RepRapPro debuts the Huxley Duo

RepRapPro has debuted a new Atmel SAM3X8E ARM Cortex-M3 based 3D printer kit, which is the offspring of its successful predecessor, the Huxley.

RepRap1

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.

  • 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

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. If you already have access to a 3D printer and wish to print your own parts, you can save a few bucks by checking out the components page here.
