The Builder Extreme 1500 PRO is seen as a workhorse printing 24/7 and it is able to fit in every office environment. The uniquely long build area makes it the perfect industrial 3D printer for automotive, aerospace and architectural projects.
The build volume of Extreme 1500 PRO is 1100x500x820 mm (XYZ) which makes it o n e of the longest and biggest industrial FDM 3D printers available today. Despite the extremely long Xaxis, the machine is the perfect fit for each and every office space as it fits into the smallest corners and even in a lift.
The fully closed housing of t h e Builder Extreme, in combination with the heated bed, positively influence the print quality of t h e finest details of the printed objects. It also improves the adhesion of the 3D printed part which is key for extremely large prints. The transparent d o o r s allow you to monitor the 3D printing process and reduce t h e sound of the machine by 40%.
The Dual-Feed extruder has b e e n developed in-house and has only one nozzle. Nevertheless, the machine prints mono-material objects, but also duo-material o r multi-coloured printjobs, such as PLA with PVA. The extruder comes with a set of easy to swap nozzles of three different diameters, t o influence print quality and printing time:
0.4 mm nozzle (0.1 – 0.3 mm layer height)
0.8 mm nozzle (0.4 – 0.7 mm layer height)
1.2 mm nozzle (0.8 – 1.0 mm layer height)
Printing extremely large parts? Use both extruders in 50% and print with 2 x 4.5 kg spools. By printing two spools at once (9 kg in total), the print quality will improve and the filament needs to be changed rarely, which reduces print time.
The responsive, full-colour touch sc reen makes operating the Builder Extreme easy and effortless. The touch screen allows you to have full adjustment control over the 3D printed part and Builder Extreme. From print speed, temperature to changing filaments – most of the parameters can be changed on the screen. The printer comes also with useful instruction videos about the machine operation and maintenance. Lock the screen with your personal code for safety reasons.
The Builder Extreme comes with an integrated UPS system that resumes the operation after a power cut. When a power failure occurred, t h e current status will be saved and as soon as the power comes back, you can resume the print. The filament detection kicks in when the machine is running out of filament. After refilling the new spool, you can finish the print job. This also allows you to fully use each spool to reduce leftovers on bigger spools.
Slicing software is just as important as the 3D printer itself. That is why the Builder Extreme comes with Simplify3D, which is the ideal slicing software for large scale 3D prints. To make a start hassle-free, we already optimised the settings for the different nozzle diameters so you can start printing as soon as the 3D printer arrives.
The machine takes relatively little space, so it can be placed both in a corner of your office and in the industrial warehouse of the factory. Furthermore, it is equipped with the four inbuilt wheels which makes it mobile and easy to transport between different departments, in order to manage the workflow of production better.
