3D Printer Enters A New Stage Of Development Answered
As a new type of manufacturing process that using rapid prototyping technology,3D printers aroused widespread concern when it was published. A new product was initial pushed into the market, people concerns its functionality and price more than its shape and so on. 3D printer is no exception. Initially, people's attention focused on its cost and performance.
What way reflected cost and performance for 3D printers? I believe that there are three main areas, including printing speed, printing volume and resolution. For consumers, what level achieve these three areas and which brand is more competitive? Next, I will be based on my own experience for everyone to make a resolution.
As a Chinese brand that created independently, LXMaker won the favor of consumers from different countries by its excellent performance when it was pushed into market and sales was rising gradually. Recently, LXMaker launched a new all-metal 3D printer that was named Iron Man series.Three aspects of the machine has been greatly improved.
First is the super high printing speed:Take advantages of the cross shaft structure innovation and the unique design to separate feeding device with extruder at both sides, instead of Makerbot's heavy printing head (loaded with 3 electric motors, illustrated as below). LXMaker's light & handy extruder guarantees high speed printing. Imagine, if you are running, unloaded or carrying bags, which is faster? The maximum nozzle moving speed of LXMaker can reach 500 mm / sec .
The novel cross shaft structure introduced above has win the big prize of "The Best Open Source Hardware"and"The Most Precised and Fastest 3D Printer",nominated by the world-wide well-known Make Magzine.
Second is the super large printing volume:The maximum printing volume is up to 260x260x400mm, outstanding of 3D printers at the same price.
Finally is the super high resolution:LXMaker has a very precise Z axis movement, which ensures the precision in practical. The theoratical precison of Z axis is 0.01mm, while the actual test precision is only 0.02 mm, which guarantees the super high quality of the workpiece, and can effectively prevent deformation in the printing process. Ths precision of X & Y axis can also be as high as 0.125mm.
In addition to excellent performance,the price of the Iron Man is very close to the people.The machine of maximum print size that need 2199 dollars was located in moderate level in similar products, so that consumers that come from all countries were able to withstand it. Because of this,LXMaker owned today's sales.
As time goes by, the point that people focus on the 3D printer was also not limited to the cost and performance, but rather more attention appearance and stability of the machine. Because considering this change,LXMaker introduced Iron Man series.
Iron Man series used all-metal structure and the whole machine has a very high stability.In addition,it was very strong.And it didn’t produce crack or fracture because of a slight collision. So it has better adaptability for long-distance transport, consumers do not have to worry about damage of product because of long bumpy.
At appearance of the machine, Iron Man series launched black red and blue creatively.According to their preferences,consumers can customize the 3d printer that belong to themselves.And three colors of the machine is filled with the fashion sense and the modern sense.This feature meet the requirements of the product appearance that digital technology enthusiasts. The method of LXMaker is designed to meet the trend of customization.
New products always went through a process that from performance to shape after published. Eventually,the overall level of products will be improved by leaps and bounds. 3D printer reflects the development process of this law fully. Therefore, the most critical for the business is to discover consumer’s mindset changes and adjustments based on the changes in a time.It is the only way that owned good yields and returns. The only constant is change.
