Deezmaker announced its Bukito lightweight, portable 3-D printer at Bay Area MakerFaire this year.

The printable space is approximately 5 by 6 by 5 inches (150 cubic inches). Other critical features inherited from its larger Bukobot cousins include sturdy aluminum rails allowing for a stable platform for accurate printing.

According to Diego Porqueras, Deezmaker's President, the Bukito is a small, rugged printer that anyone can take with them. "It will be ideal for classroom use and can be shared between a few teachers at a school. We built it with an easy-to-grip handle and worked really hard to get the weight down to about 6 pounds."

Specifications:

  • 150 cubic inches of freedom (5"x6"x5" / 127 x 152 x 127 mm)
  • Works with Eco-Freindly and Safe PLA
  • 100mm+/sec speeds
  • Sturdy Aluminum frame (no wooden parts)
  • Uses 1.75mm filament
  • Adaptable to Battery Power

The unassembled printer kit will retail for $649. It is available for preorder now with an expected ship date in late August.

Deezmaker is also introducing an upgraded version of its Bukobot. Porqueras says that the Bukobot version 2, "has our compact extruder with an all-metal nozzle, which can operate at higher temperatures to enable more materials including PLA, ABS, nylon and polycarbonate." There will also be a dual-extruder version. The single-extruder kit will have a price point of about $1200, and the dual about $1500.

Features:

  • Rigid aluminum frame
  • 8"x8"x8" (200x200x200mm) build volume
  • All Metal & High Quality "Spitfire" Extruder for fast printing
  • Next generation Azteeg X1 (X3 optional) controller board, Arduino compatible
  • Prints with ABS, PLA, Nylon, Polycarbonate, PVA, HIPS and other common filaments
  • Tastu v2 Extruder Drive Gear for the best grip on your filament
  • Strong Synchromesh Cables for X/Y Axis (better than old style belts)
  • Upgradable to Dual Extruders
  • 200mm+/sec print speeds
  • Compatible with lots of FREE open source firmwares and host apps
  • Heavy duty power supply for optimal printing

That drive gear seems a bit much, like it's designed to look cool while sacrificing actual functionality. It looks like a 10mm diameter thread, which is a huge mismatch from the 3mm filament. I don't think it would have as good engagement as 4mm or 5mm thread.
