It took us a long time to find ‘the one’. The Witbox 3D Printer offers the perfect balance between reliable and repeatable high-quality 3D prints versus flexibility to change and the ability to adapt and customise both the hardware and software. The two most obvious parameters that you will want to change if you have an open source 3D printer such as the Witbox, is temperature and speed. The hardware of Witbox 3D Printer is 100% open source, meaning you can modify it and adapt it however you wish so that you can achieve total technological independence. For software, you can use Slic3, Cura, Pronterface, Repetier and our new favourite, Simplify 3D. Speed gives you and obvious outcome and temperature gives you the ability to optimise your prints in almost any material intended for FDM 3D printing so you won’t be restricted to paying top-dollar for high-quality. The Witbox 3D Printer removes barriers and encourages users to think about the manufacturing process, not only the design. The Witbox 3D Printer incorporates an innovative printing system inspired by the Fibonacci spiral, using a PTFE tube to feed the filament through. Thanks to this design, the feeder system is housed within the printer unit itself, reducing the amount of contact between the filament and the tube. This optimised design, combined with the reinforced Witbox chassis, enables you to create a printer network by stacking up to three Witboxes one on top of the other. The Witbox 3D Printer has been painstakingly designed to optimise its functionality. It’s a fully enclosed printer with a locking door safety system, preventing accidental access during printing and making it a particularly safe to use around children. The fully enclosed design helps to minimise noise, while preventing heat from escaping and controlling airflow – thus maintaining a constant temperature inside the printer Several factors affect the quality of 3D printing. One of them is the height of each layer: the lower the height, the better the level of detail and resolution of the printed object. It´s also very important for the printing base to be as level as possible. A toughened, laminated glass base is incorporated in Witbox 3D Printer
