Modix BIG-180X is a professional and industrial-grade self-assembly FDM/FFF 3D printer kit produced by Modix — an Israeli-based company renowned for the production of powerful large-format machines. The BIG-180X is one of the latest additions to the company’s lineup. Aside from an outstanding build volume of 1800 x 600 x 600 mm, the printer offers a handful of other truly useful features. For instance, it has a 100 probing points automatic bed leveling system, filament run-out sensor, dual-zone silicone heater to adjust the print bed heating, and can be equipped with a secondary print head. In addition, it offers a PEI print surface that provides ultimate layer adhesion and ensures hassle-free print removal.
The Modix BIG-180X is designed to provide the utmost degree of reliability and precision. It is equipped with a robust frame made of T-slot aluminum profiles, employing powder-coated aluminum-based brackets and joints. Its axes feature Hiwin MGW motion rails that ensure swift and unparalleled movement smoothness. In addition, the Z-axis motion system features 4 ball screws for improved stability. Moreover, the printer employs high-grade low-noise Trinamic TMC2660 stepper motor drivers. The BIG-180X is powered by an easily-configurable RepRap Firmware. The machine can also be upgraded with an active air filter, high-temperature sensor, or the E3D Super Vulcano hotend.
The BIG-180X is made for industrial applications and is expected to be used by experienced makers. It is perfect for prototyping, batch production, product development, sculpting, film, advertising, and a number of other industries.

The Modix BIG-180X comes stock with a 0.4 mm nozzle, giving you the best balance between speed and detail. The printer is compatible with nozzles of different sizes, allowing you to choose the best option for a particular application. It can also be equipped with an additional nozzle for multi-material printing.
The print head runs on Hiwin MGW9W motion rails, which makes printing reliable, fast and precise. The motion rails along withTrinamic TMC2660 stepper motor drivers make for very quiet and reliable operation.
The Modix BIG-180X offers a variety of filament types to choose from. It is compatible with PLA, ABS, composites such as Carbon fiber, Wood, Copper, Brass, Magnetic, PHA, PVA , Hips, Nylon, TPE & TPU (flexible) Co-Polyester, and PETG.
Each of the BIG-180X’s extruders is equipped with a fan, allowing printing with PLA-type materials. Additional cooling also reduces warping, stringing, and other issues associated with FDM printing. Another advantage of the device is its ability to print in different colors.
Modix BIG-180X offers an extra-large build volume of 1800 x 600 x 600 mm (71 x 24 x 24 in.) that lets you print just about anything. Such a build area lets you produce outstandingly large parts, or simultaneously print several middle-sized models at once, like the engine cover shown below.
