'Bolt' is an innovative and fast 3D printer from Leapfrog that boasts several features to set it apart from others in this competitive market.

One particularly unique feature of this 3D printer is its dual heads, which means that there's no cross-filament leakage and much greater efficiency. In 'Replicator Mode,' the device is able to have each print head copy the movements of the other at the same time, which is particularly useful for making multiple prints at one time. Alternatively, Bolt can also operate in 'Mirror Mode,' which is ideal for making molds, as well as left and right parts where a mirrored copy of an object is needed.

Other intriguing features of the printer include a built-in webcam for remotely viewing prints, as well as a HEPA carbon filter that prevents harmful toxins from being leaked into the air.
