3D PRINTER

2 Makerbot Mini


3D PRINTER

We can print 5x5x5 at a maximum resolution of 20 microns.  It’s equipped with a heated glass bed for better adhesion and smoother prints; has an improved Z-stage for stability; new electronics for reliable temperature control; and a new fancap for safety. Its biggest strength is its upgradeability through modding.
