Brooklyn-based Solidoodle unveils the Solidoodle 4, the company’s sleek, new 3D printer for the consumer market. Reflecting today’s trend of aesthetically minded products, the Solidoodle 4’s fully enclosed design incorporates style with increased functionality and accessibility. Features include build capabilities up to 8 in x 8 in x 8 in, high-resolution .1mm prints, enhanced calibration, heated bed, and easy filament installation. The enclosure provides for even quieter performance and a low-profile aesthetic that fits in any room while the easy-open lid and door retain a user-friendly design, giving customers the both of best worlds.

Standard Features:

  • Creates plastic parts up to 8" x 8" x 8"
  • Uses 1.75mm plastic filament (ABS recommended, PLA possible)
  • Heated Build Platform
  • Resolution up to .1mm
  • 13.5" x 14" x 15" case footprint (L x W x H)
  • Internal Steel frame
  • Powder coated steel enclosure

  • Fully Assembled & Tested

With the new product, Solidoodle announces their first national retail partnership with electronics chain Micro Center. The printer will be on Micro Center shelves during the holiday season responding to high consumer demand.

“Our mission is to get more people creating! 3D printers are an amazing tool for today’s innovative society. With the Solidoodle 4, anyone can bridge the gap between digital and physical,” says Solidoodle founder and CEO Sam Cervantes. “Developing 3D printers that are affordable and easy to use is key to our growth and success, and our new product is a major step in that evolution. I’m thrilled to have Micro Center as our first US retail partner. They have a longstanding reputation in the electronics retail space — I actually purchased my first Macintosh 512K from Micro Center in the 1980s. So I am a huge fan of their stores and having our products on their shelves is a dream come true.”

Solidoodle, founded in 2011 by aerospace engineer and 3D printing industry-veteran Sam Cervantes, builds the most affordable fully assembled 3D printers on the market for both professional and consumer use.
