What many people in the United States do not realize is the fact that Germany is a hotbed for 3D printing. The European nation is third, only to the United States and Japan in additive manufacturing output. Germany is also one of the global leaders in consumer based 3D printers, known in their country as 3D Druckers.
A German 3D printer manufacturer, German RepRap GmbH, has just announced that they will be expanding their marketing efforts to the United States, as well as the United Kingdom. Starting this week, they will be making their new NEO 3D Printer available to both markets. The printer has been selling in Germany for several months, and has been the recipient of many positive reviews. It has the ability to print at high speeds, and has a fairly large build chamber.
Here are the Specifications of the German RepRap Neo 3D Printer:
- Dimensions: 330 x 330 x 330 mm
- Weight: ~ 6 kg
- Printing volume (X/Y/Z): 150 x 150 x 150 mm
- Materials: 1.75mm PLA
- Max Extruder temperature: 265 °C
- Speed: ~ 15mm³ / Sec
- Layer Thickness min: 0.1 mm
- Nozzle sizes: 0.3 / 0.4 / 0.5 mm
- Positioning accuracy: +/- 0.1 mm
- Power consumption: ~ 50 W
- Voltage: 230 V
The printer can be purchased directly from the company for 699€ ($961), and will work out of the box. This printer requires no setup and does not need to be assembled, making it perfect for those less fluent in building 3D printers.
German RepRap GmbH is known for their high quality, manufacturing level 3D printers. They offer several models ranging anywhere in price from 699€ to over 5700€. They are headquartered in Feldkirchen, near Munich, and were originally established as German RepRap Foundation in 2010.
