Sharebot is active in the educational world with its Sharbot Academy Division, which supports schools and teachers, helping them educate students to the Industry 4.0. Sharebot Academy offers courses, lectures, workshops, and didactic papers/documents for everyone interested in knowing and using 3D printing.
Sharebot Kiwi-3D, Next Generation, and 42 printers are the perfect tools to start learning all the secrets of 3D printing; transforming every school desk in a personal creation center. The printers are based on Arduino motherboards and are coming from the open philosophy, allowing compatibility with all the most slicing software. Every print setting can be modified so that it’s possible to use different materials and filaments like PLA and ABS or technical ones like TPU, NYLON, and NYLON-CARBON.
Sharebot Kiwi-3D is a small, craft 3D printer dedicated to schools, students, hobbysts and young professionals who want to start working with 3D printing technology using a solid, rapid, easy to use and reliable tool with small size that can be used in every working environmet. The printer has also the tipical and elegant “Made in Italy” design.
Sharebot Kiwi-3D has a building area of 140x100x100 mm; it uses FFF (Fused Filament Fabrication) technology to realize functional objects, models and prototypes with great quality. Kiwi-3D comes from the Sharebot NG development and it has the aim to transform every desk in a personal creativity center.
- Building area: 140 x 100 x 100 mm
- Resolution: 0.1 mm
- Materials: PLA-S
Sharebot NG, Next Generation, is a professional and economic 3D printer. Sharebot NG is based on FFF (Fused Filament Fabrication) 3D printing technology.
The 3D printer is a working tool for professionals; it is a solid, Made in Italy and easy to use machine that can be used in many different working areas. This is the third generation 3D printers produced by Sharebot thanks its great experience and know-how and it is designed to be used by professionals looking for a great reliability printer.
- Building Area: 250 x 200 x 200 mm
- Resolution: 0.1 mm
- Material: PLA-S, ABSolute, WOOD, TPU, NYLON-CARBON, NYLON-GLASS
Sharebot 42 is the fourth generation 3D printer which uses FFF (Fused Filament Fabrication) technology to realize professional prototypes and models with the highest printing quality and precision.
The autocalibration system of the innovative printing bed with Easy Detach System allows the professional to start printing without any problem: the user have the full control on every printing setting thanks to the 3.2″ LCD touch screen display.
- Building area: 250 x 220 x 200 mm
- Z Resolution: 50 micron
- Remote Management via Sharebox3D: integrated
- Materials: PLA-S, ABSolute, ABS-HF, NYLON-CARBON, NYLON-GLASS, TPU
Once completed, the STL file needs to be processed by a piece of software called a “slicer” which converts the model into a series of thin layers and produces a G-code file containing instructions tailored to a specific type of 3D printer (FDM printers). This G-code file can then be printed with 3D printing client software (which loads the G-code, and uses it to instruct the 3D printer during the 3D printing process).
Construction of a model with contemporary methods can take anywhere from several hours to several days, depending on the method used and the size and complexity of the model. Additive systems can typically reduce this time to a few hours, although it varies widely depending on the type of machine used and the size and number of models being produced simultaneously.
Sharebot provides support and learning course on there two slicing software:
- Slic3r, worldwide most used and common open-source slicing software.
- Simplify3D, a high quality slicing software mainly used by professional users.
