Modix are identified for his or her cost-effective, sturdy, giant format filament extruding 3D printers. They vary in dimension from the BIG-60 (60cm x 60 cm construct plate) all the way in which as much as 1.8 meters (x-axis) for the BIG-180X machine. They actually supply lots of bang in your buck.
And so as to add much more bang to that aforementioned buck, the corporate has simply introduced main updates and a recent new search for its 3D printer vary.
The brand new “Technology 4” variants will broaden the core efficiency and capabilities of its line of 3D printers. And due to an aesthetic improve, they appear good too!
Technology 4 Updates
1 – IDEX Twin Printing
IDEX stands for Unbiased Twin EXtruder. With this characteristic, every extruder can ‘park’ outdoors of the mattress when inactive, whereas the opposite one carries on printing with a special filament. You’ll be able to see an object that has been printed with the IDEX mode on the BIG-METER printer within the picture beneath. Observe the 2 filament reels on the facet.
IDEX drastically reduces the handbook labor concerned in eradicating helps by effectively utilizing a particular kind of breakaway assist filament. That is particularly vital for printing superior fashions with inside geometries utilizing water-soluble filament. The IDEX add-on is a major improve in Modix’s providing.
Right here’s a take a look at the IDEX’d half in additional element.
2 – Sooner Printing
The brand new machines can attain speeds of as much as 350 mm/s, with prime quality printing being achievable at 100 mm/s, and better speeds getting used for draft printing.
Such outstanding speeds are made doable by the robust Nema-23 motors on the X -axis, which exchange the present Nema-17 motors.
Additionally, because the IDEX configuration makes use of two Y-axis motors (one per extruder), the motor
weight-load on the Y-axis is lowered, and thus, the pace is elevated.
3 – Totally Automated Calibration
Modix is now providing a full set of automated calibrations routines to all our fashions together with automated mattress tilt, mattress leveling, gantry alignment, and Z offset calibration.
A number of different enhancements together with optical end-stops that enhance job restoration accuracy, stronger Nema-23 Motors on the z-axis as effectively, improved enclosure design, and emergency cease button as customary.
And all of it is available in a recent new aesthetic. You’ll be able to see the revamped BIG-120Z machine within the picture beneath.
The “Z” suffix implies that the most important print dimension of 120cm is within the z-axis, simply as a reminder.
The product will proceed to evolve in future additionally, with a close to time period add-on street map together with a closed-loop movement system, heated chamber (wow!), and a XXL-flow extruder.
“Modix continues its journey to changing into the market chief by integrating prime of the road applied sciences whereas sustaining its printers excellent price-to-performance ratio,” mentioned Shachar Gafni, Modix CEO.
“Our distinctive modular self-assembly kits strategy permits us to maneuver quick and enhance our platforms progressively over time, as a substitute of ready for a significant launch”.
The corporate has seen a number of key enhancements to their vary over the previous 12 months, together with a brand new print head, clog detector and a magnetic mattress. Modix sees this as an ideal time to refresh the platform with the brand new design.
As all the time, backward compatibility is a vital worth for Modix, so all house owners of earlier fashions will have the ability to improve their machines with these new applied sciences. The whole lot is interchangeable!
“The brand new IDEX expertise permits Modix to broaden its providing by answering to extra varieties of buyer’s wants,” mentioned John van El, CCO at Modix.
“Consequently, Modix reselling companions will have the ability to shut extra offers with extra varieties of clients.”

Modix will likely be exhibiting off their new wares on the Formnext 2022 occasion subsequent week, and you will discover them at Corridor 12.1 B01.
