The Dremel Idea Builder 3D40 3D printer allows you to build in 3D, turning your ideas into reality. The 3D Idea Builder utilises Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) to extrude layers of PLA plastic on top of one another until an object is created, unlike regular printing where ink is put onto a flat surface.
The Dremel Idea Builder 3D40 3D printer is easy to set up and has some terrific features; from un-boxing to first printing takes less than 30 minutes, virtually plug in and go. It has a good-sized print area and if you run out of filament halfway through a job, the 3D40 3D printer automatically pauses to allow you to load more filament before continuing. Another great feature is the semi-automatic levelling for the bed, making this operation quick and straightforward. The 3D40 has a 3½" full-colour touch screen, with simple and intuitive commands.
The Dremel Idea Builder 3D40 3D printer allows you to print remotely via wifi or alternatively you can print from a USB stick. The touch screen shows a preview of your chosen model before you commence printing. Once closed the door keeps out dust and prying fingers. This fully enclosed space stabilises the temperature, while the machine quietly prints your model. The ability to print over wifi is especially useful allowing you to position the printer wherever is convenient.
You can keep track of the printer’s progress remotely too; it reports temperature, percentage completion, time remaining and layer number. Once the print is running, you can even turn off your laptop or lose the wireless connection, as the print is fully downloaded to the printer's internal 4GB memory before printing begins.
This 3D printer includes everything for you to get started with creating your 3D models. The 3D40 includes a 162m roll of white PLA filament, a Quick Start Guide, USB cable, power cable, object removal tool, cleaning tool, SD card, spool lock, instruction manual, build tape and levelling sheet.
