The Printrbot Simple 2014 3D printer kit has an open platform with an aluminum print bed and a frame constructed of machined aluminum and laser-cut birch wood for fabricating objects to maximum dimensions of 4 x 4 x 4 inches/100 x 100 x 100 mm (H x W x D) using PLA (polylactic acid) thermoplastic filament. The printer, which requires assembly, has a vertical resolution of 100 microns (0.10 mm) and includes a direct drive 6061 aluminum extruder with a shrouded cooling fan and an Ubis hot end that accepts 1.75 mm PLA filament. The unheated 6061 aluminum print bed has a matte finish and provides a level build surface that will not warp. The printer is commanded through the provided micro USB cable using G-code numerical control instructions. An SD memory card slot can store G-code instructions on a memory card (sold separately) for operation without a connection to a computer. It can be used with 3D printer management software packages (sold separately). The frame is made of laser-cut birch wood. Machined aluminum axis rods with linear bearings and injection molded gears help ensure precise movement. The size 17 stepper motors meet the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) standard ICS 16-2001. The printer comes with a sample spool of PLA filament.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Does the XL Upgrade kit work with this?

    Yes, the parts that the XL kit includes will still work with the 2014 model. You'll probably want to put down for the XL aluminum bed, as well, since this guy comes with a metal bed (nicer) and you'll be downgrading to the wood bed in the base XL kit.

  • Does this kit include everything you need to hit the ground running other then tools. Like a controler, motors, needed electronics software?

    Everything but the software. However the on line instructions provide links to all the needed software. And its all freeware.
