ORDER THE APEX 305 3D PRINTER FROM 3D PRINTLIFE AND RECEIVE 4 FREE SPOOLS OF PLAyPHAb OR ENVIRO!
Thanks to its unique custom built 4 channel Solo Nozzle, the APEX 305 effortlessly prints multiple files with up to 4 materials simultaneously. All at print speeds up to 70mm/sec on a massive 12 cubic inch heated build area.
Designed and built by engineers from Boeing and Microsoft, the APEX 305 is ideal for 3d printing applications from Education to Aerospace.
APEX 305 Features & Capabilities:
APEX 305 vs. Ultimaker 3 Extended
Massive heated 305mm cubed build capacity
(12 inch x 12 inch x 12 inch).
Print parts in incredible detail with ≤20 micron layer resolution in over 50 materials.
Elite Quad Channel Solo Nozzle: 4 Material / 4 Color Printing System can run up to 4 filament spools simultaneously. This is a single nozzle fed by 4 independent filament channels. Print multiple files in up to four colors or materials. Blend filaments to create your own custom colors. Nozzle heats to 250℃ in under a minute and will heat to a maximum of 300℃. Optional High-Temp Module heats to 450℃
Utilizing industrial mold technology, unique co-plated treatment of nozzle, heat throat, and heat sink dramatically reduce polymer adhesion that can lead to clogging.
Xact Leveling- Advanced Sensor & Software ensure a level print bed every time. Additional auto-mapping eliminates failed prints by creating a topographic map of the print bed that the APEX 305 follows to create a uniform first layer.
Just to be clear, even though we don't carry the Ultimaker line we are huge fans of their printers. We chose to compare the APEX 305 to the Ultimaker 3 Extended because it was the closest in class.
The APEX 305 features a modular design that allows easy access to key components. For instance the entire ECU unit can be removed and reconnected with just 2 thumb screws and 4 molex connecters. The Nozzle assembly utilizes 4 thumb screws and can be replaced in minutes.
The removable high grade cast aircraft aluminum build plate is made with built in rare earth magnets that conform to the printer ensuring the print plate is perfectly flat. Each plate is specially coated eliminating the need to tape or glue the print surface. Prints adhere perfectly and pop off the bed as it cools eliminated the risk of damaged parts during removal.
The print bed heats quickly to temperatures over 110℃, maximum 120℃.
Built for universal wireless interface with your PC, Laptop, Tablet, Cell Phone or any web enabled device. The APEX 305 automatically adopts security policies of joined networks.
Two 80mm fans automatically evacuate air from the build area providing excellent environmental control and stabilizing chambertemperatures at optimal levels.
Integrated 7” Windows 10 LCD touchscreen computer system for friendly standalone operation. Built in Repetier Server runs with Simplify3D, Cura, and Slic3r. Intuitive UI allows users to load files via USB, slice, and print directly from touchscreen. Connect remotely with Spectrum Support team via touchscreen interface to troubleshoot and optimize your configuration. Access Helpdesk Resources or even open a support ticket from the UI.
Every bearing used in the motion systems of the APEX 305 is self lubricating and polymer coated to reduce stress and wear.
The APEX 305 features industry leading Vexta 0.9°, high torque, high resolution stepper motors. (400 steps/revolution)
Hybrid Core-XY Motion Control System - Run high speed printing with rapid acceleration without sacrificing print quality.
Immune to backlash, the APEX 305 accelerates fast and sustains travel speeds over 250mm/sec with complete accuracy.
Print accurately at high speeds from 40 - 70mm/s.
Enclosed filament bay can run up to 4 active spools with storage for more.
Optional IP Webcam allows you to watch your prints from remote locations in real time. Create comprehensive recordings and time lapse videos, record your own audio verbal narration from the built in touch screen, and post videos online instantly..
The APEX 305 comes fully assembled with the latest software version installed and has been run for 24 hours prior to shipping so all components are properly tested and worn in.
Optional High-Temp Module adds functionality to print to temperatures above 300℃ and up to 450℃
If your table surface is not perfectly level the legs on the APEX 305 are fully adjustable and encased in rubber to reduce vibration.
Safe & Environmentally Friendly – Enclosed build chamber w/active exhaust & optional environmental chemical filtration.
Includes tool kit.
