Not all that long ago it appeared that all FDM 3D printers were constructed in a particular way, with extruded frameworks, no real finish and looking somewhat DIY industrial. Not the sort of thing that fits well on a creative’s desk. This style of device still appears but a few manufacturers have begun to develop machines that look as good as the prints they produce.

Two Trees is one of them, and their latest offering, the Two Trees SK1, is a much more ‘finished’ looking device with excellent build quality and materials. The gantry style frame is cuboid in form and solidly built out of the box, unlike others that need constructing.
