Share this Article

volgofeaturedRussia is a country which has really been breaking ground within the 3D printing space as of late. More and more manufacturers of 3D printers and 3D printing materials are coming about, as are retailers who resell these machines. For one company, called VolgoBot, which has been around since 2014, their first 3D printer, the VolgoBot 1.0, has officially been unveiled.

The VolgoBot 1.0 is an FFF-based 3D printer that features a build volume of 200 x 200 x 250 mm, and the ability to print with a minimum layer thickness of just 0.04mm in PLA, ABS, Nylon, PET and flexible filaments.

“The main objective of the project was to develop a model of professional printer, which would be the best in its price range, so we used the best components and the best materials for this purpose,” the founder of VolgoBot, Mikhail Kozenko, explains. “The printer is designed with a clean slate, so many common problems such as: jams in the extruder; the inability to print FLEX rubber-like materials; overheating of the electronics; insufficient and uneven cooling of the printed parts; design flexibility of the printer; inconvenience coil arrangement with consumables, and many others were taken into account at the while it was developed.”

The printer is actually quite a reliable and durable machine, according to Kozenko, and they are currently undergoing internal testing within the company. Currently the beta version of the VolgoBot 1.0 is available for purchase for just 47,000 Russian Rubles (approximately $700), although the final version will be priced at around 70,000 Rubles (approximately $1040).
