Airwolf 3-D announced early this week that it has added an entry-level 3D printer-- the AW3D HDL-- for the professional market, that costs $2,295.00.
All 3D printers are made in America, manufactured in the company’s 12,000 sq. ft. facility in Costa Mesa, Calif.
The target market for the printer is educators and professionals that have limited budgets
“The AW3D HDL is not a toy for hobbyists,” stated Erick Wolf, Airwolf 3D founder and chairman. “It’s a serious professional 3-D printer built in response to customers asking for a high-quality unit at an aggressive price point. The only difference between it and our most advanced 3-D printer is the absence of technically advanced features, which can easily be added as needs and budgets dictate.”
Print media include biodegradable PLA, and PLA variants such as Soft PLA, LayBrick, LayWood, and BronzeFill as well as TPE and TPU filaments.
As their requirements grow, however, the HDL’s modular design keeps pace, allowing users to gradually add capabilities such as the jam-resistant JRx hot end or dual hot-end that print engineering-grade filaments like polycarbonate and Bridge nylon.
For software support, Airwolf 3D offers complimentary MatterControl PRO for organizing and managing all 3D prints. To help educators introduce students to 3D printing, Airwolf 3D also offers lesson plans on its website.
