German RepRap Neo 3D Printer Review

German RepRap NEO – 3D Printer is a smooth and easy-to-use 3D printer launched in 2014 by German RepRap GmbH, a German company located near Munich.

The company is renowned for high quality 3D printers and has manufactured printers of various sizes in a price range of between Ä 699 and Ä 5700. NEO – 3D Printer belongs to the smaller and more advantageous models, making it a machine that is perfect for home use.

This machine has become very popular due to its speed and relatively large building volume. It is also very easy to use. The printer is ready to use immediately when removed from the package.

All you need to do is connect the printer to the computer via the USB port and download the print file.

German RepRap NEO – The 3D printer can print objects with 0.1 millimeter resolution.

The machine itself is 330 x 330 x 330 mm, but as much of it is taken up by the material as it is made, it means that the 3D printing can be up to 150 x 150 x 150 mm.

The machine is relatively fast and prints at a speed of 15 square millimeters per second.


The model is small and easy to build. It weighs only 6 kg, which makes it relatively easy to move with only hands.

The product is the first from German RepRap GmbH which does not consist of separate parts that must be assembled before use. The machine has a smooth design and a stable chassis.The machine is also equipped with a touch screen.

Material and filament

The printer uses plastic components with a diameter of 1.75 mm to print objects that can have dimensions of up to 150 x 150 x 150 mm. The filament material is PLA, which is a biologically produced plastic.

It can not handle as high temperatures as ABS, but generally used to use most of the time. German RepRap NEO 3D printer is therefore not suitable for printing with ABS.


The printer is connected to the computer via the USB port. The machine supports common open source software.


German RepRap NEO – 3D Printer is a very handy printer that suits everyone, for both small and slightly larger ideas.

However, the rather small size makes the machine suitable for printing smaller items. As a relatively advantageous 3D printer, it is affordable considering it works fast and with relatively low resolution.
