Transit goods insurance
If you wish to insure, it will cost $1 for every $100 value or PART THEREOF. In other words if your order is for $145.00 the insurance will be $2.00. This insurance covers goods DAMAGED in transit. We do not automatically insure unless you specify it during the checkout. If you don't select insurance you are NOT insured.
Trust us when we say this kit is for advanced users only. When a new technology emerges it often starts life in a user unfriendly fashion. It is new and hasn't had time to go through the various engineering iterations required to bring it up to a level non-boffins can use. But Jaycar customers are a different breed. The kind of people who have know-how, smarts, and passion to build a kit from a collection of wires, metal beams, cables, and circuit boards. So we bring to you this 3d printer kit.
Is 3d printing a fad or the future? Will amatuers at home replace mass scale manufacturing of items designed by professionals? Time will tell but there is something intrinsically fascinating about watching these devices print real 3d objects.
What is this 3d printer? It's a DIY kit that allows you to turn 3d digital files into real plastic objects you can hold and use.
How does it work? It builds up material one layer at a time to create a real object. Plastic filament is melted, then drawn in a very fine layer. It then builds another fine layer of plastic on top of this one, and then another, and another etc. It builds your creation from the bottom until you have an object ready to hold and use.
What can i make? Though you are limited to the size of the print area (200mm cube), there are thousands of things you could create. A few ideas • Prototypes for engineering/architeral projects • Replacement plastic parts in cars, toys, computers, and hundreds of other consumer electronic devices • Smartphone cases, tablet holders/stands • Models of anatomy for educational purposes • Cups, mugs, forks, spoons • Interconnecting Plastic Blocks • Enclosures for arduino, rasberry pi and other circuit boards or mini-pcs
What colours can i use? Red, blue, green and many more. However you can only use one colour at a time while printing. To do multi-colour creations print it in separate pieces then attach them together later.
How long does it take to print? The print time is proportional to the size and complexity of the creation. An average smartphone case will take about 30 minutes to print.
How do i build it? There is a detailed set of instructions located here http://www.k8200.eu/manual/building
You will also need some specific tools the full set can be located here http://www.k8200.eu/manual/building/?c=000
