The Heavy Metal 3D printer is a fast, versatile, heavy duty 3D printer designed for use in everything from small factory's , learning centers,  print farms or as a home use printer. In quiet mode this 3D printer is quiet enough for use in a library, even when printing at maximum speeds. Whether you need quality prints, speed, ease of use or reliability this versatile printer can handle it.

SPECIFICATIONS

  • Automatic bed leveling inductive sensor.

  • Automatic extrusion temperature control. Nozzle temperature can be automatically controlled to increase or decrease as the volumetric rate of extrusion increases or decreases resulting in better print quality.

  • All plastic components printed in ABS capable of being in a heated enclosure if necessary.

  • Quiet mode allows printing at a barely noticeable sound level. Can be switched on or off via LCD menu.

  • Non quiet standard mode allows printing movements at ultra high speeds when noise level is not a concern.

  • Dual filament run out detection sensors.

  • Heated bed.

  • Powder coated aluminum 6061 T6 heated build plate.

  • Single extruder print volume -

  •      X 220mm (8.6") - Y 210 (8.4") - Z 220 (9.6").

  • Dual IDEX print volume -

  •       X 185mm (7.3") - Y 210 - Z 220 .

  • Simultaneous mode print volume-

  •     2x X 127mm (5.0") - Y 210 - Z 220 .

  • Mirror mode print volume-

  •     2x X 100mm (3.9") - Y 210 - Z 220 .

  • Positional accuracy of .0002" (.005mm).

  • Max nozzle printing temperature recomended = 250C.

  • Max heated bed temperature = 135C.

  • For use with 1.75mm filament.

  • Twin V6 style hot ends with 0.4mm nozzles.

  • Programmable part cooling fans.

  • Max layer height = 0.36mm

  • Min layer height = 0.04mm

  • Max movement speed 600mm/sec.

  • Max reliable printing speed apx 200mm/sec depending on user settings. Avg print speed 60~100mm/sec.

  • STM32F446 32-bit 180Mhz processor motherboard with USB input.

  • Sensorless homing using 2130 step motor drivers connected via SPI.

  • AC 110 to DC 24 volt power supply. 

  • LCD display with SD card slot.

  • Can connect to external control device using USB. Or print directly from LCD screen using G-code file loaded on SD card.

Features multiple different printing modes

  - Quiet mode. In this mode the printer motors and high speed movements are barely audible which makes this printer the perfect fit for a quiet office or library. Can be easily switched between standard mode or quiet mode from the built in LCD control.

1 - Single extruder printing using either the left or right extruder.

2 - Dual IDEX extruder printing. Print with two different filaments on a single part. Two colors, or one extruder to print support structure and the other to print the part, or one extruder to print infill and the other to print inner and outer perimeters.

 

3 - Simultaneous dual print mode. Print two of the same part at the same time using both extruders. Can be same filament type or different for each extruder.

 

4 - Simultaneous mirror print mode. Print a left and right version of a single part at the same time using both extruders. Can be same filament type or different for each extruder.

 One year warranty. Free technical support.

 Durable and designed to last.

 Welded and powder coated steel tubular frame. Extremely ridged and will last a life time.

 Quiet yet fast. Typical printing noise around 20~35 decibel range when in quiet mode.

 Perfect for print farms, industrial applications, schools, libraries or home use. 

 When a hot end is not printing it is automatically parked over a steel plate which prevents the nozzle from oozing. This improves print quality and reduces the amount of material wasted from needing to prime the nozzle when switching extruders during a print.

 Durable powder coated aluminum build plate spreads heat more evenly than other build plate materials.

 Y and Z Linear rod guide holes are precisely CNC machined after the frame has been welded to achieve accurate alignment of Y and Z axes.

 Corrosion resistant 316L stainless steel 3/8" (9.5mm) diameter linear rods used on all axes

 Bronze bearings with teflon embedded oil particles provide smooth, quiet motion and longevity.

 Open source electronics components means cost effective and easy to update electronics for specific needs.
