Printrbot Metal PLUS review #3DThursday #3DPrinting

The Printrbot Metal Plus is the bigger sibling to the Simple Metal and should feel very familiar. Even with a bigger build area, the Plus still has a surprisingly small foot print. 

It’s simple minimalistic design that has a bigger build area, upgraded Linear rail System, and of course a sturdy power coated metal frame.

The linear rail and carts offer smooth stable movement of the print head and bed.
The machined aluminum bed is extremely flat, with a large build area that can produce prints up to 10 inch cubes.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
