The CoLiDo line of 3D printers has a lot going for it. We’ve written quite a bit about the company, a subsidiary of Hong Kong’s Print-Rite Holdings, over the past couple of years, and there’s a lot to like about CoLiDo printers, including easy-removal print platforms, exceptionally quiet printing, and several specialty material offerings. Despite being such a young company, CoLiDo has already released eight 3D printers as part of the series, plus a 3D printing pen, and now they’re about to introduce their ninth.
CoLiDo printers come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, from the $299 DIY kit to the gigantic CoLiDo Mega. There’s a dual-extruder model, as well as a high-resolution DLP printer. Now, just in time for the company’s Black Friday sale, CoLiDo is introducing a new delta-style 3D printer, the Delta D1315.
The D1315 is CoLiDo’s second delta-style printer, after the massive Mega. Designed for all skill levels from beginner to expert, this printer is much more modestly sized than the Mega, meant for the production of small to medium objects rather than, say, full-sized furniture – but with the print speed that only a delta can provide.
“With simplicity in mind, our Delta D1315 has advantages of less complicated construction, non-moving build platform, as well as lighter moving parts, which add up to ensure high-speed, smooth and precise prints,” the company states.
The Delta D1315 features a circular build platform, a steel frame and an extremely light weight of only 4.5 kg (9.9 lbs). It requires no calibration, and, according to CoLiDo, its print speed is 2.7 times faster than a typical Cartesian 3D printer. It doesn’t shirk on print quality, either, with the capability of printing to a resolution as high as 50 microns. It’s also designed to require very little energy consumption – about as much as a 60-watt light bulb, the company says.
- Printer dimensions: 250 x 445 mm
- Build size: 130 x 150 mm
- Layer resolution: 0.05 mm
- Nozzle diameter: 0.4 mm
- Filament size: 1.75 mm
- Material: PLA
- Connectivity: USB
- Operating temperature: 15-32°C (32-90°F)
- Software bundle: Print-Rite Repetier-HOST
- Operating systems: Windows 7, Mac OS X, Linux
- Supported file type: STL/G-code
The Delta D1315 lends itself to a diverse array of applications, including prototyping, small tool production, education, and personal creation. The simply designed printer meets that enviable combination of being easy and straightforward enough that beginners should be able to use it with no trouble, yet high-quality enough that more experienced and even professional makers will find it capable of meeting their needs.
While an exact cost hasn’t been revealed for the Delta D1315 yet, CoLiDo 3D printers have always been in a very reasonable price range, so this one should be affordable for the wide range of customers it was designed to appeal to. The D1315 will be launching as part of CoLiDo’s Black Friday sale, so don’t be surprised by even further discounts. In addition to the CoLiDo website, the Delta D1315 will be available via Amazon US, Amazon UK and all CoLiDo distributors.
CoLiDo just released their first 3D printer in 2014, so the fact that their inventory has risen to so many offerings within two years is impressive. In addition to 3D printers , CoLiDo also offers a wide variety of materials, including PLA, ABS, flexible TPU and composites. (They even sell some fun color-changing filament.) Beyond their headquarters in Hong Kong, Print-Rite also has offices in the United States, United Kingdom, China and Macau. Currently, Print-Rite and CoLiDo are seeking additional distributors and resellers in the US in particular.
