p2Last week, Prodim International’s Orcabot XXL 3D printer was one of the stars of the international trade show, Euromold. In its twentieth year, Euromold is the leading world fair for moldmaking, tooling, design and application development. This year’s fair was held at the Frankfurt Exhibition Center in Frankfurt, Germany from November 25 to 27.

At this year’s event the company unveiled their Orcabot XXL 3D printer, which  as the name suggests, is about size. It has a build volume of 360 x 280 x 230 mm (around 14 x 11 x 9 inches), integrated handles, a fully heated bed, and enclosed power supply. The Orcabot XXL has a dual extruder, so it can print using two different materials simultaneously.  If you have a project which requires both ABS and PLA or even other materials like nylon and PVA, it can be fabricated with more than just one.

The frame of the machine is constructed from a robust aluminum, so its incredibly stable, allowing for accurate, high resolution prints at sizes most other machines can not offer.  Additionally the printer comes with an easy to use Orcabot Repetier software. Below you will find some of this machine’s specifications:

  • Layer Height (min): 0.1 mmp1
  • Printer Resolution / accuracy: 0.02 mm
  • Materials to be Used: PLA / ABS / flexible plastic / Woodfill / Nylon PA12 / PVA and more!
  • Build Envelope: 360 x 280 x 230 mm

Prodim International, which specializes in 2D and 3D coordinate measuring machines, 3D scanner, 3D lasers, 3D printers and specialized software, demonstrated the Orcabot XXL at their booth at Euromold with two machines running full time so visitors could get a sense of the 3D printer’s impressive manufacturing capacity. Orcabot XXL’s large build volume capability means it can potentially print moving parts as well as complex structures, prototypes or projects in a single print job.

Prodim is pleased to have received accolades for Orcabot XXL from higher educational institutions, some of which have purchased the large build volume 3D printer to help them advance their research in a variety of fields. Collaborations with higher educational research facilities seems to be one major direction for Prodim and, in particular, for its promising new 3D printer.
