The D-Bot Core-XY is a personal FDM 3D printer kit. Based on the C-Bot design, this scalable device requires a bit of tinkering to be built. You have to purchase the various manufactured parts independently taking into consideration the official Bill of Materials available online. All the components are readily available through online retailers. Other parts can be produced on any other 3D printer. The dedicated documentation covers the assembly process from start to finish. You can find all the related information on the official Thingiverse page.

Unlike the original C-Bot, the D-bot shows a more stable construction and a larger print area. Its lead screws and Z motors have been moved forward in order to lift the print bed from its center of gravity, the XY endstop mountings have been relocated to facilitate homing, and some functional parts have been modified to improve the overall printing performances. Some minor changes to the printable parts and some extra accessories deliver more usability and user convenience. All these variations allow saving costs and reducing the bulk while ensuring rock-solid build quality. The D-Bot can also be easily upgraded and fully customized by adding extra components and features. For example, you can expand the build volume with only minor adjustments. The enthusiastic community has developed a library of remixed versions accessible for free on Thingiverse. The convenient price and limitless expandability of the machine make it ideal for makers, designers, hobbyists and students. It’s been used to print a wide variety of models, including toys, gadgets, functional parts and home accessories. Continue reading for a complete review.

Print quality

The D-Bot Core-XY 3D Printer can produce parts with smooth exterior surfaces. It comes with a E3D V6 all-metal hotend and a heated bed, which allow printing with PLA, ABS, Nylon and other filaments. The coreXY mechanism ensures high stability and reliability and doesn’t require particular calibration. Indeed, you might need to manually level the print bed occasionally. It can print at high speed providing very good outputs.

Materials

In its official version, the D-Bot Core-XY prints with PLA, ABS, and other materials. By upgrading its extrusion system and design, it can also handle other specialty filaments with ease.

Build volume

D-Bot Core-XY 3D Printer

The build area of 11.8 x 7.9 x 12.8 inches (300 x 200 x 325 mm) lets you print just about anything. If you need to, you might also slice your models in parts to create massive objects.

For example, one user 3D printed an ABS-made Power Loader. The print turned out perfect for its use.

 

Printer controls

The printer uses a Ramps Arduino setup, which is easy to use and low cost. In its default configuration, the machine operates via a PC connection to Repetier-Host software. Most of the Ramps kits include an LCD display for easy operating the printer. In some cases, they also have an SD slot for standalone printing.

3D models can be printed from computer via USB cable.

The printer works with any open-source, commercial software for 3D printing and slicing. There are several programs available for free, which run on any operating systems. You can choose the best option that matches your needs. The developer suggests the use of Slic3r.
