3D Printers Online Store has recently launched the xi3 Prusa, and the printer has a long and varied history of development.
Josef Prusa was never satisfied with the status quo. Fascinated with the way things function, Prusa was constantly looking for better ways to improve and change those devices. By the age of 18, Prusa had already published his own chapter in a book by O’reilly, iPhone Hacks. Since 2010, the main focus of his work has shifted to developing the open source 3D printer project RepRap and the open source hardware movement in general.
The 23-year-old student from the Czech Republic first posted the plans for the Prusa i3 to a GitHub repository in May 2012 , and as of September 2012, his document Final Refactoring Complete was online.
A result of the RepRap movement, there are now many RepRap Prusa Mendel versions which have been replicated around the world, and the Czech Republic’s maker scene has grown as a result.
Now 3D Printers Online Retail Store Limited, an online marketplace where users can buy inexpensive 3D printers, is offering various kinds of 3D printers. 3D Printers Online Store says they’re the world’s largest, multi-brand 3D printing e-store. They work closely with a network of suppliers and reputed brand manufacturers to offer a large supply of 3D printers and materials.
As for the xi3 Prusa, it features a build volume of 210 × 210 × 215 mm is capable of layer resolution down to 100 microns at a print precision of 0.1-0.4mm. It includes an LCD screen, operates at nozzle temperatures to 210℃ and a maximum of 260℃. Connections are via SD Card or USB, and the printer can run on Windows XP,Windows Vista,Windows 7, or MAC OX.
Software chores are handled via Repetier-Host, Cura or Slic3r, and it can print a list of materials from PLA to ABS to HIPS to Wood to PVA, Nylon, PLA and copperFill, with 1.75mm filament.
And for the price-conscious among you, you can have your own version of the printer for just $238, and that includes free shipping. This is a limited time special price, and soon the Prusa xi3 will be back to the standard price of $349.
