FULCRUM Minibot 1.0 Tiny, Pre-Assembled 3D Printer Goes for $139

There are plenty of low-cost 3D printers in the $100-$200 range, but they usually ship in kits, need to be assembled by the end-user and some may feel uncomfortable with the procedure.

But some models ship fully assembled such as Easythreed NANO 3D printer, and there’s now another fully assembled 3D printer that’s just launched. Meet FULCRUM Minibot 1.0.

As we can see from the photo above, FULCRUM Minibot 1.0 does indeed come pre-assembled and it appears the user just needs to install the filament roll at the back on the 3D printer,  connect it to the nozzle, install a MicroSD card and connect the power supply. The 3D printer is really tiny and as a consequence, offers a very small maximum print size, but at least it prints quite faster than the competing Easythreed NANO.

FULCRUM Minibot 1.0 3D printer sells on GearBest for $139.90 shipped (pre-order) and used to be sold on Aliexpress (as early as January 2020) from Russia, but it’s not available anymore.
