Altair: Sleek New 3D Printer

/, News/Altair: Sleek New 3D Printer

Newest 3D printer on the block has sleek design and a consumer price

REXBURG, ID — August 25, 2014 —PrintSpace introduces a new delta style 3D printer at a fantastic consumer price. Altair 3D printer can print PLA, ABS, polycarbonate, flexible filament, nylon, and other high performance materials. Altair features automatic bed leveling which helps to ensure that objects print properly and ensures a low printing failure rate. Newbies to 3D printing can be up and printing in one hour.

Altair has a relatively small footprint for a good size build area. Altair can print objects 8″ in diameter and 11″ high; larger than competition in the same price range. Because of patent pending CarbonGlide™ technology, this printer is very quiet. While most 3D printers use an 8 bit controller, PrintSpace has packed a 32 bit controller into Altair, allowing for faster calculations, which means faster prints with no buffering. Altair is raising the bar for delta printer design with its sleek, minimalist look. In addition to being faster, delta printers are also a lot of fun to watch, making Altair ideal for producing high quality products as well as being a great educational tool.

There were no shortcuts taken in manufacturing this machine. Most of the parts are precision machined in the USA in Rexburg, Idaho. Each Altair will ship fully assembled, ready to be used right out of the box. Altair can be operated using the included display and control buttons using data from an SD card, eliminating the need to be tethered to a computer. However, Altair can also be controlled through USB.

Altair is designed by a former engineer at NASA, Mark Jaster, who started PrintSpace to follow his dream of designing and building quality 3D printing technology.
