After a lot of months of work we are presenting right now the HackerBot at MakerFaire in Rome.
We have put a lot of effort in this printer and we’ve designed to be very versatile and strong. The head can get up to four heads and in this first release we have two bowden extruders (0,5mm and 0,35mm) and one drill.
The structure is all in aluminum with high quality profiles. We got also an heat bed and plexy covers on all the sides. The miss right now is a cover for the upside but we’re working on it.
The speed are quite impressive and the dual extruder works nice. We have done also some experiments on support material (HIPS) dissolved in the tasty lemonene.
