US-based manufacturer of 2D printer technologies, Selpic Inc has launched its flagship product in the field of 3D printing: Selpic Star A.
Described as a cost-effective multifunctional 3D printer, the super-compact device supports open-source customization and multiple functions.
Already available on Kickstarter, the lightweight 3D printer measures 10.2’’x9.4’’x9.8’’ (25cmx24x25cm) and weighs 4.4 Ibs (2kg). This makes Star A stand out because it is almost 3 times lighter than ordinary 3D printers. It won’t take up much space and can be moved easily. Despite the compact body, Star A is sturdy and can remain completely stable while operating. Also, Star A is super easy to install and operate. Its assembly can be finished in just simple 3 steps. All you need to do is just tightening 2 screws, connecting 2 cables, and ready the filament. The whole process takes 2 minutes or even less. Besides, Star A applies a 4-button operation. And the buttons can light up to aid your use.
Star A is designed for a professional printing performance. It uses direct extrusion technology. This helps avoid filament oozing and stringing, achieving better extrusion and faster retraction. Star A’s nozzle is made of brass and can keep the extrusion process smooth thanks to its smooth inner wall, excellent thermal conductivity, and constant temperature control. Besides, Star A’s X-Axis and Y-Axis accuracy can reach 100 μm, and the Z-Axis is 50 μm. Its printing resolution is ±0.1 mm and the layer thickness is 0.1~0.2mm. With Star A, every work comes to life with smooth surfaces and finer details.
Adopting a low-noise motor, Star A keeps its operating noise down below 60db. This means you may have Star A running without disturbing your work or others. Moreover, Star A has the resume -printing function. In the cases of a power outage or filament exhaustion, it can stop working and continue from where it left off last time. This function can save filament and avoid wasting time and effort.
Most importantly, Star A supports add-ons. The buttons can be replaced by a 2.4-inch full-color touch screen. You can install the laser engraving head to start your laser engraving. And you can also use an upgraded hotbed that can heat up to 100℃, achieving stronger layer adhesion and better printing effect.
This 3D printer Selpic Star A is now available on Kickstarter with special discounts for early backers.
