It features an all-metal, modular design that supports three different interchangeable modules for FDM 3D printing, CNC carving, and engraving. It can produce and customize a variety of products always delivering high-precision results. It is a save spacing all-in-one solution for makers, tinkerers, hobbyists, educators and more. Due to its affordability, it has even been awarded the best budget all-in-one 3D printer of Spring 2019 by All3DP.
Swapping from a tool head to another onto the X-axis rail is effortless. Also, operating the device is really simple. It includes a handheld, color capacitive touchscreen that streamlines the print management process. It comes with a proprietary software for optimum performance, Snapmaker3D. It has been used to create various products, including masks, toys, and more. Read the review to find out more.
For example, it has been used to realize this wonderful mask. Its multiple capabilities allow the creation of complex models hassle-free.
The device accomplishes all of its functions perfectly. Look at this 3D printed chess board, all the engravings were made with the Snapmaker.

The Snapmaker is an FDM 3D printer that can print layers at 50 microns. This way you can produce parts with smooth exterior surfaces. The all-metal structure ensures high stability and precision. These Margo series models were printed by a Swedish enthusiast. It took a considerable amount of time and effort but the result turned out great.

The Snapmaker is equipped with a 0.4 mm nozzle. It allows printing 3D models with an acceptable level of detail at a good print speed.
The printer is entirely made of metal. Its aluminum case is incredibly rigid. The print head runs on rails. This makes printing reliable, fast and precise.
The Snapmaker uses a class 3B laser with a wavelength of 405 nm. It works with a power of up to 200 mW producing accurate and highly detailed outputs.
It will amaze you with near-perfect laser engraving. Check out these 10 cm coasters inspired by the Star Wars saga. They come from a galaxy far, far away, and look really good.

The Snapmaker has a heated print bed, which makes it suitable for printing with ABS-type materials. The bed can heat up to 80°.
To ensure reliability it is recommended to install an enclosed print chamber. In this way, temperature fluctuations will not affect the final quality of the printed.
The Snapmaker prints with 1.75 mm filament, providing you with a wide choice of materials.
The build area is 4.9 x 4.9 x 4.9 inches (125 x 125 x 125 mm). For producing larger products, you can print the model in parts and then assemble them together, just like in the example below:

The printer is controlled via a USB-tethered PC or via a handheld touchscreen.
3D models can be printed from a computer via USB Disk, USB Cable and Wi-Fi.
The machine is compatible with the Snapmaker3D software and works with 3D printing models in STL and OBJ formats. It also supports SVG, JPEG, PNG, DXF, DWG, and other formats for engraving and CNC milling.
The software is available for Mac OS X, Windows. Linux users will have to install a virtual machine or other software.
