Createbot S3 R3D is a do-it-yourself FDM 3D printer kit. It ships flat-pack with the main components already assembled. Its setup is really quick and easy. In just three steps, you will get it up and running. The printer is engineered with precision components and thoughtful features, which make it reliable and highly accurate. Stable and robust, its frame is composed of CNC-machined aluminum alloy profiles.
The S3 R3D printer is simple to use. It features a print recovery system that lets you restart a print job in case of a power outage or accidental shutdown. It prints at 100 microns granting high precision of the final parts and a clean surface finish. A rolling filament feeder streamlines material loading also making for a smoother extrusion process. The dual Z-axis lead screws enable fast and stable movement. The glass print bed is fixed using specifically-designed clips for easier placement and higher stability. It facilitates print removal.
This FDM 3D printer kit is ideal for designers, makers, hobbyists, and beginners. It has been used to produce a variety of 3D models, such as buildings, functional parts, bolts, nuts, and many others. Continue reading our review.
Createbot S3 is an FDM 3D printer that can print layers at 100 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.
The Createbot S3 comes with a single nozzle of 0.4 mm in diameter, which gives you the best balance between speed and detail.
The print head runs on rods with linear bearings, making the design more simple, lightweight and effective, all characteristics that are desirable in a 3D printer.
Createbot S3 prints with PLA, ABS, PETG, PVA, TPU, HIPS, and other materials.
The extruder module comes with a dual-fan cooling system for printing with PLA-type materials. By cooling the model down, it reduces warping, stringing and, generally, makes for higher quality prints.
The Createbot S3 prints with any type of 1.75 mm filament, providing you with a wide choice of materials.
The build area of inches 12.4 x 11.8 x 16.3 (315 x 300 x 415 mm) lets you print medium-to-large parts in one go.
The Createbot S3 can be controlled via a standalone control box.
You can print your 3D files from a computer via an SD card or USB cable.
The printer works with the most common 3D model formats (STL, OBJ, and GCODE). It is compatible with Cura, Slic3r, Simplify3D, and Repetier-host software. The R3D proprietary software runs on Microsoft Windows and Linux operating systems.
