Velleman K8600 Vertex Nano Desktop 3D Printer Kit

Introducing the Vertex Nano — a nano sized 3D printer based on the accuracy and usability of our first Vertex 3D printer. With a 9.06 in. x 5.91 in. x 6.3 in. frame and weighing only 5 lbs, the Vertex Nano is the perfect sized desktop 3D printer. The Nano brings you the same high resolution 3D printing capabilities as the K8400 with a 100 micron layer resolution.

Use the Vertex Nano to quickly print your creative ideas straight from your desk with a 40 mm/s print speed. The 3.15 in. x 3.15 in. build plate is magnetically attached to the x-axis and uses a BuildTak bed surface for easy removal of 3D prints. Connect your K8600 via USB to a Windows, Linux or MacOS computer for board firmware updates. Load your prints directly with an SD card to begin printing.

Vertex Nano Key Features

Quality & Size

At under 10 inches tall and under 6 inches wide, print with the same, high-quality as the K8400 at a fraction of the size. Use 1.75 mm PLA or ABS filament to create professional quality 3D prints right from your desk.

Magnetic Removeable Bed Plate

The metal Nano bed plate magnetically attaches to the bed holder. After a print is completed, detach the bed plate for easy print removal.

Bed Leveling Memory

Manually set your bed leveling settings and save them to the K8600's memory.

Isolator Upgrade

Hotend isolator guides have upgraded from the K8400's plastic model to a new metal version. A fan is also attached to the hotend isolator to assist in temperature control.

Peace and Quiet Printing

Print your prototypes and projects in near silence with a low operating noise level of 45 dBA.

Additional Information

Difficulty Level 5
  1. Super reliable, but could have an usb connection review by edgarinventor on 7/31/2018

    Bought it in Portugal, from a store, but NOT fully assembled. Despite that, it is a neat little printer, goes like clockwork. But why didn't you added a 90 degrees plug usb-printer cable, is beyond me! I bought one and now it's connected to the computer. it's good enough to be sold really assembled, and with that cable, it would be a dream come true. and if you made it larger.. WOW!
