COMING SOON! Printrbot Simple Kit – 2014. These will be in stock in a week or less, sign up now – they’re going to move FAST! The Printrbot Simple is an exercise in 3D printing minimalism. It includes only what is needed to get started in the world of 3D printing. After building this kit you’ll have a fully-functioning 3D printer that weighs only 5 lbs and fits nicely on your desk
Please note! the Printrbot is a kit and not for beginners! You’ll get all the parts to assemble your own 3D printer but it does require some technical expertise, time and effort to assemble.
Features of the Printrbot Simple Kit:
The 2014 model comes standard with Aluminum Extruder and Aluminum print bed
0.1mm resolution (and beyond)
100mm cube of printing volume (~4″ cube)
PLA only (no heat bed)
Ubis 1.75mm Hotend
200lb. test fishing line – the X & Y “belts”
12v 6A laptop style power supply
Outer dimensions: 7″ x 8″ x 9″
~5.25lb total weight
Sample of 1.75mm PLA filament
Fan and end stops included
Laser cut wood parts are standard 1/4″ (6mm) thick

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

Love seeing the new 3D printers at Adafruit! First the TAZ, which is awesome both because it is a great machine and completely OSHW, and now the Simple, at a much more accessible price point and CC-BY-NC-SA, which is maybe not ideal but more open than closed 😉
