Kickstarter launch for compact, hackable 3D printer

Kickstarter launch for compact, hackable 3D printer

The Cetus 3D Printer went live on Kickstarter yesterday and its small footprint means you can find a place for this diminutive creation on most workbenches.

A quick overview of specifications:

  • Printer dimensions: 265 x 275 x 265 mm
  • Print volume: 180 x 180 x 180 mm
  • Layer thickness: 0.05 – 0.35 mm
  • Platform leveling: Manual alignment, software-assisted leveling
  • Operating systems: Windows 7/8/10, Mac
  • Print technology: Melted extrusion modeling (MEM)
  • Material: Designed for PLA but open to other materials

All three axes are controlled with high-quality linear bearings that the start-up maintains provides excellent print quality. It comes with a self-levelling bed and it’s also virtually silent.

Despite its minimalism, there’s a lot that the Cetus can do. It offers three different fast-change nozzle size options of 0.2, 0.4 and 0.6 mm, and a specially designed adhesive coating allows for good first layer adhesion along with easy print removal. It’s pre-calibrated and can be used right out of the box via either USB or Wi-Fi, and its bundled Cetus Software (also available as an iOS app) offers 2D to 3D conversion, blackout recovery and automatic support generation.
