Dremel 3D Printer


Recommended Posts

Posted · Dremel 3D Printer

while surfing on internet I came across this printer and I asked myself, "why a great company like Dremel has need to produce this low technology 3D printer?"

For me is marketing, because Dremel is synonymous of self constructed things and pretend of selling an 3D printer, whatever it is, leads one to think that the company is in step with the times.

And what do you think about it?

    Well, the printer is about a year behind the times, supports only PLA with a smallish build volume and low temperatures, and isn't actually available yet from any of the stated resellers, unless a search for "dremel 3d" misses it somehow. Oh yeah, and the "5-star" "reviews" do not actually exist.

    Pure pre-release hype at this point, and for a behind-the-times product at that.

    Perfect? Lots of luck with that when you're talking with their call center in India about using any other brand of PLA, or find that 230C maximum doesn't work...

    dremel will either be totally put off with their first experiences with this printer... OR.. will learn a lot fast and come back with something better soon... hopefully the second of course...
