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.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
