The CR-X 2 color kit contains three main parts, which are quick and easy to assemble with minimal hardware experience. The printer comes with filament run-out detection, which pauses the print and waits for filament replacement if it runs out mid-print. Using the SD-card slot and LCD screen you can print stand-alone, so a computer is not necessary. The heater bed has been upgraded with an adhesion-improving coating.
The frame is made from aluminum V-slot extrusions and in combination with the bowden system for the extruder, results in a lightweight, sturdy frame with 0.1mm Z-axis print precision. The lead screws on the Z-axis will add to the quality of the prints. You need to feed gcode files to print, which can be generated using free software like Slic3r or Cura.
Included are tools for assembly and a small piece of filament. We recommend including a spool of Real filament in your purchase to start 3D printing right away.

Bowden printers feed filament through a tube as opposed to Direct Drive systems. This adds important advantages (faster printing) and disadvantages (higher filament retraction settings). You can find more information on Direct Drive and Bowden systems, Click here

A SD Card in your printer will allow you to store prints and print them directly from SD. This is more reliable than a USB connection and allows you to power down your computer.
A heated bed is important to reduce Warping and have a better adhesion of the 3D print to the print bed.
|Auto Bed Leveling
The auto bed leveling feature will probe the buildplate on a few different points. This allows the 3D printer to detect deviations in the buildplate and adjust the print accordingly. This makes is much easier to start a print as you don't have to manually adjust the bed position.
This feature allows your printer to be controlled over a WIFI network. You can execute movements as well as start a print.
This feature allows your printer to be controlled over a Ethernet network. You can execute movements as well as start a print.
