The gMax 2 is a large-bed, desktop FDM 3D printer made with love by the US manufacturer gCreate. The company flagship is the creation of 3D printing devices entirely made in the USA using high-precision, quality components. gMax 2 is composed of robust metal parts and engineering-grade materials. It is an upgrade of the gMax 1.5. It provides you with an enlarged build area of 457.2 x 457.2 x 609.6 mm. Its rugged design turns into high stability, reliability and strength, as well as top-notch printing quality. The printer comes pre-assembled and factory tested. Extremely easy to install, it operates as a plug-and-play device.

gMax 2 is a high-performance workhorse tailored to both professionals, hobbyists and small businesses. It comes packed with a filament run-out sensor, a killer feature when printing real-scale, large objects. It can be easily upgraded by installing the optional Chimera+ dual extruder add-on, which enables dual-material and dual-color 3D printing.

The gCreate gMax 2 has been used to print a wide variety of high-quality products, including architectural models, engine prototypes, fashion embellishments, and more. Let’s review its specs.

Print quality

The gMax 2 is an FDM 3D printer that can print layers within a resolution range of 40 to 720 microns (depending on the nozzle). With a resolution of down to 40 microns, it lets you produce parts with smooth exterior surfaces. The printer frame is composed of 80/20 Lite aluminum T-Slot profiles with powder-coated aluminum and steel parts. This sturdy construction alongside steel linear rails makes for higher printing precision and repeatability. gMax 2 is engineered with an integrated BLTouch auto bed leveling sensor with 64 Point bi-linear mesh bed leveling. It frees you from manual calibration while providing accurate outputs.

The gMax 2 comes stock with a single nozzle of 0.5 mm in diameter, providing you with fast print speed and an acceptable level of detail. The all-metal hotend is compatible with a range of diameters (0.25mm - 1.2mm). Its versatility lets you choose the best speed/detail ratio according to your project requirements.

Materials

gMax 2+ prints with PLA, ABS, PETG, PVA, Carbon Fiber, TPU, HIPS, and other materials. 

gCreate is also working with Mosaic Manufacturing for full compatibility with the Palette 2, enabling multi-material printing on its 3D printers.

The printer adopts an E3D V6 all-metal hotend, which lets you print with a wide range of filaments. 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.

The gMax 2 features a BLTouch Self-Leveling Bed Sensor and an external relay controlled by the printer. The heatable platform that allows printing with ABS-type materials is available as an add-on.

If you also install a custom enclosure, this will allow reducing printing issues due to temperature fluctuations.

The bed is covered with a BuildTak PEI surface for enhanced print adhesion.

The gMax 2 prints with 1.75 mm filament, providing you with a wide choice of materials. It can print with more than 30 types of filament right out of the box.

For example, this 3D printed turbine has been realized using aluminum filled PLA. Printed at 100 microns with 25% infill at 50 mm/sec, it came through really accurate.

Build volume

The build area of 457 x 457 x 609 mm (18 x 18 x 24 in) lets you print just about anything in one go, without splitting the models into parts.

For example, City Scaled, an architectural model making studio, worked with gCreate to realize a series of buildings using a gMax 2 3D printer. Look at the result. The final model didn’t require any post-processing.
