Arcadia, California startup SmartBox Lab has introduced the latest affordable FFF 3D printer to hit the market, having recently made its Kickstarter debut.

The RepRap-based printer, which features a build envelope of 200 x 200 x 180mm, is equipped with an easy-to-use LCD screen, an SD card slot, an extrusion nozzle measuring 0.4mm in diameter, as well as an integrated aluminum frame. SmartBox’s convenient battery was designed to eradicate any possibility of the printer shutting down during a power outage, meaning no more fretting over losing that project after countless hours of hard work!

“SmartBox 3D printer applies the most stable XYZ structure. Through optimal design, its stability and durability has been strengthened based on its original advantage, and its accuracy has been enhanced by multi-aspect details,” a company rep writes.

An ATmega1284P MCU lies at the heart of the operation, which is controlled by Sprinter, Marlin, and Repetier firmware.

Currently seeking $6,000 on Kickstarter, the SmartBox team has already garnered well over its initial asking goal. Priced at $199 for the kit and $299 for the fully-assembled version, the machines are expected to begin shipping in June 2015. Interested in learning more?
