Forged from the Pro2 Series, Raise3D’s newly launched Pro3 Series professional dual extruder 3D printers meet the needs of both production and multi-sized rapid prototyping, with high precision and round-the-clock stable operation. The Pro3 Series is comprised of the Pro3, with a build volume of 300x300x300mm, and the Pro3 Plus, with a build volume of 300x300x605mm, fulfilling the requirements of large-scale production and multi-sized rapid prototyping. A high-quality printer design that includes enhanced features and a smart assistant system known as EVE, all of which make the Pro3 Series dual extruder 3D printers an excellent option for professional 3D printing.
The Pro3 Series dual extruder 3D printers connect with Raise3D’s 3D printing software ecosystem, that includes a 3D slicing program, ideaMaker, an open-software template called ideaMaker Library, and our cloud-based 3D printing software RaiseCloud.
The Pro3 Series features upgraded printing platform features for high-quality printing performance and a better overall experience. The new auto bed leveling makes setting up your 3D printer quicker and simpler.
The new flexible build plate also allows for the effortless removal of 3D printed parts. The Z-axis rod stiffness has also been increased by 75%, in order to deliver a more stable performance. These structural changes enable the Pro3 Series to provide better print results and an easier printing experience.
The Pro3 Series is equipped with an independent modular extruder with a dual extrusion system. This allows the Pro3 Series to print using a variety of filaments, reduce clogging, and allow the convenient disassembly and replacement of components.
The hot end of the Pro3 Series is easy to remove, which can be done without using tools, making it simple to replace and maintain. Users can also easily take off the front cover of the extruder to accurately locate common printing occurrences such as filament jams.
Either a power outage or a filament outage (when the filament runs out) can cause a print job to be lost if they occur in the middle of the 3D printing process. However, the Pro3 Series has a filament run-out sensor on its extruders to alert when the filament is about to run out and saves the print job. It also has a second-generation power loss function to save the printing status in the event of a power outage and can continue printing from the same point when power is restored.
The Pro3 Series has a built-in EVE assistant system, preloaded with common printing problems and corresponding solutions. The EVE assistant can guide users to accurately locate and resolve issues that could affect the final print job.
The EVE assistant has a function that gives users reminders about regular scheduled interventions to ensure that printer maintenance is performed on time. It also helps reduce maintenance time and communication costs for an efficient maintenance process.
The Pro3 Series replaces the drag chain cable with a lightweight cable, to reduce the weight of the extruder and keep the center of gravity in the middle during printing for more stable print quality.
The Pro3 Series also uses digital temperature measurement, for an accurate temperature reading to help prevent jamming.
The Pro3 dual extruder 3D printer can print up to 300 x 300 x 300 mm. This flexibility allows the Pro3 Series to produce various kinds of tools, parts, and components. Some uses for 3D printers with this kind of build volume is in creating 3D printed tools to make professional manufacturing and rapid-prototyping more efficient.
Superior Bed Leveling
Bed leveling is the process of confirming that the printing platform is as level as possible. The Pro3 Series has this leveling procedure as an automated function. Auto bed leveling will maintain the distance between the print nozzles and the bed, to create a uniform build area. This improves bed adhesion and allows the extruder to adjust to even the most minor of surface contour changes for better final print quality.
Cloud Based Print Tracking
The Pro3 Series uses a camera to monitor the entire 3D printing process of every print job. This camera operates by connecting to RaiseCloud, allowing users to keep track of every print job remotely and while on the move. This ability to check the 3D printing process gives end users peace of mind.
Accurate & Durable
High-quality 3D printing comes from high-quality 3D printers. The Pro3 Series desktop 3D printer uses a full metal frame to create a specific motion system that allows the machine to smoothly glide as it prints. This motion system works with precise positioning to ensure 3D print jobs are as accurate as possible.
3D printing is a process where an object is built up by thin layers. The 3D printer needs to move back and forth along the length of the model to create those thin layers. If the printer loses its position during that back-and-forth motion, the 3D printing process will no longer be aligned, and the 3D printed object will be ruined. The high repeatability and reliability ensure the printer does not become misaligned during the back-and-forth movements.
Lightning speed refers to the overall amount of time the 3D printer takes to print an object. However, this speed is heavily influenced by the type of project being printed and how quickly the printer can switch directions during the back-and-forth movement. Having a <1 second switch time means the Pro3 Series can change directions while printing an object. This shortens the overall time needed to complete a 3D printing process. Keep in mind, the general time savings will still be influenced by the project type.
Lifting distance refers to the clearance between the idle printing nozzle and the object being printed. There needs to be some distance between both to ensure the printer’s nozzle does not interfere with the printing. The 1.5 mm lifting distance on the Pro3 Series maintains enough distance between the idle nozzle and the model to not affect the printing process.
Another safety feature of the Pro3 Series is that it can automatically detect when a door is opened and will immediately pause the print.
