Cheetah Pro 3D Printer

The Cheetah Pro 3D printer is truly unique. It prints sizable items, cheaply at a good speed. You can now 3D print real life functioning products and décor items in plastic. We have printed items from lawn mower and vacuum cleaner bodies, wearable slip on shoes to replica elephant tusks. See more item in the Gallery. 

 

The actual volume of the printing area is 1 cubic meter. As it utilizes plastic granules instead of filament, the cost of printing is reduced substantially if compared to traditional printers, by as much as a factor of 10.

 

We have access to fantastically creative artists who can colour or decorate your printed product to your specifications.

Your Product:

If you have a product that you think can be 3d printed on the Cheetah, but is not sure, send us an e-mail and the part in some CAD or STL format, and we can tell you what the cost would be, i.e. what the printing time will be, and what the material cost will be.   We can quote you on that, and even print a prototype for you, at the quoted price.  You can then test it, change it etc, and go into small scale production, printing your products on our machines. When you are sure that your 3d printed model is working in the market, then you can buy a Cheetah. Various levels of Technical Assistance from our side can then be negotiated for the future.
