magnetic levitation 3d printer


Giacomo Falaschi sent us his Falla3D new printer project: you can have more details on the project by looking to this interview here.

Fa)(a is a fully modular and scalable printer, able to print with any material (FDM technology) and entirely customizable in every single aspect and component.

Here are some figures:

Resolution: X-Y axis positioning 15 micron, Z-axis positioning 5 micron. Accurate printing up to 50 micron

Speed: silent and fast printing, up to 200 mm/s

Material: capable of printing with PLA, ABS, Nylon, HIPS, PVA

Wireless printing enabled

The main and unusual technology hidden on this printer is MagLev tech! The X and Y-axis supporting profiles hide a Neodymium magnet each, thus strongly reducing the friction between printing support and guides. So, the printer is faster and quieter than its competitors and also the stepping motors, facing a lower friction, can grant a better acceleration (and better controlled too) that means better resolution. Finally yet importantly, the wearing out of nylon guide rails is nearly defeated.

You can still provide your submission to our 3D Contest!
