This 3D Printer looks like a TRUCK. CR-100 Review

Should you buy your child a 3D Printer as a toy? Probably not. In this video we’ll check out the CR-100 as well as previous attempts at making a child-friendly 3D Printer – and why I think they all fell short of the goal.

  1. i think that child safety here is less important then printer safety. what could goes really wrong? cant imagine what irreversible harm can be received through 3d printing. small burn on a finger is not a big deal. i say more – this is a good lesson about importance of warning signs and instructions.
    in other hand broken printer is a potentially great problem in terms of motivation.

  2. Am 14 work with big drilling machines, lasers, my ender3 pro, toxic chemicals and machines that can snap your bones with ease

  3. im 13 and I have a cr-10s of my own and produce beautiful and useful prints with it. Ive even made a 9x telescopic sight, all by myself.

  4. Saw one of these at TCT the other day, its even smaller in real life than it looks on this video!! Definitely agree that there is very little point to this machine, if the kids got interested in 3D Printing they would have to get a new one with a larger usable build volume to print anything worthwhile. Raise3D have just brought out a printer for the education market that has decent safety features, the price point puts it in the bracket of schools rather than one off users, but its a step in the right direction!

  5. Hey, Angus. Can you review Biqu Magician? I was thinking of buying it as my first 3D printer. It's under 200$ and most videos/reviews about it seemed positive. But if you make video about it I would get perfect idea to get or not. It has 2 problems. It's small and doesn't have heated bed. As for size. I'm fine with it since things I will be printing would be mostly small (aka Beyblades) and if I really need to make something larger. I would just make it in parts that would snap together. As for heated bed. I think that would be a problem. Can you suggest a filament that prints well without heated bed. But is more durable than PLA? Or rather sone other 3D printer better for price? I wanted something that's easy to get started and as foolproof as possible.

  6. As a kid I would have the same preference as I have now, which is quality. As an adult looking at a product for a kid, you want them to be safe so I understand wanting safety being #1, but the kid itself will want good quality. Like you said, kids are impatient, even more than us adults can be. So if they wait all that time for bad quality, they will give up immediately.

  7. Sometimes I wonder if Angus is a delicate snowflake. I've burned myself numerous times on a hot-end for various careless and stupid reasons. Guess what? All my fingers are still attached and my hands still work perfectly. I don't see a 3D printer ever causing anyone, even a child, serious injuries. Yeah it will hurt, get over it and learn, you're not going to die.

  8. Don't treat children as if they were idiots. Treat them like your other friends. I read about this method of teaching children maths, by Leonid Zankov, that consisted of teaching them algebra at the age of six. The learned it quickly, since children are generally good at learning things. The teachers (this was/is in Norway) were rather astonished, afraid of "teaching them too much" or "giving them too much pressure", but most of the kids just loved it – they understood it. I guess they'll learn how to use a 3D printer the same way.

  9. I am 13 and I have been 3d printing for 3 years now. I just got a Tevo tornado. It only took me about an hour to learn to use cura, thingiverse, and tinkercad

  10. I bought my 3D Printer at the age of 14 (still 15) so I was still in your range of Kids and I think parents should buy a real Printer because it pretty much changed my life and I would be happy if more kids can have the same experience like me

  11. As a dad of 2 and grandfather of 2! anything that can and will burn trap little finger without supervision is just STUPID.

  12. I don't think you need to worry about safety too much. The extruder will be safe the same as a stove. Timmy will only touch it when it's on once.

  13. Bro I'm 13 and I'm saving for a Cetus or Ender 3/5 or a prusa i3 mk3 or a cr10. I'm not going and choking on SD cards and sticking my fingers in fans and burning myself on the extruder. We kids have more common sense than that.

  14. Anything that gets hot enough to start a fire should not be a toy for little kids. I say until about 14, they should just use mom and dad’s printer, under adult supervision. Of course I also don’t think parents should allow kids to play with their smart phones. Phones are for adults. Give them game consoles to play with.

  15. Try hairspray or glue on the bed so it sticks. I like the flash forge finder, I have found its good for everything I do and a kid can pick it up easy

  16. I think kids should have the more complicated devices, if they get that one then they will get nirmal ones. And if they hurt themselves its natural selection

  17. Maybe using PLA for starters is a bad idea …

    Using a material that melts at a much lower temperature and doesn't require cooling and a heated bed would be a good start I think. For a toy, for learning, I think it's not a huge issue if the printed part isn't very strong …

  18. This got me thinking because I’m starting a 3d printing with my 4th graders this year. We are still in the design faze, but I don’t think anything that heats plastic should be treated like a toy.

  19. I wouldn't call a 14 year old a "young kid". Many 14 year olds could easily use an Ender 3, given a bit of help. Calling teenagers "young kids" is a bit… rude.

  20. I think the colorful and "fun" design is a bit… condescending. Why make everything look like a toy? Let kids feel like they're using a serious tool, because they are!
