Where can I get a new 3D printer with Duet3d already installed?


  • administrators

    @jonty along with those mentioned there is the e3d toolchanger and Railcore II , also Fusion 3, 3d Platform, Hydra research is about to bring out one: https://www.hydraresearch3d.com/



  • Thanks for all the responses. There's some really interesting stuff out there but I didn't see any off-the-shelf consumer machines with Duet3D... So, I guess there might be some custom builders out there somewhere?

    What I really want is a 300x300 bed with Duet3D Ethernet and BLTouch + maybe some other upgrades.

    I don't have the patience to fiddle with a kit - I want it built, fully upgraded, configured and tested.

    Any ideas?

    Several of the links posted had assembled/tested printers... ?? Therefore, not sure what you are asking differently than those links.

    Yes, some were kits; but again, some were "turn-key".



  • Here are 4 fully assembled "ready to print" choices. I'm sure there's more that I missed in the links above.

  • @danal Thanks for your suggestions - None of them are 300x300. SeeMeCNC doesn't ship internationally even if they had what I want. I need it shipped to Ireland. Nautilus is a commercial non-starter straight out of the gate at $2500 for a 205x205mm bed.

    I'm looking for something like a Creality3D CR-10S Pro upgraded to Duet 3D + BLTouch.

    Thanks

    The low-cost consumer level printers all use cheap Chinese electronics, to keep the cost down. At that price point, your best bed would be to buy a CR10 or similar and upgrade it yourself to a Duet Maestro + BLTouch. You may find the Creality Ender 3 upgrade guides at https://duet3d.dozuki.com/c/Duet_2_Maestro helpful.

    upgrade it yourself

    That's exactly what I don't want to do.

    I want to find a vendor who builds custom printers to order - like when you buy a custom built PC.

    While I understand what you want, thats a path to folly. And to be brutally honest from what you are asking I dont think anyone will really want to work with you on what you are asking for.

    Because 3d printers are NOT yet at a point where you press print and a finished part pops out the other end, and that seems to be what you are looking for, and if someone was to offer you that service it would end up to be nothing but a pain in their ass, because from what you are asking as soon as you encountered any issue you didnt understand you would be jumping on the vendor blaming them.

    because of what you are asking you will never understand the nuts and bolts (and G-code) of what makes a printer tick, imagine a partial nozzle clog due to temp and humidity changes you would not know how to trouble shoot those things and again would jump on the vendor to bail you out.

    I'm sorry if that seems harsh but alas 3d printers are not plug n play yet.

    You need to take the time to learn how to use, configure and fix one, or pay BIG BIG money for an out of the box solution.

    You're completely wrong. That's the "folly" of making assumptions and jumping to conclusions.

    I already know "the nuts and bolts (and G-code)" that you say I "will never understand".

    This is not my first 3D printer. I want something more advanced now, hence... Duet3D.

    I don't have to actually build it, to enjoy "using, configuring or fixing" it.

    Much thanks for your concern.



  • Whether he's wrong or not I couldn't possibly know, but you do show an overly aggressive "bedside manner" that makes me think he's right that no vendor would really want to deal with you.

    I don't know if this is meant to be your second printer or if you had more than one already, but I think CalvinX is right about mucking about with printers; there's some things people simply won't learn without doing it. If you've extensively modded, repaired, upgraded, etc. a printer before then maybe you really are well on your way. If you haven't, then I think CalvinX is right.

    How much is a Duet Wifi right now? $179 or so? Why not just buy a cheap-enough printer whose features you want and in approximately the price range you want and upgrade it to a Duet Wifi yourself? It's only a very small fraction of the time and effort of building a whole printer. If you look at the printers available it should be possible to find one whose existing components, with little to no further modification, should be compatible. Unhook some wires, hook up the Duet Wifi, print out a case to hold it, and be on your way. I got my original Wanhao printer up and running with Duet Wifi in one evening, and built my D-Bot with another Duet Wifi from the ground up, skipping the RAMPS completely that was specced in the design. It wasn't rocket science, and it didn't take much time. If you can't spare one weekend to do this yourself then good luck when your printer requires some other maintenance.



  • @Jonty SeeMeCNC's BossDelta meets every requirement you've stated. Further, it says right on the web page that they will work with a freight forwarder for shipment of a BossDelta beyond the 48 states.



  • https://www.projectr3d.com/products/railcore-300zl-fully-assembled-1 is sold out currently, but maybe if you ask the projectr3d people they can tell you if and when it is back in stock again. It's 300x300x330, fully enclosed, and runs on Duet.

    Thanks very much Oliof - The railcore-300zl hits the nail on the head - It's perfect!



  • Yes, the Railcore will be back in stock soon, email ProjectR3D to get put on a notification list.
