There's a new model of dual extruder 3D printer on the block, the 3DGence DOUBLE P255. The device is designed to create prints with great detail.
The new 3D printer is equipped with solutions that allow ability to make the most of the printer’s capabilities. The design is based on the 3DGence DOUBLE. 3DGence DOUBLE P255 features dual interchangeable hotends: dual-material printing technology; quick change hotend system; auto-calibration; material flow control system; extrusion quality measurement system and replaceable ceramic work platform.
The applied ceramics guarantee good adhesion of the first layer of the printout and easy removal of the model after finishing the printing process. Additionally, there's an end-of-filament sensor, which stops the printout when it detects a lack of material; also, there are dedicated electronics and stepper motor controls to guarantee safety use.
A closed chamber has been added to the basic equipment of the 3D printer to ensure a stable temperature during the printing process.
In addition, the 3DGence DOUBLE P255 is equipped with a set of new hotends. 3DGence has added an optimized cooling system to the hotends. The new printer has also received updated software, optimized specifically for printing with enclosure installed.
DOUBLE P255 is a professional segment 3D printer designed to create 3D prints with advanced geometry in FDM technology. DOUBLE P255 has a printing function from two different materials, model and support, including soluble BVOH. It is possible to obtain elements with a certain mobility by disolving this filament in water. Currently, ready-made material combinations are available in 3DGence Slicer software: PLA + BVOH, PET + BVOH, PP + HIPS, NYLON + HIPS and Smart ABS + HIPS. The device also prints from the flexible Fiberflex 40D.
