The Solidoodle Press fully assembled 3D fused-filament-fabrication printer has a fully enclosed frame for fabricating parts up to 8 x 8 x 8 inches (H x W x D) using 1.75-mm ABS and PLA filament (sold separately). The hot end has a maximum resolution of 0.1 mm. The printer comes with SoliPrint software that automatically calibrates the machine and levels the print bed to ensure precise prints, and it connects to the computer using the included USB cable. The printer head moves in the X (left and right) and Y (backward and forward) axes, while the print table moves in the Z (up and down) axis.

The frame is matte-black and made of injection-molded ABS. It is enclosed on all sides to dampen print noise and fumes. The high-precision aluminum and glass build plate can be heated up to 115 degrees C (239 degrees F) to prevent uneven cooling and warping of the printed part. The printer uses a proprietary spool and comes with a sample length of filament.

*H is height, the vertical distance from the lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.

Fused filament fabrication printers build prototypes and parts directly from computer-aided-design (CAD) data sources by stacking layers upon layers of molten material. The print material is provided in filament or wire form and is fed through an extruder within the print head, similar to how ink is used in a standard printer. A printer with a single extruder can print using one filament at a time; a printer with dual extruders can print with two different materials or colors at the same time. The thickness of the printed layers can be customized for each print, but the thinnest layer that a printer can lay is called its maximum resolution. Choosing to print using very thin layers will create parts with more detail, but will typically take longer to print. To lay the material in the correct way, the print head and bed typically move in a combination of X-axis (left and right), Y-axis (forward and backward), and Z-axis (up and down) movement.

Solidoodle manufactures 3D printers and accessories. The company, founded in 2011, manufactures its printers at its headquarters in Brooklyn, NY.

A hot mess…product and service. =======================UPDATE 5-21-15It’s been just a tad over 2 months since Solidoodle received my return of the printer and no refund. Multiple emails to customer service came back with a response they it was an accounting department mishap and my return would be escalated. During the past two months, my original filament order that was cancelled when I submitted for the printer return, was still billed and then shipped weeks later. Ironically, they sent it to the wrong…

Amazon Customer says:

False Advertising It’s a near miss. The enclosed print volume is nice, it looks great, and in many ways it comes *so* close… but it has some truly fatal flaws, compounded by some of the worst customer service I’ve ever had to deal with.First off, the extruder cable flops around inside the upper part of the enclosure and constantly jams either the X or Y axes, causing the stepper motors to stall. Some users have said they can fix it by adding a spring, bungie, or their own printed clip, but my unit at…
