Aldi Is Selling A $499 3D Printer This Weekend

On sale from Saturday 13 May, Aldi has Cocoon’s Create 3D printer available for $499. Last time they had one of these sweet babies, there were literally people lining up to buy before the doors opened.

Here’s all the details.

Featuring a touchscreen for menu operation, a heated bed (necessary for a flat base on your creation), and a 200 x 200 x 180mm print area, the unit is pretty flexible with what PLA and ABS filaments it will take, and can print your designs directly from an SD card.

Here’s the main stats and features:

There’s a range of accessories available too, which you can check out on Cocoon’s website.

While we haven’t gotten our hands on one ourselves, it seems to be a pretty sturdy investment for the price – and of course it comes with a one year warranty (as well as your consumer law rights that it should be expected to work well) so it might be worth picking one up and giving it a go.

If you do, tell us how it goers in the comments!
