3D PrinterWorks Begins Shipping First CreatorBot 3D Printers

Share this Article

Bigger is usually better in the world of 3D printing. Unless you just don’t have the space for a larger machine, or can’t afford the higher prices often associated with such a machine, there isn’t t3much of a reason to not want a larger 3D printer.

Back in June, we covered a company called 3D PrinterWorks, who at the time was preparing to launch a crowdfunding campaign for their 3D printer they called the CreatorBot 3D.

“We are excited about entering the 3D Printer market with the introduction of our Flagship model, the CreatorBot 3D printer,” stated Tom Kilar, President and CEO of 3D Printerworks. “As passionate Makers we wanted to engineer a commercial grade printer with a large build volume that can be purchased at an affordable price. With built in performance features and a robust design the CreatorBot 3D will give years of trouble free printing”

Promising to offer a large machine, which wasn’t priced like one, the Kilar, and 3D PrinterWorks raised over $75,000 on Kickstarter, easily eclipsing 3D PrinterWorks’ set goal of $30,000. The project was successfully funded on August 5, thanks to 79 backers who have been patiently waiting for the first printers to begin shipping. Today we got word that the wait is finally over.

“We shipped our first round of printer kits to our customers and are receiving great feedback on the quality and service we have provided so far,” Kilar told 3DPrint.com.

Starting at just $1,595 and maxing out at $1,895 (with dual extruders, heat bed, and acrylic enclosure), the CreatorBot 3D features a build envelope of 12″ x 12″ x 18″, making it a tremendous bang for the buck. Additionally, as supporters of the RepRap movement, the key components of the CreatorBot 3D have been designed specifically to be 3D printable on most machines on the market. As for the printer’s capabilities, below you will find its key specifications.

  • Printer Size: 22.5 x 24.5 x 28″
  • Printer Weight: 60 lbs
  • Build Envelope: 12 x 12 x 18″
  • Layer Height: 100 microns
  • Nozzle Diameter: 0.4mm
  • Filament Size and Compatibility: ABS, PLA, Nylon, Carbon Fiber at 1.75mm
  • Firmware: Marlin

The company is also planning to offer filament spools with larger capacities, so that there is less of a need to swap them out as often. Additionally, they are also making available a cabinet stand, constructed from similar materials as the printer itself, which provides 6 cu/ft. of storage space.

It will be interesting to watch as additional feedback on this machine begins to make its way online.  Let us know if you have received your CreatorBot 3D printer yet. Post your feedback, questions, and general thoughts in the CreatorBot 3D forum thread on 3DPB.com.
