  1. Turnigy Fabrikator 3D Printer 

    Latest from HobbyKing:

    Turnigy Fabrikator, our worst kept secret is here; what we didnít leak out was how good it is. This is the best value for money printer on the market with the features and quality of printers three times the price.

    No longer is 3D printing technology the exclusive realm of hard-core technophiles and industrial designers, it is now accessible to anybody with a computer and the ability to put flat pack furniture together. Whether you are into planes, multi-rotors, cars, boats, helicopters, robotics, trains or even anime figurines the Fabrikator will soon become your most versatile tool. Canít find that rare part for your old model or you just want to modify an existing piece? Now you can print what you want, when you want it.

    Turnigy Fabrikator is able to use the ABS and PLA filaments already available from a HobbyKing warehouse near you and can print high quality finishes achievable at 150mm/sec. Gone are the days of setting the printer before you go to bed and hoping the job is finished when you get up. 3D printers used to be just for pre-production models and proof of concept for designs, but now you can design, print and use the part in all sorts of applications.

    This incredibly well engineered printer featuring a rock solid frame, super stable quad rail supported print plate, high quality NEMA Class motors, removable glass print platform and twin belt Y axis drives means you are able to print highly accurate pieces time and time again, without the need for constant mechanical adjustments.

    This is not just a great machine, we have taken it a step further and have created a series of videos that will guide you step-by-step to build and set up your printer along with a unique live dynamic and updatable trouble shooting guide that is available under the files tab below, but because the Fabrikator is so simple to use you wonít be needing much help.

    To make the Fabrikator as affordable as possible for you we have designed it as a simple to put together flat pack kit, which if you follow the excellent manual in conjunction with the video series you will have it built in a few hours. Itís so easy we got our least technical staff member to put one together and he had it going in less than six hours.

    That looks way interesting....price is good too.
    84 RC's and counting

    We were talking at work about building a replacement gear for a door lock on one of my engineer's car doors and then I got the email about this. Price is definitely enticing.

    more specs are need ..Like what is the compounds... what are there tolerances ? what kinda heat and cold can the completed product handle.. as for use in a cars lock.hmmm kinda hard here when temps go from Negative 15 in winter to over 100 Degrees F in summer not counting suns heat factor..of over 165 degrees F

    but it looks nice what software do i need to run this can i use autocad or is there a scanner with this ?

    It doesn't say on their website but I do see a manual (didn't read it yet) so maybe it will answer your questions:

    I wonder if the printing quality is the same as with 3x expensive printers as they state.
