The Type A Machines series 1 3D printer comes fully assembled, has an open frame and fabricates objects using (1.75mm) PLA thermoplastic filament, with a vertical resolution from 50 to 300 microns (0.05 to 0.3 mm).
A filament management system holds multiple filament spools and helps provide reliable feeding of filament into the extruder. The build surface adjusts at four corners for level calibration.
The printer is commanded through the integrated USB cable using G-code numerical control instructions. It can be used with 3D printer management software packages.
The frame is made of laser-cut engineering grade birch plywood. Chrome-plated precision ground steel rods with precision linear bearings help ensure precise movement. The size 17 and size 14 stepper motors are 1/16 micro stepping, and meet the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) standard ICS 16-2001.
