When it comes to 3D printers manufactured in China, we have unfortunately seen quite a few machines that are basically knock-offs of the more popular machines found in the US and in Europe. With that said, there are always exceptions to the rule, and Luoyang, China-based Royee Technology Ltd. seems to be one of them.
This week it was announced that Royee Technology, a startup founded by Kevin Lv, would be teaming up with global 3D printer retailer 3DFilamenta to introduce a brand new, large volume delta-style 3D printer to the international market called the Royee II.
According to Lv, the Royee II should be able to easily compete with the bigger, older players within the industry. With features which will put most sub $2,000 printer to shame, Lv hopes that his machine will be a launching point for his relatively new company. Below is a quick look at some of the general specifications for the Royee II:
- Printer Size: 447mm (base length) x 1126mm (height)
- Build Volume: 260mm diameter x 420mm height (7098 cubic cm)
- X/Y Resolution: 0.05mm
- Z Resolution: 0.25mm
- Nozzle: 0.4 mm, optimized E3DV6
- Max Print Speed: 200mm/s
- Firmware: Marlin
- Filament size ad compatibility: PLA, ABS, PETG, PVA, PC, PA, Flexible at 1.75mm
- Connectivity: USB/SD Card
- Recommended Software: Repetier-Host
Able to print objects which are almost a foot and a half in height, this 3D printer is much larger than most. The size of the machine is only one key selling point, however. The Royee II also features a built-in camera to allow for monitoring of your prints via a WiFi connection, in addition to an air filtration system. Using an activated carbon filter and HEPA filter, the Royee II ensures that harmful fumes are not released into the surrounding environment. This is a rather worthwhile feature, especially for those with children around.
If simplicity is important to you, then the machine’s auto bed leveling system, and plug and play capabilities will be an added benefit. The Royee II, which is priced at $1,995, and available immediately for pre-order, seems to pack quite a punch for it’s reasonable price tag. Full production will begin in March, according to the company.
