Raise3D’s award-winning Pro2 Series is recognized as a benchmark and gold standard for professional 3D printing applications and 24/ 7 reliability. From Raise3D’s Pro2 Series is the Pro2 and the Pro2 Plus, dual extruder 3D printers with high-resolution, for manufacturing and rapid-prototyping projects of varying sizes.
The Pro2 Series has a metal build plate for even heat distribution, along with a full metal frame for smooth movement and precise positioning, and is compatible with a variety of 3D printing materials. The Pro2 Series is complete with precaution measures to save work, a 7-inch touch screen for efficient monitoring of the 3D printing process, and a HEPA air filter. As with all 3D printers from Raise3D, the Pro2 Series can pair with: ideaMaker, a 3D slicer software, ideaMaker Library, a platform for sharing 3D printer files with those in the Raise3D community, and RaiseCloud, a cloud-based 3D printing management platform. Finally, as with all Raise3D products, the Pro2 Series is both ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified.
The Pro 2 Series features a heated build plate (the flat surface in every 3D printer where all projects are printed). An even heat surface on your build plate is crucial for creating high-quality 3D printed parts. The heated build plate also helps to prevent damage to your filament due to unequal heat distribution.
By utilizing a heated build plate, the Pro 2 Series is a massive improvement when it comes to Bed Adhesion. The hot build surface will keep extruded filament from cooling too much, too soon. As the filament cools, it adds internal stress on your machine. This also helps to prevent warping in your print.
High-quality 3D printing comes from high-quality 3D printers. The Pro2 Series uses a full metal frame to create a specific motion system that allows the machine to smoothly glide as it prints. The amount of speed and movement of the print head has a clear impact on your project's print quality. By making sure the Pro2 Series has the smoothest movement possible, Raise 3D has done their part to ensure that your prints will come out pristinely clean.
This motion system works with precise positioning to ensure 3D print jobs are as accurate as possible. Interchangeable nozzles allow the Pro2 Series to print at different levels of detail.
Power loss can cancel and ruin an ongoing 3D printing project. However, the Pro2 Series’ power loss secures the 3D printing process in an unexpected power outage. In addition, the filament run-out sensor on the Pro2 Series extruders prevents ruined print jobs due to running out of filament.
This allows for the Pro2 Series to easily save the printing status of your project in the event of a power outage, and can then continue printing from the same point once power has been restored. This is just one of the many features which makes the Pro2 Series stand out as some of the most intuitive printers on the market!
High-quality, high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters are effective in capturing airborne particles, and can theoretically remove at least 99.97% of dust, pollen, mold, bacteria, and any airborne particles with a size of 0.3 microns (µm).
The Pro2 Series has HEPA air filtration to clean the air of any particles (including nano-particles) released during the 3D printing process. The HEPA air filter works effectively in classrooms, offices, and in large and small workspaces. The Pro2 Series’ HEPA air filtration operates silently, designed to work quietly in the background of any workspace.
The Pro2 Series’ 7-inch touch screens allow users to interact with the printer directly. It also provides on-screen assistance and visual model selections to simplify operating and monitoring the 3D printer and 3D printing process.
As with all Raise3D 3D printers, the Pro2 Series is compatible with ideaMaker, a 3D slicing software, and RaiseCloud, a cloud-based 3D printing management platform. This wireless connection allows users to keep track of every print job while on the move.
The Pro2 Plus 3D printer can print up to 305 x 305 x 605 mm. This flexibility allows the Pro2 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 Pro2 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 Pro2 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 Pro2 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 Pro2 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 Pro2 Series maintains enough distance between the idle nozzle and the model to not affect the printing process.
Another safety feature of the Pro2 Series is that it can automatically detect when a door is opened and will immediately pause the print.
