The G3D1 Desktop 3D Printer is built for consistent, reliable operation. Constructed using heavy duty industrial automation components, it can operate for extended periods of time reliably, and with a minimum of maintenance. For production and work group environments, reliability is vital to ensuring throughput and a return on your investment. Many similarly priced 3D printers require near constant tweaking and adjustment. The G3D1 has a full aluminum frame that enhances the rigidity of the machine in comparison to other open-sourced 3D printers that use plastic, wood, or 3D printed parts in their construction. This enhanced rigidity translates into better quality prints, more consistent operation, and superior reliability; letting you 3D print more, and adjust less.
