Bring your ideas to life with 3D printing
The Dremel Idea Builder is one of the easiest 3D printers to start using with a minimal amount of fuss and features a maximum build size of 23 x 15 x 14 cm. Build something creative, something functional or something personalised. Replace a broken part or invent a gadget that makes your everyday life easier.

How easy is this 3D printer to set up and use?
Start building in minutes! The Dremel Idea Builder comes fully assembled - simply plug in your printer and you're ready to build. A full 500g white PLA filament is included, whilst additional 500g filaments can be purchased here. Please note, the Dremel Idea Builder is only suitable for use with PLA filaments, and only Dremel filaments should be used with this device. Bright LED lights within the housing enable optimal viewing of the build platform at all times.

What software is included?
The Dremel Idea Builder requires software to be downloaded from the manufacturer's website. As well as Dremel's .G3D file format, .STL file types are also supported. A number of example models are pre-programmed in to the printer to enable you to start building your first creation straight away. The Dremel Idea Builder also supports SD cards up to 32GB in size, so you can download build files using your PC while your printer is busy creating your next masterpiece.

How easy is it to maintain?
The enclosed printing area protects the users from the high temperature of the print nozzle. The Dremel Idea Builder comes pre-calibrated from the factory. A large number of tutorial videos covering maintenance and use of the printer are provided on the MaplinTV YouTube website.
