Fast 3D printer at a bargain price
Oct 08, 2013
reichelt elektronik now offers the K8200, a high-performance 3D printer kit from the Belgian manufacturer Velleman, for € 587,39 (~490,47 GBP). Exclusively at reichelt, the kit includes the tools needed for assembly, with a value of € 33,53 (~27,99 GBP), at no cost.
Constructors of models and samples, design engineers, students, architects, artists or repair technicians – in short, anyone who needs single copies or small lots of self-designed or obsolete objects – can now manufacture them at their own convenience with a 3D printer. Objects can be printed down to the nanometer range. The Velleman K8200 uses Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) technology to create three-dimensional objects with a size of up to 20 x 20 x 20 cm, either from PLA (polylactide) or ABS (acrylnitrile butadiene styrene). A very precise printed object is ensured by the heated printing plate (for even application of the melt layer) in combination with the air cooler (for fast hardening of the part).
The especially low price is due in part to the fact that the printer is delivered in the form of a kit. Assembly requires only a few hours and is facilitated by the inclusion of a multimeter, an LCD vernier calliper and a soldering iron, at no cost – exclusively at reichelt. The Velleman K8200 is compatible with the 3D printers of the RepRap project, for use with open-source software for Windows, Mac or Linux. Such speed and precision are achieved by four NEMA 17 stepper motors, high-quality linear ball bearings and Arduino-based control electronics. Fully assembled the 3D printer has a compact design with outer dimensions of 60 x 45 x 60 cm and a weight of 8.7 kg. The printer comes with a German connection cord (IEC plug <> Schuko plug). For the usage in other countries please order a proper IEC connection cable along with your printer.
