If you are like most designers, you want to receive your 3D printer, set it up, and get printing as soon as possible. The AW3D XL allows you to do this as it is calibrated and assembled before it ever leaves the factory.
The AW3D is able to print items with maximum dimensions of 7 x 12 x 8 inches. The filament that is used with this printer is not the industry standard 1.75mm filament, but rather the larger 3mm variety. The type of filaments able to be printed include nylon, plastic, and wood. The AW3D can print in multiple colors, but can only print in one color at a time.
Print tolerance is the 3D printing industry’s way of describing how detailed a creation can be. With a print tolerance of .04mm, the AW3D is able to produce creations with unparalleled detail.
Airwolf, the company that produces the AW3D, goes through the trouble of calibrating each and every printer before they leave the factory. This means that your printer will be able to be put to use as soon as you receive it.
The printer comes with a power supply and USB cable as well as a flash drive which contains the necessary software to link your computer with the printer. ABS filament is also included with your purchase.
The AW3D has a price range of $2,000 to $2,500.
The software included with the AW3D is Repetier Firmware, Pronterface Print Controller, and Slic3R GCode Generator.
Medium-sized objects can be printed quickly as this printer has a print speed of 150 mm/second. The actual speed at which your creation is produced is wholly dependent on your settings and whether your creation is solid or hollow.
The AW3D’s ability to print many different materials gives you the freedom to create a plethora of designs. Your creativity is put to good use on this printer as the creations you produce can be extremely intricate and detailed.
The sole drawback lies in the fact that you can only print in one color at a time. If you can look past that, this maintenance and setup free device lets you get started printing right away with ease.
