German RepRap x1000 is a large-format industrial FFF 3D printer. Ideal for rapid prototyping and small series production, it is characterized by high-quality construction, precision components and low maintenance. Fast and accurate, it prints smoothly and reliably within a build area of 1,000 x 800 x 600 mm. The RepRap-based open platform makes it compatible with third-party 1.75mm filaments.
Designed for printing large industrial components, the x1000 comes with a closed print chamber, a professional ventilation mechanism, a Direct Drive dual extruder, and special safety features, such as a safety-door switch, an optional CO2 fire extinguishing system and an emergency shut-down. It grants high-quality results while preventing accidental injuries. The closed-box design improves the printing quality reducing warping and shrinkage issues caused by air fluctuations and temperature changes. The printer features both Ethernet and Wi-Fi connectivity.
German RepRap x1000 can be used to produce functional prototypes, end-use tools, big industrial parts, and many other models. Continue reading for a deeper review.
Additive manufacturing is a great ally for product development. For example, the x1000 has been used to 3D print a prototype of an autonomous and energy self-sufficient sailboat. Thanks to its great accuracy, it accelerated the design and testing process of the boat.
The German RepRap x1000 is an industrial FFF 3D printer that can print layers at 100 microns. Thanks to its stable printing conditions and sturdy structure, it offers a good level of accuracy with 0,1mm repeatability. It delivers precise outputs with a good quality surface finish. It can reach a print speed of 150 mm/s always delivering top-notch results. The x1000 is engineered with two filament sensors that will alert you when the filament is about to run out or breaks. This is a real killer-feature when printing large objects.
The German RepRap x1000 comes with a couple of nozzles of 0.4mm in diameter. It also includes additional 0.6mm nozzles for faster prints.
German RepRap x1000 prints with PLA, ABS, HIPS, PC, DuPont ZYTEL, ASA, CARBON 20, PVA, PET-G TPU, PEI, BVOH, PEKK, and other materials.
It adopts a fan-cooled Direct Drive DD3 dual-extruder module. The all-metal easy-swappable hotends can heat up to 290°C. The cooling system reduces the risk of warping and stringing making for higher quality print results.
For example, this boat prototype has been printed using the proprietary PET-G filament.
As an industrial device, the German RepRap x1000 has both a heated ceramic print bed and a closed print chamber, which means it can reliably print with ABS-type and temperature-sensitive materials.
Like all German RepRap 3D printers, the x1000 features an open-material system, which makes it compatible with all types of 1.75mm filaments. You can use the filament you prefer from any vendor.
The build area is 39.4 x 32 x 23.6 inches (1,000 x 800 x 600 mm). It has been specifically designed for printing large-size parts or multiple items in batches.
The printer can be operated both via a touchscreen or an Ethernet connection. The large display allows for easy and intuitive standalone operation. The integrated software lets you manage all the relevant print settings. It includes some pre-set profiles for a seamless 3D printing experience.
Transferring your print files is really easy. The German RepRap x1000 features both USB, Ethernet, and Wi-Fi connection.
The printer comes bundled with a full version of Simplify3D software. This intuitive yet powerful program is a cross-platform software that runs on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux systems. It gives you full control over the print settings. Also, it includes a preview-mode to constantly check your build sequence.
