Mini Fabrikator 3D Printer by Tiny Boy will blow you away with the quality of print a little machine can produce, it is comparable to big machines many, many times the price. Our aim with bringing this printer to market was to offer our customers a cost effective way to try out 3D printing with a footprint that can accomodate most hobbyist's early projects. Because of the small overall size of this printer it will fit in even the most restricted of work spaces and can be picked up and easily stored, making it ideal for schools and students.
The original TinyBoy printer was designed Parker Leung around a concept that by 2016 every student should have the opportunity to have a 3D printer on their desk; the youth is our future and this is part of the reason why we got behind it. The other reason was because of the incredible print quality you can achieve in this printer for such a low cost.
Like any computer hardware the Mini Fabrikator needs software to run it, we recommend to use Repetier-Host as the printing software as it is a simple to set up and use program that most customers will have up and running in about 15 minutes. Other than this the printer is ready to go.
We have also partenered with Tiny Boy so you are able to use their community to discuss your Mini Fabrikator with other users, share ideas and show off your lastest print projects. You will also find other useful tips and tricks, Repetier-Host settings, copy of the manual and keep up to date with the latest news from the Tiny Boy team. Click here to find out more.
Tiny Boy was originally designed as a learning activity where school students would build the printer themselves, this means the printer is incredibly easy to maintain and service yourself and even upgrade with things like LED lights, direct cooling, LCD screen and SD card slot or even a heated print bed.

Well, working time was short for me. 2 hours printing and the Y motor began to loose acuracy, and now, it's impossible to finish any object, because after3 or 4 layer, y axis begins to shift.
Asked a RMA to HK.
I like this printer, but i want one that works.
it finally works (2:30 am)
Extruder at 210
Speed 60 pcnt
Don't use cura setting files, coz there is an error in it that prevents the printer from running : it waits the plate to heat 50 ... wich will never happen, because the plate can't heat.
Just copy exactly what is writen in manual... and it will work.
nice tiny device.Ordered Friday Night, Received in France Monday morning with UPSand 42 of tax.
It takes half an hours to set it with the provided Manual. Everything is clear and easy.
Default (in the Manual) settings are just prefects !
at 0,1mm it's very very clean !
Just be carefull at 0,1mm to add a second Fan for cooling the Head enough. Soon a Video
