an easier 3d printing experience

PRODUCTION UNIT OF OUR HIGH-FLOW BFP-ICARUS WILL RETAIL AT $35,000. PLEASE CHECK BACK IN A FEW WEEKS AS WE OVERHAUL AND UPDATE THIS PAGE. When we were designing the newest BFP-ICARUS printer, we took a step back and said, how can we make this easier for the customer to use? To accomplish this, we partnered with the best 3D Printing businesses in the industry. We went to Dyze Design and asked for their best extrusion system and we received the PRO series hotend and extruder, which includes a revolutionary Tungsten Carbide nozzle that will never wear down from reinforced filaments. We worked with GeckoTek to create a large, magnetic print plate that eliminates the need for painter’s tape, hairspray, glue, or anything else like that; for most types of filaments. We called the great people at Duet 3D and adopted their entire electronics line to be able to implement 16x microstepping at 256 interpolation, 32 bit processing, and live Z stepping for the perfect first layer. We took a huge step forward in safety, compared to other companies, by having BriskHeat make custom 110VAC heated beds that were designed for the BFP-ICARUS from the ground up. We heard customers tell us they were tired of working with belts and never really knowing if the tension was ever good enough – so we adopted a HiWin linear rail and TBI ballscrew setup on the X, Y, and Z axis to completely eliminate belts. This 3D Printer is 100% designed and built with the customer in mind.

linear motion. done right.

        • Anyone who knows machinery knows that ballscrews are not uncommon in professional equipment, but they are new for 3D Printers - and we are proud to say we have built one of the first production 3D Printers that utilize a full X, Y, and Z axis on ballscrews. One of the most asked questions we receive is "Why adopt ballscrews? Why not stay with belts?". And the answer is simple - ballscrews provide better accuracy over larger print areas, are more reliable, and provide a much better 3D Printing experience for the customer. The days of wondering if a belt is too tight, or too lose, or even breaking; is now in the past. Plus, we did this with all genuine parts by using HiWin linear rails and TBI ballscrews because we believe in quality parts.

Prints Stick and Prints Release. Simple.

      • If you have ever used a 3D Printer before, then you know getting parts to stick is one of the hardest, and ultimately, one of the most frustrating obstacles to deal with. Parts warping or lifting off the print plate immediately ruin your print, and time is money, so let's get it right the first time. That is why we have custom GeckoTek removable flex plates built for us that will make your life much easier. Throw away the glue sticks, hairpsray, slurry, tape, or anything else you use because the GeckoTek plate sticks to most common polymers - PLA, ABS, PETG, TPU, TPE, and more.

industrial extrusion from dyze design.

      • The hotend and extruder is one of the most important components of the 3D Printer. Most companies use the cheapest ones they can find and overlook this critical feature, instead, we turned to Dyze Design and invested heavily into their PRO series. With pushing power of 22lbs, 450C hotend temperature, and a 0.6mm Tungsten Carbide nozzle standard - there are zero compromises with this setup. The hardened Tungsten Carbide nozzle allows for fiber reinforced filaments to be printed without any worry of nozzle degradation, and the special exterior coating remains "slippery", so filament sticks to the print, not to the nozzle. You will not be disappointed with this combination.

We have your back.

      • When buying any equipment, every customer needs to know the level of service they will receive when problems arise. At Filament Innovations, our goal is to fix your problem same day, when possible. We are available by phone, email, and video chat (via Skype or FaceTime) to be able to handle your problem as quickly as possible. Every unit comes with a full one year warranty upon delivery date to the customer and lifetime tech support, when appropriate, for the unit. When you purchase a printer from us, we become your partner in FDM 3D Printing, and we know how important it is to have someone help you answer questions when problems arise.

an upgrade-able 3d printing platform. Meet the Typhoon.

          • As designers and fabricators, nothing is more unfair than buying a product and seeing it become obsolete in future updates. We are taking a different approach with the BFP-ICARUS because we will keep it upgrade-able with future add-ons. The first upgrade is coming in 2020 with the release of the Typhoon extruder from Dyze Designs. The Typhoon is a high-flow and high-output 2.85mm extruder capable of outputting 1.98lbs per hour. Our early beta testing shows a 75% decrease in print times via extruding larger layers and thicker walls at 75mm/s speed with ease. Pricing for the upgrade kit will follow soon.
