A 3D printer kit for just €69 has been released
Spanish company Lewihe is now selling probably the cheapest 3D printer in the world, the PLAY, priced at 69 euros (about $79 USD). The company says it is designed for personal use and is labeled as a 'Makers edition'.
The PLAY comes as a kit which incluces includes iron plate structure, extruder support, print surface, metal shafts, complete assembly video and a file with all printed parts, so you need a previous 3D printer or a 3D printing service to build the plastic parts. There is no mention about the hot-end, stepper motors and elctronics.
The machine features a 105x105x130 mm build volume with FFF (fused filament fabrication) technology. The gantry system is an H-Bot and it can work with 1.75 mm filament (rigid or elastic). The machine is very lightweight, just 2.5kg , and needs an external power supply.
The product is currently in pre-order to be shipped early August.
