It seems as though it was several months ago that I was overwhelmed by the spectacle that the world refers to as CES (Consumer Electronics Show). CES 2015 in Las Vegas didn’t disappoint one bit, when it came to 3D printing technology. One company which flew a bit under the radar at CES, yet had quite the showing, was Hueway Technology. They released not one but two new 3D hueway1printers at this year’s event.

Jeremy Lee of Hueway was kind enough to provide 3DPrint.com with some details of their new machines, the HW509 and the HW512. These 3D printers provide many features new and improved from the company’s previously released machines, including:

  • ‘Guide rail printing’ and shock absorbing technology, to ensure that prints come out just right.
  • New 2.8-inch touch screen display.
  • Ability to monitor prints via WiFi technology.
  • Automatic build platform adjustment.

Both printers provide for a very high positioning accuracy using proprietary technology, and the frames of the printers are made up of rock-solid sheet metal. This is something many manufacturers have been straying away from as of late, in order to save money in the manufacturing process. The metal body always gives a 3D printer a more high-quality look and feel.

I must admit that whenever I am told a 3D printer is made in China, I become a bit skeptical, but the Hueway printers, which were exhibited at CES, were of the utmost quality and the print results were as good as most 3D printers I have seen come out of the US and Europe.

As for the specifications, both machines provide the following:h2

  • Printing Material: 1.75mm PLA, ABS, or flexible filaments
  • Nozzle Diameter: 0.4mm
  • Thickness: 0.1-0.4mm
  • Build Speed: 100mm/s
  • Power Requirements: 110v or 220v
  • Operating Software: Cura and compatible software
  • Control Prints with: SD Card or USB
  • Max Temperature Control: 200℃-240℃

The HW512 features a 300 x 200 x 450 mm build volume, while the HW509 is a bit smaller at 280 x 200 x 200 mm. While the HW509 is capable of printing from STL and G-code files, the HW512 is able to read STL, OBJ, and Thing files.

All in all, I walked away quite impressed with both of these new machines, and I look forward to trying one out myself very soon. More details can be found on the Hueway Technologies Website. What do you think about these new 3D printers? Discuss in the Hueway HW509 and HW512 forum thread on 3DPB.com.
