The BIQU BX is a personal FDM 3D printer kit tailored primarily to hobbyists and makers. The device boasts a whole lot of various smart features; besides, its hardware makes it possible to add new ones and upgrade the already advanced machine further. The features that come with the product include a double Z axis for stable printing, large color touchscreen with three control modes and integrated OctoPrint, filament runout detection and power loss recovery to eliminate outage issues, auto bed leveling, powerful motherboard for faster computational processing, and one of the lightest extruders on the market.

The BIQU BX is an FDM 3D printer that can print layers at 100 microns. Thus, the surface finish turns out not as smooth as you get with more expensive printers, but it is more than enough for prototyping and household use.

The BX is equipped with a high-quality 0.4 mm nozzle providing the best balance between speed and detail. The machine features an extremely lightweight H2 direct drive extruder that sports an inductive auto bed leveling sensor compensating for the small irregularities of the print surface.

The magnetic flexible Sprint Steel Sheet on the print bed ensures good adhesion and effortless removal of finished prints.
The BIQU BX prints with PLA, PETG, TPU, TPE, ABS, and other materials. With the filament diameter of 1.75 mm, it is possible to use a variety of consumables no matter the manufacturer.

The extruder comes with a 3010 radial cooling fan that reduces warping and stringing issues when printing with PLA-type materials. Have a glance at this gift box printed in Glint Purple PLA — isn’t it amazing?
With the nozzle and print bed capable of heating up to 260 °C and 100 °C respectively, the printer is safe to work with materials such as PETG, ABS, and even Nylon. That said, we recommend installing an enclosed build chamber so the print quality will not be affected by temperature fluctuations as a result of drafts and other factors.
The build area of 9.8 x 9.8 x 9.8 inches (250 x 250 x 250 mm) lets you print a single medium-sized model or simultaneously create several smaller ones in one go. Large models can be printed in parts and glued together afterward.
One of the most noticeable features of the BIQU BX is its large 7-inch HD touchscreen with an upgraded operating system and three control modes to operate it, with 15 languages supported on the machine.
Thus, you are free to choose between Marlin, BTT Touch — and Raspberry Pi interfaces. Having installed a Raspberry Pi, you get the possibility to use the OctoPrint controller application, which provides plenty of useful functions for 3D printing enthusiasts, for example, full remote control and monitoring, creating timelapses, slicing, and more.
The BIQU BX is compatible with the major slicing solutions: Cura, Repetier-Host, Simplify3D. The printer software works with 3D models in STL, OBJ, and AMF formats; it runs on the Windows operating system (7 and above).

The BIQU BX is available in black. Its stylish look makes it ideal for an array of personal applications.
The printer dimensions are 17.3 x 21.8 x 24.2 inches (440 x 553 x 615 mm). It weighs 19 lb (8.6 kg). The spool holder is mounted on top of the gantry.
The price for the BIQU BX is $521.56, which is reasonable considering its functionality and performance.
