In collaboration with Germany company "PrintMate 3D", iGo3D, the first 3D printer store in Germany releases the "Printmate 3D" 3D Printer.

The printMATE 3D is an easy to assemble Workshop DIY 3D-Printer kit developed for schools. The Kit contains precision 6mm laser cut beech wood parts and all necessary parts for initial operation. Cable connections are ready for plug & print - no soldering skills and no crimping is required.

In order to provide standalone operation the KIT contains a LCD control panel with encoder which is connected to a high power RAMPS Board. Axis are driven by high torque NEMA 17 steppers which allow moving speeds up to 150 mm/s. Linear ball bearings in combination with hardened steel rods provide smooth operation, low friction and reduced wear. It is possible for printMATE 3D to print with a resolution of 50 microns.

The printMATE 3D is compatible with common host and slicer programs. The machine is based upon the RepRap project. Thus it is published under creative commons-attribution-non commercial-share alike 3.0 license.

Yes, a plywood 3D printer frame is the key to longevity. The 3D printer community just can't let a bad idea die, can they?
