Fabbrix has just released the second update to its ELEMENTO 3D printer series, presenting the ELEMENTO V2 via its Crea3D distributing division. Already unveiled at the MECSPE Bari 2019, this new large format 3D printer is meant to offer greater speed and precision for parts and prototypes of all sizes used in a variety of applications.
While so many of the enormous successes in 3D printing may be centered around industrial and medical applications—from 3D printed cars to 3D printed homes to 3D printed hearts—the entire technology is still founded on one crucial element: creativity. Newer and better tools are continually being offered, meaning that users (whether novices or extremely experienced) around the world are able to reach out for more advanced resources as needed. With the latest version of the ELEMENTO—available for pre-order now—designers and engineers are able to experiment with a wide range of materials, suitable for even the most rigorous applications. These include:
- Polyphenylene sulfide (PPS)
- Smart ABS
- Poly-lactic acid compound (PLA HT)
- Polyethylene terephthalate (PET)
- Acrylonitrile styrene acrylate (ASA)
- Butanediol vinyl alcohol co-polymer (BVOH)
- Nylon carbon
- Polyamide + glass fiber (Nylon GF)
The Italian manufacturer has also developed a new linear technology control system for the ELEMENTO V2, relying on ball-bearing screws for better performance in deposition, a build platform with automatic bed leveling, and a build volume of 1000 x 550 x 500 mm.
The direct dual super extruder functions with an auto-lifting system, using nozzles in the following sizes:
- 6 mm
- 1 mm
- 2 mm
The ELEMENTO V2 also features a print bed that is heated and made of aluminum and glass, with an auto-leveling sensor.

From the inception of 3D printing in the 80s to the latest in hardware, software, and materials, users continue to shed the conventions of traditional technology and techniques—and innovate like never before. This continues to be possible as one improvement builds on another, and manufacturers continue to roll out new equipment for mainstream enthusiasts, as well as niche users who may require much more specific brands, and in some cases may even build their own 3D printers or customize them from open-source files.
