MAKE SOMETHING WONDERFUL
Snapmaker is more than just a series of machines. The creative application of the Controller Area Network realizes modularity, based on which you can enjoy a lot of amazing features simply by getting new modules or add-ons.
Free 3-in-1 Software
Snapmaker Luban is a free, open source CAM software committed to software services that allow full controls over 3D printing, laser engraving and cutting, and CNC carving capabilities.
Great Snapterrarium ehh Snapmaker.
Works great. Had a faulty touchscreen but SM send me a new one and now all works like a charm.
I attached it to the outside of the enclosure, where my emergency stop was plugged in.
So I am prepared for future expansions and only need to plug you in.
A very solid as well as visually beautiful CAN hub, now only the extensions are missing which can then be connected without problems.
A big thumbs up to Snapmaker and its engineers.
Easy to built
Easy to use
Very satisfying With my enclosure.
as expected and good description to assemble.
I really love this great piece of technology! I really can't stop printing things with it. It was worth waiting for it, and the Snapmaker team really held their promise and delivered all the purchased items in time. There are two minor things that need improving in my opinion: the most important would be a soft PowerOff button/function, because it feels kind of "bad" just turning off the machine by cutting power, and the second thing is the Spool Holder on the side of the enclosure, because the filament always get on top of the left linear module. This things are easily fixable and cant be really called problems but i really would love to see a firmware update that would address the PowerOff "issue". All in all this machine is wort every Cent. Can't wait to see more expansion/usefull things like the Camera Module, a more powerful Laser Module ;) and so on ... Thank You Very Much Snapmaker Team!
Great case, the design makes it possible for future add ons to be added and for the current features to be fairly seamlessly added.
The materials are well used and made and it's very easy to assemble, added to that is that building the case does require two people when assembling it. Especially fitting it to the printer if you haven't build it around the printer.
Also knowing people around the laser are safe when they enter the room makes for an immediate buy from me.
High Quality Enclosure, i am very happy with it👍🏻 Easy to build because you get a high detailed Build Manual, perfect led stripes in it for good lightning. Fits good on a standard IKEA table ;P
Great 3D printer! Initial setup is very easy, though two people are almost required to build it safely. Once it was built I was printing in less than 30 minutes. Also tried the laser engraving/cutting and that was just as easy, if not easier, to set up and run my first jobs.
All in all I can definitely recommend it!
I am new to the world of 3D printing and CNC, so take may opinion with a grain of salt, but I must say I am very impressed with the capabilities and the quality of Snapmaker.
Manufacturing quality and packaging is perfect to the last detail, the structure very robust, which was one of the reasons I went for this machine. The controls are intuitive and simple enough.
I have been printing non-stop and so far, I have come across no serious issues.
The prints are very clean and precise.
The only three things, so far, where I can see some room for improvement are the loudness of the power source, which makes way more noise than the machine itself.
The instruction manual is missing some key pieces of information, like how to replace a filament coil, though that's fairly self-explanatory, or information on maintenance, cleaning, and the replacing of extruders, but those can probably be found online.
In the firmware I have come across a bug where the UI crashes when you try to delete a file from a mounted USB drive, which, by the way, must be formatted as FAT32 with a block size of 8192, otherwise it will not be detected. This information can only be found in forums.
But all of these are just minor issues with simple workarounds. Given that the machine has just been released, I am sure these will be addressed soon enough, though I'll be probably stuck with the noisy power source fan.
As I want to really master 3D printing before I move on to CNC and laser engraving, and since I have started a few projects which still require numerous parts to be printed, I can not comment on the quality of the CNC and the laser heads, but I am confident those work just fine, too.
Last but not least, I have to mention the accessories which came with the machine, which are also of a very high grade and very useful.
All in all, I can say that Snapmaker is well worth the wait and I can definitely recommend it.
I love my new Snapmaker A350. The machine not only looks great (even the packaging it comes in) but also performs very well, it is well designed and manufactured, sturdy, rigid and precise to ensure high quality products get created. Although I am still quite new to the 3d printing hobby, I had till now all my 3d prints come out great without any failed prints (tested in PLA and wood PLA). One time I was amazed by the bridging capabilities when I forgat to add some support and the print came still out perfect anyways, printing a bridge of about 6 cm in mid air in a straight line. The software performs well and is easy to use and is still getting extended with new features and improvements. Upgrading the firmware was also easy and can now be done from the machine itself. The bed leveling is also very easy to use and ensures perfect prints.I love the look and feel and ease of use from the controller on the machine. Next I still need to test laser engraving and cnc milling, but the 3d printing functionality is super and I am sure I will equally be satisfied with the other 2 functions as well. It is easy to assemble the machine and has an easy to follow, very detailed manual to do so even for people with no experience. The optional accompanying enclosure is also very recommended to get, but be aware of the size! Also the customer support is great and helpful and quick to answer on any issues you might have. The warranty is also great, when I unfortunately had a defective piece, a replacement was send very quickly and it resolved my issue first time right. I can recommend this product and company and you will also not be disappointed with it.
Who We Are
The success on Kickstarter rewards is just the beginning of our journey. We are determined to make such fabrication tools as 3D printers, laser engravers, and CNC carvers more accessible with higher quality, lower price, and better user experience.
What do 3D experts think of Snapmaker?
The Snapmaker is a hybrid 3D printer, laser etcher, and CNC cutter all in one machine. This isn't the first hybrid we've tested, and while hybrids are capable of doing all the tasks they advertise, they tend to do so with compromises. But with the Snapmaker, I still found it to be a great little printer.
Performing an admirable job across three distinct functions, the Snapmaker is a maker’s dream tool for small-scale work. There are better individual tools that cost less than the Snapmaker’s $799, but few, if any, that challenge it for 3D printing, laser engraving and CNC carving all in one.
The Snapmaker 3-in-1 3D printer doesn’t pretend to be anything it is not. The presentation and ease of assembly are testament to a company who is clear in their objective, to provide an entry level and affordable solution for those seeking an introduction to not only 3D printing, but the broader world of Makers.
It's the best 3D printer packaging I've seen in my life, and I've used many 3D printers over the last years. The assembly process was really easy. Even a friend found it easy, and she didn’t have any previous experience with 3D printing.
