3D Printer Features

SPEED

Airwolf 3D AXIOM models operate at printing speeds of up to 250 millimeters per second, and travel speeds as high as 400 millimeters per second. At Airwolf 3D we understand that time is critical, and this is why we have developed one of the fastest desktop 3D printers on the market.

SIZE

Size limitation is currently a major drawback with most 3D printers on the market. Not at Airwolf 3D. With a huge build platform, the AXIOM series can print large models without having to print in multiple pieces.

ACCURACY

With a 40 micron minimum layer height, and an X, Y resolution of 20 microns, the AXIOM series printers are extremely accurate. Airwolf 3D has worked hard on balancing resolution and speed, and has come up with a system that provides the best of both worlds.

DURABILITY

At Airwolf 3D, we don’t only make and sell 3D printers, but we also use them as a tool on a daily basis for our own production line. This requires a durable machine that requires little maintenance. We hold these same standards for our customers, and have constructed our printers with the highest quality parts possible.

MATERIALS

The list continues to grow……At 40 materials and counting, the possibilities are endless. With a large temperature range, and the ability to reach up to 320C on the hotend, the AXIOM series is able to print with numerous materials, ranging from PLA and ABS to TPU, Nylon and Polycarbonate.
