The MakiBox A6 HT has been designed to be the best of both worlds, affordable and dependable. It comes with a our heated stainless steel printing bed that allows for printing ABS and other materials without any additional preparation. All MakiBox kits come partially assembled. They have been designed to be more simple with less parts and very little configuration. Even though it is inexpensive, it contains some impressive technology. The MakiBox hot end (the part that makes the plastic hot) is the most compact and efficient in the market today. This makes it possible to make this printer small but with a large output. The heated bed allows for printing with ABS and other materails without the typical additional Kaption, perfboard, or rafts required by other printers. Parts come out flat and well laminated. Even though the MakiBox A6 is one quarter the size or less than most 3D printers on the market, it prints out parts as large as 110mm x 150mm x 90mm (X,Y,Z). This is large enough for phone cases and similar sized objects. This MakiBox A6 HT uses PLA, ABS, or other 1.75mm filament, which can be found in most markets or purchased from MakiBox.com.
