101 Hero is a printer that comes with a Plastic frame and a non-heated glass print bed. Considering the price at which the printer is available in the market, it is commendable that it allows you to print not only with PLA but with ABS and other plastics too. The mechanism of this 3D printer is dependent on three small motors that are originally destined for 3D printing pens.
Hobbyists who are yet to decide whether they are going to practice 3D printing for the rest of the lives or not are going to love the way in which the 3D printer prints. Being an open printer, you are relieved from the difficulty in efforts that you have to undergo in closed 3D printers.
Seeing the price at which it is available in the market you will wonder about how much the 3D printing technology has progressed in general. If you aren’t someone who has an introduction to 3D printing technology, you almost would immediately take this as some sort of a con. But it isn’t a con! 3D Printers, with such great functionality and impressive build volume, are available at such a low price for real.
