Felix 3d printer v3.0 technical specifications:
The benefits:
  • More reliable printing. Print your objects with more precision
  • Higher quality at higher speeds. Due to increased stiffness of parts, higher accelerations are possible.
  • Machine safety. The assembled printer meets the CE safety regulations.
  • Optional dual extrusion. Print your objects with two colors or with special water soluble support material. This option is somewhat experimental. The mechanics is ready, but software requires some further development.
  • Last but not least, you can upgrade your own printer to the latest revision. Upgrade kits will be available
  • Power max 220W
  • Voltage 110-240V, automatically adjusting powersupply
  • Nozzle diameter 0.35mm
  • Build volume (x, y, z) (255, 205, 235) mm, When printing where dual extrusion is required, the buildvolume reduces to 240mm. But when printing with a dual head and only using one of the two nozzles the x range is 255
  • Layer height 50 micron to 300 micron
  • Heated bed temperature range 0 - 95 degC, When isolating bottom temp can go upto 115 degC. Ultra light aluminum sandwich plate.
  • Nozzle temperature range 0- 275degC
  • Axes positioning resolution (x, y, z) (50,50,10) micron
  • Display unit 20x4 character display, for assembled printer this is standard included. 
  • Stand alone printing MicroSD card reader integrated into electronics board. So stand-alone printing is possible even without the display unit
