Type A Machines Series 1 Pro 3D Printer

Product ID: 2412


Built to last and better than ever. The Series 1 Pro 3D printers from Type A Machines offer durability, modularity and one of the largest build volumes in their class.

Featuring a streamlined aluminum and acrylic body, a glass build surface and a precision laser cut CNC folded metal chassis, the Series 1 Pro pushes the envelope in desktop 3D printing by matching a class leading one cubic foot of build volume with further improvements to the easy bed-leveling system and revolutionary interface for network 3D printing.

Users can now get their hands on easy in-the-field upgrades including the introduction of embedded wifi connectivity, a heated glass bed and an improved extruder with multi-material support.

The all-aluminum extruder is a game changer. The single piece melt path reduces clogging, allows for better temperature and print control, and works with a wider variety of printing materials, including PLA, High Carbon PLA and PET. It's easy to clean and easy to replace, so you're printing more and troubleshooting less.

The Series 1 Pro is also ready to connect to a home network right out of the box. Using the free Meshmixer application you can print with just one-click.

Note: As of Tuesday, March 8th 2016, we are now carrying the upgraded version of the Series 1 3D printer: The Series 1 Pro! Here are the new features:
