The Builder Extreme 1500 is a large-bed FDM professional 3D printer equipped with a self-developed dual-feed system. It ships pre-assembled and ready to operate. The device is stable and durable. It is entirely made of aluminum and features a fully enclosed body for reliable printing. Easy to move, it comes integrated with transportation wheels.
With a massive build volume of 1,100 x 500 x 820 mm and two printing nozzles, it allows creating large multi-material products in one go. It includes a special color blending technology, which allows creating top-notch prints with a gradient color profile. The bed calibration and leveling are semi-automated, reducing the need for manual intervention. It includes a Wi-Fi module for easy connectivity and an onboard camera for real-time monitoring. The easy-operating 7-inch touch screen along with the end-of-the-spool sensor and the UPS print recovery system makes for an easier 3D printing experience.
The printer is ideal for small-scale manufacturing, rapid prototyping, and design proofing. It has been adopted to produce ready-to-use tools, functional pats, large prototypes, and architectural models. Read on for a complete review.
Additive manufacturing alongside a massive print area enables large scale printing of architectural prototypes. For example, an architectural studio 3D printed this building. Notice how accurate and well-detailed it is.

The Builder Extreme 1500 is a large-format professional 3D printer that can print layers at 100 microns. The surface finish is not as smooth as you get with the more expensive printers but is more than enough for prototyping and design proofing. Equipped with a heated bed and a closed chamber, it can print with high-temp materials granting high-quality, repeatable results. The filament detection sensor and the Uninterruptible Power Supply resume reduce the risk of printing failures due to the end of the filament and power outage. The dual-feed system lets you extrude two materials from a single nozzle. It produces consistent results over time. It can reach a print speed of 120 mm/s.
The Builder Extreme 1500 comes stock with two 0.4mm nozzles, which can heat up to 260°C. In addition, it supports multiple nozzle diameters, including 0.8 and 1.2mm. In this way, you will be able to choose the nozzle size that best meets your printing needs. Larger the size, lower the detail and faster the print speed.
The aluminum body is solid and stable. The print head runs on rails, which makes printing fast and reliable.
Builder Extreme 1500 prints with PLA, PET, PRO1 (ABS replacement), PVA, Wood- and Bronzefill, and flexible filaments.
The extruder features a special dual-feed color-blending nozzle, which allows mixing two filament colors in a single smooth color gradient. You can control this feature via the bundled software. Also, the dual-extrusion system allows printing soluble supports with ease.

The printer comes with either a heated glass build plate, which heats up to 60°C, and an enclosed print chamber, which makes it reliably printing with ABS and temperature-sensitive filaments.

The Builder Extreme 1500 prints with any type of 1.75 mm filament.
The build area is 43.3 x 19.7 x 32.3 inches (1,100 x 500 x 820 mm). It lets you print large products without slicing the model in parts. This allows producing smoother yet more resistant objects.
For example, you can print a dual-color skyrocket.
A fitted 7-inch touchscreen display allows managing the printing settings with ease while the onboard camera keeps you constantly updated about the print status. An emergency button lets you immediately stop the device in case of need.
You can easily transfer your 3D models from a computer via USB cable, Ethernet or over Wi-Fi.
The printer comes bundled with Simplify3D slicing software. Simple-to-use and user-friendly, the program works with STL files. It includes optimized FDM profiles for different nozzle sizes. It is a cross-platform software that can be installed on Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux systems.

Builder Extreme 1500 is available in a black and gray color scheme with a transparent door on the front. Its stylish look and compact size make it ideal for any workspace and office environment.
The printer dimensions are 59.4 x 31 x 61 inches (1,510 x 790 x 1,550 mm). It weighs 496 lb (225 kg). The spool holders are mounted atop the device.
The price of the Builder Extreme 1500 is $24,900.00, which is reasonable considering its functionality, large printing sizes and dual-extrusion capability.
