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.
