3D Printer

3D printing or additive manufacturing is a process of creating a three-dimensional solid object of virtually any shape from a digital model. It is achieved using an additive process, where successive layers of material are laid down in different shapes.

Started as a educational project and as a aid for future projects, this has grown into a 3D printer startup - “bolt3d” (https://www.bolt3dprinters.com/) . Reprap Prusa i3 was taken as the base and improvements were made from there on. Close to 80% of the new design was indigenous and made in house.

From a builder's perspective it has a rigid structure made out of metal. Rigidity plays a major role in determining the accuracy of a print. Even the slightest of the disturbance can be a problem. High torque stepper motors ensure there is nothing stopping it from doing its job.

With SD card support and a LCD display this makes sure this is a stand alone. Just plug it in and power it up and insert the SD card, you will see the printer in action. With a fast printing speed, high build volume of 8000cm3 ,60 micron layer thickness and a 0.4mm nozzle it plays its role to perfection.

Auto bed leveling, metal hot end and heated build plate and few of its notable features. It supports any spool (PLA/ABS) and is compatible with WIndows/Mac/Linux.
