ENGAGE WITH YOUR STUDENTS AND COMMUNITY

We at MatterHackers support our educators, libraries, and makerspaces! With a 3D printer, not only will you have a new way to teach -- you’ll also have a new engaging way for your students to learn. Experience is one of the best routes to comprehending concepts and 3D printing allows for that through interactive creation. Teaching our next generation workforce to design and fabricate in 3D is the key to high-paying, creative jobs in every industry. We handled the complicated parts of set up and put together a bundle so you and your students can do more with time and creativity. MatterHackers provides unbiased guidance to get started (or stay current) with digital fabrication, including affordable desktop 3D printers, CNC mills, vacuum formers, laser cutters and engravers, and more. We offer free lifetime phone and email support for all 70+ machines and 1000+ materials we sell, free US shipping, discounts for educators and libraries, video tutorials, and classroom case studies.

WHAT'S INCLUDED IN THE BUNDLE

  • Craftbot Plus
  • 10 PRO Series PLA
  • 3D Printed Science Projects Book
  • 7-Day Print Lab Trial

Start your first print in minutes

The CraftBot PLUS 3D printer lets you start printing in minutes with it's out-of-the-box, easy-to-use, plug-and-play design. The CraftBot PLUS offers an impressive build volume of 250mm x 200mm x 200mm, letting you create large-scale projects in a single print rather than having to split up your 3D model.

The built-in LCD touch-screen provides a status of current prints as well as machine control without the need for a connected computer. The CraftBot PLUS is also compatible with MatterControl for the best possible 3D printing experience when connected to your computer over USB.

Heated, removable build plate

The build platform comes standard with applied kapton tape for strong bed adhesion and also excellent heat distribution across the build plate. Heat and adhesion pair beautifully for use with more difficult filament like ABS and Nylon, which we have successfully printed without a full enclosure here at MatterHackers. Use the complete build area with confidence not only with even heating but also with complete accessibility thanks to the easily removable build platform. When a print is completed, the plate quickly comes out for easy part removal or cleaning and is equally simple to reinstall for your next print job.

Blends right into your workshop

The CraftBot PLUS is equipped with a direct-drive extruder and mount-anywhere spool holder for maximum compatibility with your workspace. The spool holder attached on one of the screws on top of the machine, allows you to mount your spool on the left, right, front, or back of the printer. Feeding into the extruder is easy because it moves around with the hotend, so even if you want the filament mounted on a shelf above the printer, it will feed just fine! Another awesome benefit of the direct drive nature of the machine is the ease of calibration when it comes to retraction. Direct drive systems are very responsive to retraction settings and allow you to easily avoid stringy or under-extruded prints.

Solid construction and reliable leveling

The CraftBot PLUS utilizes manual leveling of the build plate using three set screws; simply monitor your first layer and adjust as necessary to ensure perfect bed adhesion. This simple and solid leveling solution persists through repeated removal and replacement of the build plate as well as many, many prints. The CraftBot PLUS is built with a solid, sheet metal frame and features a Core XY motion design for a shared load between the two motors for more economical operation and a repeatable and reliable 3D printing experience.
