Orbital Composites has produced a compelling 3D printer. It works with the same materials and software as the World's leading 3D printers.
STL files may be sliced using Cura or Simplify3D. Programming The Basic 3D Printer is identical to programming any desktop 3D printer.
The Basic Printer uses the same COTS 3D printing filaments as the rest of the FFF industry.
Orbital has created The Basic 3D printer that can grow with you.
FFF 3D Printing
The Basic 3D Printer is just another Fused Filament Fabrication(FFF) printer. It uses the standard 1.75mm and 2.85mm filaments that the industry loves. While Orbital creates its own preferred materials, the Orb-S printer also uses open sourced materials.

You may already know how to program Your 3D Printer.
This Basic 3D printer uses a robotic motion system. Robotic integration makes the Orb-S unique. Robots are traditionally very challenging to operate. Orbital has simplified the robot problem down to its essence: simple programming and carefree operation.
