Modix 3D Printers
Don't Limit Future Ideas, Get a Larger Printer Today!
One of the most significant advantages of Modix’s large scale 3D printers are its meticulously selected premium components. Each contributes to Modix's high-quality printing. These components include: E3D print head (made in the UK), DUET3D Controller (made in the UK), Trinamic motor drivers (made in Germany), IGUS shielded signal and power wires (made in Germany), Alcoa Mic-6 cast Aluminum plate (Made in USA), Meanwell Power Supply (Made in Taiwan) and more. Almost every component in Modix's large format 3D printers affects the print quality and reliability; therefore, Modix selects the highest standard of components for even the smallest parts, i.e. aviation grade power adapters, robust casters, fiberglass reinforced belts, etc.
A key design factor of Modix's large scale printers is the heavy duty design. Since their printers are delivered as self-assembly kits, Modix puts great attention on making sure that the end-customer will achieve the highest level of accuracy and stable calibration. This includes a very detailed online assembly guide with 3D models you can rotate and zoom, multiple detailed video guides for each step, and more. In addition, Modix supplies customers with calibration methods & tools that help complete this process successfully and as smoothly as possible.
Dual print head configuration allows you to print hollow object and other complicated designs using a soluble filament. Once completed, you can dissolve the support material and enjoy high quality results and avoid manual support removal.
Modularity is Modix's flagship principle. They constantly make optional components available that can be added on to the printer seamlessly. This includes air filters, multiple print head configurations, and much more. Modix lists several optional customization guides including: converting the printer for 2.85mm filament, increasing the maximum hotend temperature, and more. Furthermore, several printers offer the closed enclosure as an upgrade option to better match you budget and needs.
Modix's e3D print head offers a large selection of nozzles and heat block configurations. Modix offers three sizes of heat-blocks: The short e3D-V6 hotend for detailed tiny printing, Volcano (default) for high flow, and Super Volcano for fast, rough and bulky projects. Each of these heat-blocks has several nozzle options. A few are offered as part of our Modix kit and others can be found here e3D - 3D Printer Parts. e3D also offers solutions for high temperature printing, printing with abrasive filaments such a Carbon Fiber filled polymers etc.All e3D 3D Printer Parts
Modix users are not locked in to one brand of filament, slicer, part manufacturer, or anything else! Modix believes in the freedom of choice, especially for passionate innovators. Users can select filament from any source and make a use of various modeling and slicing software solutions, to their own preference. Modix recommends Simplify3D slicing software but Cura and Slic3r work nicely as well and are compatible with our large 3D printers. Customers are supplied with print profiles for each of these slicing software packages.
Self-assembly is a preferred method of buying a 3D printer for many professionals, for several reasons. Hands on approach – you build your own machine, so you have a better understanding of the motion system, the print head and calibration. You gain an invaluable in-depth understanding on how to maintain the printer and how to upgrade it in the future. Just like an operating system on your computer, Modix’s large format 3D printers are intentionally designed to be customized and tailored for specific needs.
Modix is evolving and innovating all the time, so when you buy a Modix 3D printer, you actually invest in a platform that can be upgraded from time to time. Owners of earlier versions are now being offered with the benefits of Modix's newest version (3.0). This alone improves the printer’s sustainable use and increases your return on investment.
Large 3D Printer Advantages
Experienced 3D printing users who already have one or more small desktop 3d printers and are now seeking to develop their printing capabilities should consider the following unique advantages of large format 3D printers:
- Strength - Printing large 3D objects in 1 part makes them stronger than printing them in multiple pieces.
- Post-processing - Printing models as one part saves time post-processing. There is no need to match smaller parts to each other & hide the seam
- Batch production - You can print multiple smaller items in one batch of production. Batch production can be configured to complete one object before starting another one (‘sequence printing’) for higher reliability.
Especially during these days, as ordinary supply chains and logistics are facing challenges and are uncertain, it is important to have a large 3d printer on hand.
Premium Support Since 2015
Modix is proud of its prompt and professional support services! We believe that any product is as good as its service and since their early days back in 2015, Modix has worked hard to follow that concept. Requests for assistance are cleared daily. Video conference sessions can be scheduled when needed to better understand the ground situation. This saves time in both understanding the problem and finding the solution.
