The Series 1 offers the full cubic foot of build volume, industrial-grade components, and professional results at a more affordable price.
Heated build platform
Type A Machines works to provide the very best tools and with the introduction of the new Series 1 and Series 1 Pro, we are introducing a choice of models.
Their goal when developing the new Series 1 was to deliver an uncompromised experience with the same high quality output as our Series 1 Pro with a more accessible price.
We think you'll be thrilled with the results.
The Series 1 includes:
- Full 12"x12"x12" print volume
- Network-ready via Ethernet or Wi-Fi
- Wi-Fi Access Point for out-of-the-box connection
- Cura for Type A Machines slicing software
- Software Updates at the click of a button
- One Year License for Autodesk Fusion 360
- 1 Year of support with unlimited email
- 1 Year Warranty
Type A Machines knows that quality components matter and that the size of the build volume has significant impact. We know features such as the extruder must be reliable. Rather than compromise, they took advantage of the modular design of the Series 1 to deliver the same industrial grade tool, with a few features available as options. Type A's heated build platform is a great boon for big prints and some materials and the webcam is great for reviewing jobs or monitoring many printers.
With these available as upgrades, the Series 1 delivers uncompromised, high precision, high quality results more affordably than ever.
A Higher Standard
Full Cubic Foot
305mm x 305mm x 305mm
A cubic foot of usable build volume enables bigger parts and broader applications, meaning more opportunities and unrivaled value in cost per cubic inch.
Building on a rigid aluminum frame, we add extruded aluminum lateral stiffeners and X-axis reinforcements resulting in high quality output, minimal deflection, and providing instant access to the full build platform; our signature open design.
- Virtually Clog-Free Extruder
