The Tronxy X-3 desktop 3D printer kit is a great way to get into 3D printing without committing to an expensive upmarket printer.
With its clean, desktop design the X-3 is quick to assemble with extruded aluminum profile sections to make everything rigid and these, combined with strategic use of acrylic parts keep the weight to a minimum. Unusual for a printer in this price range the X-3 includes an auto-level function so you don't have to constantly check levels before every print which is quite common with many inexpensive printers.
As you can see from the product video the print quality from X-3 is exceptionally good considering the price you are paying for it. So if you need a printer that can print larger sized spare parts and usable prototypes this is an excellent option for you.
Need to take your laptop away while you're printing? No problem; the Tronxy X-3 can use either a direct USB connection to your computer or can print via a micro SD card, so that you can load whatever files you need to print onto that, put it into the printer and print from there.
The X-3 is compatible with Windows XP, Windows 7 and Mac systems and uses readily available Cura, Repetier-Host and Slic3r software for slicing into g-code for printing.
During operation the X-3 can be fine-tuned using the 5-button controls to navigate the easy to read white on blue LED display screen.
The build volume of 220 x 220 x 300mm is ideal for creating large objects.
Why wait? Take the plunge into the endless possibilities offered by 3D printing with the Tronxy X-3 desktop 3D printer!
