The Tevo Tarantula is a desktop 3D printer based on the Prusa i3 design. It features a starting build area of 200 x 200 x 200mm with an optional increase to 200 x 280 x 200mm. The Tarantula can print in a variety of plastics and has a heated build plate.
Tevo Tarantula -Prusa i3 3D printer features automatic bed leveling (optional) and bigger bed (optional). The auto-leveling version uses a proximity sensor to detect the aluminum print bed where the normal version of the printer uses a micro-switch to detect the end of travel for the Z-Axis movement (vertical limits).
The Aluminum Print Bed plate is 200mm X 200X 200mm - the travel for the build plate is limited by the physical dimensions of the frame itself and that is around 220 mm for the X-axis (side to side), 260-270mm for the Y-axis (front to back) and around 200mm for the Z-Axis (up and down). Model – Complete DIY Kit (Unassembled).
Simple and sturdy construction, easy to assemble with good performance and quality. Better than reprap prusa i3.
