EasyThreed ET – 4000+ 3D printer is a kind of consumer 3D printer. It can make your custom creations come to life. Simply connect the printer, download the models, click print and watch how you bring the object to the word using 3D printing.
This ET – 4000+ 3D printer designed for the masses is ready to print straight out of the box. For all those newbies who find the dynamics of setting up a DIY 3D printer kit and then tweaking it to get the perfect prints daunting, the ET – 4000+ with its plug and play abilities presents an affordable alternative.
The EasyThreed ET – 4000+ has a compact, light but stable structure that does not at all feel cheaply built. Weighing as little as 1kg, it comes with an ABS-like material frame that encapsulates dual X-rails, belts and dual square rods for holding the Z-axis, a threaded rod, extruder, Y-axis pulley drive, nozzle, heat insulator, and a print bed. On the front of the frame is a print button for operating the device and an indicator light, while the rear houses the USB and TF Card ports, power button, feed and retract switch. It offers a low volume build size of 90x110x70 mm and an upper volume build size of 90x80x45 mm.
Of course, the ET – 4000+ comes as a fully assembled, ready-to-use 3D printer. That coupled with a lightweight and compact structure is the strongest USP of this device. Since it is designed to be used as an educational printer at home and in schools, safety is a key consideration. The ET – 4000+, with its solid ABS-like material frame, dual X-rails, belts and dual square rods to hold the Z-axis in place, delivers on the count perfectly. The hotend too is well-protected to reduce the risk of any accidental touch and this eliminates the need for tacking material even after running several prints on the ET – 4000+ in quick succession.
It is fitted with a single extruder and a nozzle with a 0.4 mm diameter which can offer a print accuracy of 0.1-0.2 mm at a print speed in the range of 10-40 mm per second. Yes, the ET – 4000+ is no speed demon but it more than makes up for its slower speed with impressive print results, provided you have the patience to work with it and keep your expectations realistic, considering that it is, after all, a budget offering.
With the level of noise produced by standard 3D printers, it is near impossible to teach children with print jobs running in the background, or get anything done around the house while the printer is working. The smooth, vibration-free movement makes the EasyThreed ET – 4000+ free of these annoying noises.
The one thing that this device is missing is the LCD screen. To operate this EasyThreed ET – 4000+, you need to insert the SD card and then work with the printer button on the frame. The printer can be controlled via the files uploaded to the SD card or through a PC via USB or COM cables. It also does not offer a versatile print material support and is compatible only with the PLA filament.
