The AXIOM Dual enjoys its place as the world’s leading prosumer 3D printer because of its independently controllable hot ends that allow printing in two colors or two different materials. Combine that functionality with the power of Direct Drive and you have a state-of-the-art workhorse that boasts enhanced dual capability — even for difficult-to-print materials, such as industrial-grade polycarbonate and polypropylene and flexible nylon- and rubber-based materials like TPE and TPU.
AXIOM Dual Direct Drive is available as a full-fledged 3D-printer or as a standalone Direct Drive upgrade. Power users who desire the ultimate in flexibility and performance are encouraged to opt for a combination of the AXIOM Dual base model, along with the Direct Drive Upgrade package. This configuration gives the best of both worlds by taking advantage of AXIOM’s modular construction.
Because the Direct Drive Upgrade is available as an End-User Replaceable Cassette (ERC), you can swap between the classic AXIOM’s bowden-style extrusion system and the new Direct Drive system, depending on which is best suited for a particular application.
