This German made €979 (USD$1,290) build-it yourself kit is based on the RepRap Darwin design and includes a rather hefty build volume of 190x200x185mm (slightly reduced if an optional second print head is installed).
The key specs:
- 3mm filament required
- 0.5mm nozzle
- Pre-assembled heater
- Acrylic print surface (heated option available)
- Rubber mounts to reduce vibration
- Up to 115mm/s XY print movement
- Online wiki with all the information required
One interesting feature that stuck out to us was the case. It's made of water jet-cut aluminum. This ensures not only a groovy appearance, but makes the device very solid. However, water jet cutting sometimes leaves scratches and other messes on the aluminum surfaces, so Shapercube offers an option: glass-bead blasted aluminum panels for an extra €100 (USD$132). We'd take that option in a nanosecond.
Currently they've sold out the first batch and are awaiting a second production run.
