3DMonstr just announced the launch of their new Super-Rex industrial printer line. The printers come in a variety of sizes depending on the model (ranging from 1 – 3 cubic meters). The company’s aim is to provide industrial sized printers that are as large as possible but also affordable. They also have the added benefit of using a wide range of materials including PLA, ABS, HIPS, PVA, Nylon, PET, NinjaFlex, and Paraffin Wax.
The Super-Rex is a large build volume industrial 3D printer series that an enclosed Z-moving CoreXY Box architecture. The enclosure includes cooling and temperature control and easy access to all sides of the printer. The Super-Rex retains a lot of the popular features from the company’s T-Rex printers.
Aside from the size, the printer also has other great features like 4 extruder capability with a water cooling system. 3DMonstr has also stated plans to add additional advanced extruders including food grade (chocolate, frosting, cheese), low-temp paste (silicon, clay, ceramics), plastic pellets (PLA, ABS, & others).
It utilises a heated bed with individually controllable, heated segments. The company’s Multizone heated bed consists of an aluminum printing surface with individual 500 x 500mm 400W silicone heating pads, one per Heat Zone. Along with the automated bed-levelling and the automatic tool changer, the printer practically runs itself.
The Super-Rex Series
The company is providing 3 models: the SuperRex-393, the 363 and the 333. The main difference between the printers is their build volumes, otherwise the printers provide the same technology. The various sizes allow the company to cover a whole range of price brackets within the market.
The sizes are as follows:
- Super-Rex-393: 3 cubic meter (105 cu. ft.) build volume
- Super-Rex-363: 2 cubic meter ( 70 cu. ft.) build volume
- Super-Rex-333: 1 cubic meter ( 35 cu. ft.) build volume
While they have not publicly disclosed the price, interested parties can get a price quotation for the printer by contacting the company at [email protected]. Additionally, the company has stressed their efforts at maintaining an affordable price in their marketing efforts: “You can’t beat the combination of price and what this machine can do for you. As a smaller business, we know what it’s like when we can’t afford the tools the larger companies can. It remains our goal to help the smaller guys be able to take part in what this wonderful technology has to offer. And for the bigger guys, now they can afford two or three instead of one!”
