For those of you looking for a cheap starter machine look no further than these machines. Each perfect for Hobbyists, Small business owners testing the technology and schools looking to get the most machines within the constrains of an education department budget.
When a 3D printer joins our range you can rest assured, knowing it is of high quality, will do what we say it will, and will be backed by a Bilby Guarantee and Warranty.
Each 3D printer must meet a strict set of guidelines before we will sell it. These include:
Usability: Can the target user actually use this machine and related software easily? Some 3D printers and software can almost need a specialised degree to use it!
These do not meet our standards. Our 3D printers need to all be easily adopted within the Home, Classroom, University lab, or Workplace. We look at who the machine is
targeted at and assess the "expertise" and technical understanding required proportionally.
Longevity: This relates not only to the machine but also the manufacturer. Are we going to be able to support this machine into the future? Unfortunately ours
is a young industry and there are many fly-by-night and back yard operators. We want to support new comers, but we also need to know when something goes wrong the
parts and support will be there for our machines for the long term.
Reliability: In years gone by it was normal practice to have to repair and tinker with our 3D Printers before every print. This is, thankfully, not where the industry is today.
There are still very cheap machines on the market that do still fall into this category. Our 3D Printers are selected and tested for their reliability and durability.
We know you just want to turn them on and have them work time and time again!
Integrity and Legality : Not all manufactures play by the same rules. Makerbot knows this all too well with a number of clone/copy machines of their earlier models out there.
We only sell machines who own their technology, and do not rely on the theft of others intellectual property.
