Following the trials from January to March, there have been a lot of changes, the print head has undergone a complete redesign.

We added : 3 ventilators which blow hot air on the piece, one isolation of the hot area, thanks to a special silicon which can endure 500°C, an exterior skirt made of silicon gathers the hot air on the piece, a new system of lock in position, news ball joints, a new system of quick deconnection, a new cooler turbine... Almost everything has been modified, in order to improve the quality of prints and the fiability !

The whole line of extrusion (Extrudeurs, cooling tubes and print head) can be disconnected and extracted of the machine in some minuts, thanks to 4 knurled buttons, which facilitate greatly the maintenance.

This new print head will be the one delivered on series production machines.

Technical specifications of the ABSolutexT are here.

  • Gentlemen, start your engine...;) We just started tests, but honestly it's showing promise, and we are confident. In ABSolute we trust !

    Et c'est parti ! Nous commençons juste la batterie de test, mais c'est vraiment prometteur. On était confiant: mais maintenant on sait qu'on est dans le vrai.:p

  • Awesome, bulky, does it provides with improved airflow, isn't it? does the air from the small fans go to the nozzle tips? Does it acts like a PLA layer fan?
    Regards,

    Nice work
