With such a wide spread of new machines and the retirement of the R19 series, we thought to give you a quick breakdown of the important specs of each machine, their differences and who they're for.
Introducing first is the enormous BCN3D W50, the W stands for Workhorse and the 50 is to the volume of the machine, which is 50 Liters or 50,400 meters cubed of print volume! This translates to 420mm x 300mm x 400mm (XYZ), that's a lot of printing space.
Even in duplication/mirror mode you have a huge printing volume of roughly 210mm x 300mm x 400mm. Still larger than most of the competition.
The W50 will be compatible with a wide variety of nozzles, 0.4mm/0.8mm/1.0mm and the Hotend X (0.6mm) which is specifically made for abrasive materials like PAHTCF15, PETCF15, and Ultrafuse 316L.
So who is it for?
The BCN3D W50 is made for these types of applications:
Next up is W50's younger brother, BCN3D W27 follows the same convention as before a 27 Liter Workhorse of a 3D printer.
Coming at 420mm x 300mm x 220mm, and with the same array of features and capabilities as the W50, the W27 is a great choice when you don't require a tall printing height and still want the reliability and flexibility of the W50.
The W27 can also serve as a second machine for when the W50 is at full capacity, to take some smaller part jobs in order to free up the W50 for your bigger parts.
The Smart Cabinet was made to support the workhorses around the clock, increase reliability and keep filaments in optimal conditions.
Here's what the cabinet provides at a glance:
The Smart Cabinet will be available in bundles for the W50 and W27 or standalone.
Last but not least, is BCN3D's 25 Liter Desktop (D25) 3D Printer. Coming at 420mm x 300mm x 200mm, it is the smallest 3D printer in the line up, though still much bigger than a lot of the competition.
The D25 inherits almost all high quality components and technology from the workhorse family. The main difference you might observe is the open chamber of the D25 versus the closed chambers of the W27 and W50.
It will support the 0.3mm / 0.4mm / 0.5mm (abrasive) / 0.6mm / 0.8mm and 1.0mm brass hotends and have official support for the basic material group only. The reason for this is due to its open build chamber. While other materials are not officially supported, that doesn't mean you can't use them, with the open filament system and the incredible BCN3D Cura software, you can use this printer however you like.
This printer is geared for, you guessed it, desktop users. With its open concept, easy on the eye grey colour it's a printer you want your co-workers, and clients to marvel at!
It will be a good fit for:
That was a lot of information so we broke it down for you in these easy to read charts:
