SpiderBot Delta 3D Printer

Design a part for 3D printing, some advises...

Written by Ph. Boichut on Thursday, 30 April 2015
The FFF (Fused Filament Fabrication) 3D printing technology used in SpiderBot is a great tool for design offices and engineering companies
- it accelerates the design process
- it improves product quality by enabling a more iterative design and more thorough design evaluations (We designed part in just a few days that would have otherwise taken weeks, if we didn't have a SpiderBot)
- it helps reduce design costs
But the technology is far from magical and not everything can be printed, at least without a slight adaptation of parts...

PEI Print Bed, if the part stick too well on it...

Written by Ph. Boichut on Tuesday, 07 April 2015

Objects sticking too well to your print bed? We have just the trick to help you out. Sometimes, when the printer is not well calibrated (happens mainly if the Z_Max_Length is slightly too long or the KISSlicer parameter "Bed Roughness" to high ) or when the printed part has a very large area in direct contact with the print bed, it can be diffcult to take off the part. 

RapidPro 2015, why do we print in ABS ?

Written by Ph. Boichut on Friday, 06 March 2015

We are back from RapidPro 2015...

I am impressed by the number of people we have seen and that have shown a great interest in our 3D Printer, the SpiderBot. On a personal note, I would like to thank the hundreds of visitors who stopped at our booth, to talk, ask question and express their interest.

One of the things that surprised me was that a lot of visitors were wondering why we were printing in ABS !
It would seem that not many people are aware that PLA can not be used beyond 55/60°C and the parts soften and deform from this temperature onward.
For this reason, I would like to share some more of the technical reason behind this choice...

SpiderBot V2.0 What's new?

Written by Ph. Boichut on Friday, 05 December 2014

We are proud to reveal the V2.0, a major update of the SpiderBot 3D Printer. The 2.0 is not just another version number increment but also signifies the release of the dual extruder option (we skipped 1.9 just so it sounds better and matches the dual extruder release, haha!). Furthermore it includes many structural improvements and takes into account most of remarks and feedback from our customers around the world.

Ordering and availibility

The SpiderBot V2.0 will be available from the first of January 2015. As a consequence, from this moment onward, we would like to inform you that the V1.8 SpiderBot can no longer be ordered, we are accepting pre orders for the SpiderBot V2.0.

SpiderBot V1.8 What's new?

Written by on Thursday, 09 October 2014

We are proud to reveal the V1.8 incremental update of the SpiderBot 3D Printer. This update contains a new possible optional upgrade, improved design and wiring improvements aimed to make any newly bought printers upgrade compatible with two large updates coming in the near future.

- Improved design of the Thermo Couple for both single and dual head extruders.
- 360°C  Thermo Couple Option.
- Pre-wiring for Dual Head.
- Pre-wiring for Autonomous Printing Upgrade.
