Check Out the New All-Metal Printrbot Plus

3D printer maker Printrbot continues its evolution into a more mature industrial design with the release of the new metal Printrbot Plus.

Originally launched with an open-source laser-cut plywood designs and a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign, the company released many iterations of its design, both big, small and portable, since 2011. Last year they marked a big transition with the release of their first metal-framed printer, a remake of the small and super-affordable Simple. And since then they’ve been growing in various retail spaces including RadioShack and Amazon.

Printrbot’s founder Brook Drumm sends the following details:

Price: $999 single extruder (w/o heated bed)
Print dimension: 10x10x10″
Heated bed and dual extruder available for $1299 – includes 24V power supply for plenty of power and faster heat on heated (no more ATX PSU)
New all metal Ubus hotend
All metal, powder coated
Mic6 aluminum bed (ready for heater if you choose)
X&Y are linear rails
Super low profile design — significantly smaller than previous version of the Plus
Takes up minimal room on your desk
Easy to carry
GT2 belts for x and y, acme rod for Z

“We are really proud of this design and think it’s our best work and best design yet,” Brook says. “It goes on sale Black Friday and will be available in kit or fully assembled.”
