LEGO 3d Print: PrintABrick

The action you just performed triggered the security solution. Just feed it the plans for something and it will dutifully spit it out for you as a real, tangible product.

So as long as the quality of the print is up to scratch, a small volume shouldn’t matter. If a printed brick does not stand up to repeated use you can simply print another. This comes with both advantages and disadvantages.

I like open printers like this because they take up less space.On the other hand, your in-process build isn’t protected in any way at all. So if the cat or an errant child gets in the way of things, you’ll have to start all over again. This is clearly a printer that punches above its weight when it comes to print quality.

You didn’t buy a complete printer, but received a box of parts that you then had to assemble into a working printer. Invariably, these looked pretty rough, as if they’d been made in someone’s garage – which was an accurate assessment, given that this is where most were made. Of all the mini printers here this one is probably the least mini, but it competes in price.

It may not be the most elegant and polished product here, but according to the people who have actually bought one, it works very well indeed, especially when it comes to the quality of the actual prints. As sometimes happens with products like these, quality issues can arise. Since the printer is not fully assembled before being boxed up, there is no way to test it. Nonetheless, this printer looks funky and does a great job. So, however, do other printers in this price class. The real question of whether this is the printer for you hinges on how much the idea of building it yourself appeals to you. This printer can also be quite fast, if you’re willing to take more risk of a print failing or of the quality being a little rough. It tops out at 80mm per second, which is good for this price class.

You can choose between a rather adult orange color and a more child-friendly blend of red, green, blue, and yellow. There’s actually a system inside the filament that prevents the printer from working with third-party material. So if you want to use cheap third-party material, you can’t use this printer. For one thing, usage is tracked precisely and you’ll know when the machine will run out. If you can stomach the premium price for the filament, this is a great little printer to get you started. It is the most expensive printer in this group, but it’s still in the lower range for this type of technology.

I suspect the price is a little higher than that of the competition. It’s straddles the line between cheap and cheerful printers and those premium printers only hardcore fans would buy.
