VERSATILE, DUAL HEAD 3D PRINTER

 

The dual extruder Creatr HS means you can print in two colours or two different materials. This desktop 3D printer uses 1.75mm filament in PLA, ABS, PVA / Dissolvable HIPS and other exotic materials. Dissolvable support is particularly useful where more complex support structures are required as the support can then be dissolved, leaving a smooth finish to the printed part. 

HIGH SPEED, BIG BUILD

 

The Creatr HS is 5 times faster than the original Creatr and has a large build size of 14.1 litres and can print objects up to 290mm in length, providing a great deal of flexibility for printing a range of different sized models, prototypes and parts. 

HEATED PRINT BED

 

The Creatr HS has a heated bed which helps when printing larger items to maintain a more stable print temperature.

PROFESSIONAL SOFTWARE & STANDALONE

 

The Creatr HS has a 4” LCD full colour screen from which you can control your 3D printer. Your print ready files are transferred using a USB stick for standalone printing, and it also comes with professional software Materialise.
