Phoenix 3D printer – powered by the ATMega1284P

The Phoenix 3D printer – powered by Atmel’s versatile ATMega1284P – is a low-cost, fully loaded entry-level printer with a heated bed, comprehensive management software and print failure recovery.

According to the Phoenix crew, the 3D printer emphasizes the software side of things, as it helps Makers manage filament and group STL files into logical groups. Perhaps most importantly, the device offers a unique feature: print recovery mode.

“3D printers are still susceptible to many flaws, including filament tangles and nozzle jams. Should something go wrong in the middle of your 12 hour print, you used to have to throw it in the trash and start over,” the Phoenix 3D printer cew explained in a recent Kickstarter post.

“With our software, we allow you to pause the print, fix your tangled filament or clogged nozzle, rewind the print to the point of failure, and try again. Our software also works directly with our iOS mobile app (Android version forthcoming).”

The Phoenix 3D printer also differs from other units in terms of its Z Axis, as it swaps the screw for a belt, facilitating optimized walls and edges without a wobble pattern.

Additional key specs include:

  • Build Area: 240 x 215 x 200 millimeters
  • Resolution: 0.1mm all around
  • 12-volt, 40-watt heater 0.35mm brass nozzle
  • Heated build platform, which means you can print with ABS!
  • 12-volt, 20-amp, 240-watt power supply
  • Integrated filament spool holder. No need to buy special or proprietary cartridges!
  • Adjustable Z-axis cutoff switch for reliable print starts

    This software looks really nice and it also has the multi specifications of it to have the best productive results with the perfections. The extended key features are really awesome to pause and rewind the positions to reduce the mistakes and wastages of the material.
