From beginner to expert, let your creativity take shape with the CraftBot PLUS 3D printer. This easy to use, reliable printer gets you from unpacking to printing in just minutes. CraftBot is known for sturdy, excellent designs and the CraftBot Plus is a powerful, tried and true expression of that ideal.
Known throughout the prototyping, hobbyist and educational fields for its excellent build-volume-to-workspace-footprint ratio, it's ability to print even complex and difficult prints and its reliability and repeatability, the CraftBot Plus is the answer to the question "Which 3D Printer is right for me?"
This is the Grey unit. Perfect for fitting right into machine shops and print farms.
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.
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.
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.
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.
