Pittsford, NY: Saelig Company, Inc. (www.saelig.com) announces the availability of the Replicator(TM), an affordable, personal 3D printer offering 1- or 2-color "printing" of solid objects. The Replicator runs open-source 3D-printing code and is compact enough to fit on a desktop. Ready within minutes to start printing right out of the box, The Replicator fabricator turns raw feedstock, such ABS or PLA, into instant prototypes as large as a loaf of bread.
The Replicator is a precision-made parts fabricator, built with linear ball bearings and precision-ground 8 mm shafts, ideal for personalized manufacturing or prototyping, providing a new way to fabricate designs and variants quickly as large as 225 x145 x150 mm (8.9" x 5.7" x 5.9"). The Replicator is available with single or dual extruders, facilitating simultaneous two-color printing.
The Replicator features a 4x20 character LCD panel and multi-directional control pad.
