When it comes to 3D Printers, size does matter, the CreatBot DH is the largest 3d printer in the Series and boasts an epic 28 litre- 250 x 250 x 450mm build volume and 0.04mm print resolution, high speed at less than half the price of it's "industrial sized" competitors.
This solid constructed 3D Printer has dual print heads, semi enclosed chamber with see through walls, a heated glass print bed and a bowden style extruder.The extruder has the stepper motors positioned at the back of the machine which results in a light weight print head assembly enabling high speed 3D Printing. The CreatBot DH prints beautifully in PLA and ABS as well as other filaments including soluble HIPS and PVA. A great machine for engineering and education, stacking up multiple objects for production work, large architectural models, sculpture, jigs and fixtures, 3D printing people from scanned data or anyone who does not wish to be constrained by the size of their 3D printer.
This printer utilises open source slicing technology and comes with optimised Cura 3D Printing software presets. Other open source slicers can also be used such as Repetier and Simplify3D
High Speed Photography of the final moments of a 40 hour print of the 450 High Eiffel Tower
This Eiffel was printed 450mm high and took 40 hours to print.
Here is a video showing the unboxing of the 40kg CreatBot DH 3D printer. Two rolls of filament, a tool kit, USB cable, SD Card and a selection of spare parts are included.
This 3D Printer has epic proportions. The Extruders on the CreatBot have interchangeable Nozzles, available in both the standard 0.4mm and 0.8mm for high speed printing.
The glass print bed has a unique micro-crystalline textured undersize surface which improves heat transfer to the rigidly mounted glass top.

The large solid filament feed guides are mounted on the rear of the printer, not on the print head- so they can be large and dependable without adding weight to the extruder head mechanism.
An 80mm Display Shows information about the 3D Printer status, you can pre heat, control the printer and run bed a leveling proceedure. You can also save G-code files on the provided SD card and print directly from the printer interface without the need to be connected to a PC. The controls allow you to make adjustments while you are printing- change print speeds, flow rates and temperatures, nozzles etc, on the fly.
Here is our first test print of a 450mm Vase printed at 0.3mm resolution in 8 hours and it was going slow!
This is a close up of the print quality of the CreatBot DH. Printed with a 0.3mm layers thickness in PLA. Each layer is very consistent from to to bottom, a testament to the rigidity and mechanical stability of this massive 3D Printer.This printer is cabable of 0.04mm (40 microns)
