With an efficient build volume and impressive print speed, the machine provides increased productivity for a wide range of applications, from complex prototyping to education. To streamline and facilitate the production process as much as possible, the MD-400D model comes with a robust metal construction with enhanced movement precision, fully automated leveling, intelligent algorithms improving print quality, and several printing modes. Thanks to the IDEX design, it can print top-quality models with complex geometries and hollow structures by using water-soluble filament.

The series also includes the dual-extruder and models representing solutions with basically the same functionality but different build volumes reflected in the names.

For fast and smooth operation, Mingda has developed a proprietary high-performance 64-bit motherboard powered by the 6-core CPU. It ensures fast processing of data and rapid completion of 3D printing tasks. With 32Gb of memory, one can quickly store, export, and print large files with ease.

To provide a reliable and comfortable experience, the MD-400D is equipped with multiple useful features, such as a built-in filament detector, smart print resume function, flexible PEI build plate, advanced dual cooling system, camera for remote monitoring, Wi-Fi support, efficient air filtration, silent operation, and open material system making the choice of filaments literally unlimited. In terms of software, the model supports Cura, OrcaSlicer, PrusaSlicer, and some other programs.

Due to its advanced functionality, high print speed, sturdy build, high-temperature capabilities, and wide material support, the Mingda MD-400D is ideal for an ample range of applications, such as rapid development and verification, small-batch manufacturing, design, production of complex prototypes and end-use parts, etc. With its user-friendly operation and a number of quality-of-life features, the machine will meet the needs of both professionals and hobbyists alike.

Print quality

The Mingda MD-400D can produce high-quality detailed parts with smooth surface finish. Due to its IDEX design, the machine is capable of printing with easy-to-remove and soluble support materials and can effectively build complex models with overhangs, bridges, and hollow structures.

The IDEX system of the MD-400D allows for flexible and precise extruder control. When using a single extruder, the other one is moved away from the print area to prevent unwanted filament overflow onto the printed object. However, the extruders can also work simultaneously and independently if higher productivity is required.

With the flow rate of up to 40 mm³/s and maximum print speed of 500 mm/s, the Mingda MD-400D is 5X faster than competing printers, which significantly cuts production times. Featuring acceleration of up to 10000 mm/s², which means only 0.02 s from 0 to 300 mm/s, the machine is capable of printing large-scale models in a day.

For example, this helmet (266 x 210 x 130 mm) was printed by the Mingda MD-400D with PLA-HF and PVA at the speed of 250 mm/s in just 34 hours. Regular large-format FDM printers on the market, with a printing speed of 50 mm/s, would print the same model in 4 days.

Crafted with an all-metal enclosed chamber and modular guide rail structure, the printer not only maintains a consistent printing temperature, but also ensures structural stability and precision of the printing process (up to ±0.1 mm).

To eliminate ghosting and ringing issues, the machine is engineered with the self-developed vibration reduction feature that automatically compensates the vibrations during high-speed printing. In addition, the flow control mechanism allows precise management of the amount of filament, eliminating under- and over-extrusion. This leads to improved print quality and accuracy with sharper details.

The MD-400D incorporates an automatic leveling system, which greatly improves printing efficiency and quality stability as well as helps to reduce failures caused by a poorly leveled build plate. The precise calibration of nozzle distance also enables the printer to create models with finer layer resolution.

Also, the machine boasts a flexible PEI platform. Due to its impressive viscosity, the build plate provides strong adhesion, high-temperature resistance, and support of various consumables. Moreover, it aims to prevent model warping and allows for effortless removal of completed prints by simple bending.

As an IDEX 3D printer, the MD-400D offers four special printing modes that make it both versatile and capable of tackling numerous projects. Thus, with the Duplicate mode, one can print two identical models at once. The Mirror mode creates symmetrical models and saves significant time. The Dual-Color mode implies printing a single model in two colors, giving more creative freedom. Finally, the Support mode assists in printing complex structural models using both high-performance and breakaway filaments. This simplifies support removal, ensuring a smooth and successful printing experience.

Last but not least, the machine has a powerful dual cooling system with an aerodynamic air duct design that ensures quick and complete cooling of each layer at high speeds. This offers exceptional molding accuracy as well as reduced risks of stringing and warping.

 

Materials

The Mingda MD-400D is equipped with a dual-gear direct extruder that gives it a unique ability to handle flexible filaments. Moreover, the machine is built to accommodate both high-temperature and common hotends. The maximum temperature of the basic hotend can reach 250 °C, supporting popular materials like PLA, ABS, PETG, TPU, and others.

Thanks to the all-metal hotend and hardened steel nozzle capable of heating up to 350 °C, the MD-400D model can reliably print with a wide range of engineering and composite filaments, including PET-carbon fiber, PET-glass fiber, Nylon carbon fiber, Nylon glass fiber, and more ensuring high dimensional accuracy and surface quality of the printed parts. There is no need to replace the hotend when switching between different material types. Furthermore, the IDEX structure enables multi-color and multi-material printing with support filaments, such as S-Multi, S-HtPA, PVA, etc.

Apart from this, the MD-400D is equipped with a quickly heated aluminum alloy platform with the maximum temperature of 110 °C. Evenly heated and capable of reaching 60 °C in about 75 seconds, it makes for strong first layer adhesion and overall print quality. The heating speed remains unchanged at 220V and 110V.

 

Build volume

The Mingda MD-400D 3D printer offers a capacious build area of 15.8 x 15.8 x 15.8 inches (400 x 400 x 400 mm) in the free printing mode. Unlike other IDEX 3D printers, it also offers a substantial workspace in the Duplicate and Mirror modes (400 x 400 x 400 mm and 320 x 400 x 400 mm respectively). This volume lets you produce models of various sizes, including fairly large ones, without the need of splitting them and in batches, which makes for time-saving and increased performance.

 

Printer controls and software

The Mingda MD-400D is designed with a 7" IPS high-definition computer screen with an intuitive and well-organized UI available in different languages. In contrast to traditional LCD screens, it features bright, saturated, and natural high-quality images from any angle. In addition, it is more environmentally friendly and saves electricity.

The device supports SD, U-disk, and Type-C connectivity. After being connected via Wi-Fi or a network cable, the MD-400D can be remotely controlled and monitored in real time. At the same time, it supports multi-machine control, which greatly facilitates and accelerates mass production.

To ensure smooth and failure-free operation, the machine performs self-checks when the power is on. It automatically checks the status of the extruder, hot bed, camera, leveling, fan, and other components. If there are any abnormalities, a prompt will be displayed on the printer screen for quick and convenient processing.

The Mingda MD-400D works with such popular slicing software as OrcaSlicer, PrusaSlicer, and an optimized fork of Cura. Mingda Cura is an easy-to-use program with multiple handy features and user-friendly interface providing a simplified printing experience. With the Expert UI mode available, it allows for greater control of printing parameters on all Mingda large-format 3D printers. Featuring an integrated estimation engine, the slicer gives accurate printing time and material use predictions for unmatched planning and productivity. As one of the fastest and most precise slicers on the market, this cutting-edge software is optimized for industrial part slicing to make for a rapid, hassle-free FDM printing. Plus, it comes with the tested presets for all Mingda-compatible materials.
