Well, it uses the same bed and electronics as the UM2, so many benefits there. It is one board and requires no fan. The other benefit is the use of the PT100 sensor. So now the head doesn't need all the thermocouple boards on the head etc... Much cleaner appearance. The covered gear in the back on the feeder and the metal housing are safety features as a result of the CE certification. But also since the bed is from the UM2 it has a Z Stepper with an integrated acme thread rod which moves a ton faster. It really changes the whole feeling of the printer. You will be very happy with the machine.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
