sharebotq1Sharebot is on a roll. They are loading up all of their guns, and are ready to fire at whatever competition gets in their way. At 3D PrintShow in London this week, we had already learned that they would be showing off two of their newest 3D printers; their huge Sharebot XXL, as well as their SLS based Sharebot Snowwhite.

This isn’t all though. Today they have informed 3DPrint.com, that they will also be showcasing yet another new 3D printer at 3D PrintShow in London this week; The Sharebot Q.  The Sharebot Q is a 3D printer that is dedicated to professional users who demand high quality prints along with fast speeds, and easy use.

“With a large A3 build size, the Q presents a fully automated build plate levelling system and allows (you) to print with a single extruder, two different filaments,” Cloudio Bonfiglioli, of Sharebot srl told 3DPrint.com. “The printer also has a touch screen color LCD display to control every feature of the print.”

It also has a fully automatic bed leveling system that makes the days of frustratingly trying to get your bed perfectly level, a thing of the past. It also features an LCD touch screen for easy controls, and most interesting of all, the ability to print with two filaments using just one extruder.

Sharebot launched their original 3D printer back in 2011, with the introduction of the Sharebot Pro. They then followed up with their 2nd generation machine in the Sharebot NG. Now, the Sharebot Q represents the third technical eveolution in their desire to provide customers with the latest, greatest, technology within the 3D printing space.

“With a large A3 build size, the Q presents a fully automated build plate leveling system, avoiding any other adjustment. The 0.35mm extruder can be replace in under 15 seconds with another one with different dimension (as well as the extruder’s block) and it’s capable of double filament extrusion for multi color or multi material prints through a single nozzle,” said Bonfiglioli. “The Core XY technique, with mostly parallel kinematics, means the motors are stationary, which allows rapid accelerations and a great precision. The printer has a system that allows you to control how the filament is extruded.”

It should be interesting to see the print quality of the Sharebot Q compared to the previous generations. From the photos provided by the company, it looks as though the “Q” is capable of some very high quality prints.  No specific details on print speed, resolution or price have yet to be released, but we will update this article if we are provided with them.

What do you think? Would you consider purchasing the Sharebot Q? Discuss in the Sharebot Q forum thread on 3DPB.com.
