This 3D printer immediately stands out because of its massive build volume. It can reach (xyz) 400 x 400 x 450 mm. Besides its massive build volume, the Formbot T Rex is a dual extruder ánd (optional) laser engraver. The kit comes with an optimized extruder structure that has a magnetic base. This allows the 4 sets of extruder kits that are included to be switched quickly and easily. The high temperature extruder (that can be added to the kit for an extra $50USD) can reach 350°C. Because of this high temperature of the extruder, the printer can support PEEK filament. But also carbon fiber, metal fill, ABS, PLA, PLA flex and wood filament. The additional laser engraver (that can be added to the kit for an extra $150USD) works on wood, paper, PMMA and we’ve heard it even works on jeans.
Because of its size and weight, the 3D printer is extremely stable and capable of more than 300 hours of continuous working time. The T Rex uses a high grade aluminium channel frame. The printing system also works with the help of pulleys, giving the printer higher operation stability and easier calibration.
The Formbot T Rex will be delivered as an almost (80%) fully pre-assembled kit. You only need to follow a few steps to finalize assembly.
