Not Sure if the FabX Pro Would Suit your requirements?
Specialities of the FabX Pro
One of the unique features of the FabX Pro is the
E3D v6 hotend
While most 3D Printers reach a maximum of 250° C, the FabX Pro can go upto 300° C, making it compatible with advanced materials like ABS, Nylon, Carbon Fiber etc.
The heated bed distinguishes the FabX Pro from all other 3D Printers in it's category. With a high powered silicone heater, the FabX Pro goes from room temperature to 60 degrees in just 50 seconds and to 110 degrees in just 150 seconds. This means you don't have to wait too long to start your Print. This also means you can print in industry grade materials like ABS, Nylon etc with ease.
Upto 110° C
The FabX Pro packs an E3D Hotend moving on premium Industry-Grade rails.
Added to that, it features an
Active triple cooling system.
While the hotend fan prevents heat from seaping up & thus preventing clogs, the two other ducted fans provide rapid cooling, thus enabling the FabX Pro to handle extreme bridging with minimal to no supports.
This also makes the FabX Pro print High speeds with ease.
Sleek Control Panel
FabX Pro unlike all it's predecessors, possesses a sleek LCD control panel which displays live info during a print.
Power the FabX Pro, slice in Cura, insert SD Card with the Gcode, Choose it via the control panel and print. What more? Pause, Resume, Change Filament, Tune Temperature & Adjust Print speed on the fly.
Over the last 3 Years, we have shipped out thousands of 3D Printers from the FabX Series. These have been a mixture of individuals looking forward to start 3D Printing businesses, Hobbyists, Makerspaces, Prototyping Service Providers, Product Designers, Interior designers, Additive Manufacturing Lab Setups, Schools & Colleges.
With the spec and the price tag, FabX Pro is the most ideal 3D Printer for Desktop Prototyping where the build requirements are less than 150*150*150 cu mm.
How is it different from other 3D Printers?
The FabX Pro is probably the only 3D Printer with it’s spec in it’s price category. For e.g. finding a Domestic 3D Printer whose hotend goes upto 300 deg C and one with a heated bed is difficult. The FabX Pro does that.
What knowledge is required to operate the FabX Pro?
If you can operate a computer, you can operate a FabX Pro, however, understanding the concepts in-depth helps better. You might want to attend one of our 3D Printing Workshops. A complimentary pass could be given on the purchase of a FabX Pro.
Alternatively, we have a quick start video.
Is there a learning curve involved?
To get your first prints, it shouldn’t take you more than a 10-15 min learning. For an advanced level, it’ll take some experience with the 3D Printer and probably a few weeks learning.
Can I use the FabX Pro for commercial purposes like a business?
Absolutely. A good amount of our customers who run successful businesses have started with a FabX. You could also be a part of Spots, which is currently a hyperlocal listing service for 3D Printing & related services. This would instantly expose your business to our web traffic. Spots is currently in Beta & is free.
Does the box have everything to get started?
You might have to buy the consumables separately.
Can the FabX Pro 3D Print in flexible materials?
The FabX Pro has a bowden mechanism for feeding the filament. This means the stepper motor responsible for extrusion is far from the hotend and the filament is pushed through a tube. This makes it difficult for soft materials like TPE. However this mechanism has a huge advantage of not having moving weights (stepper motor) on the gantry - This enables it to print much faster with no vibrations. The FabX Pro sacrifices printing in soft materials in return for higher quality & faster prints with all other materials.
What’s the warranty on the product and how is it serviced?
The FabX Pro comes with a 1 Year warranty - covers functionality aspects of the machine & not wear n tear, physical damage etc. Most of the machine design is modular. If there’s a minor part failure, a replacement would be shipped and instructions would be provided to fix. In case of major issues, depending on your location, an engineer could be sent or the product would be picked up by us remotely, for servicing.
What kind of maintenance is required after purchasing the 3D Printer?
We expect you to keep the machine clean and dust free. Cover it up when not using for longer periods. Do not try to load or unload filaments when the extruder is cold.
How long can the machine run continuously?
The FabX Pro is capable of running 24*7. In our offices, the 3D Printers deployed for services, keep running back to back, sometimes for weeks together.
Is the FabX Pro Cloud Compatible?
Yes. It’s compatible with cloud platforms like Octoprint, Astroprint etc. However you’ll have to procure a raspberry pi separately & install the OS yourself. This is not part of the package & such a service is not currently provided by us.
By default, prints can be initiated on the FabX Pro via USB or an SD Card. (Supplied with the machine).
