Modix 3D introduces “Generation 4” of its large format 3D printers

Modix, a global developer of large format 3D printers announces major updates for its 3d printers. The new “Generation 4” release will expand the core performance and capabilities of its line of 3D printers.

Key improvements include:

  • IDEX dual printing – IDEX stands for independent dual extruder. With this feature, each extruder can ‘park’ outside of the bed while inactive. IDEX drastically reduces the manual labor involved in removing supports by efficiently using a special type of breakaway support filament. This is especially critical for printing advanced models with internal geometries using water-soluble filament. The IDEX add-on is a significant upgrade in Modix’s offering.
  • Fast 3D Printing – Travel of up to 350 mm/s, high quality printing at 100 mm/s and higher speeds for draft printing. Such remarkable speeds are made possible by strong Nema-23 motors on the X axis, which replace the current Nema-17 motors. Also, since the IDEX configuration uses two Y-axis motors, one per extruder, the motor weight-load on the Y axis is reduced and speed is increased.
  • Fully automated calibration – Modix is now offering a full set of automated calibrations routines to all our models including automated bed tilt, bed leveling, gantry alignment and Z offset calibration.
  • Multiple other improvements including optical end-stops that improve job recovery accuracy, stronger Nema-23 Motors on Z axis, improved enclosure sealing and ergonomics, emergency stop button as default and a fresh, new design. Near Term add-on road map includes a closed-loop motion system, heated chamber, and a XXL-flow extruder.

Mr. Shachar Gafni, Modix CEO: “Modix continues its journey to becoming the market leader by integrating top of the line technologies while maintaining its’ printers outstanding price-to-performance ratio. Our unique modular self-assembly kits approach allows us to move fast and improve our platforms gradually over time instead of waiting for a major release. After releasing several key improvements over the past year including a new print head, clog detector and a magnetic bed, it’s the perfect time to introduce a new, refreshed base platform. As always, backward compatibility is an important value for Modix, so all owners of previous models will be able to upgrade their machines with these new technologies. Owners of Modix large 3D printers enjoy higher returns on investment over the course of time in comparison to a closed box alternative offering.“

Mr. John Van El, Modix CCO: “The new IDEX technology allows Modix to expand its offering by answering to more types of customer’s needs. As a result, Modix reselling partners will be able to close more deals with more types of customers.”

Modix is a Tel Aviv–based developer of large-format 3D printers. Modix 3D printers are based on cherry-picked, heavy-duty premium components and high-end design, providing reliability and high-quality prints for industrial end users.
