While we have been introducing you all to quite a few new 3D printer manufacturers over the last few weeks, some of the established players are now updating their 3D printer lineups, in hopes to continue attracting the attention of 3D printing enthusiasts.
Today The Netherlands based company Leapfrog announced an update to their original Creatr 3D printer. Called the Creatr ’14, the new machine features several important upgrades over its predecessor. For a company who prides itself on the inroads it’s made within the education space, one of the more important features for its 3D printers is a simple user interface, on which the Creatr ’14 certainly improves.
The Creatr ’14 features improved standard settings for the Simplify3d software, which enables a streamlined print process. The new machine also prints significantly faster than its predecessor, with a standard setting of 100mm/sec as opposed to 60mm/sec on the older machine. The company has also introduced a new print bed, and print bed fixture, which ensures calibration, even during heavy use.
“Users can still count on both free professional support and the well-documented advice of the user community,” stated the company. “In addition, in the Creatr’14, we have incorporated our latest research to ensure increased reliability as well as a more durable calibration of the printer and increased user friendliness.”
Below you will find the general specifications of the Creatr ’14:
- Printer Size: 60 x 50 x 50 cm
- Single Extruder Build Envelope: 23 x 27 x 20 cm
- Layer Thickness: 0.05 – 0.35 mm
- Dual Extruder Build Envelope: 20x27x20 cm
- Positioning Precision: XY: 16.9 microns Z: 0.5 microns
- Nozzle Size: 0.35 mm
- Nozzle Temperature: 180° – 275° C
- File Format: STL, G-code
The printer is available with a single or dual extruder, depending on your needs and your budget. The single extruder version is priced at €1,249 (approx. $1620), while the double extruder version, which will allow for water soluble safe supports, is €1,499 (approx. $1,945). It is available now and will ship within 72 hours after an order is placed. Just like all the other Leapfrog 3D printers, the Creatr ’14 will arrive fully assembled at your doorstep, and is constructed out of sturdy laser-cut aluminum.
