The Creatr is a real game changer for entry-level 3D printers. The 3D printer is fully assembled and pre-calibrated when it arrives at your doorstep. This means that the installation of the printer does not take up a lot of your time and you will be printing your first object in about 30 minutes! Before you start printing, you will need to unpack your printer and install two software programs; one for the conversion of your design from a 3D software STL-file to a printable file [G-code], and another software program to control the printer. At Leapfrog, you have the choice between two versions of our 3D printer the Creatr: a Single extruder or a Dual extruder. But what’s the difference between the two? A Dual extruder has two extruders, providing you with the possibility to print with two colors or two different materials at the same time. This also means that you can print with ABS filament and with soluble PLA or PVA filament that can serve as support material.The plastics PLA and PVA are both materials that can be dissolved and do not leave any marks on the surface of your print. The Single extruder has only one extruder, which means that you can only print with one material at a time. Of course it is also possible to print your support material, as well as your design, with ABS filament. However, this means that you will need to break away the support material instead of dissolving it, leaving marks on the surface of your printed object. We at Leapfrog believe in providing a 3D printer that is build to last, combined with superb quality. As a result, the Creatr is made of laser-cut aluminum parts as opposed to wood or plastic.This also means that the accuracy of the printer is unaffected by temperature changes and does not diminish over time, providing you with the best quality.
