Plastic Scribbler is known for their affordable Asterid 1000S, base model 3D printer, which costs consumers just $499. The printer has received decent reviews, and for the price, it packs a nice punch.

The new printer has similarities to their older 1000S model, but with quite a few additional, useful features. These include, but are not limited to, a Smart Controller, a 12V 40W heater cartridge, and a heated build platform with a borosilicate glass build surface.  In addition, just like their older model, users can use any 1.75mm filament, as there is no need to purchase a proprietary filament from the company.

 

Here are some quick specifications for the Asterid 1100 Model:

  • Build volume of 8″ x 8″ x 8″
  • Heated Borosilicate glass build surface
  • 240W power supply
  • LCD Smart Controller with SD card reader for computer-free 3D printer control
  • Heater Cartridge hot end heating element
  • Uses 1.75mm plastic filament – Both ABS and PLA
  • 3 layer height settings: .3mm, .2mm, .1mm (other layer heights possible)
  • Fully assembled & tested
  • Z-axis ACME lead screws standard
  • X and Y-axis utilize GT2 timing belts for high efficiency and low backlash

The printer comes with a full 30 day money back guarantee, so if you are not happy with the printer for any reason, you can return it for a full refund. This device will cost you a bit more than the Asterid 1000S’s $499 price tag. The 1100 will begin shipping within four to six weeks at a retail price of $689. Discuss this printer at the Asterid 1100 forum thread.
