The XFAB2000 is an SLA professional 3D printer from the Italian DWS company. It comes ready to work. No calibration is needed. You’ll only have to unbox the machine, fill the resin and launch your first test print to enjoy its quality. It features a patented technology powered by the Solid State BlueEdge® BE-1300X laser. It makes it compatible with a variety of materials, including acrylate resin, ABS, polypropylene rigid rubber, and ceramic. It adopts resin cartridges to streamline the material loading and unloading. This system reduces the risk of spilling the material. The automatic heating mechanism and the material temperature control keep optimal temperatures for printing with resin materials. With the affordable XFAB series, DWS offers industrial-grade SLA printers to multiple targets, starting from consumers to dental, jewelry and other industry professionals.
Companies like Studio Volpi have used it to print professional equipment and functional tools for industrial applications. Find out more in our review.
For example, this ski boot prototype has been designed by Studio Volpi. It has been then 3D printed using a DWS XFAB 3D printer to test its functionality. Made of Invicta 917 material, the model turned out good and functioning.
The XFAB2000 is an SLA 3D printer. It features a Solid State BlueEdge® BE-1300X laser which is capable of printing layers at 10 microns. It offers a galvo scanning speed of 5000mm/s. It is also equipped with the Tank Translation Technology patented system. The TTT mechanism optimizes tank consumption and endurance. This way you can consistently and rapidly produce parts with smooth exterior surfaces and high-grade of detail. The dedicated print removal toolset and the simplified support removal are used to easily remove the finished prints from the bed and the extra support structures, reducing the risk of cracks and damage.
XFAB2000 adopts a proprietary cartridge resin system. Swapping from a cartridge to another is really easy and clean. Thanks to this system, handling your printing materials will be a child's play.
The company currently provides twelve different types of resins. Each type has been specifically designed for professional applications, such as industrial design, jewelry, dentistry, educational use, and design testing. The resins are designed and manufactured in-house to grant the maximum quality of the finished product and the best physical-mechanical performance.
The build volume is a сylindrical working area of 7.08 inches (180 mm) in diameter. The round area provides you with 20% printing volume more.
The printer is controlled via a USB-tethered PC. You can send your 3D models to the device directly from the printing software.
DWS has also developed a proprietary editor, NAUTA XFAB Edition, and a proprietary printer management software, Fictor XFAB Edition. These easy-to-use programs will streamline your slicing and printing experience. NAUTA automatically generates support structures where needed. Fictor lets you configure print parameters to your liking, ensuring the best production quality achievable. The software runs on Windows.
