It really is interesting to watch new 3D printers come to market. While many printers are almost identical to others, being copies of those which seem to already be well positioned within the market, there are others which feature plenty of unique, innovative ideas and gadgets. Speed, price, ease to use, and accuracy are the four main criteria most consumers look at when deciding on a 3D printer. If a company can manage to improve upon one or two of these criteria, when compared to the average devices on the market, they will likely realize success.
One company hopes to capitalize by offering an impressive machine which caters to all four of these criteria. Lewihe, has unveiled their Lewihe 3D printer today, and it’s quite the device. The Lewihe 3D printer is designed and manufactured in Spain, and utilizes a core XY system. As you can see by the specifications below, this printer is quite impressive for it’s 599€ ($815) price tag.
- Printer Weight: 8.5 Kg
- Print Technology: Fused deposition modeling
- Build Envelop: 185 x 185 x 185 mm
- Layer Resolution: 50 microns
- Filament Diamter: 1.75 mm
- Filament material Type: PLA, ABS, LAYWOOD, FILAFLEX and others
- Nozzle Diameter: 0.4 mm
- File Type: STL and OBJ
- Other Features: Open source software, Aluminium chasis, CORE XY system, SAV Mk-I, USB, WiFi + On board camera option
Additionally, the Lewihe 3D Printer is the fastest known printer of FILAFLEX, flexible filament on the market, printing at a staggering 150 mm/s. With print speeds like this, and a price tag under $1000, this certainly could be a hit product. Those behind the company have been working for 15 months to perfect the printer.
Lewihe expects to begin selling their 3D printer sometime before the end of this month. Let us know if you plan on ordering one in the Lewihe 3D printer forum thread on 3DPB.com. Check out the video below for a brief overview of the printer as well as a sample print which really shows off the speed of this device.
