In early February, Solidoodle, makers of the first fully assembled $500 3D printer, the Solidoodle 2, unveiled the newest addition to the Solidoodle family.
The Solidoodle 3 is incased in an all-steel frame, which means that a two hundred pound man can stand on top of it while it is printing. Not only is the Solidoodle 3 durable, but it also contains one of the largest build areas in the desktop category of 3D printers. With its dimensions of 8” X 8” X 8” (512 cubic inches), it has more than twice the volume of its predecessor, which had only 216 cubic inches.
According to Solidoodle, the Solidoodle 3 3D printer will allow users to print larger objects with up to .1mm in layer resolution. Although it is slightly more expensive than the Solidoodle 2, with a price tag of $799, the Solidoodle 3 still falls within Solidoodle’s goals of creating high-quality plug-n-play 3D printers, which fall well below typical 3D printing industry prices.
