The new Dual Extruder PolyPrinter 465dx is a distinct step up in capabilities compared to our traditional machines.
 
What does this printer do that a 508 can't do?
 
The dual extruders allow:
  • using water-soluble support material
  • or printing in two colors at the same time (with suitably designed parts). One example would be signage or lettering on parts being in a different color than the rest of the part (in CAD it would need to be done as two bodies, one for each color).
  • Or printing two different types of material in the same print
 The network interface allows:
  • usage and monitoring of the printer from anywhere on your local LAN
  • printing even if completely disconnected from USB or the network, once printing starts

What does it NOT do that A 508 can do?

This printer only has a 465mm (18.3") wide printing area, instead of the wider 508mm (20") of the 508 machine.

How does it work?

It has two independently movable extruders (this is called an IDEX system - independent extruder).

It has the advantage of quick tool changes ( a few seconds), no waste flush block, and keeps the idle extruder from drooling on the part. (It does have the cost of using up available space in the X direction i.e. going from 508mm single to 465mm of dual travel.)

The result is more economical prints that print significantly faster than one that has a single nozzle, and cleaner color or material separation compared to dual-nozzle machines.

 

 ON-SITE SERVICE: An extra-charge optional service for clients located within Dallas Fort Worth. Clients outside DFW must email sales@polyprinter.com for a distant onsite service quote.

Onsite service covers travel costs for trips made by our technicians to service your printer. This effectively turns the carry-in warranty into an on-site warranty. We highly recommend this for educational systems and businesses.
