    3D printer home kits K8200 PROMOTION VIDEO

    A home kit for 3D printing, going to cost 700:







    What is the Velleman K8200?

    It's a build it yourself 3D printer kit for everyone. It's super easy to use, and helps you turn your ideas into real stuff you can hold, like toys, product prototypes, and replacement parts.
    How Does It Work?

    The printer layers up the plastic to form a solid object. It melts plastic filament, then draws with it in a very fine layer. It then builds another layer of plastic on top, then another, and another, building your design in levels from the bottom up until you have a plastic object ready to hold and use.


    What Can I Make?

    The only limit to what you can create is the size of the K8200 print area. That's the beauty of the printer, if you can imagine it and build a 3D design (very simple with free software) you can print it!

    You can make prototype products, components to adapt your home, toys, handles, phone cases, chess pieces, models and almost anything you can imagine



    What Colours Can I Use?

    The cartridges that work with the K8200 come in different colours - black, white, blue, red, orange, green, yellow and pink. You can use one colour at a time while printing. If you want your creation to be multicoloured you can print it in separate pieces and attach them together later. You can't swap the cartridge in the middle of a print. Replacement cartridges cost 29.99 for 1KG of PLA.

    How Long Does It Take To Print?

    This of course depends on how large and complex your idea is. To give you a baseline, to print a smartphone case would take about 30 minutes. All prints start out as a 3D computer design and are then printed out by the K8200.

    Things are going to change pretty quick with people being able to make their own gear!
