TwoTrees SK1 review – A CoreXY 3D printer with high printing speeds


TwoTrees SK1 is an FDM 3D printer with a working space of 256 x 256 x 256 mm and a CoreXY system that may print 3 to five occasions quicker than a typical 3D printer. The actions of a CoreXY 3D printer are achieved by transferring two motors concurrently. The TwoTrees SK1 CoreXY 3D printer can print at a most velocity of 700 mm/s and options automated Z-Tilt base leveling with a 36-point mesh mattress. The print head makes use of a dual-gear direct extruder to feed the filament on to the nozzle and the nozzle helps as much as 300 levels Celsius. The printer additionally comes preloaded with the favored Klipper firmware.

Printing plate

A PEI magnetic sheet will ensure that the workpiece sticks firmly in place and doesn’t fall off throughout printing. It may be used with a spread of plastic supplies and is appropriate for printing with small floor areas or workpieces that require a clean backside floor. As soon as the print is completed, the workpiece will come off simply with out having to make use of instruments to take it out.

Utilizing the PuraSlicer program with the TwoTress SK1 3D printer

PuraSlider set up and SK1 configuration

3D fashions have to be transformed into G-Code earlier than printing. That is completed by a slicer program, and we are going to use the PrusaSlicer program (model supplied by TwoTrees) on this assessment.

PrusaSlicer

The very first thing to do is to import a configuration file for the 3D printer via File >>> Import >>> Import Config Bundle within the prime menu.

PrusaSlider Import Config Bundle

Choose the file named PrusaSlicer_config_bundle.ini then click on “Open”.  You’ll discover the file on the microSD card supplied with the 3D printer or on MediaFire.

Config PrusaSlicer

The SK1 3D printer is efficiently configured within the PrusaSlicer program.

Changing 3D information to G-Code

We are able to now import a 3D mannequin file by clicking on the Add icon as proven within the screenshot under.

PrusaSlicer Add File Model 3D
Choose the 3D mannequin file with extension STL, 3MF, STEP, OBJ, AMF, or PRUSA, then click on on “Open”. We chosen “EiffelTower.stl” for our check.

Open File Eiffel Tower STL sample

PrusaSlicer will then show a 3D illustration of the mannequin on the printing plate.

We are able to set the print decision to be 0.08, 0.12, 0.16, 0.20, 0.24, or 0.28mm which is able to impression the standard of the pattern and printing time.

PrusaSlicer Setting Layer

As soon as that is completed, we will click on on “Slice now” to start processing the file.

Printing samples with the TwoTrees SK1 CoreXY 3D printer

Eiffel Tower mannequin

Materials: PLA; layer: 0.28 mm; infill: 15%; velocity: 200 mm/s; journey: 500 mm/s

TwoTrees SK1 CoreXY 3D Printer sample Eiffel Tower

Print time: 3 hours 10 minutes

Calibration dice with totally different resolutions

An XYZ 20mm calibration dice was printed with the next parameters – materials: PLA; layer: 0.08 to 0.28 mm; infill: 20%; velocity: 200 mm/s; journey: 700 mm/s

TwoTrees SK1 3D Printer Layer Test Print Resolutions

A visible inspection doesn’t reveal any apparent variations between totally different layer thicknesses.

Benchy mannequin printed at most velocity

We additionally printed a Benchy at most velocity (700mm/s).

Materials: PLA; layer: 0.20 mm; infill: 25%; velocity: 700 mm/s; journey: 700 mm/s

Benchy high speed printing CoreXY 3D printer

Print time: 18 minutes.

The ensuing print is just not too dangerous and far quicker than Karl’s velocity printing experiment with the Longer LK5 Professional 3D printer the place he might print the Benchy in 37 minutes after some optimization and a few “dishonest” (0.3mm thickness), whereas his 0.2mm print would take properly over 45 minutes. So CoreXY 3D printers clearly have the higher hand in the case of velocity printing with out sacrificing the standard an excessive amount of if in any respect.

Video assessment of the TwoTrees SK1 CoreXY 3D printer

Conclusion

The TwoTrees SK1 3D printer works properly and permits spectacular speeds due to its CoreXY design that allows speeds as much as 700mms which are a number of occasions quicker than conventional FDM 3D printer, however for example, a Benchy may very well be printed in 18 minutes utilizing a 0.2mm layer.

The Z-Tilt auto-calibration characteristic is handy to make use of and lowers the danger of points throughout printing. The SK1 3D printer has an excellent construct high quality with a stable construction that helps the motion of the X/Y axis. The Klipper firmware additionally helps with delivering good high quality prints and a well-known consumer interface enabling the add of G-Code information over WiFi. The 3D printer is appropriate for small companies, fanatics, and even the classroom.

We wish to thank TwoTrees for sending us the SK1 CoreXY 3D printer for assessment. The 3D printer might be bought for $499 on TwoTrees’ on-line retailer, on Aliexpress, they usually even have an Amazon retailer, however the printer is just not listed there simply but.
