What is a dual extruder 3D printer?
A dual extruder 3D printer can produce 3D printed objects with different kinds of 3D printing materials (also known as filaments) and colors within a single print job.
What are the dual extruders for?
Dual extruders enable the 3D printer to produce objects with multiple filaments, such as a water-soluble 3D printing material, and multiple colors.
Why is high repeatability good for a 3D printer? What does high reliability mean?
3D printing is a process where an object is built up by thin layers. The 3D printer needs to move back and forth along the length of the model to create those thin layers. If the printer loses its position during that back-and-forth motion, the 3D printing process will no longer be aligned, and the 3D printed object will be ruined. The high repeatability and reliability ensure the printer does not become misaligned during the back-and-forth movements.
What does lightning speed mean?
Lightning speed refers to the overall amount of time the 3D printer takes to print an object. However, this speed is heavily influenced by the type of project being printed and how quickly the printer can switch directions during the back-and-forth movement. Having a <1 second switch time means the Pro2 Series can change directions while printing an object. This shortens the overall time needed to complete a 3D printing process. Keep in mind, the general time savings will still be influenced by the project type.
Why is a 1.5 mm lifting distance beneficial to a 3D printer?
Lifting distance refers to the clearance between the idle printing nozzle and the object being printed. There needs to be some distance between both to ensure the printer’s nozzle does not interfere with the printing. The 1.5 mm lifting distance on the Pro2 Series maintains enough distance between the idle nozzle and the model to not affect the printing process.

The Pro2 Series is compatible with a variety of 3D printing materials (known as filaments) to meet project requirements
Depending on the project goals, more than one 3D printing filament is necessary to accommodate varying structural or functional requirements (some such requirements include flexibility, and strength). Sometimes multiple filaments are required within the same print job. Having a 3D printer that is compatible with different filament types is both cost-saving and practical for print jobs multiple filaments.
A 3D printer a metal build plate that provides even heat distribution for better quality 3D printing
The build plate is a heated, flat surface in every 3D printer where all projects are printed. An even heat surface on a build plate is crucial for creating high-quality 3D printed parts. It also ensures that all 3D printing filaments are not damaged due to unequal heat distribution.
HEPA air filtration removes toxic particles released during the 3D printing process
The Pro2 Series has HEPA air filtration to clean the air of any particles (including nano-particles) released during the 3D printing process. The HEPA air filter works effectively in classrooms, offices, and in large and small workspaces. The Pro2 Series’ HEPA air filtration operates silently, designed to work quietly in the background of any workspace.
Use a 7-inch touch screen for efficiency and monitor the printing process with 3D printing software
The Pro2 Series’ 7-inch touch screens allow users to interact with the printer directly. It also provides on-screen assistance and visual model selections to simplify operating and monitoring the 3D printer and 3D printing process. As with all Raise3D 3D printers, the Pro2 Series is compatible with ideaMaker, a 3D slicing software, and RaiseCloud, a cloud-based 3D printing management platform. This wireless connection allows users to keep track of every print job while on the move.
Precaution measures are installed to save work in case the 3D printing material runs out or if there is a power outage
Power loss can cancel and ruin an ongoing 3D printing project. However, the Pro2 Series’ power loss secures the 3D printing process in an unexpected power outage. In addition, the filament run-out sensor on the Pro2 Series extruders prevents ruined print jobs due to running out of filament.
The full metal frame acts as a reliable motion system for smooth movement and precise positioning for higher quality printing
High-quality 3D printing comes from high-quality 3D printers. The Pro2 Series uses a full metal frame to create a specific motion system that allows the machine to smoothly glide as it prints. This motion system works with precise positioning to ensure 3D print jobs are as accurate as possible. Interchangeable nozzles allow the Pro2 Series to print at different levels of detail.
