Sdm3D presents model SDM XXL, Its first 3D printer with a printing volume of 1 cubic meter. This is the model with the largest printing area that it has in its catalog.
This equipment can radically change manufacturing processes in countless work environments. From furniture printed in a single piece and made at the specific request of the client, to detailed models of an engine.
Surprising is an understatement to describe the exceptional printing area of the new Italian 3D printer Sdm3D . Print objects 1 meter wide, long and tall will allow designers to work, in many cases, in 1: 1 scale.
Technical Characteristics of the SDM XXL Printer
It has a 0.8mm nozzle, but to gain speed it can be replaced by a 1.5mm one.
La maximum z resolution is 200 microns, more than acceptable for the type of work to which it is going to be destined. Even for jobs that require low resolution it can be set to 600 microns.
Sure, a monster of this size has to feed on XXL spools of filament. Uses 15 kg spools.
The SDM XXL has an LCD display to control printing but also has Wi-Fi connectivity through Octoprint.
Octoprint It is a server that is mounted on a Raspberry and we allows remote access (via web) to our printer to control printing or print new designs.
The manufacturer recommends use of Pla filament, but indicates that it can be printed in Pet-G.
The printing speed can be regulated from 10mm to 88mm per second. These speeds are more than acceptable for the benchmarks that the sector has.
La SDM XXL supplied with the software management Simplify3D. But they clarify that it is also compatible with slic3r o Healing.
They have an accessory that serves as a stable base for the printer and raises it approximately 60 cm from the ground. However, we do not have a price for this accessory.
With a price of € 18000 We see that it is not intended for a private audience and the manufacturer focuses on a professional audience. How long will it take for us to see similar projectors based on the Prusa model in the maker community?
