What is mGiraffe?
mGiraffe is a new type of delta 3D printer DIY kit based on Makeblock platform. Consisting of an open hexagon linkage structure and powerful electronic control system, mGiraffe is devoted to bring you extraordinary 3D printing experience.
A DIY 3D printer all built by yourself to experience the charm of 3D printing;
Animated assembling manual create a rich user experience;
Automatic leveling system prepares you to start 3D printing quickly;
Mechanical structure combining with powerful electronic modules for better print performance.
Stable Mechanical Structure
A slider beam2424 made by heavy-duty aluminum alloy combining with a hexagon linkage forms the main structure of mGiraffe. It is a simple yet powerful structure that helps perform visible 3D printing at 360 degrees.
Powerful Main Control Board-MegaPi
mGiraffe uses a powerful main control board called MegaPi which is powered by Mega2560 chip. Combining with specially designed shield expansion boards, MegaPi is capable of driving three stepper motors, one extruder, and other electronic modules.
The non-contact photoelectric limit switch and the metal proximity switch of mGiraffe makes it possible for position compensation of X-axis, Y-axis and Z-axis to realize leveling. mGiraffe was created to be as easy to use as possible, letting you focus on creating and enjoying your prints instead of spending time tweaking and troubleshooting the machine.
Animated Assembling Manual
Every mGiraffe features an animated manual in the SD card for easy DIY assembling. It eliminates lots of troubles during assembly and ensures you assemble the mechanical parts and plug-in electronic modules in a correct way.
High-Quality 3D Printing
mGiraffe's motion is made up of a guide-rail slide and a timing belt, ensuring better print performance. 0.1-0.3mm layer resolution accelerates the design process by enabling professional-quality, high-resolution prototypes and models to be created right at your desk.
