Series Production

Parts automatically removed from build surface allowing for continuous production, bridging the gap between prototyping and full series production.

Support Free Printing

Printing gantry can be set to 15°, 25°, 35°, 45° angles, unlocking the ability for support free printing and reducing the possibility of intricate prints being damaged during support removal.
