Australian Manufacturer 3D Stuffmaker's new Core G2 has hit the virtual shelves of American retailer 3D Stuffmaker USA. Billed as a light industrial, high resolution, dual head FDM 3D printer, the unit is designed to attract professional users.
Constructed of light industrial grade metal, the Core G2 looks as sturdy as a tank. It also has a healthy build envelope of 220 x 230 x 220 mm (8.6" x 9.0" x 8.6"). The extruders are a double-sided pressure feed design, amenable to flexible materials. A QuickChange connector allows for easy extruder exchange and the 3.5 mm-thick heated build plate is made of anodized aluminum.
The Core G2 prints with 1.75 mm filament and Its standard dual nozzles are .4 mm, allowing for wall thicknesses of 450 to 560 microns. The nozzles can be swapped for .7 mm or .3 mm to achieve wall thicknesses of 730 to 980 or 350 to 420, respectively. Its layer height can be set for 50 to 400 microns, depending on desired vertical resolution.
