Saelig Company, Inc. offers the Replicator™, an affordable, personal 3D printer that prints objects in 1- or 2-colors. The Replicator runs open-source 3D-printing code and is compact enough to fit on a desktop. Ready within minutes to start printing right out of the box, it turns raw feedstock, such ABS or PLA, into prototypes as large as a loaf of bread.
The Replicator is a precision-made parts fabricator, built with linear ball bearings and precision-ground 8 mm shafts. The build envelope is 225 x145 x150 mm (8.9 in. x 5.7 in. x 5.9 in.). It is available with single or dual extruders, facilitating simultaneous two-color printing.
This printer features a 4×20 character LCD panel and multi-directional control pad. The LCD screen provides build data as well as monitoring information, and full machine control is possible without the use of a computer. Using an SD Card slot or USB connection, model designs can be loaded and built directly from control pad commands.
You can quickly fabricate solid objects using tools like AutoCAD and Solidworks producing STL or gcode files. ReplicatorG software provided (Linux, Windows, and OSX compatible) enables rapid prototype production. Layer thickness may be selected from 0.2-0.3 mm with the stock 0.4 mm nozzle, and parts are built at a speed of 40 mm/s, with positioning precision of 2.5 micron (Z axis) and 11 micron (XY axes).
Sized for almost any desktop (320 x 467 x 381 mm; 12.6 in. x 18.4 in. x 15 in.) The Replicator weighs 26/29 lbs (single/dual). Made by Makerbot Industries, it is available now at $1699 for a single extruder and $1999 for a dual extruder, from Saelig Company, Inc. their USA technical distributor.
