German RepRap 3-D printer produces large, industrial parts

Issue: February 2018

X400 German RepRap’s fused-filament-fabrication 3-D printer can be used for limited industrial-grade production runs, as well as in the manufacture of large parts. Equipped with Simplify3D software, it can use two extruders for the production of multi-material or multi-color parts. Six sizes of nozzles are available, ranging from 0.25mm to 0.8mm

What’s new? Version 4, with a raft of new features. It now boasts automatic bed leveling and extrusion speed control, along with a commercial-grade ventilation system. A new filament-tracking system automatically pauses the active print when the filament runs out.

Benefits Accurate, repeatable production, consistent operating temperatures and greater user-friendliness. Featuring high-end components, including milled metal parts and drives with tight tolerances, the printer can achieve printing accuracy to within 0.1mm. Also, with its new bed-leveling feature, it needs to be calibrated only once. It can be controlled via touch screen, a Web browser and USB interface.
