The Aquila X2 from Voxelab was released in 2021 as part of their Aquila series (which includes the C2 and S2). It uses FDM extrusion technology and is an open-source printer, meaning that it allows for flexible upgrades and modifications according to user preference. The printer features a 32-bit silent motherboard and silent stepper drivers to create an almost noise-free machine. It features a carborundum glass build plate which prevents warping and heats to an optimum temperature in just 5 minutes.

As for materials, the Aquila X2 uses PLA, ABS, PETG, TPU filaments. (According to the specification, Voxelab PLA Pro Filament is available on the website, but the link redirects to a 404. page). The printer dimension is 220*220*250, offering a balance between size, part quality, and price. The automatic sensor can detect and notify the user on filament status; the enhanced feeding program prevents breakage. Stoppages cause the printer to turn off to reduce risk of harm to the user. The Aquila X2 can automatically restart the process when everything is functioning again. This user-friendliness is enhanced by the 4.3-inch color LCD screen, which is bright and easy to read. In terms of language, like the other printers in the Voxelab series, the manual and on-screen instructions come in English and Chinese.

Voxelab Aquila X2 Reviews

The printer has mixed reviews. Some users describe it as a good choice for the price point and useful for simple designs. Others describe it as temperamental and difficult to use- for some people, it worked for some time then stopped working. Another major drawback is the lack of auto bed leveling, but this issue you can be aware of before purchase. Overall, it seems that many users believe the Voxelab Aquila X2 to be a good choice for those who are new to 3D printing as it is easy to assemble and relatively simple instructions.
