1

Smart sensors + connectivity

21 intelligent sensors embedded throughout the printer.

2

ULTRA-RIGID METAL FRAME CONSTRUCTION

A structurally-optimized metal frame runs the full length of the body to offset flexing.

3

DUAL PERFORMANCE EXTRUDERS

Featuring lengthened thermal cores, optimized torque, and an industry-leading sensor suite.

4

100°C CIRCULATING HEATED CHAMBER

Controls the heat of every layer as it’s printed to provide dimensional accuracy, improved layer adhesion, and greater part strength.

5

Dry-Sealed Material Bays

Dry-Sealed Material Bays form a near-perfect seal to keep material free of damaging humidity.

6

PRECISION DISSOLVING PVA SUPPORTS

Precision Dissolving PVA enables fast and easy support removal without compromising part design or dimensional accuracy.

7

5″ Touchscreen

With the built-in 5″ colour touchscreen display, receive up-to-the-second status of your current print job and navigate menus in the most intuitive way.

8

Spring Steel Build Plate

A precision-calibrated print base and spring steel build plate provide true flatness for unyielding part accuracy.
