The Artisan is the most recent generation of 3-in-1 3D printers. This amazing modern 3D printer is going to be your new desktop powerhouse because it is larger, stronger, and more accessible than ever.
Ever heard of the 3-in-1 3D printer? These are not like normal traditional 3D printers because they not only do normal 3D printing but are capable of CNC carving, laser engraving, and cutting. With the Snapmaker Artisan, you can really do all of these.
Steel guide rails that are integrated into Artisan’s linear modules were manufactured via CNC grinding at the micron level, bringing desktop fabrication up to industrial-grade transmission standards. As a result, precision, rigidity, and durability are significantly increased, giving you a quick, precise, and solid creating experience. Also has a work area of 400 mm × 400 mm × 400 mm. With this large work area, you can really create big or multiple objects.
Although Artisan retains Snapmaker’s distinctive all-metal look, it also has an improved one-piece die-cast base plate that is larger in size. Even during high-speed CNC milling, it is rock-steady.
A specially designed piece of software called Snapmaker Luban, which is included with the Snapmaker Artisan, offers a clear and simple configuration procedure for 3D printing, laser cutting, and CNC machining. With just one piece of software, you can now excel in 3 fabrication techniques.
One of the features that make Artisan one of the best 3D printers is its printing speed. Because of the optimization of the transmission system and motion control algorithm, Artisan features ± 0.1 mm dimensional accuracy when printing at high speed of 180 mm/s.
The Artisan allows you to swap not just tool heads and platforms but also hot ends. Luban recognizes nozzle sizes and types and provides tailored combinations, allowing you to effortlessly create prototypes, high-strength parts, or whatever is required for your projects. The Dual Extrusion 3D Printing Module also has a motor that automatically lifts and switches between two extruders without the need for additional tool head movement or switches toggling. This makes dual-extrusion 3D printing faster and quieter.
PVA, HIPS, and other soluble materials are supported by the Dual-extrusion 3D Printing Module that is part of Artisan. The supports will disappear with a simple soak, leaving the model with smooth surface finishes. The issue of complex geometry is solved. Additionally, break-away filament provides the same level of support as conventional materials but is considerably simpler to remove without additional post-processing.
The new build plate from Artisan is constructed of glass that is more flat, resulting in a first layer that is smoother and stickier. It has glossy glass on one side and a PEI coating on the other, which helps different filaments adhere to it. For TPU and other flexible materials, glossy glass is useful since it makes it simple to remove prints. PEI coating offers great adhesion and works well with PLA, PETG, and other common materials.
A 260mm x 260 mm high-temperature zone (also known as the inner zone) sits in the center of Artisan’s heated bed and can reach temperatures of 110°C, while the outside zone’s peak temperature is 80°C. Time and energy are saved because the outer zone won’t be heated while your model is inside the inner zone, which heats up to 60°C in just 2-3 minutes.
With the Artisan, the heated bed can be automatically leveled, the Z offset of the two extruders can be calibrated, and semi-automatic software can calibrate the XY offset. You can enjoy dual-material or bicolor printing in 3 easy steps with precise alignment and adhesion.
