Airwolf 3D today announced it has added an entry-level 3D printer, the AW3D HDL to its line of high-performance 3D desktop printers.

The HDL features a build envelope of 1,100 cubic inches (12" x 8" x 11"). The printer offers layer-to-layer resolution as fine as 0.08 mm and a maximum speed of 150 mm/s. It comes fully assembled and calibrated.

Print media include biodegradable PLA, and PLA variants such as Soft PLA, LayBrick, LayWood, and BronzeFill as well as TPE and TPU filaments. The HDL also features modular design which allows users to gradually add capabilities such as the jam-resistant JRx hot end or dual hot-end that print engineering-grade filaments like polycarbonate and Bridge nylon.

"The AW3D HDL is not a toy for hobbyists," stated Erick Wolf, Airwolf 3D founder and chairman. "It's a serious professional 3D printer built in response to customers asking for a high-quality unit at an aggressive price point. The only difference between it and our most advanced 3D printer is the absence of technically advanced features, which can easily be added as needs and budgets dictate."

For software support, Airwolf 3D offers complimentary MatterControl PRO for organizing and managing all 3D prints. To help educators introduce students to 3D printing, Airwolf 3D also offers lesson plans on its website.

The HDL is priced at $2,295 and available for immediate purchase. The first public demonstration is scheduled for 3D Printer World Expo in Seattle, August 22-23, 2014.

Wow...I really like this design and am considering buying one, but the push to the bottom in terms of price will hurt quality companies like this. As a consumer who knows nothing about 3d printing, not sure if a $500 printer is good or this one at a much higher price. All I know is that you get what you pay for...usually. Headache!!! :)
