Raise3D’s award-winning E2 is recognized as a benchmark and gold standard for professional 3D printing applications and 24/ 7 reliability.
What Makes the E2 a Professional Desktop 3D Printer?
Professional 3D printers, like the E2, are well-built and designed to be user-friendly, resulting in a better 3D printing experience for every application and user.
What is IDEX? Why is IDEX important?
IDEX stands for independent dual extruders, meaning the extruders can operate independently of one another along the same axis during printing to perform more advanced functions.
The E2 is a desktop 3D printer with IDEX. With IDEX, one extruder can remain motionless and off to the side while the second extruder prints the model, minimizing the risk of the nozzle on the motionless extruder interfering with the print job during dual or single extrusion printing.
What are Mirror Mode and Duplication Mode? Why are These Functions Important?
IDEX can perform two specialized functions, Mirror Mode and Duplication Mode.
Mirror Mode prints a model and an inverse of that same model at the same time. It is convenient because it eliminates the need to create an additional design file for the inverse model, and it saves the time that is usually spent printing the inverse model separately.
Duplication Mode is synchronized printing, meaning it uses both extruders to print a model and an exact copy of that model at the same time. It can double production capacity within the same timeframe.
What are Easy Swap Print Heads? And Why are They Important?
Easy Swap Print Heads are a convenient feature of the E2. These print heads are easy to remove, making it simple and quick to swap out a print head for another print head. There are a variety of reasons why swapping print heads is necessary, such as having to use a print head with a different type of nozzle.
Any spare Easy Swap Print Heads can easily be prepared with hardened nozzles, and nozzles of different sizes, such as 0.4, 0.6, and 0.8 nozzles to switch in a few steps and get back to printing.
What is Auto Bed Leveling? And Why is it Important?
A level bed is an important contributor to the quality of the final printing result. Bed leveling is the process of testing and confirming that the printing platform is completely level before beginning to print. It can be a time-consuming process to ensure this.
However, user-friendly 3D printers, like the E2, feature Auto Bed Leveling. Auto Bed Leveling uses a sensor to measure the distance between the printing bed and the nozzle at different locations of the bed and uses this information to adjust the nozzle to make sure the right distance between the bed and the nozzles is maintained during printing. This means the extruder can adjust to minor surface contour changes, resulting in improved bed adhesion a better final print quality.
What is a Flexible Build Plate? And Why is It Important?
A build plate is a flat surface that temporarily adheres to the bottom layer of the model during the printing. It is also the surface that an adhesive is applied to when printing with certain filaments. At times, prints may get damaged when being removed from the build plate.
The E2 features the BuildTak FlexPlate, a flexible build plate. The BuildTak FlexPlate bends, allowing for easy removal of 3D printed parts, minimizing potential damage that may occur to the final print when removing the print from the plate. The flexible build plate can also quickly regain its original shape to continue printing.
What is the Camera? And Why is it Important?
The E2 features a camera to monitor the entire 3D printing process of every print job. This camera operates by connecting to RaiseCloud allowing users to keep track of every print job remotely. The ability to check the 3D printing process gives peace of mind.
