SK1: New, fast 3D printer

Manufacturer Two Trees has a new 3D printer on offer. The open model has an exceptional design and a dual-speed extruder and can also be operated wirelessly.

The SK1 is a new 3D printer from the manufacturer Two Trees and is available now. The company relies on a rather unusual design: it is not the print head itself that moves up and down, but the print bed. Leveling the print bed is therefore not only limited to detecting deviations, but it should also be possible to align it. Specifically, the height of the print bed can be controlled using three independent motors. According to Two Trees, leveling is done using 36 calibration points.

With dimensions of 400 x 400 x 530 millimeters, the SK1 can print on an area of ​​256 x 256 x 256 millimeters. The high printing speed, which is stated to be up to 700 mm/s, is heavily advertised. Such high print speeds also require compromises in print quality. On the other hand, high printing speed can be very useful for quickly producing various design prototypes.

A dual-speed extruder is installed, which means the actual printing nozzle can be heated to up to 300° C in just 30 seconds. The supported printing materials range from PLA, PETG, PC to ABS. Users should note that this is an open 3D printer, which means that potentially harmful exhaust gases can escape. A 4.3-inch touchscreen is installed, but remote control via WLAN on a laptop should be possible.

The SK1 Core is available now for $575. Customers should inform themselves about possible shipping costs and import duties.

I have been working as a journalist for over 10 years, most of them in the technology sector. I have worked for Tom’s Hardware and ComputerBase, among others, and have been working for Notebookcheck since 2017. My current focus is particularly on mini PCs and single-board computers like the Raspberry Pi – compact systems with a lot of potential. I also have a soft spot for wearables of all kinds, especially smartwatches. My main job is as a laboratory engineer, which is why I am no stranger to scientific relationships or the interpretation of complex measurements.

Growing up in regional Australia, I was introduced to computers in my early teens after a broken leg suffered in a soccer game temporarily forced me to live mostly indoors. Soon after, I was building my own systems. I now live in Germany after moving here in 2014, where I study philosophy and anthropology. I am particularly fascinated by how computer technology has fundamentally and dramatically changed human culture and how it continues to do so.
