Printrbot Assembled PLUS (v2.1) 3D Printer, ABS/PLA Filament, 1.75mm Ubis Hot End, 8″ x 8″ x 8″ Build Volume

The Printrbot PLUS (v2.1) 3D printer comes fully assembled, has an open platform, a frame constructed of machined aluminum and laser-cut birch wood, and fabricates objects using ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) or PLA (polylactic acid) thermoplastic filament, with a vertical resolution of 100 microns (0.10 mm). The printer can build objects to maximum dimensions of 8 x 8 x 8 inches/203 x 203 x 203 mm (H x W x D). It comes with a direct drive extruder with a cooling fan, and an Ubis hot end that accepts 1.75 mm ABS or PLA filament. The hot end can be replaced to accept 3mm filament (both sold separately). The printer is commanded through the provided micro USB cable using G-code numerical control instructions. An SD memory card slot can store G-Code instructions on a memory card (sold separately) for operation without a connection to a computer. It can be used with 3D printer management software packages (sold separately). The frame is made of laser-cut birch wood. The aluminum build platform heats to help provide thermal stability. Machined aluminum axis rods with linear bearings and injection molded gears help ensure precise movement. The size 17 stepper motors meet the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) standard ICS 16-2001. The printer comes with a sample of PLA filament.

*H is height, the vertical distance from the lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.

3D printers fabricate physical objects directly from computer-aided-design (CAD) data sources. Objects created by additive manufacturing are built by dispensing successive thin layers of molten material onto a moving platform base from a robotic extruder nozzle. The material is most commonly a thermoplastic or HDPE (high-density polyethylene) filament.

Printrbot manufactures desktop 3D printers and accessories. The company is headquartered in Lincoln, CA.

  1. Exceeded my expectations For a while prior to purchasing my Printrbot Plus V2.1 3D printer directly form Printrbot, I had been following both Brook and his company and their progress.I came across Printbot while researching a potential investment opportunity with a large 3D printer manufacturer. A news article directed me to a growingly successful “KickStarter” campaign for a 3D printer made by a guy named Brook. Both Brook’s story and the product he created intrigued me, but I was not ready to jump in on the…

  2. Printrbot Plus I got my first Printrbot back in October 2012. It was a bit clunky and then Support was really bad and questions would take an age to answer. But it worked and worked really well.For ages I would only print ABS, I did some rapid prototyping for a member of the London Hackspace and everything was really good. And then, after about 10 months after having my Printer, I had a problem with the heated bed. I emailed them, thinking even a response would take an age, but with 2 weeks…
