NOTE: This is an updated version of our venerable PolyPrinter 229, which has worked great for a long time.
Changes: The 229N has a new and much better controller board (same as DX), allowing the printer to be controlled from any browser on your local network. (Requires wired Ethernet for browser operation)
It is NOT recommended to use the printer the "old" way, through the PolyPronter desktop software through USB. However, that way still works, if necessary.
ON-SITE SERVICE: A service for clients located within Dallas Fort Worth. Clients outside DFW can email email@example.com for a distant onsite service quote. Onsite service covers travel costs for trips made by our technicians to service your printer. This effectively turns the carry-in warranty into an on-site warranty. We highly recommend this for educational systems and businesses.
NOTE: This printer may occasionally requires a USB connection to a nearby computer to perform initial setup tasks, e.g. to connect to your network.
Our software package containing Kisslicer requires a computer. A Windows 10+ computer is best (Mac is usable but not as straightforward.) NOTE: MacBook or ChromeBook computers are NOT usable for slicing.)

Other Items that may be needed
If this is your first PolyPrinter, you will need to also purchase an Owner's Kit which contains necessary tools and some very handy accessories.
It's a good idea to have a single power bar that supplies the computer and the printer together (for best USB connectivity). Most power bars have surge protection inside. A UPS is also recommended (750 VA for 229s, 1000 for 508s - they also have built-in surge protection.)
The PolyPrinter has a 12-Month “carry-in” warranty.
The warranty covers:
- failures due to defects in manufacturing
- design problems preventing functionality promised at the time of purchase
- two-way shipping of replacement parts
- labor at a designated repair facility
- forum, email, and live telephone support for diagnosis and repair
- breakage or wearing out of vital things that are not nominally wear items:
- printed bits
It does not cover:
- travel to the printer location
- Consumables or wear items. (e.g. bed tape, nozzles.)
- Shipping the entire printer
