Printrbot Go Large Fully Assembled 3D Printer, 24″ x 12″ x 12″ Maximum Build Dimensions, 100 Micron Resolution, 1.75-mm ABS and PLA Filament

The Printrbot Go Large Fully Assembled 3D fused-filament-fabrication printer with triple extruders is designed for portability and has an open platform for fabricating parts up to 24 x 12 x 12 inches (H x W x D) using three 1.75-mm ABS or PLA filaments (sold separately). The printer has a wood frame that folds into a compact, portable box with handle for transport or storage. Collapsing the frame for transport does not require dismantling any parts, and the hard shell protects all internal components. The triple extruder enables printing in three colors or materials, including water-soluble PLA for temporary support structures in a printed part. The printer head moves on the X (left to right) axis and Z (up and down) axes, while the bed moves on the Y (backward and forward). The printer uses open source software and connects to the computer using the included micro-USB cable. The integrated Raspberry Pi single-board computer allows computers, tablets, and capable phones to connect remotely to the printer over Wi-Fi and control the print job. The printer accepts a battery (sold separately) for use when a power outlet is not available.

The print table is machined-flat MIC 6 aluminum cast plate and includes an auto-leveling probe that works with the user-chosen computer software to provide a level print surface. The guide rails have a 12-mm diameter for stability and dual NEMA 17 motors with linear bearings for smooth vertical movement of the print head. The GT2 belt and aluminum pulley system facilitates precise movement of the print head. The hot end has a maximum resolution of 100 microns and includes a shrouded fan to help solidify the molten material by directing air toward it as it is extruded onto the print table. The printer includes two sample lengths of PLA (polylactic acid) 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.

  1. Printrbot Go Large (*updated) Returned for refund….(*updated again) This is a preliminary review based on less than a weeks use.First, the good…This thing is built like a tank (well, except for the wood covers). The triple hot end is unbelievable….it’s filament feed design looks and operates like it could feed fan belts into the extruder. Very robust. The rails are ALL 12mm. All movement axis have 2 motors on them (not one). The build plate is a hunk of aluminum that looks like it could be used as a griddle. I’m impressed considering most…

  2. Like another customer stated Don’t believe the five star rating on this printer. Like another customer stated, my printer also had a broken Build plate when I received it. There were all kinds of zip ties and broken screws in the Bot once the covers where removed, I don’t know if this was a returned unit they sent to Amazon for resale or not. But I know I will be exercising my 30 day return policy with Amazon. If this thing does not work, then it’s going back to UPS.Again, these are my initial thoughts. This is…
