The Printrbot Simple is an exercise in 3D printing minimalism. It includes only what is needed to get started in the world of 3D printing. After building this kit you'll have a fully-functioning 3D printer that weighs only 10 lbs and fits nicely on your desk
Please note! the Printrbot is a kit and not for beginners! You'll get all the parts to assemble your own 3D printer but it does require some technical expertise, time and effort to assemble.
