At Type A Machines, we do not sell 3D printers as kits for a few different reasons. 3D printer kits can offer a great learning experience for the user; they give you the chance to troubleshoot and upgrade parts on your own, but they are not for everyone. Kits can also be tough to calibrate and are often less user friendly than pre-assembled printers. Our mission is to create a 3D printer that is reliable and effective. Type A Machines was founded when the reprap-style printer was truly starting to gain prominence in the public eye and we support that style of additive manufacturing but, with safety being a factor, choose not to offer a kit option.
