picWhile many don’t appreciate being ‘stereotyped’ for one negative reason or another, I doubt Geeetech minds being accused of presenting us with the superior quality, streamlined aesthetics, and engineering for which Germany is known and admired throughout the world. They’ve been busy improving on their original designs as well in 3D printing, and it’s worth investigating from every angle.

Just one look at the Me Ducer 3D printer, a companion piece to the Me Creator, makes you want to click on ‘Add to Cart’ (for pre-order) due to the streamlined, elegant design. Thankfully, while you might be distracted enough to buy based on beauty, brains are included in the package as well, with function and quality just as high on its list of accolades. With just a little more refinement than its predecessor — the Me Creator — the Me Ducer is perfect for use at home, office, lab, or classroom as a high resolution printer with industrial strength both inside and out.

The Me Ducer 3D printer boasts an aircraft-grade aluminum print plate

This 3D printing beauty comes to you completely turnkey. Retailing at just under $600, the machine boasts affordability along with its brains and beauty. That’s a lot of benefits all under one roof. Promising you strength, durability, and wear resistance, the Me Ducer boasts a black piano finish with a thickness of 8mm.

You’ll notice right away that this model is not nearly as exposed as other creations by Geeetech, as they’ve placed an attractive steel hood over the extruder, not only giving your 3D printer a finished look but also providing a safety mechanism, preventing kids or curious pets from the high temperatures of the extruder area. The main control system is also covered in its base case, all in all making for a hazardous-free, comfortable 3D printing experience.

The skilled German team wanted to make sure their 3D printer did not have any issues with vibrations so they used 12mm-diameter steel bearings for the Y and Z axes which also made it more accurate for positioning. The team points out that it has a knob for fine-tuning the Z-axis, for easy regulation and accuracy.

The Me Ducer 3D printer is compatible with Mac, Windows, and Linux operating systems, and offers support of SD cards. Users can choose between PLA or ABS material for printing, and the Me Ducer does have a heated print bed with a build volume of 180 x 150 x 15 mm.
