Sovol SV08 Overview: A Speedy Voron Tribute

The Sovol SVO8 might be one of the best “Voron lite” printer we’ve seen to this point. The Voron Design Group is a volunteer group of engineers who create free open supply blueprints for the very best quality 3D printer you possibly can print, construct and modify your self. Some producers have been accused of serving to themselves to Voron’s designs to make shameless clones. However not Sovol. This printer is plainly labeled as a mass manufactured model of the Voron 2.4, supplying you with the standard and modability of Voron’s design with the affordability and ease of a prepared made product.

Sovol reached out to the Voron Design staff and requested to do a partnership with some form of sponsor deal – just like what we’ve seen with Klipper and BigTreeTech, whose sister firm made the Hurakan. Voron politely declined. They’re a non-profit group, and with a tagline of  “making rockets with backyard instruments” you would possibly guess they’re a bit quirky. When Sovol persevered and provided cash, Voron collectively shrugged and pointed to the tip jar. And that’s what Sovol is doing; for each SV08 bought, they may put $2 within the Voron Design tip jar. As of this evaluate, they’ve donated over $2000.
