BCN3D SIGMA is a 3D printer from the Spanish BCN3D Technologies company. It comes ready to operate just after unboxing. It includes a removable glass hotbed, touchscreen and two separate extruders. Based on the original BCN3D Sigma R17 design, the printer features an Independent Dual Extrusion system for multi-material printing. This means that its two extruders can operate independently. It has a build area of 210 x 297 x 210 mm and can print with PLA, ABS, Nylon, PET-G, TPU, PVA, and other materials. It has been widely used in different industries. Read more for further info.
For example, it has been used by a group of scientists from the University of Girona to isolate breast cancer stem cells. They have printed some three-dimensional scaffolds to separate the stem cells for studying them later. The pic shows how the 3D printed scaffolds look like.
The Zoles company employs the Sigma R19 to produce custom insoles. The additive manufacturing technology let it reduce the production time saving up to 80% of the cost.
The BCN3D Sigma R19 is an FDM 3D printer that can print layers at 50 microns. This way you can produce parts with smooth exterior surfaces. The IDEX system provides two different printing modes, the duplication and the mirror one. They allow you to print the same model with both heads simultaneously or to print a model and its symmetrical part at once, boosting your productivity. The filament sensor, the e3D™ redesigned hotends and the dual-drive gears Bondtech™ extruder provide sharp details, optimal performance, and reliability.
The BCN3D Sigma R19 has 6 different nozzles of 0.3, 0.4, 0.5, 0.6, 0.8, and 1 mm in diameter. You can choose the one that best fits your project requirements to obtain the best balance between speed and detail.
Look how well defined this Iron Throne from ‘Games of Thrones’ is.
The print head runs on rods with linear bearings, making the design more simple, lightweight and effective, all characteristics that are desirable in a 3D printer.
BCN3D Sigma R19 prints with PLA, ABS, Nylon, PET-G, TPU, PVA, Composites and other materials.
The extruder comes with a fan for printing with PLA-type materials. By cooling the model down, it reduces warping, stringing and, generally, makes for higher quality prints.

Unlike many FDM printers, the BCN3D Sigma R19 has a heated print bed and closed print chamber, which ensures constant interior temperature. Thus, it can reliably print with ABS-type materials.

The BCN3D Sigma R19 only works with own-brand, chipped filament cartridges. This ensures quality, as all the branded materials go through a strict quality assurance process.
The build area of 8.3 x 11.7 x 8.3 inches (210 x 297 x 210 mm) lets you print just about anything, even a Medieval Castle.
The printer can be controlled a built-in LCD interface. The full-color touchscreen has an intuitive interface and includes some advanced features to facilitate navigation.
3D models can be printed from computer via SD card (autonomous operation) and USB.
The printer works with the BCN3D CURA software and supports 3D models in the most popular formats (STL, OBJ, AMF). The software is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

BCN3D Sigma R19 is available in dark gray. Its stylish look makes it ideal for both home and professional use.
The printer dimensions are 18.3 x 17.3 x 26.8 inches (465 x 440 x 680 mm). It weighs 33 lb (15 kg). The spool holder is mounted inside.
The price of the BCN3D Sigma R19 is $2,995.00, which is reasonable considering its functionality and advanced printing modes.
