The Velleman K8400 "Vertex" 3D Printer Kit is the next generation printer from Velleman. It is an easy-to-assemble machine that offers standard and optional features that rival those of printers costing two to three times as much. High precision 3D prints can be made thanks to the 1.75mm filament and 0.05mm layer resolution. This kit builds a ready to run printer that can be assembled in a few hours over several evenings or weekends.

DUAL EXTRUDER CAPABLE with the optional extruder head assembly (available soon!). Print 2 colors at the same time! Comes standard with an LCD screen and SD-Card reader for standalone printing! Works will all common and freely available open source 3D printer software packages (octoprint, repetier, cura, etc). This printer prints GCODE files - nearly any 3D model file type can be converted to GCODE using SLIC3R or CURA, etc.

The build volume is: 180 x 200 x 190 mm (7" x 7.8" x 7.5") and the print resolution is 0.05 mm. The maximum temperature is 270°C, and the printer can print PLA and ABS, as well as other plastics.
