Product Description

* This product is NOT COMPATIBLE with the newest Printrbot Simple Maker’s Kit 1405

The Printrbot Simple XL Upgrade Kit is an incredibly big deal for this small printer.  It allows your Simple to print  185mm x 100mm x165mm.  Laser cut wood pieces are also included to assemble the tower, spool coaster, and small filament spool.  The tower provides increased rigidity as well as portability with removable wider stance feet and a cut out handle.  We highly suggest purchasing the metal bed for the build volume upgrade  as well (limited stock available).

If you’re doing a hack and using a heated bed, you may also wish to purchase a thermistor with cable.

Simple XL Upgrade Kit Includes:

2:  13″ smooth rods

1:  10.5″ acme rod

2:  laser cut plates (print platform and print bed)

12:  zip ties

1:  extra string

1:  Y-motor extension

10: laser cut wood pieces for the tower and spool

1: Hardware bag for the tower

Note:  Laser cut wood is standard 1/4″ (6mm) thick

Assembly is required.
