Leapfrog

BIGGER, FASTER, STRONGER

We chose the Leapfrog line because of it’s wide range of printers, their speed and ability to print so many materials. With it’s optional print head, the Bolt can print any materials up to 360 degree C, beating the competition by far. And check out the Creatr HS XL with a 23.2″ print height at just $5599. Not large enough? The XCEL can print in PLA up to 7.5 feet tall! That’s tall enough to print Shaquille O’Neil full sized.

Pictures just don’t do these printers justice. They are beasts in person.
