RS Components has introduced a more advanced model of its RS brand IdeaWerk 3D printer. The RS IdeaWerk Pro (£590), is capable of handling multiple types of filaments, including flexible, PLA, ABS, PA/NYLON, PC, HIPS and PVA.
The RS IdeaWerk Pro has many features in common with the RS IdeaWerk FDM 3D printer, which is already selling at a reduced price of £490. These features include: build volume of 150 x 150 x 140mm; minimum layer resolution of 0.18mm; and maximum print speed of 30mm3 per hour.
In addition to offering multiple filament options, including PLA, the RS IdeaWerk Pro features a heated bed that can handle 0 to 120°C and high-temperature extrusion up to 300°C. Additional capabilities, available via the product’s touchscreen, include: temperature adjustment of extruder and heated bed; control of filament (in/out) and XYZ-axis movement; progress and status display; and temperature unit selection.
The printer can be used in either online or offline mode with connectivity via SD Card or USB. It is compatible with Mac OS and Windows OS versions including XP, Vista, 7 and 8/8.1, with no additional software or accessories necessary.
