Rat Rig introduces new open source 3D printer V-Core 4

3D printing manufacturer Rat Rig has announced the latest iteration of its successful V-Core 3D printer. The fourth generation, called V-Core 4, comes with a number of upgrades and innovations.

The new 3D printer comes in three sizes. There are models with 300x300x300m, 400x400x400 and 500x500x500. The system offers an IDEX mode, which enables 3D printing with two tool heads simultaneously. This offers the possibility of multi-material printing and the ability to produce two objects simultaneously.

Another important feature is the new “Beacon” technology for precise automatic calibration of the Z-axis with each print bed. The system delivers fast and accurate results through contact measurement. The V-Core 4 also scores with an extremely rigid and low-resonance metal frame, linear guides on all axes and new, particularly robust 8 mm thick print beds on the larger models.

In addition to the full kit, there are also configurable kits for the 3D printer. Setup should be easy and there are detailed instructions. The V-Core 4 profiles are included with the most important slicers such as OrcaSlicer and PrusaSlicer. In collaboration with Helge Keck, a multi-material module upgrade for the printer will also be available soon.

The 3D printer can be pre-ordered on the official website. Prices start from 1199.99 euros for a complete kit. The complete documentation of the V-Core 4 can be found here.
