There has been a tremendous amount of innovation within the 3D printing space these last few months alone. Today Airwolf 3D has announced yet another such innovation. This morning they unveiled their latest 3D printer, the AW3D HDx. This printer is an upgrade from their previous AW3D HD model.
The HDx uses the same frame as its predecessor, but has several key upgrades, including Airwolf’s patent pending JRx hot end, which can easily handle very high temperatures of up to 599 degrees Fahrenheit. This makes it ideal for printing with Bridge nylon, Nylon 645, and polycarbonate materials. Priced at $3,495, this printer is at the higher end of the consumer market, but low end of the professional grade printing market. The JRx hot end can be purchased separately and installed onto existing AW3D XL and AW3D HD 3D printers, providing a cheap alternative for those who wish to print with engineer grade materials, on their older Airwolf models.
“Imagine a 3D printer that can print engineering-grade materials placed on every desktop,” said Erick Wolf, founder and CEO of Airwolf 3D. “Imagine the creativity it could unleash as engineers and artists experiment and create objects that until now were virtually impossible to affordably print. That’s our vision: to bring imagination to the desktop.”
Check out the specifications of the new AW3D HDx printer
- Build envelope WxDxH: 12″X 8″X 12″ (300 mm x 200 mm x 300 mm)
- Build volume: 1,150 cubic inches (18,878 cubic centimeters)
- Print Materials: Polycarbonate, Nylon, Nylon Bridge, and more
- Min. Layer thickness (mm): .06
- Max Speed (mm/s): Perimeter 150 mm/s, Travel 400 mm/s
- Nozzle diameter (mm): .50 + .35 (optional)
- Software: MatterControl (custom configured), Marlin Firmware
- System OS compatibility: Windows/Mac
- Printer Size WxDxH: 24″ x 18″ x 18″ (600 mm x 440 mm x 450 mm)
- Printer Weight (kg): 18 kg
The AW3D HDx has exceptional acceleration, speed, and print accuracy, better than that of the AW3D HD model. It also features new nylon extruder gears, and a finer 2mm threaded Z rod. The HDx will ship in approximately 4-5 weeks, fully assembled and calibrated, and include 2 pounds of ABS 3mm filament. Discuss this new printer at the Airwolf 3D HDx forum thread.
