According to the manufacturer, the Pratham X is an industrial-grade FDM 3D printer with a build envelope of 1000 x 1000 x 600 mm. Despite its size, it requires only 3.3 square meters of floor space. Including accessories, the device weighs around 270 kilograms.
The new large-format printer offers a range of powerful features, including filament sensor, automatic bed leveling, touchscreen and ball screw drive in all axes. The manufacturer claims the Pratham X’s printing accuracy is +/- 200 microns.
