NOTE: This printer is NOT a dual-extruder printer. It does not automatically switch between filaments.
The 508 was designed to hold two spools as a convenience, because there is plenty of room inside to keep filament dry and clean.
It was also originally intended to at some future point be extended to create a full dual-extruder machine. This proved not to be practical. We have instead designed a greatly-changed model of the printer that will soon become available.
NOTE: This printer requires a USB connection to a nearby computer to operate. A Windows 10 computer is best (Mac is usable but not as straightforward.)
ON-SITE SERVICE: An extra-charge optional service for clients located within Dallas Fort Worth. Clients outside DFW must email firstname.lastname@example.org for a distant onsite service quote.
Onsite service covers travel costs for trips made by our technicians to service your printer. This effectively turns the carry-in warranty into an on-site warranty. We highly recommend this for educational systems and businesses.
