The Polish low-cost 3D printing scene is ripe with excitement, with several players battling it out on the wake of Zortrax’s global success and dominance in the segment. With the new 3DGence DOUBLE 3D printer, the Polish manufacturer 3DGence is answering Zortax’s recent launch of the M200 Plus and is out to take market shares away from the current market leader. Equipped with a dual extruder, the DOUBLE 3D printer is shipping out starting today, March 15th.
The 3DGence DOUBLEwas designed for optimal print quality. All default settings have been tested for dimensional accuracy, ease of detaching supports and layers lamination. Quality of printouts achieved on DOUBLE 3D printers exceeds the standards. Soluble support material allows printing with easy to remove supports. This material is available right now for PLA and PET, other materials use standard HIPS support.
The use of double independent filament sensors allows the user to control the printing process. Extrusion quality measurement system is equipped with automatic error detection, which enables constant supervision over the quality of each printout. 3DGence DOUBLE is equipped with filament end sensor, which automatically pause the printout if there will be a shortage of material in the feeding system.
The system works with its dedicated software – 3DGence Slicer. Printing settings can be selected based on the expected visual quality or model durability. Software combines simplicity of use with possibilities of editing settings for advanced users. New printing profiles are constantly developed by 3DGence. More materials will be available soon. 3DGence DOUBLE is currently compatible with most filaments available on the market. The company started cooperation with VERBATIM. This filaments producer is a supplier of materials such as PLA or BVOH used by 3DGence DOUBLE.
With a build volume of 190mm x 255mm x 195mm, the new 3D printer features interchangeable heatbeds (i.e. the possibility to change the ceramic plate), autocalibration – there is no need for the user to calibrate the device manually. Due to special sensors, the 3D printer scans the heatbed and stores the map of points, the device detects any possible surface irregularities. The measurement of the height of the head above the work table is done automatically and quick hotend exchange system dubbed PUSH. This solution enables to replacement of the hotends in just a few seconds, without the use of tools.
