Modix Big60 3D Printer Reviews from customers

We asked our customer to provide us with a feedback and useful information based on their experience. Modix Big60 customers are using their 3D printer in various printing profiles and they come from sometimes very different markets. Automotive, film industry, aviation, composite materials , artist etc. Please read several reviews below:

Shawn Hicks - Film's Special Effect Artist - Ireland

Shawn Hicks: "This is the finished print of a cannon for an upcoming production. It's 5'2" total length made up of 12 pieces. Everything fits just nice. It took 108 total print hours (the printer ran day and night).  I used Formfab recycled PLA for most of the print.  I used a .8 ruby nozzle and a .4 layer height on detailed parts with a .44 layer height on long tube sections.  Temperature was at 225 and speed was always on fast. The 2.5 kg rolls were a great success. I was getting approximately 30 hrs of print time between roll changes." The video on the right shows the printed canon shooting pyrotechnics.

Metralabs - Mobile Robots Developer - Germany

Alexander Kloska, Mechanical Enginer and Metralabs:

" The print quality is improving with every print. We finished a robot for a new project last week.  All the housing parts were printed with your printer. The parts were grinded, filled and painted afterwards. Also our boss thinks about buying a second printer, which is good. "

"For our prototypes and small productions we normally use 1mm nozzle and 0.6 layer size. We usually use white PLA filament and each enclosure part is taking approximately 20 hours to print."

Efes Bronze - Turkey

Efes Bronze is a leader bronze sculpting artist with installation in many countries around the world. Efes is utilizing the large print volume of Modix big60 in order to create large models and later casting them with the lost wax technique.
The process is as following:
1. Print the models in parts and glue them together.
2. Create a negative silicon mold.
3. Cast wax inside the silicon.
4. Smooth and add details to the wax.
5. Cover it all with plaster and cast bronze metal inside.
Serdar Eraol, owner of Efes Bronze " We print with PLA and use PrintinZ bed sticker instead of PEI. Bed temperature is 55c. Print layer is 0.3mm in the base, body parts 0.2mm and face 0.1mm. We use 0.4mm nozzle and 7-8% infill. After 100-150 layers we change infill to 2-3% only. Some parts are 3 perimeters and some just 2" 

TCB Composite , Utah USA

Several of our customers are using Modix big 60 to print molds for composite material such as carbon fiber. In this example the printed parts were being used as a jig for precise drilling of a carbon fiber part.

Mr. Neal Crookston, Production Supervisor:
"Both fixtures with the carbon fiber part that slides into the fixtures so we can accurately drill holes consistently. It took about 60 hours each at 80 mm/s, PLA. The solid one is about 2.5 lbs. of plastic, the one with holes about a pound less."

CBS Industries - Nemours, France

Mr. Lorival - " Hi, My printer works very well, I print with nozzle 0.6 diameter and use the Cura slicer. We make many prints for electronics. For example tray for carry electronic card and another electronics components in a laboratory.
Until Modix we were limited to 400x400x400, print size but now we can make bigger objects."

DronEPIC - Drone Developer - India

"DronEPIC Automation Pvt. Ltd. is a hybrid drone manufacturing company with high endurance and payload carrying capacity based in Jalandhar India. The Modix Big 60 have large print volume, We are using this printer to print moulds or patterns for fabrication of complex parts with the carbon fiber prepreg composite material. It is a very big printing machine in this cost segment. The acrylic closed frames add the more aesthetic look to this printer and also help in stabilizing temperature inside the printer. 
 
I want to say Thanks to Modix team for providing a lot of supports after sales during assembly of the machine and to print our 1st part."

Matthiesen- Automotive Engineers- Germany

Good morning,

the printer is working very well and we have already printed some parts for my customer. We are printing at the moment with one nozzle and next week we start to print with the second one.

If you need some support by possible customers in Germany, you can send them my mobilenumber. I can explain them the process with the duty and Customs clearance and also the quality form the printer because this is very good. Because i know the Germans very well and most of them have not a good feeling to buy something without speaking with somebody witch bought in the past.

Thanks,
Peter

P. Gregory Harrington - Florida USA

" I ordered the Modix Big 60 in middle of 2017. In the beginning I was somewhat skeptical. After assembling, setting up and printing my huge prints with this machine I can say that this was one of the best investments that I have made. The components are of high quality and this printer design results into a very strong and sturdy structure which is critical for 3d printing.  The assembly is laborious and time consuming as it is a giant size printer but needless to say, when I started using the final product is it well worth it!
As far as, the costumer support, in my opinion, it is second to none. Not only I was able to communicate with the owner, Schacar via emails who gave me immediate knowledgeable responses and at the grand finally of my assembly offered his phone number so we can communicate over the phone or Skype. "
