Designer XL is a professional 3D printer manufactured by the Russian company Picaso 3D. It is a large-format, affordable 3D printer working at high-temperature (up to 410°C). Thus, it is compatible with several high-performance filaments, such as PEEK and ULTEM. It has a steel shell and an aluminum alloy case. It ships pre-assembled and doesn’t require tinkering. The sturdy and enclosed body enables high-quality production of 3D models made with difficult-to-print materials.
This FDM professional 3D printer includes an automatic bed leveling feature that eliminates time-consuming, manual calibration. It’s successfully used in prototyping and small-scale manufacturing. Read on to learn more.
For example, the Bauman Racing Team has been using it to create various parts for their race cars. Indeed, its printing accuracy and reliability make it ideal for professional applications where high performance and wear-resistance are essential.
It can comfortably produce high-quality ribs, wings and fixtures, granting extreme dimensional accuracy and engineering-grade quality.
The Designer XL is an FDM 3D printer that can print layers at 10 microns. This way you can produce parts with smooth exterior surfaces. It runs at a speed of 100 cm3 / hour. The enclosed build chamber prevents temperature variations, producing high-precision, repeatable 3D prints.
Just look at this amazing character from Silent Hill. Entirely printed on the Designer XL, it has clean and smooth surfaces, neat edges and high-quality details.
The Designer XL is equipped with a 0.5 mm nozzle. It allows printing high-resistant, big print models like this huge Leaning Tower of Pisa in rapid times.
The print head runs on rails, making the design more simple, lightweight and effective, all characteristics that are desirable in a 3D printer.
Designer XL is capable of printing with refractory materials. It is compatible with a wide selection of complex filaments, including ABS, PLA, HIPS, PVA, ULTRAN 630, ULTRAN 6130, ASA, ABS/PC, PET, PC, FRICTION, CAST, RELAX, ETERNAL, FLEX, RUBBER, SEALANT, PETG, AEROTEX, CERAMO, WAX, SBS, SBS PRO, PROTOTYPER SOFT, PRO-FLEX, TOTAL PRO, NYLON, PEEK, PEI, and other materials.
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.
Unlike many FDM printers, the Designer XL has a heated print bed and closed print chamber. The print platform can reach up to 150° C. This means it can reliably print with ABS-type materials without the risk of warping and stringing caused by temperature fluctuations.
For example, some parts of this steering wheel have been printed with ABS.
The extruder has a maximum working temperature of 770 °F (410 °C), which means it can print high-temperature materials like PEEK, ABS/PC, PEI, carbon fiber and glass fiber.
The Designer XL prints with standard 1.75 mm filaments, providing you with a wide choice of third-party materials.
The massive build area of 14.2 x 14.2 x 24 inches (360 x 360 x 610 mm) lets you print just about anything. If you need to produce parts larger than this area, you can just split the model into pieces and then assemble it, just like one user did with this helmet.
The printer can be controlled either via PC or the built-in LCD interface.
3D models can be printed from a computer via Ethernet and USB cable.
The printer is compatible with the Polygon software. It works with STL and PLGX 3D models. The software is available for Windows. Mac OS X and Linux users will have to install a virtual machine.

Designer XL is available in a black and gray color combo. Its stylish look makes it ideal for both home and professional use.
The printer dimensions are 25.4 x 22.2 x 38.8 inches (645 x 565 x 985 mm). It weighs 165 lb (75 kg). The spool holder is mounted inside.
The price of the Designer XL is $4,900.00, which is reasonable considering its functionality and high-temperature performance.
