IDEX technology in its 3D printers

The company is dedicated to the development of desktop 3D printers based on fused deposition modeling (FDM), which consists of the layer-by-layer creation of parts through the adhesion of thermoplastic in the form of filament. Its main machines are capable of printing with a wide variety of materials, including PLA, ABS, PETG, Nylon or TPU. Both the hardware and the material are quite affordable and require a low initial investment. In addition, no advanced training is required to use the 3D printers, as the interface is very intuitive and simple, giving the opportunity for its integration to all types of companies. Moreover, the company is characterized by equipping its machines with a unique architecture called IDEX (independent dual extruder system. The goal? To cover the need to build auxiliary supports for models with overhangs less than 45° from the horizontal plane. In this way, “Duplication” and “Mirror” modes can be enabled to print simultaneously, doubling productivity with the same investment.

The BCN3D product range

Having seen the technology developed by BCN3D, it is worth highlighting its main products. The manufacturer has so far developed three FDM 3D printers. The Sigma, Sigmax and Epsilon are machines that, at first glance may seem similar, but each has its own characteristics. You can check them out in our 3D printer comparator.
