Plybot is shaking up the world of 3D printing by combining software with hardware to create the ultimate 3D printing experience.
Plybot is totally unique. They make 3D printing simple, quiet and fun for people of all ages. Arms that give bigger and better prints, whilst minimizing desk space. Plybot’s arms are one-of-a-kind, and aren’t just for show! Aside from looking human, the vastly simplified arm design allows it to print bigger, faster, and more reliably.
Anyone who has experience with 3D printers knows just how loud they can be – they are changing that. By utilizing the latest advancements in motor drivers, they specifically designed Plybot to deliver the most soundless experience possible. The result? A near-silent 3D printer.
The first ever single click prints. Plybot has its very own app, available on iOS and Android. Use it to control your Plybot, find objects to print, and order new filament and accessories for your machine. If you want to use your own software, they won’t restrict you, but for those of you that just want something that works out of the box – One-Click printing is finally here! They don’t restrict you to using only their Plybot App. You can use all of your favorite applications to send files to the Plybot printer over Wifi or USB.
Print with multiple filament types. Although the majority of their users are likely to use PLA, Plybot can handle a wide range of filament types. Here is a selection of the filament types you may wish to use on your Plybot: PLA, ABS, PETG, PETT, ASA, Polypropylene, TPE, PCTPE, Soft PLA, Semi-flexible TPU, Laybrick, Wood, Carbon, Proto-pasta.
They feel it’s important to demonstrate the quality of their prints, with the industry-standard #3DBenchy. All of the potential pitfalls of a 3D printer can be exposed in this cute little print – overhangs, over extrusion, and warping alike. No matter what, you click it, Plybot will print it!

They’re giving their Kickstarter backers a limited edition, matte black Plybot: a colorway made specifically for the first-ever Plybot launch. Each printer comes with a selection of PLA filament reels, cables that allow you to connect to the printer via USB (should you not wish to use Wi-Fi), and a link to download the Plybot app. Within minutes of opening the box you’ll be making your first print!
Manufacturing your Plybot locally is important to them. By keeping manufacturing close to their home, they keep a keen eye on the quality, and ensure that there are minimal production delays. Their team has experience in building thousands of printers here before, and they’re all set to do it again!
