“To make these advantages even more accessible, we’ve launched an e-commerce site for FabPro 1000. We encourage everyone to visit the site, check out the specs and pricing, and order their FabPro 1000 today,” adds Schultz when speaking about how the e-commerce site has made it easier for people to buy this 3D printer.
The FabPro 1000 has been receiving rave reviews from its users. One such user is Simon Walker, the owner of Artforge, a company which designs and manufactures highly accurate collectible miniatures and unique jewelry.
“All in all, you get a lot more for your money with the FabPro 1000 than other entry-level 3D printing solutions,” says Simon Walker when explaining how he has benefited from using the FabPro 1000.
“The software is a good example. You import the design, the 3D Sprint software automatically identifies and fixes most problems, and adds the automatic support structures. Then you can do what you like – scale the design, create mirror images, copy it, change the support structures, etc. and then send the file to the print queue. It’s easy to use, intuitive and quiet – and that’s what people want,” concludes Walker.
