re:3D was founded in 2013 by Engineers Without Borders at NASA Johnson Space Center. With the introduction of the new Gigabot 4, Terabot 4, GigabotX 2 and TerabotX 2 3D printers, the company has integrated UltiMachine’s ArchiMajor 32bit control board into the systems and switched to Klipper firmware.
The PCB and Raspberry Pi touchscreen controller are housed inside a 16″ electrical enclosure which combine to control an agile software stack with web capabilities. Not only does this board increase Gigabot & Terabot processing power, but it supports better control of re:3D’s supply chain and electronics quality with a strong US manufacturing partner.
“As a US based company, UltiMachine enjoys designing custom solutions to enable open-source US 3D Printer OEMs to enhance their offerings and scale,” says Johnny Russell, UltiMachine’s CEO.
“Installing the UltiMachine ArchiMajor 32bit PCB was a critical evolution in the Gigabot & Gigabot X portfolio,” says re:3D Co-founder and Catalyst, Samantha Snabes. “Not only does the board offer increased performance, it has been critical in our transition to Klipper firmware, a front mounted touchscreen, and wifi connectivity while providing the customer with increased capability for open source modifications. Our relationship with UltiMachine has been critical in ensuring supply chain resiliency.”
