xlbot2Just last week, we reported on the 3DP Unlimited 3DP1000 3D Printer, which features a gigantic build platform, capable of printing objects as large as 1m x 1m x 0.5m in size. The printer was a big hit at the RAPID conference in Detroit last week as well.  It appears as though large build FDM 3D printers are becoming quite the sensation, as this week there is another gigantic 3D printer that has been announced, and is available to pre-order. The XLBot is the latest 3D printer to come about, that features a huge build volume. It’s a printer capable of producing 3D printed objects almost as large as the 3DP1000, but at a fraction of the cost.

The XLBot is now available for pre-order via MakeMendel.com for only $3,999., which is an astounding price for a 3D printer this size. The machine measures 1m x 1m x 600 mm, and is capable of printing objects with dimensions of 900mm x 900mm x 500mm (aproximately 3′ x 3′ x 1’8″), with a layer thickness of 0.1mm. It can also print at speeds of up to 60mm/s, using a nozzle with a diameter of 0.4mm.

This 3D printer features an LCD controller, a modified print bed adjustment, a bottom mounted Ramps 1.4 and power supply which gives it a clean appearance. The frame of the machine is built with aluminum, which helps provide a stable and compact design.

xlbot3Since the printer is so large (weight of 40kg), it will come unassembled, so it will require a little time and effort to get it up and running. Pre-orders are underway, and orders currently require a lead time of 3 weeks.

Considering that this printer is priced so well, it wouldn’t be surprising to see many of these sell quite quickly to those individuals and businesses who wish to have a 3D printer capable of printing extremely large objects in their garage or workshop. Compared to the price of the 3DP1000 ($15,999), this printer makes a lot of sense for those with limited budgets.  The only downside to printing objects this large, is that filament prices can add up quite quickly.

What do you think? Would you consider buying one of these? Discuss in the XLBot forum thread at 3DPB.com.
