BCN3D - Sigma - R2017
The BCN3D Sigma R2017 is an enhanced reinvention of desktop 3D printers characterized by its IDEX, which allows it to work in a simple and effective way. Print both soluble support structures, multimaterial and multicolor models or even cut down the printing times combining different nozzle sizes.
Unique IDEX system
Thanks to the unique IDEX (Independent Dual Extruder) system, the Sigma is a versatile tool able to print multicolor or multimaterial, with special emphasis to the print of water-soluble supports, while minimizes the habitual downsides of dual extrusion. The idle toolhead remains parked, preventing the dripping of molten plastic onto parts.
Flexible range of hotends
The wide range of available hotends (sold separately) boosts its versatility, allowing the user to use the most suitable hotend for every project or even combine different hotends to cut down printing times or get more solid model without giving up quality.
Multimaterial or Multicolor
Create functional parts by combining the properties of two different materials, like rigid and flexible filaments. Or make your designs more attractive by printing with two colours.
The re-engineered version of the Sigma features new cooling strategies, improved stepper drivers and a brand new capacitive touchscreen, which result in better surface quality, more reliability, lower operating sound and smoother user experience. With assisted leverling a probe is used on the extruders to measure the build platform when adjusted. Touchscreen graphics tell exactly how much the levelling screws should be adjusted for optimum build platform flatness.
The BCN3D Sigma is considered as one of the Top Quality 3D printers by the 3DHubs users and printer owners and has gain a great reputation within the community as a innovative and sturdy machine. “Best of Workhorse 3D Printers” in the 3D Hubs 2017 3D Printer Guide, based on 8.000+ reviews from 3D printer owners. That is a huge recognition among more than 500 competitors.
