The Dremel 3D45 is a personal FDM 3D printer mostly used by hobbyists and students. This machine offers the right balance between accessibility, reliability, and quality, which makes it perfect for educational purposes. It ships pre-assembled and is really simple to set up and use. It can print with either proprietary materials, delivering excellent print quality, and third party ones for more design flexibility. It has been built to ensure safe use and high performance. The removable, heated bed and the full enclosure make it suitable for high-temperature printing. Special carbon filters reduce toxic emissions and bad odors. Thanks to its design, the machine is free from harm and burn risks. You can always have an eye on the printing progress through the transparent door and lid or via the onboard camera. The printer comes with a semi-automated bed leveling based on a two-point system that streamlines the calibration process. The printer has been used to print a variety of functional and leisure parts. Read the review for additional info.
A 3D printing enthusiast used the Dremel 3D45 to print a set of connectors to build up a wooden chair. The machine has been able to reproduce the dimensions needed for the models to snap with the wooden parts tightly.
This G-clamp model from Thingiverse.com turned out really good. Thanks to its dimensional stability, it works perfectly.
The Dremel 3D45 can print at 50 microns. This allows you to produce smooth models like the ones pictured below. The quality design and the performance bed ensure optimal results with high-temp materials. Loading the filaments is as easy as 1-2-3 and reduces the risk of filament jams. The chipped spools automatically adjust the printing settings according to the material used ensuring the best achievable results.
When calibrating the platform, the 4.5-inch IPS touchscreen shows step-by-step instructions to streamline the process. The correct leveling allows for accurate prints.
The Dremel 3D45 is equipped with a standard 0.4 mm nozzle. Its diameter provides the right balance between material feeding speed and level of detail.
The print head runs on rods with linear bearings.
Dremel 3D45 prints with a variety of standard and functional materials, including Nylon, EcoABS, PLA, and other materials.
The extruder comes with a fan for printing with PLA-type materials reducing the risk of warping.
The Dremel 3D45 has a heated print bed and a closed print chamber. The enclosure keeps the interior temperature stable and lets you reliably print with ABS-type materials.
The Dremel 3D45 prints with both branded and generic filaments. In order to get the maximum quality, it is recommended to use proprietary materials. The own-brand spools ensure high-resolution prints, as all the branded materials go through a strict quality assurance process. In addition, as soon as the proprietary material is loaded, an RFID reader promptly detects the filament type and sets the printing parameters accordingly.
The build area of the printer is 10 x 6.1 x 6.7 inches (255 x 155 x 170 mm), it lets you print a variety of models, even a flying Chinese dragon with movable parts.

The fitted, 5-inch, full-color IPS touch screen lets you easily operate the printer via an intuitive and responsive interface. Still, the in-house slicer Dremel Print Cloud allows for remote monitoring and control.
3D models can be printed from computer via Wi-Fi, USB, and Ethernet. You can monitor the process remotely via the printer’s built-in camera.
Besides the cloud-based slicer, the printer also works with the self-developed Dremel DigiLab software. Based on the open-source, original Cura, the program can slice a variety of 3D model formats. It is available for both Windows and Mac OS.
