Leapfrog Launches the Creatr XL 3D Printer: Quality Printer with Huge Build Size

Share this Article

leapfroglogoLeapfrog has just announced the release of a new 3D printer. It is the Creatr XL, which is based off of their popular Creatr model, but it has a much larger build height. The Creatr 3D printer which has a maximum build size of 230x270x200 mm is dwarfed by the new Creatr XL which has a huge max build size of 230x270x600 mm, and a max print volume of 37.2 liters.

Leapfrog is now selling the Creatr XL for €3,999, which is approximately $5500.

The printer’s build volume is comparable to the recently announced MakerBot Replicator Z18 printer which has a maximum build size of 305x305x457mm, but about costs $1,000 more than the CreatrXL.

“Now I must decide if I want to go with the Replicator Z18 or the Creatr XL 3D Printer,” said Jacob Goldberg, an owner of 2 Replicator 2 printers. “I was sure that I would be getting the Replicator Z18, but the height possibilities on the Creatr XL are quite impressive.”

People are wondering if this release is in response to the Replicator Z18 announcement which was made by MakerBot at CES a little over a month ago. More than likely it is not, but it sure will give consumer a second option when trying to purchase a large build 3D printer.

Here are the specs of this newly released printer:
