Filament Innovations ICARUS-GEN6 3D Printer Pulsar Pellet Drive

In stock


Entering its sixth generation, the newest ICARUS is faster, cleaner, and easier to use than ever.


If you are in the Prosthetics and Orthotics Industry, the ICARUS is the ultimate choice for check socket fabrication with below the knee sockets 3d printed in just 45 - 90 minutes.


With an average wieght of 525 - 550g, PETG check sockets can be 3d printed for less than $20 each.



The Sixth generation ICARUS features a fully enclosed 17.7 x 17.7 x 37.2 inch build volume with Typhoon high-flow filament extrusion at nearly 2lbs per hour, a 450ºC max nozzle temperature, 120ºC max bed temperature, and a Four Z Axis Tilt & Mesh Bed Levelling System.


What's new for the Sixth Gen?



Laser Scanning Assistance

Over the years of building 3D Printers, we hear it from our customers: "How do I get the perfect first layer?". Well, what if a precise laser would measure your first layer and compensate as needed? That is exactly what Filament Innovations and Ahead Wind have worked on for the newest ICARUS. Every sixth generation ICARUS ships with a laser scanner to measure your first layer and adjust the bed height as needed, to get the perfect first layer. 

Linear Motion

For accuracy and safety, enclosed ballscrews are used on the X,Y, and Z axis of the entire machine. You won't find a belt on this machine. All of this, combined with USA Made servo motors from Teknic on all three axis, ensure precise motion movement.

Electrical Requirements

The sixth generation ICARUS is available in either a 220VAC Single Phase 30amp circuit (suggested for the pellet version), or a dedicated 110VAC 15amp circuit (suggested for the filament version). As a pellet dryer is strongly recommended for the pellet version of the machine, the pellet dryer conveniently plugs into the side of the ICARUS, so one 220VAC receptacle can run the entire pellet printing process. 

Extrusion System

Choose your extrusion system! Our complete integration of the Dyze Design Pulsar (FGF Pellet system) or the Typhoon (FDM high-flow Filament system) means yours ICARUS can be customized to your needs! If you are interested in pellet, please note that you, the customer, must supply a 100psi compressed air line. 


Fully enclosed ballscrews, closed-loop Leadshine stepper motors, and on-board water cooling deliver an easy to use 3D Printer with less maintenance from an American company.
