Machine manufacturer BigRep marked its presence at formnext 2021 with enhanced versions of its large-format 3D printers: BigRep PRO and the BigRep ONE.
Key improvements of the BigRep PRO
Developed for industrial applications in mind, the BigRep PRO is a meter cubed powerhouse 3D printer that enables full-scale, large parts including functional prototypes, factory tooling, patterns, molds, and end-use parts.
Fully fiber-ready, the new BigRep PRO is now compatible with many fiber filled filaments including PA12-CF. Compatible with a new hybrid software-hardware solution named BigRep JUMPSTART, no manual print preparation is required.
JUMPSTART combines three features that make life easier for the customer, saving them valuable time. First, removing large and small parts on the PRO just got easier with SWITCHPLATE, a removable and flexible print bed surface that eliminates the need for glues and removal tools.
Second, LOCKSTAGE allows for accurate, secure extruder mounting with little effort, providing even greater precision throughout the entire print.
Lastly, BigRep’s MXT® Controls System simplifies BigRep SWITCHPLATE in action the user experience bypassing the need for manual print bed and extruder calibration ensuring crucial first print layers are optimal every time.
BigRep’s upgraded MXT® Controls System orchestrates the harmonious performance of all components and processes to ensure fast printing, accuracy, and repeatability. It employs proprietary algorithms that improve your gcode print file, resulting in better quality such as smoother surfaces, higher accuracy and all-around consistent results.
The new and upgraded BigRep ONE
The new and upgraded BigRep ONE is fully tailored for designers, pattern makers, and researchers.
The ONE comes with a new, lighter, and more precise portal and can now be configured easily to the needs of the user. Customers are able to choose from single, dual, or twin extruder modes plus add-ons like an enclosed housing and even the printer’s color to create the perfect machine just for them. Then as their 3D printing needs evolve, they can simply upgrade their ONE with additional features.
“We are excited and proud to present our new additive manufacturing solutions combining our diverse hardware, materials and processes, as well as software and controls expertise,” says Dr. Sven Thate, Managing Director of BigRep. “The new BigRep PRO was developed with our industrial users’ productivity and ease of use in mind. The new BigRep ONE, the original affordable large-format 3D printer, is now even more accessible and customizable for all innovative users THINKING BIG.”
