In the past few years, China has become the center for affordable products. It has managed to overcome all the barriers to become globally #1 for that.
With the growing demand, many new and affordable inventions have and are taking place in the developing country.
Another such invention is a 3D printer!
Although, it has existed in many other parts of the world for quite some time now, but due to its expensive rates not many have been able to get their hands on it.
On the other hand, if you go to China’s largest and busiest online marketplace – Alibaba, you will easily find many such 3D printers, hanging around at the price of peanuts.
And beating all of them in both quality and price, we have our latest entrant – OverLord 3D Printer!!!
Brief about OverLord!!!
To begin with, overlord – the invention of DreamMaker is the first 3D printer that combines simplicity, design, performance & affordable rates. It is different from most of the FFF/FDM-based 3D printers or in simple terms different than the other 3D printers.
OverLord comes in two different models in two different sizes: OverLord (£299) and OverLord Pro (£499). Also, it is available in multiple colors such as classic blue, industrial orange, marvel, ice grey, matte black, gem blue & black devil.
OverLord literally can be used for multiple reasons such as making toys, creating products, give shape to designs that are important for work, making a full-fledge business out of it, educating your kids with it, etc! Basically; as far as your imagination can go, so can OverLord.
To create a professional-quality, realistic product you don’t have to be an expert! Unlike the complicated normal and 3D printers; OverLord has a design and a product that is extremely user-friendly and can be used absolutely anywhere; be it home, office, classroom, lab, etc!
OverLord clearly leads the race amongst its potential competitors such as Flux, UP Plus2, DeltaMaker & Replicator 5th Gen; even before entering the racetrack. If we go to compare; there are many aspects that make OverLord far more better product than the latter such as print volume, resolution, heated bed, break resume, unlimited multi-color printing, power protection and most importantly the price.
Once you receive the printer all you have to do is; unpack it, plug-in the power, follow the onscreen prompt to setup and within 5 minutes you’re sorted & ready to begin!
OverLord has been loaded with a special system which provides auto leveling and auto calibration which means that everytime you start the printer, it will setup automatically.
The package also comes with a DreamMaker intuitive app! You can browse models, zoom in or out, send a design on the printing queue, check the printing status, download models from the cloud, etc!
OverLord is capable of printing with dimensions of 170 x 170 x 160 mm whereas OverLord pro will hold 170 x 170 x 260 mm dimensions for printing.
The heated plate allows you to print PLA & ABS (plastic that is used to make products such as Lego).
OverLord has been manufactured using aerospace alloy which makes it strong enough to withhold any possible collisions.
OverLord comes with a rare feature of multi-color printing which once was a priced possession of the wealthy. With the help of multi-coloring, you can create a model which has more than one color and that too with complete ease. Also, you can switch colors at any given point of time without any re-rendering or code editing.
The 3D printer offers a unique feature of break-resuming with the help of which you can stop the printing whenever you want and when you restart it, you don’t have to start all over again.
And lastly, the power protection feature that the printer withholds can be of great help during power cut or power break because you won’t have to go through the whole process all over again and shall be continued from where you stopped.
The product looks amazing and with the unique features that are being offered at such low rates is commendable too! But does that mean that the quality has been compromised?? Anyways, let’s hope for the best while we watch this product and company grow in the coming months.
