The FULCRUM MINIBOT 1.0 3D printer comes fully assembled. The kit, in addition to the device, includes a probe with resin, protective equipment – gloves and a mask, disposable funnels for cleaning the resin, a replacement film for the bath, a set of keys and a plastic spatula.
You can control the device using the touch screen. On the right panel, at the bottom, there is a power button and a USB connector for a flash drive.
Software, materials and printing
Before starting work, it is necessary to perform calibration in manual mode. This procedure takes 5-7 minutes. You will need to recalibrate if you encounter printing problems.
The manufacturer recommends monitoring the cleanliness of the LCD screen and the PTFE film at the bottom of the bath. Dust should be removed carefully so as not to damage the surface – use a cloth dampened with isopropyl alcohol.
Preparation of the model is carried out using a slicer, which can be installed from a complete flash drive or downloaded on the official website of the company.
The finished model is saved in the FULCRUM MINIBOT 1.0 internal format, and printing is carried out directly from the TF flash drive.
If you are a beginner 3D printer, then a working volume of 75x70x70 millimeters will be enough, for most everyday tasks more is not needed.
Affordable price, ease of operation and maintenance, high-quality prints – FULCRUM MINIBOT 1.0 is one of the best solutions in the market where photopolymer printers cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.
But 3D printing enthusiasts who would like to learn the basics of photopolymer printing and use this printer in everyday life are unlikely to find anything more interesting.
