This year marked the 120th Canton Fair in Guangzhou after almost 60 years exhibiting the best trade goods China has to offer to international buyers. The fair covers everything from food and drink, to machinery, to textiles, and for the most part of October, our 3D printing friends Winbo have been busy showing off their latest Super Helper range to lots of happy customers.
To give our readers more of insight as to why everyone seems so excited about the new Super Helper printers, 3DPI have more of a breakdown of what they have to offer.
As you can see from the pictures above of buyers holding the Super Helpers, each model is designed to be portable: they have a handle by the spool, and are relatively lightweight. In addition, Winbo’s PLA comes in 13 different colors, including rarely seen multi-color and magic-color spools that are handy for creating striking products and gradients.
A lot of the parts of a Super Helper are also available to buy separately, so if it breaks, you can fix it, and at a relatively low cost: one of the most expensive parts to replace, the main control board, is available for only $79.99. As they provide this service for all of their current models, we expect more spare parts will get added over time. A lot of the readily available parts for other printers are also compatible with the Super Helper.
And finally, it helps that the basic 3 in 1 model (The Super Helper SH105L) comes in at an astonishing $199 – undercutting most other 3D printers on the market, let alone those with laser cutting and engraving capabilities.
Until we get our hands on one, of course we can’t give an accurate account of the Super Helper capabilities, but when it comes from a company with a reputable 21 years in the manufacturing business, and all we keep seeing from them is good things, to say we’re excited is certainly an understatement.
