So get on Artist-D KickStarter and become a backer and get your printer delivered in November. Remember, the kickstarter was only released Thursday so the first 500 units were taken in 4 days.

Main Features of the Jgmaker Artist D

JGMaker Artist D Features

IDEX Large Build Volume

No matter how you operate the JGMaker Artist D dual extruder 3D printer, the high standards of 3D printing models are achieved by this high-performing 3D printer. Its enormous size translates into generous dimensions: use its double extruders movement at 111 x 310 x 350 or its single extruder movement at 310 x 310 x 350. However you use it, this is the 3D printer that makes your creative spirit joyful.

Artist D Dual Extruder Diversity

The JGMaker Artist D is built with a dual extruder independent structure that allows you to do something innovative and spectacular. As a result, you can print two types of different materials, for example, hard and soft materials. Alternatively, two different colours on the same model.

In addition, since the two extruders are independent, when one extruder works, the other one stops in the non-working area. You can then be sure that the molten plastic flowing out of the extruder in the heating state won’t drip onto the model which will ensure the high quality of the model’s surface.

Extrusion Made Easy & Better

Featuring an innovative Extruder Extrusion Kit, the JGMaker Artist D allows you to easily and quickly remove the extruder, making it highly simple to install, repair and uninstall the plug. Forget about the complicated and lengthy process, Artist D’s optimized extrusion device is suitable for printing TPU flexible filaments.

Clean Internal Wiring

Too many cables are unsightly and can get in the way!. Seeing them getting entangled all the time is even worse. That’s why JGMaker made the Artist D a 3D printer that uses a simple internal wiring framework. It works well, and it’s easy to maintain without having too many wires getting in the way.

Printing Pause & SD Card Magic

Hit the Printing Pause option if you want the JGMaker Artist D to stop printing immediately during the printing process or if you need to change filaments of different colour or material. Just pause, refill, and resume. You can also resume printing if the SD card is removed accidentally. All you have to do is reinsert it and you can continue printing.

Artist D Direct Drive Extruder

Due to the short distance between the extruder and nozzle, less torque from the motor is required to push the filament. It is capable of handling a variety of materials including PLA, TPU, PETG, ABS, PVA, Wood, etc. It typically provides a more accurate extrusion and allows for faster retractions.

Thermal Run Away Protection

We totally understand how important safety is. This function will ensure your 3D printer stops sending power to heating elements in the event of overheating, It can prevent catastrophic fire hazards to your machine effectively.

Two-Step Modular Design

It requires no complications or special skills. The JGMaker Artist D allows for rapid assembly process for even the inexperienced! You can easily assemble it in only 5 minutes and then all you need to do is plug it in and switch it on.

Dual Clean Brush

Sometimes excessive filament at the nozzle could ruin your whole model because of lack of cleaning. Our clean brush will clean off unnecessary filament automatically so that you do not have to worry about filament leakage!.

JGmaker 32-Bit Silent Board

The JGMaker Artist D comes with a high-performance 32-bit silent stepper driver chip to make it function and print as perfectly and efficiently as you need it to. As a result, you can enjoy a quiet printing environment that leads you to pay more attention to design and stops the noise from disturbing you.

A Better Feeding System

The JGMaker Artist D is made as a higher quality printer that features a no-gap feeding system. In other words it makes the feeding and materials return processes smoother because the extrusion slider structure design makes the distance between the guide pipe and the extruder throat much closer and equipped with a cover. That translates into keeping blocking issues from occurring and keeping you safer with the device’s integrated protection.

JGMaker Flexible Magnetic Suction Matt Paste

Made of manganese steel, the JGMaker Artist D’s flexible magnetic suction matt paste adds convenience and stability to the printer’s operation while still being easy to remove from the model’s platform.

No Coding Issues

One of the defining aspects of the JGMaker Artist D is that you need not be a super expert in 3D printing technology to make the most of it. By supporting Marlin 2.0 open-source firmware, it especially suits the Artist D for secondary development and will let you work perfectly even if you don’t master its core code. This 3D printer is for makers, not for programmers!

IDEX Industrial Grade For DIY Enthusiasts

Whoever said that small-scale makers and DIY need to stick to amateur equipment couldn’t be more mistaken. The JGMaker Artist -D is built with industrial-grade parts – such as the guide slider. As a result, this delivers a smoother performance with less friction and higher precision.

Artist D Tutorials

Since Bill Gao joined JGMaker I have seen the company grow a lot more, bringing tutorials and live streams with them. There is not a lot of businesses that make 3D Printer tutorials to help their customers, but this 3D Printer manufacturer seems to be different.

JGMaker Artist D IDEX 3D Printer Reviews

Before we buy anything we tend to look at reviews and its best to look at them before backing any kickstarter project, below i will list some reviews of the JGmaker Artist D 3D Printer. With regards to the JGMaker Artist D Kickstarter, this means things could change whilst you wait for your IDEX 3D Printer. The way Kickstarter works are that before it ends the 3D printer manufacturer or anyone that creates a Kickstarter can get the community’s input to make it a far greater product by way of changing the hardware or software before the final product is released. As always, with Kickstarters, there is no guarantee that you will receive an end product. You are helping the manufacturer raise the funds in order to develop, manufacture and produce the final product of which you would receive as a reward for investing in them.

I will have a quick look at the JGmaker Artist D Reviews down bellow and mention some bullet points the reviewers say.

The 3D Print General Review

In This JG Maker Artist D Review I heard The 3D Print General stating that JGMaker plan on upgrading the EEProm Screen to be more user friendly, you may get a better screen. The fans are noisy This is another thing the manufacturer let this reviewer know that they will fix by the time you receive your Artis D. Its great that JGMaker is listening to the reviewers.

  • Really Strong Frame Frame With Linear Rail For X AXIS
Old EEprom Screen
  • Clear Instructions
The Fans Are Lounder Than The Average 3D Printer
  • IDEX Best Way For Dual extrusion
The Hot End Is Not All Metal
  • Clear Instructions
Extruders dont have any Gear ratio
  • Purge Buckets
Not The Fastest At Heating
  • Dual Independent Extruder Hotend IDEX Worked First Try
One Hot End Printing 5 Degrees Less
  • Easy 3D Printer Nozzle Removal
  • Big Build Volume
  • Early bird and JGMAker Artist D MSRP Price 599$

The 3D Print General Conclusion

If you can actually get the Artist D at 339$, you can ignore every single one of those cons since i cant expect a 3D printer to have all of these features for that price. Remember that this is about the same price as the original Creality CR10 which does not have any of the features that the Artist-D offers. Jgmaker estimate the shipping to be November 20/20 which is a great turnaround time for a kickstarter, remember there has been failed kickstarters in the past where backers lost their money. He considers this wont be the case for this manufacturer because he has the machine before the kickstarter has even launched but always be cautios.
