  • Large format 3D printer - Help me get it gone!


    UPDATE: Price drop! I've got no room for this in my poor shop and need it gone! Price dropped to clear it out! Full retail price is over $6k! Asking $750 plus shipping. Check out the listing and buy-it-now here: https://www.rc-submarine.com/product...-18-3d-printer This is my personal large-format 3D printer that I've used for printing the hulls of submarines amongst many, many other things.

    It's been a reliable printer for me over the years, but I'm letting it go for newer technology. The accordian-style gantry seal at the top was removed due to the adhesive coming loose, but I honestly never understood the point of it anyway. The only issue it has is the main power switch, which is behaving erratically. Five minutes and a $0.25 rocker switch will have that addressed. It still works now, but you sometimes need to rock it a few times to take power.

    Here are the technical specs I downloaded. Buyer responsible for confirming any specific details that are imperative to your efforts prior to purchase, as I cannot guarantee the accuracy of the specs provided. They are for guidance only.

    Makerbot has their own proprietary slicing software, which you can download for free. It is exceptionally easy to use and does result in very good prints.
