Sharebot NG, Next Generation, is a professional and economic 3D printer available from €1500. 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.
Sharebot NG has an integrated heated printing plate with a 250x200x200 mm building area with a 0.04 mm nozzle: this features allow to work with different filaments like PLA-S (special PLA material developed by Sharebot, economic and easy to use), ABS-HF (a strong and professional-oriented ABS filament) and technical materials like Nylon-Carbon (charged with nylon and carbon, strong and resistant), TPU (a polyurethane, elastic and with memory form) and Poly.
Sharebot NG has an LCD screen dedicated to the printer operation management: once the SD card is inserted, the user can set up or modify any printing setting and mange the printing peocess thanks to the smart control knob.
The 3D printer is available in two model: mono or double extruder. The double extruder allows to print with two different materials on the same prototype, giving to the professional user the possibiliy to mix filament with different features. Sharebot Academy has a wide choice of 3D printing courses dedicated to learn all the Sharebot NG secrets so that the user can understand how to use the printer correctly.
Sharebot NG has the CE certification and it is Made in Italy.

Applications and Case Histories
Rapid Prototyping – 3D printing bow for professional sports
Paolo Sabbioni, founder of AT Sport, realizes in carbon fiber Olympic and paralympic bows with a tubular structure dedicated to high level athletes, like the Italian archers who took part at Beijing Olympic Games in 2008 achieving brilliant results (the team made up of 3 athletes, Ilario Di Buò, Marco Galiazzo and Mauro Nespoli, gains a silver medal in the final) and at London Paralympic Games in 2012 (Oscar De Pellegrin won the gold medal in individual competition).
Paolo Sabbioni has designed all the different variations of Fiberbow using a 3D software and an analysis of completed elements: at a later stage, the bow will be realized adding different slices of pre-impregnated carbon fiber shaped through a mold in the form of autoclave. The riser is lighter, twisting resistant and able to increase the speed of the arrow which is coming out from the bow.
Rapid Prototyping – Idkit: 3D printed toys
Adama Shillito, creative director and founder of Idkid, a company specialized in toys design, began to print 3D prototypes a year ago, when he decided to buy a Sharebot NG 3D printer. Always interested in research of innovative technologichal solutions which allow to add the perfect functionality to a good design, Adam Shillito has printed more than 100 pieces and 20 real toys.
Thanks to 3D FFF technology Idkid has realized a lot of prototypes thought for a different categories of moving toys: push scooters, tricycle, camion, tractors and escavators, printing the wheels directly with Sharebot NG.
Desktop 3D printerstrong>Sharebot Next Generation is the ideal tool for schools and young students who want to start their path with 3D printing technology with an easy to use, open source, crafty 3D printer. NG is based on an Arduino motherboard and it’s fully compatible with all the main 3D printing software.
The printer can be installed in every environment and will tranforsm your desk (or class) into a personal creation center, allowing you to realize projects and prototypes in just few hours. The user can modifty and customize all the main printing parameters and it’s fully compatible with many filament thanks to the heated printing bed.
PLA’s the most used 3D printing material, composed by a thermoplastic polymer derivated from corn and it’s biodegradable. PLA’s resistant and solid (avoiding the warping effect during the printing process) without retraction and deformation. Available in a lot of different colors, it doesn’t release any smell and it can be extruded at lower temperatures than any other material without having to heat the printing bed.
ABSolute® is a new generation ABS filament developed to give the best functioning material to the professional user. During the printing process there is no warpring effect and no retraction of the filament on the printing plate, avoiding any failure of your process. ABSolute® is the perfect materia for professsionals looking for high impact resistance and high temperature.
It is an elastic polymeric material that could be stretched and forced without damaging it: TPU will always come back to its original form. The filament is available in a lot of different colors and during the printing process it doesn’t give off any smell. You can find on our website a tutorial in order to learn how to print it.
Sharebot WOOD 3D printing filament is a mixture of modified PLA charged with true micronized wood powder. WOOD is printed at low temperatures and it can be easily carved with sand papers or tumbling machines after the printing process. Its porous texture allows to print it without using any primer so that the print can adhere on it.
Nylon-Glass is a material composed by a mix of nylon and glass fibers. The material allows to print precisie models with an excelent surface definition. It can be used in place of the common ABS thanks to its high resistance: our testers used it to realize mechanical functioning spare parts and prototypes. Because of its elastic components, the Nylon-Glass is very flexible and it can be bended without reaching the breaking point.DATA SHEET
Nylon-Carbon is a high quality material. It’s composed by 2 different fibres: nylon and carbon. Nylon gives to the filament a high resistance while carbon gives lightness, making it very easy to print. The printed object are resistant, with opaque black color, slightly rough and with a light metallic look. Nylon-Carbon is ideal for manufacturing use.DATA SHEET
PPis our easy to print general purpose low density Polypropylene. PP has been developed for optical clarity while maintaining mechanical performance and a superb layer adhesion. PP high stretch ability, decent flexibility and chemical/fatigue resistance makes it suitable for a variety of household articles and containers. PP can also be used for engineering articles such as living-hinges and snap-fit fastener materials. It’s a cost-effective all round filament suitable for a broad variety of needs.
