CraftBot XL is a metal frame, big printer. It is ideal for any user in search of an outstanding build volume, fine movements, and good print quality. It comes mostly assembled, you need to put just some components in place and you’re done. The printer is easy-to-use and shows a remarkable build quality. It features a detachable, heated build plate, improved bearings for quiet and accurate operation, four swappable nozzles, and a dedicated App to remotely control the printing process. It includes some smart features, including pause & resume, Wi-Fi connectivity, and a user-friendly touchscreen. The graphic interface and the dedicated Apps give you access to a variety of settings to fine-tune the printer on the fly, such as heat parameters, fan speed, and more. Its printing capability and rugged design make it ideal for home and classroom environments as well as for rapid prototyping and small scale production. Let’s review its specs.
Just to make an example, the Hungarian rock band ‘Anna and the Barbies’ has used the printer to create exclusive, custom costumes without limiting their imagination. Look at the pics to get a better idea of CraftBot XL’s printing capabilities.
The CraftBot XL is an FDM 3D printer that can print layers at 50 microns. This way you can produce parts with smooth exterior surfaces. The pause and resume option prevents printing failures in case of power outages or filament run-out.
Just notice how accurate and clean is this Asus ROG logo cover for Corsair 120mm fan. It shines.

The CraftBot XL comes with a kit of 4 MK8 copper nozzles of 0.25, 0.4, 0.6 and 0.8 mm in diameter. You can choose the size that best fits your design needs. For faster prints, you might opt for a 0.8 mm nozzle, while for more accurate, fine details the 0.25 nozzle will be the best solution.
Have a look at the model below. As you can see, it shows a decent amount of details and fairly clean surfaces.

The print head runs on rails, which makes printing reliable, fast and precise. The linear rails and the improved bearings enable quieter operation and higher accuracy.
CraftBot XL prints with PLA, ABS, HIPS, PETG and other materials.
The extruder temperature ranges from 180 to 260°C. It comes with three fans for printing with PLA-type materials. By cooling the model down, it reduces warping, stringing and, generally, makes for higher quality prints, as in the case of this complex geometry.

CraftBot XL 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 CraftBot XL prints with 1.75 mm filament, providing you with a wide choice of materials and more design possibilities.
The build area of 12 x 8 x 17 inches (300 x 200 x 440 mm) lets you print almost every object with fewer joins or no joins at all.

You can control the printer by connecting your PC via USB cable or you can operate it directly through the built-in, color LCD touchscreen. Its intuitive and well-organized menu keeps you constantly updated about the printing process. A dedicated App for both iOS and Android devices will let you comfortably start, pause and resume prints and change settings whenever you want. You can even launch your print using the pen drive packed in the box.
3D models can be printed from computer via USB cable, USB pen drive and WiFi.
The printer works with the in-house CraftWare software, a free-to-download slicer that offers the possibility to adjust the printing settings to your liking. It lets you import 3D models in OBJ, STL, and CWPRJ formats. You will be able to print in three simple steps: load the model > slice it > print. The software is available for Windows 7 and above, OS X and Linux.
