Type A Machines introduces big new 3D printer

Meet the new kid on the block. Hope you’re not intimidated by size…

Thinking big is kind of healthy, in the world of DIY creativity. And with this new offering from SF based Type A Machines, 3D printing just received a hefty size boost.

Keeping things on track for the budget conscious consumer, the Series 1 3D printer can be purchased for $1200 and will arrive fully assembled. That’s pretty good value for a device that is capable of speedy printing at high resolutions (0.3mm at high speed) and detail printing down to 50 microns. It’s also said to be super quiet, and the RepRap Arduino MEGA Pololu Shield (RAMPS) based system will happily respond to all your favourite software combinations to crunch your model data.

If you’re still not impressed, stop for a moment and think over what you can make with a 9 x 9 x 9 inch build volume. That’s 230 x 230 x 230mm! A whole 12.1 litres of 3D printed joy.

Perhaps it’s time to get a bigger desk…
