The Essentials Pack is the perfect way to kickstart your 3D printing journey with your BCN3D Epsilon 3D printer. This pack includes a selection of spools of filaments in various materials (PLA, ABS and BVOH), allowing you to experiment and find the best one for your applications. The pack also includes a Hotend with a 0.6mm nozzle size, allowing you to print more resistant parts or print quicker. With the Essentials Pack, you can confidently explore the possibilities of 3D printing and take your skills to the next level.
ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) is one of the most common technical materials in several industries around the globe. It’s an engineering material which combines rigidity and resistance to impacts. It is the ideal material for technical applications and moving parts.
PLA (Polylactic Acid) is a biodegradable, sustainable and food safe polymer made from organic sources.It is the most common used filament in FFF 3D printers for its ease of use and wide range of applications, specially those not mechanically or thermally demanding. Definitely a good starting point to learn about the 3D Printing manufacturing process.
BVOH (Butenediol vinyl alcohol copolymer) is a water-soluble thermoplastic optimized for the FFF manufacturing process. Our BVOH extends the compatibility with most of BCN3D filaments and can be easily printed to create the support and then dissolved with ordinary water.
Alongside these filaments, you’ll find 2 Magigoo Original adhesive to ensure the printed parts stick to the glass printing surface and 2 Hotend with a 0.6mm nozzle size. The hotends included with the BCN3D Epsilon are 0.4mm. These 2 hotends of 0.6mm will allow you to experiment with a big nozzle size. Small nozzles are ideal for detailed models. Instead, big nozzles allow to fabricate more resistant parts or for rapid prints.
The size of the hotend used has direct effects, not only on the printing speed and the printed detail, but also on the strength of the 3D printed part. That’s why choosing the right hotend size for each application is crucial in order to fabricate high quality parts within the shortest possible time.
To sum up, you’ll receive:
- 2x ABS 2.85ø/750g
- 2x PLA 2.85ø/750g
- 2x BVOH NATURAL 2.85ø/500g
- 2x Hotend 0.6mm
- 2x Magigoo Original adhesive
