Starting with the release of the D2880 v1.2 and D1700 in March of 2018 we have committed to five year frames!
So what does that mean?
As new technology comes out we will continue to incorporate it into our new machines, this is currently done on a six month rotation. When upgrades are incorporated into new machines we will offer the upgrades for all machines currently in the field.
TLDR: a D1700 or D2880 v1.2 purchased today, with upgrades, remain at the leading edge of tech until 2023!
At MRRF this year we showed everyone what we have been building up to over the last three years. From day one we committed ourselves to sourcing only the best components while maintaining a lean manufacturing process. By doing this we have been able to produce the best product possible while keeping the printers at unbeatable prices!
Now to the fun stuff the D2880 v1.2, we took everything we have learned up to this point and updated our previous printers. No worries, with a 305x305x500mm build volume it is still a beast! We upgraded our Z motion system to a dual lead screw design improving strength and stability. We also gave the unit a face lift with the new smooth extrusion on the front. We continue to offer upgrades for the unit such as the high temp hotend and full enclosure. For more info on the D2880 v1.2 click
We didnt stop there. At times we found that the we needed a smaller unit to fit in the tighter places, we can only shove so many D2880s on a shelf. With the unbeatable reliably and performance of the D2880 we didn't want to stray too far from that design and so the D1700 was born. With a 305x305x305mm build volume, this printer is no mini.....more like eight minis in one (if you smell what I’m stepping in). We took the D2880 v1.2 and just shrunk the Z axis, while keeping the price at $1250 (only $1200 right now). You still get all the same features as its big brother just in a smaller package!
