The Vshaper 500 is an FDM industrial 3D printer produced by the Polish Vshaper company. Its fully enclosed, metal construction ensures print temperature stability and good print quality. The printer is shipped already assembled. Equipped with an extruder with dual print heads, an insulated, heated chamber and a large heatbed, this professional additive manufacturing device allows producing big objects with low risk of warping and shrinkage. It won Poland’s Best 3D printer 2018 CD3D Award.
Vshaper 500 has a build volume of up to 430 x 430 x 450 mm. It adopts two V-JET print heads with a dedicated cleaning system aimed at removing filament waste and dirt during printing. The dual-extrusion mechanism enables multi-material printing. It also lets you print water-soluble supports with ease. The machine comes integrated with a vacuum table, a removable platform surface and a carbon filter, which allows proper ventilation and toxic emission reduction.
It’s successfully used in prototyping, toolmaking, and small-scale manufacturing. For example, it has been widely adopted in the automotive industry to replace metals with high-performance thermoplastics. It grants the production of parts with excellent resistance to stretching, bending and shock loading. Read the complete review to learn more about the device.
This 3D printed engine shows the dimensional accuracy and smoothness achievable with the Vshaper 500. The printing layers are not even visible.
The Vshaper 500 is an FDM 3D printer that can print layers at 50 microns. This way you can produce parts with smooth exterior surfaces. The final products are characterized by extreme mechanical and thermal endurance. The V-PORT double extruder allows printing with standard and soluble support filaments at once, enabling the production of intricate, large parts with professional-grade precision.
The Vshaper 500 comes stock with six different nozzles of 0.2, 0.4, 0.6, 0.8, 1.0, 1.2 in diameter. This wide set of tools gives you the possibility to pick up the most suitable for your project requirements. For example, in the case of highly detailed parts, you might choose a small diameter. Larger nozzles are ideal for fast prints.
The print head runs on linear guides, making the design more simple, lightweight and effective, all characteristics that are desirable in a 3D printer.
Vshaper 500 prints with HIPS, ASA, PET-G, PC-ABS, PA12, ABS, PA+CF, PA-GF, PC, PMMA 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 Vshaper 500 has a heated print bed and an insulated, heated print chamber, which means it can reliably print with ABS-type and temperature-sensitive materials.
The Vshaper 500 prints with 1.75 mm filament, providing you with a wide choice of materials.
The build area of 16.9 x 16.9 x 17.7 inches (430 x 430 x 450 mm) lets you print just about anything. The constant printing temperature along with the large bed is ideal for printing big parts in one go.
The printer is controlled via PC or the built-in touchscreen.
The machine includes USB and Ethernet ports for fast connectivity. You can print your 3D models from a USB-tethered computer or via Ethernet.
The printer works with SOFTSHAPER, a professional 3D printing software. It supports a variety of 3D file formats, including STL, OBJ, DAE, and AMG. The software runs on Windows 7, 8, and 10 (64 bit).

Vshaper 500 is available in a black and white color scheme. Its stylish look makes it ideal for professional and educational use, including automotive, foundry, aerospace, medicine, higher education, and design.
The printer dimensions are 41.3 x 31.5 x 74.8 inches (1050 x 800 x 1900 mm). It weighs 507 lb (230 kg). The spool holder is mounted internally.
The price Vshaper 500 is $0.00 USD, which is reasonable considering its functionality and accuracy.
