The Vertex is an open source 3D Printer Kit that offers stand-alone printing on an easy to assemble platform. Keeping the cost of the 3D printer down without sacrificing accuracy or quality means more people can enjoy premium printer features at lower costs!
The ultra-reliable stainless steel Extruder feeds 1.75mm filament with ease. The Printer is expandable and supports a second extruder, allowing for prints with multiple filament types simultaneously.
The 4mm aluminum frame holds a 215mm x 240mm x 4mm removable glass plate and a Buildtak sheet. This setup allows for a level and solid print bed, combined with the fantastic Buildtak surface. Check out additional BuiltTak sheets or the BuiltTak FlexPlate system as well!
An on-board SD memory card reader means you can print without being tethered to a computer. Gone are the days of sacrificing your computer to managing your printer while a 24-hour part is printing. While the Velleman K8400 supports printing over USB 2.0, the included SD card slot allows the user to load print files directly into the machine.
