Industrial-grade EZ 3D printers are plug&play machines designed and manufactured by Shihjung YEH (aka Shihron), Brian Tsai and their company in Taiwan. It features:
- STEEL BOLT SCREW for XYZ axis
- Whole machine are made by metal
- SD card to transfer the data instead of connecting to PC (which make the machine working independently, won't affected by PC)
- The resolution/accuracy can be under 0.1mm
- Minimum Extrusion = 0.3mm, Layer = 0.2mm
The control system of EZ 3D printer is designed using standard cnc control techniques based on company's years experience with large-scale equipment.
The EZ 3D printers have two models: EZ 3D Printer-200 and EZ 3D Printer-200H.
Here are specifications of EZ 3D Printer-200:
- Build space: 200 x 150 x 100 mm
- Speed: 6000 mm/min (100 mm/sec)
- Software accuracy: 1/160mm
- Mechanic accuracy: 0.07mm
- Min. Layer thickness: 0.2mm (0.3mm nozzle), 0.4mm (0.5mm nozzle)
- Controller: arm7 32 mcu 128 * 64LCD + 25key I/O: Micro SD card
- Power: 24v Power mw 350W 24v Power, 5v Power mw 15W 5v Power
- 4 stepping motors (XYZ & Extruder)
- XYZ: Type 42 high torque motor
- Extruder: Type 57 high torque motor, aluminum
- Printer size: 600 x 350 x 400 mm
EZ 3D Printer-200H has the same specs but a bigger build area: 200 x 150 x 150 mm (Printer size: 600 x 350 x 500 mm), its MSRP is US$4,495.
The EZ 3D printers are not open source printers but it provides after-sale service with one year warrenty. It has also features such as high current motor driver and big heat sink for avoiding over-heating, 200w heated bed without plug-in circuit which could be heated to 130 degrees etc. Since its launch in 2011 it has sold more than 50 units to industrial designers and schools.
Below are vidoes and pictures of some nice prints made on the EZ 3D printers.

"I have to assembly" .. "all made by steel" nice grammar. Joshua Tompson are you Chinese? This sounds like astroturfing by manufacturer.

I've both this machine and Makerbot. I paid about $2500 for the Makerbot, and I have to assembly by myself, which took me couple days, not 4 hours as they stated. I have to play around the machine(adjust the accuracy) like 2~3 times a week. And there is a very very high chance it failed me after couple hours of printing. After I get this machine, done, that's it. The failure chance, waste of time, and BAD feelings are all gone. It's so worthy to pay that extra $1500 for all these hidden and valuable cost. Plus, i believe this machine can use for at least a decade since it's all made by steel, not WOOD......

WOw, that is some pretty mediocre-lloking print quality from a $4,000 machine. No thanks.
