The Modix Big 60 V3 is an FDM professional, self-assembly 3D printer kit. It is the latest upgrade of the Modix Big 60 series. Like its predecessors, the Big 60 V3 is powered by a sturdy modular construction composed of T-slot aluminum profiles and a robust motion system. However, when compared to them, it is easier and faster to assemble as well as more reliable and accurate. Also, it has been designed with future enhancements in mind. This means it is ready to support ongoing upgrades.
Committed to the company policy, the Modix Big 60 V3 can be easily personalized and expanded both in volume and functionalities. It comes with an improved feature-set and an enlarged build area (10% taller) staying one step ahead of its predecessor, the Modix Big 60 V2. In particular, the V3 is engineered with a bunch of redesigned key components and high-grade premium parts, namely the easy-configurable RepRap Firmware from Duet3D, the Trinamic TMC2660 stepper motor drivers, the higher-grade Hiwin MGW9W motion rails, the 4 ball screws Z-axis motion system, the E3D Titan Aero extruder, the E3D Volcano hotends, the upgraded dual direct-drive print head, and the higher-performance wiring solution, which includes IGUS Chainflex cables for both the print head and motors. It adopts a heat print bed with PEI print surface, which facilitates either print adhesion and removal. The Wi-Fi module enables wireless control of the printer. The integrated end-of-filament sensor warns you when the spool is empty while the rest button allows stopping the process whenever you want. The company has also released a brand new assembly manual, which simplifies and shortens the assembly process.
The Modix Big 60 V3 supports a variety of optional add-ons, such as a dual print head, a redesigned enclosure, an on-board camera, and a double print volume add-on. With the right upgrades, you will get an industrial workhorse at a good price. The V3 is successfully used in prototyping and small-scale manufacturing. For example, it was used to print functional prototypes, end-use products, and improved spare parts. Scroll down for further info.
This massive tarantula weighs almost 8 kilograms. It took 5 days printing and is about 120cm wide when fully extended. She turned out good, smooth and perfectly working.

The Modix Big 60 V3 is an FDM 3D printer that can print layers at 40 microns. This way you can produce parts with smooth exterior surfaces. It features a milled cast aluminum heat bed with PEI surface and dual heating zones. The build plate is backed by a 100-probing-point auto bed level system and can heat up to 130°C. The 10mm width PU timing belt with steel cores provides higher speed and acceleration. The Z-axis has been upgraded, featuring 4 ball screws instead of 3 for better build plate stability. These are just some of the noteworthy upgrades featured by the new version.
The single-extrusion Modix Big 60 V3 has a single nozzle. However, it not only comes with a standard nozzle of 0.4mm in diameter but also with two additional nozzles of 0.6 and 0.8mm. It also supports a variety of sizes from 0.15 to 1.2mm as well. The printer can be also equipped with a dual print head engineered with two nozzles for multi-material printing.
This extreme flexibility gives you wider design capabilities.

The print head runs on Hiwin MGW9W motion rails, which makes printing reliable, fast and precise. The motion rails along with the upgraded Trinamic TMC2660 make for very quiet operation and higher accuracy.

Thanks to a functioning combo of E3D Volcano hotend and Titan Aero extruder, the Modix Big 60 V3 can print with PLA, PETG, PVA, ABS, ASA, PC, Nylon, TPU, Woodfil, Carbon composite and other specialty materials.
The direct-drive E3D Titan Aero extruder comes with a 40mm cooling fan for printing with PLA-type materials. By cooling the model down, it reduces warping, stringing and, generally, makes for higher quality prints. It also includes a bigger heat sink, which minimizes the risk of clogging.

The optional dual direct-drive print head includes two extruders mounted directly on the tool head, for a better multi-color and soluble material printing.
The Modix Big 60 V3 comes stock with an E3D Volcano hotend, but it is also compatible with the V6 hotend, a shorter tool aimed at high detailed tiny prints, and with the high-flow-rates “Super Volcano” for larger prints.
The redesigned optional enclosure is composed of 3mm Aluminum Composite panels, granting better heat and noise insulation. The doors and top lid are made of 3mm Polycarbonate sheets. Unlike its predecessor, the new enclosure features a taller top lid for easier access. It also has more room for the filament guide.
The Modix Big 60 V3 prints with any type of 1.75 mm filament. You can use the material you prefer from any vendor and start creating unique 3D printing projects.
The enlarged build area of 23.6 x 23.6 x 26 inches ( 600 x 600 x 660 mm) lets you print just about anything. It can also be expanded to reach up to 120cm in X-axis.
