We are proud to continuously develop our line of products and offer an array of solutions to meet our many worldwide customer needs, customers who rely on 3D printing as part of their day-to-day business. Despite the Covid-19 crisis, Modix never stopped its services and R&D for a minute and the result is in front of you… These newly introduced products are only yet another milestone in our road-map to provide an end to end solution within the 3D printing market.

High quality parts ensure that prints are accurate and repeatable, and those advanced features translate to real cost savings when prints that would otherwise be failures are redeemed, like when a power breaker flips during a 22-hour print. Normally, the print would have to be restarted after the requisite number of profanities are muttered or screamed (dealer’s choice). Modix printers remember where they stopped and can be resumed after such a power interruption, saving material, time, and potentially your voice. Several upgrades are available as well, such as E3D high-flow hotends, an air filter, and a high-temp hotend.
All of their printers are shipped as self-assembly kits, which is what allows them to offer the most affordable XL 3D printers on the market. The BIG-Meter starts at $10,500, the BIG-180X at $12,000, and the BIG-40 at $4,500. At those prices, even the smallest firms can afford to adopt XL AM.
