What materials does it print in?
The 3D printer will print in PVA, ABS, PLA, Nylon, Dremyl, Fabric, Laser, Metal, Wood, Ceramics Chocolate and Cake
What can the 3D printer be used for?
The 3D printer’s capability is as broad as your mind. You can print in anything you can think of as a 3-D image in all of the above materials. It is a creative tool for design work, low volume production of immediately required items and as a prototype tool for design and patenting. It is used in the following industries:
- Toy Manufacturers
- Sporting Equipment
- 3d Puzzles
- Foundry Casts
In the medical profession, it is now being used to build models of patients’ hearts kidneys lungs and liver. The dissolvable support material can create a honey comb structure that will dissolve in time after the stem cells have replaced and grown the organ structure. The laser can be used to slice created models to see the internal structure.
The dremmel attachment can be used to create a cast from a solid piece of wood or polystyrene as well as to clearn up the model.
What are the size specifications?
The platen is 240 x 250 cm in size and the models can be built up to 300 mm high in brackets. We have a tripod version that will print up to 420 cm in height.
How mobile is it?
An optional carry flight case can be purchased to secure and make a 3D printer totally portable and can be moved from site to site. Please see our shop for prices and to order.
What are the advantages of the Xnilo over other 3D printers
The Xnilo has several advantages over other manufacturers. The number of different materials that they can print on is by far the largest in the marketplace. The easy interchange of the heads within seconds enables the change of media, the cleaning of heads by inserting a replacement to continue production of the model in situ and also the ability to see the whole design being created and the educational benefits accordingly
Large size models and reliability, accuracy and speed are also important.
Can I easily interchange heads?
The heads can be interchanged within seconds removing two screws and cable connection to enable the continuation of the model without interruption. Click here to view a video showing how to change heads.
Can you supply training?
We can supply training after installation and further training can be booked from £320 a session. The training can be tailored to operator training for up to 4 people at the machine or a class in a presentation style lecture.
How fast is the printer?
Depending on the complexity and density of the model the material used and the size of the object can arrange anything between 10 minutes and five hours.
Do I get support?
Unlimited support is provided free for the first 12 months with our Service Contract
