Ever since its launch the Snapmaker has been in the spotlight. This machine deeply varies from any other 3D printer. The device features three interchangeable modules that can be set via the X-axis rail. Besides 3D printing the Snapmaker is capable of CNC milling and laser engraving. This multifunctionality helped it win the hearts of 3D enthusiasts all over the world.
Although having multiple modes may sound tricky, the Snapmaker offers almost effortless transition between functions and high performance.
For example, this wonderful mask was created with the Snapmaker. All the capabilities of the machine have been put to work to create this beautiful model.
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. 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. To see why it’s important, have a look at the examples below: The small nozzle size enables the machine to produce highly detailed models.
The printer is an all-steel construction. It's incredibly rigid. The print head runs on rails. This makes printing reliable, fast and precise.
Beyond printing, the Snapmaker will amaze with near-perfect laser engraving. Check out these 10 cm coasters. The inspiration for these was taken from a galaxy far, far away.

Not to mention its CNC carving capabilities:
Snapmaker can work with PLA, ABS, Wood, Flex and other materials.
This model below was printed on the Snapmaker with 0.1mm layers and with 15% infill in White Snapmaker PLA.

The Snapmaker has a heated print bed, which makes it suitable for printing with ABS-type materials.
To ensure reliability it is recommended to install an enclosed print chamber. This is done so that temperature fluctuations didn’t affect the quality of the model in question.
The Snapmaker prints with 1.75 mm filament, providing you with a wide choice of materials.
Laser engraving and cutting can be applied to fabric, leather, plywood and acrylic surfaces, whilst with CNC carving you can work with hardwood, PCB, acrylic, POM, carbon fiber sheet, and many more materials. Snapmaker surpasses the limits of a traditional FDM 3D printer, offering you infinite possibilities for your next creative project.
The build area of 4.9 x 4.9 x 4.9 inches (125 x 125 x 125 mm). If that is not enough for you, you can print models in parts and then assemble them together as in the picture below:

The printer is controlled via PC or the touchscreen.
3D models can be printed from computer via USB Disk, USB Cable and Wi-Fi.
The machine is compatible with the Snapmaker software and works with 3D models in STL and OBJ formats. The software is available for Mac OS X, Windows. Linux users will have to install a virtual machine or other software.
For some items, package content may change. In case of any questions, please get in touch.
Snapmaker is available in gray color.
