Choco 3Drag for printing of three-dimensional shapes with chocolate


3D printer to print objects of maximum size of 20 x 20 x 20 cm using ABS or PLA 3mm wires. Extremely fast and precise even in prints at higher speeds. Compatible with all free software and firmware RepRap, lets you create items in plastic of any kind. Made of aluminum profiles, easy to mount. Designed and engineered to give lightness and stiffness for the suppression of vibrations and unwanted resonance. The printer uses the X / Y for printing plane and Z for the cart. This particular configuration allows to simplify the extrusion system which no longer have to move on a horizontal axis, is simply fixed to the structure that moves along the Z axis The measurements have been studied to make the printer compact and a low center of gravity, aligned with the two belts. The support for the printing plate is designed to accommodate a “tile” of vetronite which combines a good adhesion with the PLA with considerable dimensional stability. Heated plate included.
