The Craftbot 3 is a professional FDM 3D printer used by teams like the Arrabona Racing Team. It features a sturdy metal frame, an all-metal hotend. It is equipped with an independent dual extrusion system, one of the reasons why it was rated among the best dual 3D printers by All3DP.

What’s so special? We all know the glory of printing with two colors or using a water-soluble material to easily remove supports, but how about printing two separate models at the same time? This is what the Craftbot 3 enables us to do. Watch it live:

 

            

Another feat is the new filament monitoring system which can independently troubleshoot problems such as filament jams, and will notify the user if a human intervention is necessary. Continue reading for the full review.

Print quality

The Craftbot 3 is an FDM 3D printer that can print layers at 50 microns. The surface finish is not as smooth as you get with the more expensive printers, but is more than enough for prototyping and household use. For example, see this model of a floating cup. While you may see some layering, the print still looks amazing!

The Craftbot 3 has a 0.25 mm nozzle, allowing for prints with very fine detail. For example, see this miniature Frozen Castle. The small objects such as the staircase are well made:

The printer body is an all-steel construction. It's built like a tank. The print head runs on rails. This makes printing reliable, fast and precise.

Last but not least, the new motor control makes printing quieter than ever.

 

Materials

Craftbot 3 prints with PLA, ABS, PET-G, Nylon, TPU, PVA, PP, PC, Woodfill, Metalfill and other materials.

Such quality printing is possible thanks to the extruder’s fan. By cooling the model down, it reduces warping, stringing and, generally, makes for higher quality prints.

The Craftbot 3 has a heated print bed, which makes it suitable for printing with ABS-type materials. To ensure high reproducibility, we recommend installing an enclosed print chamber.

This way the print quality would not be affected by temperature fluctuations as a result of drafts and other factors.

The printer has a dual extrusion system. To assess its quality observe the print below:

In many dual extrusion systems filament from one extruder might drip onto your model in places where you never wanted them. To prevent this, the Craftbot’s extruders are equipped with silicone discs that wipe the nozzles clean while the print heads are changing. This ensures that excess filament material doesn’t muddle up the surface of your print. 

The Craftbot 3 prints with 1.75 mm filament, providing you with a wide choice of materials.

The build area of 14.7 x 9.8 x 9.8 inches (374 x 250 x 250 mm) lets you print just about anything. For example, see this 3D printed Saturn V and gantry:

The model has approximately 2250 parts and is 235 cm in height. Printed on Craftbot 2 and Craftbot 3, it took around 1260 hours, 22.36 kg of filament and 14 months of hard work to complete.
 

Printer controls

The printer is controlled via PC or the built-in LCD interface.

3D models can be printed from computer via Micro SD, Wi-Fi or USB. 

The printer software works with 3D models in .OBJ, .STL, .CWPRJ formats, and is available for Windows. Mac OS X и Linux users will need to use a “virtual machine” or other software.
