    Detailed Description
    (Manufacturer # K8200 )

    What is it?
    The K8200 3D printer is a DIY 3D Printer kit that can be assembled easily at home. It's so simple to use that anyone can bring their ideas to life.
    How Does it Work?
    The K8200 uses molten plastics to build up an object layer by layer. By building up each layer slightly differently it can transform 3D design files on your computer into real, 3D plastic objects.
    What Can it Make?
    As long as the piece fits into the K8200 print area, you're limited only by your imagination! We've seen people make robots, planes, mugs, doorknobs, dog toys, dog tags, real shoes, phone cases, floating bath toys, napkin rings, androids, linked bracelets, chess pieces, cathedrals (very small ones though), gnomes.... and much much more! The K8200 can take any compatible 3D model and print it as a real object.
    What Colors can I Use?
    The K8200 uses cartridges that come in a wide variety of colors. While the printer can only use one cartridge at a time you can print your creation in separate pieces and attach them together later.
    How Long Does it Take to Print?
    The print time is proportional to the size and complexity of the creation. An average smartphone case will take about 30 minutes to print.
