K8200 Filament

Velleman offers both ABS and PLA filament for use with your K8200 3D Printer.  ABS is a tougher material, good for heat-resistance.  PLA is a bit more flexible, and is a non-toxic filament.   

The K8200 accepts both ABS and PLA filament, however you must use size 3mm, unless you upgrade with the K8203 Extruder Kit, which will allow you to print using 1.75mm ABS or PLA filament, for improved resolution.

    I bought this kit from Velleman and coulding be happier! Building the kit was not too difficult and after a few nice modifications my machine prints out the most detailed and coolest designs. HIGHLY RECOMMEND buying this printer kit...you won't regret it!!!

    One word for this kit and that is AWESOME !! There is some care required in building but nothing that requires an immense amount of skill, just attention to detail as the assembly manual is over 600 pages. I built mine in stages over a week and had no missing parts. I bought it for home use as I like to create stuff using technology and this worked a charm, came very quick all in the box!
