Four years ago, award-winning Polish 3D printer manufacturer 3DGence introduced its first 3D printer, also called the 3D Gence. The third wave 3D printing company has only moved up from there, partnering with video game marketplace G2A.COM on a service that allows gamers to turn their favorite video game moments into 3D printable models, introducing two additional 3D printers, and sponsoring the famous dress with 150 3D printed butterflies on it.

Now, 3DGence is back with a new 3D printer, the professional dual extruder DOUBLE, which was, as 3DGence Public Relations and Content Specialist Justyna Kałuża tells us, “developed in response to needs from different industries.”

The FFF DOUBLE 3D printer’s dual extruders allow users to 3D print the model and water soluble BVOH support material at the same time, using 1.75 mm material. Material combinations that are currently available include PLA and BVOH, PET and BVOH, PP and HIPS, and Nylon and HIPS, though the company is always working to develop more 3D printing profiles

The 3DGence DOUBLE is compatible with most filaments on the market, and is even involved in a cooperation with materials and filaments expert Verbatim. It’s easy to 3D print geometrically complex models on the DOUBLE, because all of the company’s 3D printers work with its dedicated software – 3DGence Slicer. It’s easy to use, and offers unlimited possibilities for editing advanced settings; print settings can be chosen based on the expected model durability or visual quality.

The DOUBLE’s filament end sensor will automatically pause the 3D printing process if it detects a shortage of material, and its material flow control system comes equipped with double independent filament sensors, giving users total control of the process. The extrusion quality measurement system comes with automatic error detection, which allows the user to constantly supervise the quality of each print.

The DOUBLE, which has a build volume of 190 x 255 x 195 mm, has excellent print quality, as all of the default settings have already been tested in-house for layers lamination, dimensional accuracy, and how easily the supports detach in water. It also features autocalibration, so users don’t need to manually calibrate the 3D printer. Special sensors will scan the 3D printer’s ceramic heatbed, which is interchangeable and offers three levels of thermal protection, and store the point map, detecting any possible surface irregularities. The sensors also measure the height of the printer head above the bed.

A metal frame keeps the structure of the compact 3D printer strong and rigid, and it’s easy to use thanks to a colorful, 4.3″ touchscreen LCD panel. Because the heating devices can get so hot, only a short preparation time is necessary before printing can begin, and in addition to offering high positioning precision, the dedicated, intelligent stepper motor controllers keep the DOUBLE quiet when in use.

Hotends can help guarantee high-quality print jobs, which is why the DOUBLE also uses PUSH, a quick hotend exchange system, so users can replace hotends without tools in only a few short seconds.

Other DOUBLE 3D printer specs include:

  • 26 kg
  • USB and SD card
  • Optional enclosure
  • Minimum 50 micron layer resolution
  • Maximum hotend temperature 270°C
  • Supports Windows and Mac operating systems
  • Works with .stl, .3mf, .obj, .jpg, and .bmp files

The 3DGence DOUBLE is available for purchase starting this month, though you can order a free sample here if you’d like to try it out first before buying your own.
