Dremel Announces New Ideal Builder 3D40 3D Printer

by • March 30, 2016 • No Comments

  • I’ve heard nothing but certainly great things of the Idea Builder of Dremel, which is not too surprising for the reason I’ve heard nothing but great things of the printing device off of which it is based, the Flashforge Dreamer. Now, the Idea Builder has gotten a big upgrade which is certain to please previous fans, as it comes with at very least one significant upgrade: WiFi.


    The new Dremel Idea Builder 3D40 is being marketed at schools and educational institutions for its ease of use. Unlike the previous mode, the upgrade showcases USB- and WiFi-enabled printing, as well as active filament monitoring, aided leveling, and what Dremel describes as a “maintenance-free extruder”. For the release, Dremel can in addition be releasing new Dremel 3D iOS and Android apps this May which can allow users to 3D print directly of their mobile devices. The create volume of the 3D40 is 10” x 6” x 6.7” (255 mm x 155 mm x 170 mm) and, while the upgrade yet does not reach the functionality of the Flashforge Dreamer, in terms of a heated bed, it does have a 3.5” full color IPS touch screen and 4 Gb of internal storage space.


    George Velez, manager, Dremel 3D Education, says of the new design, “As classrooms go on to approach education through hands-on learning, the advancements we’ve created to the Dremel Idea Builder 3D40 provide an unprecedented experience with 3D printing innovation. We wanted to donate educators and students the faculty to engage with 3D printing in a limitless capacity.”

    Because this is being targeted at schools, Dremel is offering both a standard retail design of the printing device, the (3D40-01), and an “EDU design”, (3D40-EDU). Whilst both come with PLA, create tape, and a flash drive with Dremel’s “Print Studio” software, the EDU design in addition comes with a 3D-specific curriculum, two create plates, extra create tape, and four spools of filament.

    Compared to current generation of the Flashforge Dreamer, the new Dremel machine in fact does not have much which the Dreamer does not have. The Dreamer has built-in WiFi, accepts USB, has its own touch screen and 4 Gb of internal storage space. The Idea Builder 3D40, yet, is only slightly bigger. If you are a fan of Dremel, yet, pre-orders for the Idea Builder 3D40 are open now with shipment expected in June.
