SK1: New, fast 3D printer
Manufacturer Two Trees has a new 3D printer on offer. The open model has an unusual design and a dual-gear extruder, and can also be operated wirelessly.

The SK1 is a new 3D printer from manufacturer Two Trees and is now available for purchase. The company uses a rather unusual design: it is not the print head itself that moves up and down, but rather the print bed. Hence, the leveling of the print bed is not just limited to detection of deviations, but it should also be possible to align it. In concrete terms, the height of the print bed can be controlled via three independent motors. According to Two Trees, leveling takes place with 36 calibration points.

At dimensions of 400 x 400 x 530 millimeters, the SK1 can print in a space of 256 x 256 x 256 millimeters. The high printing speed, which is specified as up to 700 mm/s, is heavily advertised. Such high printing speeds also require compromises in print quality. On the other hand, a high printing speed can be very useful for the rapid production of various design prototypes.

A dual-gear extruder is installed, whereby the actual printing nozzle can be heated to up to 300° C in just 30 seconds. Supported printing materials range from PLA, PETG, PC to ABS. Users should note that this is an open 3D printer, which means that potentially harmful exhaust gases can be emitted. A 4.3-inch touchscreen is installed, but remote control via WiFi using a laptop is said to be possible.

The SK1 Core is now available at a price of $575. Customers should inform themselves about possible shipping costs and import duties.

A possible alternative: Buy the Kobra 2 Plus 3D Printer at Amazon
