Ditto 3D printer is based on open source machines and features a large and open work space for sizable prints. The build envelope for Ditto is 190 x 180 x 220mm. It can make quality prints of 0.2mm layer height at a max print speed 100mm/s. There are currently two versions available: for $999 you will receive Ditto wood Kit including everything you need to build a Ditto 3D printer in pine frame and one spool of 1kg PLA filament in white. For $1,199 you can get a Ditto laser cut acrylic version kit.

At the end of the Indiegogo campaign all the Ditto files will be released to the community as open source.
Tinkerine Studio made a speed v.s. quality test with infill speeds of 40, 60, 80, and 100 mm/s. Here are the results:
As you can see from the photos, the difference between each print is fairly minimal. One interesting fact we are seeing is that banding (misalignment on the outer walls) is more apparent at slower speeds, as evident in the 40mm/s test. At 80mm/s, the print presents slightly superior quality and takes significantly less time to complete. At 100mm/s, however, the quality starts to decrease, albeit only to a very small degree, and the print duration is only shortened by a minute or so. Based on our findings, we can conclude that the most optimal setting to achieve the perfect balance between speed and performance on Ditto seems to be at around 60-80mm/s.
