The x1000 3D printer from German manufacturer innovatiQ was introduced to the market in 2015 and has since joined the existing portfolio of the x series alongside the x400 and x500eco. This 3D printer is, unlike its siblings, the largest of the series and therefore bears the name x1000. The name is in fact derived from the installation space size, which is 1000 x 800 x 600 mm, although one thing remains in common: the process used. Like the other x-3D printers, the machine uses Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF). As for the material, this large-format 3D printer designed for industrial use uses thermoplastics such as PLA. The manufacturer states that this machine is particularly suitable for application areas such as prototyping, small batch production, mold making, design or architecture.
More Details About the x1000 3D Printer
Weighing 400 kg, the machine has external dimensions of 1725 x 1500 x 1320 mm. If we talk about the printing speed, it ranges from 10 to 150 mm/s and requires a minimum layer thickness of 0.02 mm. In addition to the enclosed installation space with door switch, the manufacturer also attaches importance to all other safety functions that are necessary for industrial operation. This includes a closed control cabinet, an emergency stop switch and optionally a CO2-based dual fire protection system.
The intuitive operation of the x1000 allows the user to easily start the print job after establishing a network connection via Ethernet or WLAN. In addition, the machine features automatic filament management, which ensures that no problems occur due to missing material. It is also important for the user to know that the 3D printer is equipped with a DD3 extruder with full metal hotend. This ensures that no readjustments are necessary, and nozzle replacement is quick and easy.
