Notes from the Workshop:
The Creatr HS is what we use here at 3D Supply Guys as our primary filament test machine – its versatility makes it ideal for a wide variety of filaments. With the machine’s high speed components comes increased operational noise – but precision remains consistent and reliable across the spectrum of available print speeds. If you’re seeking a reliable, fast, durable machine – the Creatr HS is for you.
About Leapfrog Creatr HS 3D Printer
The high speed Creatr HS prints up to 5 times faster than the regular Creatr. Coupled with the nearly 15 liter print volume & dual extruders, the Creatr HS is the perfect fit in many different applications. It features USB connectivity for tethered computer controlled printing, but also works directly with standalone files via a USB stick & the integrated firmware. A 4 inch LCD screen and rotating dial controller make direct interaction with the machine simple.
Designed in the Netherlands, the Leapfrog Creatr HS is durable & well built. The machine itself feels solid across all components, largely characteristic of its aluminum frame & metal rods. The print bed is a solid piece of thick glass, clearly designed to withstand the test of time and endure many prints without reduction in quality. Even under the added stress and vibrations owed the fast moving print carriage, the Creatr HS remains firmly intact – ensuring that despite the fast print speed, quality and machine integrity are maintained.
Dual extruders are fed filament through protective plastic tubes, driven by stepper motors. The filament rolls actually sit protected under the print bed assembly – in a unique design that minimizes the machine profile while allowing maximum build volume. The versatile extruders are well suited for a wide variety of filaments currently available- beyond the standard ABS & PLA, you can experiment with woodfill, PVA, Nylon, and more. The variable resolution (particularly when combined with the included & easy to use Simplify 3D software) allows you to fine tune the print specifications to best accommodate your desired filament.
