Here it is! We’ve been testing it for a while now and are really impressed with how easy it is to operate. Wifi just works on the first go through the new Cura app with live camera view. Swappable print cores make it super simple to use different materials.
Check this weeks 3D Thursday for a full show about our testing!
The whole system can download and update it’s self right through the on board menu!
Dual Extrusion works by lifting nozzles as the other nozzle prints, preventing oozing. NFC can detect and adjust material settings while still allowing you to override settings.
We of course tested 1.75mm filament and it works great, we even mixed 2.85mm and 1.75mm together and it printed excellent!
Overall we are very impressed and can’t wait to stock it!
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!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
