How's Toybox different than other 3D printers?
Toybox is designed from the ground up for entertainment and ease-of-use. We enable kids to 3D print their own toys by providing an intuitive interface and a rich selection of high quality toys and content. By giving children the ability to create their own toys on the fly, we enable them to create richer adventures and stories with their toys.
Can I upload my own models?
Yes. Toybox allows you to import models from the internet or even your own creations. You can import models in STL, OBJ, and gCode formats.
What printing materials does it use?
Our Printer Food rolls are with PLA. We only sell PLA rolls because it's non-toxic and compostable.
Can I print from my desktop or laptop?
Yes. You can print directly from our website www.make.toys/toys. Just make sure you log in to the same account your printer is connected to, or connect the printer to the account that you log into from the website.
How many things can I print with one Printer Food roll?
This really depends on what you are printing. You can printer around 500 cat rings, or 8 full size action figures per roll. We recommend printing things in different colors to make it more fun.
How long does it take to print
Printing time is completely dependent on the geometry of the model being printed. For example, a small ninja star could take less than 5 minutes because it's thin. On the other hand, larger models take longer. A Block Buddy could take up to 4 hours because it has a lot of different moving parts.
