MatterHackers Unveils MatterControl T7X 3D Printer Controller

Share this Article

3D printing has its share of headaches. It doesn’t help that many 3D printers feature small screens, tiny buttons and janky jog wheels. Fortunately, you don’t have to be limited to your 3D printer’s built-in screen. MatterHackers, ​one ​of ​the ​world’s largest ​3D ​printing ​retailers, makes a line ​of ​highly ​intuitive ​3D ​printer controllers. Today, they announced their newest model, the MatterControl T7X.

​The ​MatterControl T7X is a 7″ ​Android-powered ​touchscreen with ​features ​like ​Print ​Recovery, ​software ​bed-leveling, ​and ​multiple ​printer profiles. The device takes the features that make MatterControl so popular and incorporates them into a handheld device, ​replacing ​the ​need ​for a ​computer, ​SD ​cards, ​or ​USB ​connectivity and ​allowing ​a ​completely standalone ​3D ​printing ​experience.

“The most important thing about T7X is that it makes the fully-featured, standalone 3D printing experience affordable,” MatterHackers COO Kevin Pope told 3DPrint.com. “Users get the full package including remote print monitoring, print recovery, direct printer control, cloud library access, and more built-in with no compromises. It’s as good or better than having a dedicated computer resource for every printer in your fleet at a fraction of the cost.”

MatterControl ​T7X features a sleek ​injection ​molded ​frame, and multiple ​standing ​angles ​and ​ergonomic ​handles make it easy to hold. You can download ​designs ​directly ​onto ​your ​T7X ​from ​your ​MatterControl ​Cloud ​Library ​for ​fast, ​efficient slicing. The MatterControl T7X also allows you to monitor ​your ​print’s ​progress ​remotely ​using its ​powerful ​built-in ​camera, ​and ​it will even alert you when ​your ​part ​is ​complete.

“We ​are ​incredibly ​excited ​to ​be ​launching ​MatterControl ​T7X,” ​said​ Lars ​Brubaker, ​CEO ​of MatterHackers. “At ​MatterHackers, ​continuously ​developing ​and ​improving ​MatterControl ​is ​a priority ​for ​us ​and ​something ​that ​we ​take ​tremendous ​pride ​in. ​T7X ​sets ​a ​new ​high ​bar ​for MatterControl, ​and ​for ​stand ​alone ​3D ​printing. ​It ​is ​a ​fantastic ​controller ​and ​even ​more importantly ​a ​fantastic ​starting ​point ​for ​the ​next ​revolution ​in ​desktop ​3D ​printing.”

Nothing is going to remove all the headaches of 3D printing, but the MatterControl T7X can make things significantly easier for you. To promote the launch of the MatterControl T7X, it will be on sale at MatterHackers from September 27 – October 4, 2017 for $179.00 USD (regular price will be $199.00 USD). It’s ​in ​stock ​and ​ready ​to ​ship today.

“MatterControl ​T7X ​is ​a ​tool ​specifically ​dedicated ​to ​your ​3D ​printer. ​T7X’s ​design ​increases ​the capabilities ​and ​ease ​at ​which ​3D ​printing ​can ​be ​successful,” ​said ​Dave ​Gaylord, ​MatterHackers’ Director ​of ​Marketing. ​”The ​streamlined ​3D ​printing experience ​provided ​by ​MatterControl ​T7X allows ​users ​to ​print ​comfortably ​and ​confidently.”
