Technical Specification (all models):

General Information

  • Printing Technology – FFF (Fused Filament Fabrication)
  • Delivery – Self assembly kit. Assembly guide includes easy to follow videos and online 3D models that can be rotated and zoomed.
  • Version – All our printers share the same components (electronics, print head, motion etc..) and are based on Modix BIG-60 version 3.0.
    Version 3.0 was introduced at early 2020. For more information about version 3.0 features, please click here
    Owners of Modix’s printers enjoy upgrades from time to time in both configurations and  hardware.

In depth Technical Specifications

Chassis & Enclosure

  • Solid 40X40 T-slot aluminum profiles
  • Powder coated laser cut aluminum brackets and joints
  • Enclosure – Closed enclosure made of 3mm black Aluminum Composite Panels (ACP). Enclosure is an optional add-on for BIG-60 & BIG-120X and a default option for the rest of the models.

3D Printer Controller

Duet 2 WiFi, a powerful 3D Printer controller made in the UK 

  • Powerful 32 Bit Processor
  • Dedicated Wifi module with external antenna
  • Super quiet TMC2660 stepper drivers, up to 256 microstepping.
  • High speed uSD card and support for a second external SD card if required.
  • Dual extruders on the main board, up to 5 more extruders on the expansion board.
  • High Power rating: Each stepper driver is capable of 2.8A motor current, currently limited in software to 2.4A.
  • Connect via PC, tablet or smartphone on the same network to the on board web interface.
  • Set up your printer and update the firmware through the web interface.
  • Expandable up to 7 extruders (requires DUET expansion Board named DUEX 5)with Firmware support for mixing nozzles and remapping axes to use high power external drivers.

     

Interface

  • 7-inch Duet3d touchscreen – integrated with the controller
  • WiFi web access for remote control from either mobile or PC allowing users to upload print files directly from their workstation
  • SD card slot and USB

Motion System

  • Hiwin MGW9H linear guide rails
  • Four Z ball screws for Z axis 12mm diameter, 4mm pitch
  • 9 mm width Gates GT2 timing belt, reinforced with fiberglass
  • Axis Motors: Motech Nema 17 60mm length MT-1705HS200A
    | Holding Torque: 114oz.in (8.2kg.cm) | Current / Phase: 2.00A |
  • Position accuracy: X-10 Micron, Y-10 Micron,  Z-0.5 Micron
  • Print speed – Normal quality 60 mm/sec, Draft 100 mm/sec, Calculated for 0.4 nozzle. Larger nozzles normally print slower but provide parts much faster due to a reduced number of layers (thicker layer = lower resolution = faster results).

Power

  • Support both 110V and 230V
  • For electronics: Meanwell 24V 280W Power Supply
    • Protections: Short / Over-load / Over-voltage / Over-heating.
    • No load power consumption<0.5W
    • LED indicator for power on
    • Aviation grade switches and connectors
  • Heat Bed AC powered heater 1370 Watt
  • PID bed heater controller by Autonic

Print Bed

  • 6.35mm thick, Alcoa Mic6 milled cast aluminum plate, made in the USA.
  • AC powered bed heater 1370 Watt. Requires additional independent 15A AC source.
  • Dual heating zones. Inner 200X200mm size for small objects and lower power consumption.
  • Max temperature – 120oc
  • Print surface – PEI film with 3M high temp adhesive sheet.

Auto Bed Leveling

  • BL touch probe as standard
  • Probing of bed shape is kept in controller memory and activated before each print.
  • Probing mesh: Big60 – 100 points, 120X – 200 points.
* The photo on the right shows the interface of the calibration process. This results shows that a slight move upwards of the rear left bed mount is needed.

Software

  • Open source Duet RepRap firmware. The leading firmware for 3D printing allowing numerous configurations and easy customization using the macro system.
  • One can choose from any available slicer and 3D printer controller including: Slic3r, Cura, and Simplify3d (recommended).
    Specific printer configurations are supplied in the customer zone.

Extruder

  • E3D Aero extruder for both primary and secondary extruders.
  • Configuration: Main – direct drive, secondary – direct drive.
  • Extruder drive gear ratio 3:1 for power and accuracy.
  • Nema17 40mm for high power extrusion.
  • Adjustable tension idler .

Dual Print Head

Secondary print head is an optional add-on for BIG-60 & BIG-120X.
For any other model, secondary print head is included.

Hot End

  • E3D V6 Volcano high-flow heat block – standard.
    Optional E3D V6 for very small items with high details or Super Volcano for high-speed high flow prints, and for printing bulky objects (shown at the photo on the right).
  • The 1.75 mm filament diameter is the default, but the end-customer can change it to 3mm filament.
  • 0.4, 0.6 & 0.8 mm brass Volcano nozzles.
  • Smaller nozzle diameters are available for the standard V6
  • Heater cartridge is 24V 40W, max temperature is 285oc by default. Can be converted to a higher temperature of up to 500o
    by end-customer by changing thermistor, if needed.
  • Part cooling fan – 5015 blower fan

 

Filament

Our printing head supports almost any existing filament including :
PLA, ABS, composites: Carbon fiber, Wood, Copper, Brass, Magnetic, PHA, PVA , Hips, Nylon, TPE & TPU (flexible) Co-Polyester, PETG
