Since it first came out, 3D printing became very popular. Now, this sophisticated technology is quickly becoming more accessible to users. Dremel’s goal is to simplify the entire 3D printing experience and with their 3D Idea Builder you can get an easy-to-use 3D printer for your home.
You can use it to build anything you need, from toys and household objects to art and creative projects. This 3D printer is a size of a smaller microwave and weighs a bit more than 19 pounds. Unlike other 3D printers, this one has a pre-installed extruder. That makes it much simpler to use since you don’t have to install it. The extruder can reach a temperature of up to 397°F and deposit a 4-mm thick layer.
Dremel 3D Idea Builder is UL Certified and fully enclosed for protected building, keeping out the dust and regulating the temperature. It has an active cooling fan that prevents warping of objects that are being built. It’s really quiet and keeps noise to a minimum.
We already mentioned how easy it is to use it. There’s a software you use to pick models, or you can use one of your designs. Once you choose the one you’d like to build, just upload the model through the SD card into the builder and watch how it’s being made. There’s a full-color touchscreen on the printer where you can also choose the models without turning on your computer. This screen allows you to check out the progress, start, pause and stop the building.
Dremel 3D Idea Builder uses Dremel PLA filament that’s specifically designed for this 3D printer. PLA is a thermal plastic that softens and melts when it’s heated and will produce a high-quality object. It’s plant-based, recyclable and comes in 10 colors. With one spool, you can get around 36 small models, 14 medium or 3 large ones.
Dremel offers many 3D models for you to pick and lets you know how long each one takes to make. All the models are divided into categories and you can submit or request a model on their website.
