Touch Screen Controls

Start, monitor and pause your students’ prints with an intuitive interface, designed for easy 3D printing navigation.

Enclosed Chamber and Particulate Filter

Place your printer anywhere in the classroom without worrying about curious hands and print with peace of mind with a particulate filter installed in each printer.
