Printrbot Simple Makers Kit

Makers Kit Upgrade

Low Price with high quality

Brook Dunn (founder of Printrbot) wants to make "a 3D Printer for every household and school" attainable. To achieve this he has consistently released machines that compete with the big boys in reliability, functionality, and print quality, but at incredibly low prices.

When Brook Dunn, Printrbot founder was asked “Why are your machines so cheap”, he said “I still believe price is the first barrier to entry. Instead of getting the most money we can per printer, we wanted to build a long term, stable, scalable business. "

What makes the Printrbot Makers Kit so fantastic?

A great way to learn all about 3D Printing is to assemble a kit yourself. The drawback is that while we warrant that the kit is complete and can be built into a working printer, we cannot warrant that you have the skills a patience to do so, or the quality of the finished item.

The Printrbot Simple Maker’s Kit is an exercise in 3d printing minimalism. It includes only what is needed to get started in the world of 3D printing.

This 2014 model includes an Aluminium Extruder and Print Bed

This model uses braided line to drive the axis, a new model belts and pulleys (and a height sensor) is coming soon, an upgrade kit between the two models will be available for ~US$45

"The Printrbot Simple is a good device for people to start printing with. Building the printer is simple enough for almost anyone even if they’ve never built something this complex before. The build only requires a few Allen keys and a screwdriver. The build takes a few dedicated hours but I found that I learned a lot about how the 3D printer works and what it’d need to fix it something ever broke. I recommend this to anyone looking for a relatively inexpensive way to start 3D printing, or just looking to build something fun and useful." Nick Parks Make Magazine
