Don’t Call It a 3D Printer: Groundbreaking EVO Additive Manufacturing Center Has Arrived

Introducing EVO Additive Manufacturing System

Airwolf 3D makes history yet again with the release of its fifth generation machine: The EVO Additive Manufacturing Center. Packed with innovative features, the EVO is the fastest, strongest, highest-performing desktop additive manufacturing system in its class.

Isn’t the EVO just another industrial 3D printer? Not if we have anything to say about it.

Industrial 3D printers

“The EVO is completely new and it’s unlike anything out there,” explained Airwolf 3D Co-Founder and CEO Erick Wolf. “We took the technology that we perfected with our prosumer line of 3D printers and leveraged it to develop a machine that’s light years beyond anything else on the market. The EVO is faster, stronger, and more accurate than any desktop 3D printer — it delivers a premium 3D manufacturing experience at less than half the cost of machines that offer equivalent performance. Plus, it’s packed with new technology that dramatically changes the way we manufacture, including the ability to work in metals. The EVO far surpasses the capabilities of a traditional desktop 3D printer. It’s a true desktop Additive Manufacturing Center.”

What’s new in the EVO?

Industry-First features

Relentlessly committed to innovation, Airwolf 3D has released powerful new functionality that has never been seen in 3D printers before. Chief among these is PartSave™. Nicknamed “Zombie Mode,” this new feature fixes one of the biggest problems of 3D printing. Power users who print large parts understand the incredible frustration of running a print for hours only to have it fail due to power interruption or accidentally unplugging a printer. Those days are over.

PartSave™ remembers where the part was printing during power failure and then resumes the print as soon as power is restored.

Similarly, if you’ve ever lost a print because you run out of filament or experience a jam, EVO has a built-in solution for that, too. Just place the print head at the height you left off and FailSafe™ will do the rest, restoring your print and completing the job with time to spare.

User-Centered Design Optimized for Building Bigger Parts Than Ever Before

EVO was designed from the ground up with the user in mind. For schools and professionals who have asked us to set a higher standard for a “healthy” 3D printer, we’ve installed oversized HEPA and Carbon filters for active containment of UFP and VOC emissions. We made the machine easy to control with a new full-color 7″ MATRIX Touchscreen display. We also made it even easier to manufacture larger parts in more materials — including metal and soluble support — faster than ever, thanks to the EVO’s Tri-Heat™ Enclosed Build Environment, dual high-flow AX2 hot end, and Spotlight Manufacturing Vision System with ultra-bright, dimmable focused LEDs.

Ruggedized Construction

From its unitized, 100% aluminum frame and one-piece steel build plate to its oversized 1,000-watt power supply and automatic circuit breaker, EVO is built for performance. Manufacture parts up to EVO’s industry-leading 50-lb weight limit and rest assured the machine will carry out mission-critical applications even in ultra-harsh environments.

The EVO is available for an introductory price of $6,995 (US)* from Airwolf 3D and its authorized resellers with a targeted ship date of March 2018. Learn more about all of EVO’s features and read the press release here.
