The Velleman K8200 3D printer uses a single extruder designed for 3.00 mm filament, capable of printing using ABS and PLA. ABS provides a tougher and stronger finish but requires a higher temperature, around 230 Celsius, which makes it great for heat resistant parts. PLA is slightly flexible and requires a much lower temperature, around 210 Celsius, it is also non-toxic; it is also less prone to warping when printing. There are a variety of filament materials, finishes and colours available allowing you to create your 3D models exactly how you want them.
How easy is this 3D printer to set up and use?
The printer comes pre-assembled with a reel of filament making it ready to use straight out of the box. The Velleman K8200 3D printer uses the Repetier software which is designed to make 3D printing simple and straightforward. Simply import your .stl CAD files to the printer to start bringing your creations to life.
Where can I find 3D printing resources?
3D printing allows you to design your own creations or use designs created by others. There are plenty of resources available to help you make the most of this tech. Free software such AutoDesk 123D Design allows you to make your own model as simple or as detailed as you like. (http://www.123dapp.com/design)
Thingiverse also has a large collection of 3D models that you can download and print for free. (http://www.thingiverse.com)
