RapMan Goes Pro

By on October 26th, 2009 in blog


While everyone slept, the guys at RapMan managed to squeeze in yet another new product: the RapMan Pro, pictured above. What’s different from their original non-Pro Rapman, other than a price of “just under £2,000” up from the original £750 kit price? From their press release we can see the following:

  • Pre-built only; not a kit
  • More rigid chassis made of anodized aluminum – increases printing accuracy slightly
  • Z-axis uses lead screws for improved performance
  • Apparently “faster than most 3D printers on the market”, perhaps at this price range
  • Wide choice of polymer print media
We also think it looks cooler, and that’s always worth something. Nice work, RapMan!
