Following a few months of brisk development and heavy testing, we are pleased to announce the launch of our eMAKER Huxley 3D printer
The beta program will be limited to 100 machines, and in order to offer a very competitive price we are running a crowd funding campaign on indiegogo. For $475 (~£295) we are offering a full kit of parts, including everything required to assemble and commission the eMAKER Huxley 3D printer, even down to the power supply and software. All kits will be backed by full instructions, online support and a 12month warranty. So we are not only providing a 3D printer, but a complete 3D printing solution.
THE eMAKER HUXLEY
The eMAKER Huxley 3D printer was developed to offer the user a portable yet capable machine, with a large build volume (140x140x110mm) to footprint (260x280x280mm) ratio. Design features were incorporated from proven developments within the RepRap community, such as the Prusa Mendel 3D printer’s Z axis arrangement, as well as many innovative developments.
The design incorporates a heated build surface as standard, enabling the machine to print in a range of thermoplastic materials including ABS, as well as a custom designed robust all metal extruder hot end.
A brief specification of the machine is as follows:
All RP part design files and instructions will be published in the near future.
Many of you will already own a larger sized RepRap 3D printer, such as the Mendel and Prusa Mendel designs, but you may be interested in owning a second smaller machine, for example for taking along to hackerspace group meetups. We will therefore also be offering full kits minus the plastic printed parts once the beta program is underway.
