RepRapPro has debuted a new Atmel SAM3X8E ARM Cortex-M3 based 3D printer kit, which is the offspring of its successful predecessor, the Huxley.
Aptly dubbed the Huxley Duo, notable features of the open-source device include an ethernet network connection for control via web interfaces, a Z-probe for automated bed plane compensation, shielded electronics, pre-crimped wiring looms (meaning no more soldering necessary), as well as its new all-metal, dual-nozzle ready hotend.
Though the Huxley Duo is one of the smallest 3D printers available in terms of its weight and footprint, its build volume is comparatively quite large.
Key specifications of the portable and easy-to-assemble machine:
- Build Envelope: 138x140x95mm
- Printer Size: 260x280x280mm
- Filament Type/Size: ABS, PLA, 1.75mm diameter
- Build Surface: PCB-heated bed
- Nozzle Size: 0.5mm
- Layer Accuracy: 0.1mm
- Resolution: 0.0125mm
- Building speed: 1,800 mm/min
- Extruder speed: 12,000 mm/min
Good news for those interested in the recently-unveiled Huxley Duo! The printers — which comes in five colors ranging from white to green — are now available on RepRapPro website for just over $450 with the plastic parts already printed.
