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 10 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.
As of October 17th, 2014 we are shipping the new version of the PrintrBot Simple Kit with the following features & upgrades:
Auto-Leveling Z-Probe – works with software to calibrate Z axis height
Aluminum Extruder (direct drive) – 1.75mm Ubis Hot End with 0.4mm nozzle
GT2 aluminum 20 tooth dual flange belts
GT2 belts on X and Y axis
Printerbot Rev F Printerboard with micro-USB connection (cable included) and micro SD card slot for untethered printing
Aluminum Z Axis coupler
Auto Level sensor
Cleaner design with electronics underneath the printer
Clearly labeled laser cut parts for easier assembly
New from Printrbot, the Metal Simple is a brand new rock solid, all metal, fully-assembled Printrbot Simple! As opposed to the Printrbot Simple Kit, all of the laser cut wood parts have been replaced by rock solid metal and assembled. In fact, the total number of parts have been reduced to just a fraction of the wooden model. The all metal construction combined with a GT2 belt pulley system produces a 3D print that rivals those of other manufacturers which cost thousands more!

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
