ModiX3D Big60 V3
Why struggle with your 3D print sizes when you can choose to go big with the Modix B60? With the B60 you get everything you love about Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) in a much bigger frame! The standard features of the B60 also place it squarely in the prosumer category. This means you can easily get the quality and perfection you desire from your 3D printer in a bigger capacity using the Modix large-format Big60 3D printer.
Modix version 3.0 continues to strengthen the winning design principles.
Components Dream Team
Version 2.0 offered a balance of price and several premium key components, version 3.0 could be now classified as premium in almost every relevant aspect.
Easier and faster assembly
Assembly time was shorten dramatically. Our target is 1 day assembly and it might take more than one production batch iteration to get there but the new version design allows it. It is now symmetrical in all corners, no more left or right side specific parts. Print head assembly is much easier and overall more intuitive.
version 3.0 provides wider hotend selection (V6, Volcano & Super volcano), easier to customize enclosure ACP panels that are easy to drill and cut for any integration need.
Version 3.0 design was about cleaning the look , more black, more industrial.
Version 3.0 is now shipped with Duet3D, a 32bit electronics board with advanced features for the high end 3D printing. With Duet, changing printer configuration does not require firmware recompilation anymore, all you need is to change a configuration file and restart your printer. The duet is preinstalled with the powerful Trinamic motor drivers that can push a much higher current dynamically and on demand to the stepper motors. No more manual current adjustment, the new Trinamic drivers can dynamically increase power as needed. These drivers can also sense pick power demands that might point on stall such as generated by a clog in the hotend. There are many other features that allows better reliability. i.e. when the board senses a temperature error the print job is now paused instead of halted as compared to Marlin behavior before. With Duet also the power failure resume is available making the Duet upgrade an extremely important update. Duet is developed by Duet3D LTD, a respectable commercial company from the UK. They host an active support forum and many advanced user tutorials and guides on many advanced topics and optional customizations such as macros and hardware extensions.
With Duet there are new and modern types of user interface. First, is the availability of a large touch screen. It allows easier operation with a touch of a finger while a real time printer status data is being displayed. In addition, the selected default Duet is the WIFI version that allows a full web access from any mobile or desktop. There is an Ethernet version in case a customer needs it. Now you can load a file right from your computer and start your print without leaving your chair.
Higher grade of motion system including:
Four Z screws
The Big-60 will now offer four Z screws instead of three. With four Z screws, the bed is much more stable during fast movement and accelerations, resulting in a smoother print surface than before. With four screws the tilt bed calibration is better controlled.
Optional Hiwin rails in Z
In addition to 4 Z Screws, you can now add 4 Hiwin motion rails to Z axis and replace the smooth rods. With the rails, the bed is now attached to the printer frame itself allowing higher print stability especially for very tall objects and fast accelerations. Price for that add-on / Up-sale will be provided later on.
Higher grade of Hiwin motion rails
For all axis, we are now serving a higher grade Hiwin motion rails. With version 3.0 we provide rails from the MGW series instead of MGN. Hiwin MGW motion rails are wider than MGN, the riding blocks are longer thus providing higher level of stability in all directions.
Drag chain assembly
On the Y axis, the drag-chain is now installed in a reversed position allowing the most of the drag chain weight, that carries the IGUIS cables, to rest on the Y axis profile. This reduces the load from the Y axis motor and also reduce the resonance on X axis as the whole structure is much more stable and tightly secured.
Removal of X shaft
We have replaced the long shaft and geared motor with a simplified dual motor configuration. Each motor is now pulling only one belt (one on the front and another on the back). This makes the assembly, maintenance and even the belt tension a much easier task than before.
All wires are now IGUS
Now also the X, Y & Z axis stepper motors wiring enjoy the same extruder IGUS shielded cables. This reduces electromagnetic noises of the motors to affect the rest of the printer.
The new print head was redesigned to allow compatibility with the advanced E3D AERO extruders that eliminated the old long heat sink design. This family of extruders arrives with a much larger but shorter heat sink and a 40mm cooling fan instead of 30mm fan as before. This reduces risk for hotend clogs in a closed chamber printing and with higher temperature melting print scenarios. The latest E3D Hermes extruder is now being examined and will be our primary extruder offering once it will be available by E3D.
Dual direct drive
New dual direct drive setup for dual material printing. A direct drive provides more accurate print results for the support material.
Larger selection of hotends
The new print head configuration is now supporting all three E3D hotend configurations, the standard V6, The high flow Volcano and the new super volcano as well. You can simply slide the BL touch probe and hotend cooling fan up or down and set the new hotend configuration with ease.
