The original RapMan 3D Printer was launched earlier this year, offering a revolutionary price / performance ratio within the 3D printing sector. The RapMan was, and still is, available for only £750 in kit form.
The RapMan Pro, however, builds on this offering with a pre-built version of the 3D Printer — with all of the benefits of the previous version with further refinements. The improvements include an anodized aluminum chassis, which provides greater rigidity and the Z axis now uses lead screws, which has enhanced Z-axis performance, accuracy and repeatability. The RapMan Pro will sell for just under £2,000 — still a fraction of the price of the competition, but giving away little in terms of performance or quality. Indeed, the RapMan Pro is faster than most 3D printers on the market and offers a wider choice of polymers than most of them too.
Designed by Bits From Bytes the RapMan Pro has been developed in line with a philosophy of open collaboration and is supplied by A1 Technologies — a company that fully believes in promoting advanced technologies for everyone.
It is really important to understand that the RapMan and the RapMan Pro offer seriously competitive advantages for any company or organization that is considering 3D Printing for product development and prototyping projects. The entry-level price should NOT be perceived as being indicative of inferior technologies or capabilities, as this is just not the case. The RapMan and RapMan Pro 3D Printers will be exhibited during the two-day TCT Live show, together with parts that have been built on the machine. Within this setting it will be easy for visitors to see for themselves just how the RapMan Pro compares with all of the other 3D printers on the market.
