Leapfrog A-01-75 overview

  • 1Description

The Creatr XL Dual Extruder 3D Printer from Leapfrog features dual extruders that support two-color and two-material printing up to a remarkably tall build size of 7.9 x 10.6 x 23.6". Using a single extruder allows you to print even larger - 9.1 x 10.6 x 23.6". The heated build plate supports printing with both ABS and PLA filaments, as well a dissolvable plastic called PVA, and even Nylon and Brick filaments. Leapfrog manufactures both ABS and PLA filaments in a range of about a dozen colors for use with the Creatr XL, which allows you to produce prints in over 100 color combinations. The Creatr XL can print at resolutions as fine as 50 microns for highly detailed results, or as coarse as 350 microns when great precision is not required.

The Creatr XL 3D Printer ships fully-assembled and pre-calibrated, and requires only two software downloads to operate, both of which are available for free on Leapfrog's website. The Creatr XL is constructed of durable laser-cut aluminum, and is compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems.

Exceptionally Tall Build Volume
The most striking feature of the Creatr XL is its ability to print objects up to almost two feet tall. This triples the the build height of the regular Creatr 3D printer, expanding the range of applications possible with home 3D printing.
Dual Extruders & Five Materials
Two nozzles on the Creatr XL allow you to not only print with two colors in over one hundred color combinations, but also enable you to print with more than one material at a time. A convenient use for this feature would be to print a complicated design with sturdy ABS filament, while using the second extruder to print supporting material in PLA or PVA plastics, which can then be dissolved for removal. Whereas breaking away ABS-printed support material would leave marks on your 3D prints, dissolving the supporting material will instead result in a smooth surface.

The Creatr XL is also compatible with two other Exotic Filaments from Leapfrog: Nylon filament can withstand more pressure than ABS and PLA plastics, and can be dyed after printing for more creative possibilities. Brick filament contains small brick fibers, which makes your 3D print look like it is made from sandstone.
Durable Aluminum
The Leapfrog Creatr XL is made of laser-cut aluminum parts, engineered to ensure that the accuracy of the printer is unaffected by temperature changes. Instead of using the usual plastic or wood, the Creatr XL's sturdy aluminum frame was designed to provide durability that does not diminish over time.
Print Out of the Box
The 3D printer is fully assembled and pre-calibrated when it arrives at your doorstep. You will need to install one software program for the conversion of your design from a 3D software STL-file to a printable file (G-code), and another to control the printer. Both are available free of charge on the Leapfrog website.

    Leapfrog A-01-75 reviews

    Creatr XL Dual Extruder 3D Printer is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from poor execution of a expanded platform we wanted to use the product for rapid scaled down prototypes for various needs. this system arrived well packaged. it didn't print right out of the box it needed alot of finessing, PLA was fairly simple but the abs was a real trick. after that it did its job fairly well. the problems however I feel out way the rest of it, I also love the simplyfy3d software, this however doesn't belong to leapfrog..... 1. filament always got stuck so I rerouted the lines to go outside of the box. this fixed it 2. I had to slow the motor speed down to about half of normal speed because the structure vibrates so bad see it builds most of its stuff on the top where the manufacture has the least about of rigidity in principle they wanted a taller build structure so the made it taller with little regard to the flex of the aluminum frame 3. the sides are a plastic with a thin sheet of aluminum on them, they are only held on by 4 yes only 4 tiny screws, the panels flex easy and provide very little if any rigidity. 4. the temperatures reported are not what they really are, most of my temps have to be set to the max of the recommended of material to get good prints. 5. the co-extruder seems like a good idea but the second head seems to interfere more then help. 6. the connections are all crimped not soldered two of the crimps connections heated up and melted the insulator. 7. one axis (front to back) is controlled by two separate motors, the home switch is only on one side this allows that axis to be slightly skewed. it should either have two homing switches or one motor driving it. 8. one homing switch was installed backwards 9. today the second motor that drives the front to back failed today, it made a mess. I was thinking that it would be a quailty product its a failure, with some modifications it could be good. I have sent emails to support we will see how that goes......
