Explore the frontiers of 3D printing with a full-featured desktop 3D printer and experimental dual extrusion.
Designed for Daredevils and 3D printing experts.

Dual Extrusion: Be Ready For The Cutting-edge

Add a new level of creativity to your 3D designs with two interlaced colors that you can print through precisely aligned dual nozzles—without swapping or pausing.

Optimized For MakerBot ABS Filament

Make snaps, living hinges, threaded objects and more with a ductile, petroleum thermoplastic with elastic deformation properties. Control heating and cooling better with a superflat heated aluminum build plate and a clear, six-sided, draft-blocking enclosure that helps prevent uneven cooling, shrinking and cracking.

100-Micron Layer Resolution

Speed your way to demonstrations and presentations with settings that range from fast-draft to finer resolution. Get smooth-to-the-touch surfaces that don’t need sanding.
