A1 professional 3D printer

A1 is a new fused filament fabrication 3D printer launched via Kickstarter this week, designed to blend in at your home or work place providing fast, accurate and quite 3D printing. The A1 has been created by product developer and mechanical engineering Karl-Johan Regestam.

“Relying on newly patented technique and design with modular thinking, A1 is built to last and is ready for expansion with dual extruders for multi-material or a full enclosure for more technical materials. With its minimalist design, A1 gives you a great insight to the printing chamber and a quick access to swap your extruder for other nozzle sizes.”

“Relying on the new gantry and extruder design with an extremely lightweight and rigid construction, together with a 32 bit ARM processor for fast calculations, A1 allows you to play around with the travel speed up to 300 mm/s. Cut by laser and powder coated, A1 goes for high precision and quality. All of the electronics, stepper motors and the controller board are mounted in a unique back part, having an effective circulation of cool air for a stable performance. “
