Our lastest 3D printer will be shipped as a complete machine with a nice acrylic case and a rigid aluminium frame. It has an integrated power supply and a nice display unit to control the 3D printer. It can print from USB and from SD card, so you can use it standalone on your desk.

For extra precision this machine uses screw-on linear bearings and all axes are driven by steppermotors and T2.5 belts. The core of the 3D printer is the autonomous Echinus board, which can simultaneously control up to 6 steppermotors, and its nice Echinus Vision control system.

It is equipped with one or two precision manufactured nozzles for perfect control of the printed pastics. In the dualx version, the two extruders are mounted on two seperately moving carriages, so that the currently not active printhead can be safely parked on one side.The firmware makes sure that those two heads automatically switch positions when needed.

With this system you can print either with two different colors, or, use different materials in both printheads to print with support material or objects which combine soft and sturdy plastics.

For the Z axis, this printer uses an innovative method to make sure there are no errors introduced by not perfectly straight lead screws. This printer uses timing belts for the Z axis, so this axis gets pulled up and perfectly straight, which ensures that all printed layers are placed perfectly onto each others. This greatly improves the print quality as you can see in the object below.

The machine also has an integrated heated printbed so you can print with ABS, PLA, SoftPLA, Laywoo-D3 or any of the other new 3D printing materials. It's maximum printing speed will be up to 100mm/s and you can tune the Z resolution down to 50µm to get extra precision for your object.

The machine will be available with 3 different nozzle orifices (0.5mm, 0.35mm and 0.25mm) from which you can choose to adjust the printing speeds and the printing quality to your needs.

You can now pre-order this system in our shop at: www.2printbeta.de and we plan our first delivery at the beginning of february 2014. The machine will cost 1200€ for the single extruder version and 1500€ for the dual extruder version.

Stay tunedThe 2PrintBeta - Team
