BadPrinter 2 is an ATmega2560 powered 3D printer

Italy-based Bad Devices has recently launched its latest 3D printer, the BadPrinter 2, which is based on an Atmel ATmega2560 microcontroller (MCU).


As its unique, eye-catching name suggests, this gadget is truly bad to the bone! Powered by a Megatronics v3.0 motherboard (ATmega2560), the printer can create objects 226 x 228 x 210mm in size, while its printheads are encased in a black steel structure. With dual independent extruders, the machine is equipped to handle print speeds up to 150mm/s, while its 0.4mm nozzle is capable of printing layers up to 50 microns in thickness. It also includes a quickly removable 4mm heated glass bed and an enclosed working area specifically made for ABS plastic.


The company has chosen to create its own path by taking its high-quality 3D printer directly to market, forgoing a crowdfunding campaign like many of its competitors.


To demonstrate its dual-color functionality, the Bad Devices team captured the megaAVR powered device printing a soccer ball.

Those wishing to learn more about the 3D printer can head over to its official page or download its spec sheet here.
