(3Ders.org) Spanish company Lewihe has launched an Indiegogo campaign for its new 3D printer that allows you to print with Filaflex and other materials with high speed and accuracy. Lewihe was founded by Juan Tendero, Jordi Tendero and Jose Manuel Quiles, who have been working over the last 14 months to make an affordable 3D printer capable of producing high-quality prints. The team is offering 50 Lewihe 3D printer kits for $499 on Indiegogo to super early bird adopters. The Lewihe kit version will cost $799 for non-early-adopters, and an assembled Lewihe 3D printer is priced at $995. It has raised $6,755 of its $60,000 goal so far.

In addition, the company also offers a Lewihe Pro version ($1,195), which includes WiFi and webcam, a useful feature to remote control and get visual feedback. The Lewihe 3D printer features aluminum chassis and a large print area of 185-by-185-by-185 mm (7.28-by-7.28-by 7.28 inches). It uses SAV MKI electronics developed by Francisco Malpartida to get your 3D printer up and running. The 3D printer electronics has multiple interfacing possibilities: it features high-speed native USB interface connectivity up to 8 Mbps so there is no lag on prints. It includes a 12V built-in fan controller for hot-end cooling, micro SD reader for autonomous printing, expansion bus to connect a keyboard and LCD. It supports four standard pololu compatible stepper motor drivers.
