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.
