German RepRap X500

The German RepRap X500 is the answer to the current market demands.

It offers

  • Large construction volume of 500 x 400 x 475 millimeters
  • With its steel frame and a total weight of approx. 170 kg, the machine offers extremely high stability.
  • A new extruder technology makes it possible to process future material developments precisely.
  • The cooling circuit allows a stable process even at maximum building chamber temperature.

Heated Building Chamber

The heated building chamber (80 °C max) and the new high temperature hot-end (400 °C max) allow to process the latest technical filaments for highly durable parts and functional models. Warping and shrinking effects of conventional Filaments can be reduced effectively.

Auto Bed Leveling

The print bed is calibrated by the new auto bed leveling function. Surface irregularities are measured and compensated during the print. Any manual calibration of the printing bed is now redundant.

One integrated software suite contains everything you need to print high quality parts. Customizable settings and advanced processes put the controls into your hands. Support for dual-extruders, multi-part printing and even multiple processes within one part. Included in scope of delivery.

Filament Feed Control

The movement of the filament is tracked by sensors in the new DD4 Extruder and synchronized live with the filament feeding. This guarantees a precise and constant material flow during the whole process. Printing Errors caused by twisted Filament spools or by inconsistent material flow are now obsolete.

Stand-Alone Printing

The 7-inch touchscreen allows intuitive operation of the printer. This allows each print job to be started comfortably. Optionally, a network connection via Ethernet and WLAN with browser-based control and monitoring via webcam is possible. The “override settings” allow an intervention in the printing parameters during printing.

DD4 Extruder Technology

The German RepRap X500 has a completely new precision measuring technology for its DD4 extruder. The new technology allows a variable contact pressure for the filament and has pre-set settings for all GRR filaments. As a result, very brittle as well as very flexible materials can be processed without further knowledge. This enables the German RepRap X500 to process future material developments precisely. The cooling circuit allows a stable process even at maximum room temperature.

Precision in Continous Operation

The basic construction of the German RepRap X500 is extremely stable thanks to the steel frame. The production takes place in Germany with high-quality industrial components. This makes the German RepRap X500 a long-lasting device that has been designed from the outset for industrial use.

On Site Service

German RepRap offers customers a unique on-site service, in addition to the maintenance and repair services, and training.
