Our 3D Printers

Prusa i3-MK3S+/MK4/XL

Prusa is the workhorse of our 3D Printer collection. It is reliable, fast, and prints with a variety of materials. The Prusa MK3/MK4 is able to print objects up to 8x8x8″, with the XL printing up to 5 colors at per print at 14x14x14″. The Studio has a large selection of colors to choose from.

Fees: 5¢ per gram


Bambu Labs P1P/ X1 Carbon

The Bambu Labs brand printers offer a more budget friendly alternative to the Prusa MK4/XL, able to print in multicolor with the AMS unit, and still retains very high speeds thanks to its Core XY design.

Fees: 5¢ per gram


FormLabs Form 2

Unique among our 3D printers, this technology uses liquid resin to create objects. This printer is excellent for prototyping because of the resolution lasers can produce. Resin prints are also incredibly durable once cured. Print times are generally slower than a traditional filament printer, but a higher level of detail is the result. Liquid Resin is available in white, grey or black only.

Fees: 5¢ per milliliter
