One great things about 3D printers, is that they are designed in a way that large companies, small companies and even “do-it-yourselfers” can build their own machines. This has allowed for the emergence of companies which operate on very small profit margins, and extremely small amounts of funding during their start up.  One such company is BadDevices.

BadDevices, is an Italian company run by two men, Stefano Pavanello and Christian Filippi. They have  just informed 3DPrint.com that they have finished the construction of their first ten production models of their latest 3D printer, called the BadPrinter2. This 3D printer, is an FDM based machine that the men have been working on for quite some time now.  This printer will replace their older model 3D printer, the BadPrinter1, which they admit was a rather large, slow, noisy and cumbersome machine.

After thorough trial and error, Pavanello and Filippi have come up with a 3D printer that they are very proud of, in the BadPrinter2.

“We have completed a first production of ten machines,” Stefano Pavanello told 3DPrint.com. “Some will be delivered directly to customers nearby, but some are available for sale. We are planning to open the official webstore at baddevices.it soon, possibly for the first half of September. We are a very small company, so we think that the initial production will start slowly and speed up later, reducing the lead time for delivery. For the first delivery we estimate a lead time of 5/6 weeks.”badprinter2-4

The BadPrinter 2 looks to be a very solid 3D printer with quite the impressive specifications, as seen below:

  • Hotends: Dual independent all metal hotends
  • Heatbed: Aluminum Heated Bed
  • Print Bed: Easy to remove 4mm glass printing surface
  • Printing Volume: 226 x 230 x 210mm
  • Layer Height: Maximum of 50 micron / 200 micron standard
  • Positioning Precision: X/Y: 6.25 micron, Z: < 1 micron
  • Filament Diameter: 1.75 mm
  • Nozzle Diameter: 0.40 mm
  • Printing Speed: 10mm/s – 150mm/s
  • Free movement speed: 30mm/s – 230mm/s
  • Printer Dimensions: 420 x 460 x 500 mm
  • Printer Weight: 19 kg

The BadPrinter2 is also compatible with most of the available printing and slicing software that is on the market today which supports Marlin. It is also compatible with STL, AMF, OBJ, and DAE files, and allows for direct printing from an SD Card. The printer’s frame consists of welded carbon steel, which is powder coated black.

As for the price, Pavanello told us that it will cost 2050,00€ (approximately $2755 USD) VAT excluded for the double hotend configuration.
