India’s 3Ding Unveils FabX 2.0 3D Printer for Under $475

Share this Article

x2Back in February we covered a story about an Indian company called 3Ding. They had recently launched a new 3D printer called the FabX for a price that could appeal to a large portion of the country’s citizens. Even though India is experiencing rapid growth, their GDP currently is nowhere close to many of those in the Western World. The FabX was priced at just $325, and let me tell you, it appeared as if it could have been a $1000 machine from the future.

After sales data clearly impressed, and just six months after the FabX 3D Printer was announced, the Chennai, India-based company is already announcing a new version of the affordable machine, the FabX 2.0.

Back in February, the Administrative Head of 3Ding told us that his company was able to achieve such a low price for the FabX because they had a dedicated R&D team that focused not only on the advancement of 3D printing technology, but also on cost reduction. This cost reduction research has seemingly carried over to their second version of this machine, the all-new FabX 2.0. Although priced slightly higher than the original FabX at RS 29,999 (approximately $459), the FabX 2.0 features several improvements over its predecessor.

With an all metal steel and aluminum body, this latest machine certainly does’t look like something you could purchase for under $475, and like the FabX it’s incredibly stylish as well, playing off of the previous design’s ‘X’ shape. As we all know though, it’s what’s on the inside that counts. Below you will find some of the key specifications for this new 3D printer:x4

  • Technology: FFF/FDM
  • Build Envelope: 100 x 100 x 100mm
  • Printer Size: 280 x 280 x 300mm
  • Printer Weight: 10 Kg
  • Print Speeds: 30-100mm/sec
  • Min Layer Height: 50 microns
  • Nozzle Diameter: 0.4mm
  • Material Size and Compatibility: PLA, Wood, T Glass at 1.75mm
  • Firmware: Marlin

Packed into the FabX 2.0’s rather tiny frame is an automatic bed leveling feature, making calibration a breeze, even for first time users. If ease of use is a concern, then the machine’s ‘one touch printing’ will be a killer feature for you.

“There’s no LCD, no direction panels, no rotating knobs, etc. to browse through complex menus. It’s just one button, to print! and it works flawlessly,” explains the company.

Additionally there is an all new cooling system which utilizes sophisticated speed control algorithms and multiple fans to cool the printed object as it is being fabricated. If you are one of those people who are turned off by a lower price, as in your mind low price equates to low quality, then rest assured that the company stands behind this product with a 12-month warranty.

Let us know if you’ve order this new 3D printer by 3Ding, and what you think of the machine. Discuss in the FabX 2.0 forum thread on 3DPB.com.  Check out a promo video of the new printer below:
