Copymaster 3D is the latest new brand to venture into the world of 3D printing. The price and extensive list of features that the three new models offer, suggest that Copymaster is a name to keep an eye out for. Due to launch worldwide on the 27th August, the Copymaster 3D looks to be a compelling alternative to the likes of Creality and Wanhao in the budget-mid range sector. So what does Copymaster 3D do that makes it a great option?
High Performance & Affordable
When you are looking to buy a cheaper 3D printer, normally you have to sacrifice high performance for affordability and vice versa. The Copymaster 3D claims to be no compromise.
The Copymaster 3D is available in 3 models:
- Copymaster 300 – (300 x 300 x 400mm) – £499 ($637)
- Copymaster 400 – (400 x 400 x 400mm) – £599 ($764)
- Copymaster 500 – (500 x 500 x 500mm) – £699 ($892)
The model numbers are relative to the build size of the printer, with the 500 having the largest build volume of the three. Having a bigger build size to play with immediately increases the scope of the things that you can print. Reducing that limitation makes the Copymaster so much more accessible to those who just want to print what they want.
Print Flexible As Standard
The Copymaster 3D is compatible with a wide range of different filaments as standard. The direct drive integrated extruder head can print with flexible filament straight out of the box with no additional modifications or upgrades needed.
The extruder head has also been created to be incredibly precise. Copymaster claims to have a print accuracy that is within 50 microns – thinner than a single human hair – so finished prints should be very accurate to the design files that are used.
Intricate UK Design
When you see a Copymaster 3D printer first hand, you clearly notice the thoughtful details and the nice touches throughout the design. Copymaster was designed by a small team of people who love 3D printers and actually use them on a day to day basis, at home and at work, so they knew how to make the Copymaster 3D stand out.
The Copymaster 3D is an open design, all in one unit made from industrial grade aluminum. This makes it very strong and stable when printing, which attributes to the excellent print accuracy. It is simple to assemble and only takes about 20 minutes so it’s not as daunting for beginners.
The Copymaster 3D also comes with a magnetic and flexible heated print bed as standard. It is very easy to use and has been specifically designed to take the hassle out of print removal so you can expect more consistent results for a variety of different filaments. A diamond black glass print surface upgrade is also available.
Another great feature of the Copymaster is the no-filament sensor. Running your printer for several hours only for the print to fail because you ran out of filament is probably one of the biggest frustrations you can ever experience in 3D printing. But the no-filament sensor will rescue countless 3D print jobs as it automatically pauses the printer if it detects that the filament has run out. This allows you to swap out the filament and it automatically resumes printing as normal. You’ve still lost a little bit of time, but at least you haven’t ruined your print.
“Making 3D Printing Easier and More Accessible”
The founder of Copymaster 3D and CEO of Technology Outlet, the UK’s leading online retailer for 3D printers, Tim Gray, gave a brief explanation of why he wanted to create the Copymaster 3D:
“Ultimately, I wanted to make 3D printing easier and more accessible for more people. I wanted to let people experiment with a range of different filaments without running into incompatibility issues with their printer or finding out that the print size of their printer isn’t big enough to make the project they want. After working at Technology Outlet for several years, I have seen a lot of demand and have been regularly asked for an affordable printer that offers this functionality. So I thought I’d make the solution. I’m really happy with how the Copymaster turned out.”
Copymaster 3D printers will start shipping worldwide from the 27th August and all preorders will get any two filaments for free. Also, as a celebration for the launch, Copymaster 3D is selling its first 50 pre-orders with a 20% discount, which means you could get one for as low as £399!
