable bed, self-leveling system, and innovative attachment holder the Stingray is easy to own and love.”
