The DigiLab 3D40-FLX joins the DigiLab 3D45 in the lineup from U.S. 3D printing manufacturer Dremel Corporation, a subsidiary of Robert Bosch GmbH. This is a second-generation 3D printer from Dremel that is aimed at both 3D printing beginners and established experts. Introduced to the market in 2016, the DigiLab 3D40-FLX desktop 3D printer uses fusion layering technology and is compatible with PLA materials. The manufacturer claims that this is an extremely user-friendly 3D printer. It bases this on the fact that users can start printing themselves within just a few minutes of unboxing the printer, which also speaks to the DigiLab 3D40-FLX’s ease of setup.
