The Smart Cabinet completes the Epsilon ecosystem, offering seamless integration with your BCN3D Epsilon printers and boosting their performance. Its filament humidity control keeps your materials in optimal condition, and its uninterruptible power supply protects your work at all times, avoiding the risk of losing your print job due to power outages.
BCN3D Spool Cartridge
The new BCN3D Spool Cartridges have been designed to give you greater control during the process of loading and unloading filaments, while significantly accelerating both workflows.The magnets in their cover and the main body allow for easier loading of spools, as well as to quickly snap the cartridge in the loading or parking area of the Smart Cabinet. This system also prevents filament tangling: when unloading your material, the extra slack due to the long distance between the extruders and print heads is kept inside the cartridge.
BCN3D Smart Drying Technology
Within our humidity-controlled environment, an automatic drying cycle pushes the air through a compartment filled with alumina, a material that absorbs the moisture.
The desaturated air is pushed back towards the material compartment, free of any moisture that could damage your filaments. This cycle reduces significantly the environment’s relative humidity.
This technology effectively keeps the filament dry, ensuring that the materials maintain their mechanical properties throughout the whole 3D printing process.
Smart Cabinet Key Features
Designed to extend the service life of your materials, the alumina absorbs the moisture from the air in the chamber. Once it becomes saturated, this material is isolated from the filaments and gets heated up until it releases the moisture, purging it out of the system. This process effectively keeps the filament dry and in optimal condition for its use.
Print while in storage
The dehumidifier can fit up to 10 small spools (weight between 750 g - 1 kg and width up to 55mm) or 4 big spools (weight up to 2,5kg). These can be loaded to your 3D printer directly from this humidity-controlled environment, therefore allowing it to print while keeping the materials in perfect condition.
Complete working station
The tool drawer provides you with every utensil you might need, and thanks to the extra space for your laptop or tablet you count on a full working station right by your 3D printer.
Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS)
The UPS electric signal filtering protects your print from any possible outages and micro-cuts on the electric current. In the event of a blackout of up to 10 minutes, this technology will enable the 3D printer to automatically resume the printing process once the power is back. In case of a longer outage, the UPS will save the printer’s last position, so that you can manually resume the printing process at any time and without consequences for your print.
Storage and transportation
Maintain your workspace organized and clean at all times thanks to the ample storage space, designed to keep extra building plates and unopened filament spools - and thanks to the Smart Cabinet’s transportable structure, your printer can be easily moved across your facilities.
The mechanical properties of the 3D printed part are strongly dependent on how well the filament is stored
