Introducing a new era of 3d printing. The Formbot T-Rex 2+ large format 3D Printer with Independent Dual Extruders (IDEX), 225 point automatic unified bed leveling with dual zone bed heating.
The next generation of high performance 3D printer constructed with the high quality components which incorporates the latest technology in 3D printing. Available in two heights. This is the 500mm version. The 700mm version can be found here.
The Formbot T-Rex 2+ 500 is a seriously big printer! With a build volume of 400 x 400 x 500 mm, you get a huge 80 litres of area to print in! Assembled out of high quality components, the Formbot T-Rex 2+ 500 uses incredibly thick linear rail and bearing to ensure smooth movement, and industrial ball screws to attain incredible z accuracy. Built with independent dual extruders allows the Formbot T-Rex 2+ 500 to print in more ways so suit your requirements! Print with two materials for soluble support, dual colours, or print two objects at the same time for twice the printing speed!
With 80,000 cubic centimetres of volume, the Formbot T-Rex 2+ 500 has three times the build volume of the Raise N2 for half the price, and over eight times the volume of the Ultimaker 3!
Never be constrained by your build volume again, and print big!
Dual Independent Extruder (IDEX)
With two independent extrusion nozzles, the Formbot T-Rex 2+ 500 can print two materials at once with no oozing and no damage to the model, a feature unique to the Formbot among printers this big!
With two independent extruder heads, you can print a model with two colours, a model with two materials, a model with soluble supports, or two of the same model at the same time!
Printing with PVA supports that dissolve in water has never been easier with the Independent Extruder System of the Formbot T-Rex2+.
The Formbot TRex2+ can print complex models using soluble support structures. In this video, e3D Scaffold is being used in conjunction with PLA to print this bike helmet prototype. The IDEX system ensures a clean print without contamination as the independent print heads dock themselves in the cleaning stations when not in use. Then wipe themselves clean prior to printing.
Ideal for designers and engineers. This is a 3D Print of a 1:1 complex prototype model of a bicycle helmet. The IDEX independent dual extruder system enables the Formbot TRex2+ to print complex 3d models. The grey PVA support material can be easily removed by soaking the part in water, leaving a perfectly 3d printer part.
True multi material 3d printing is here thanks to the Formbot IDEX extruder system. This screw driver handle prototype was 3D printed using a hard PLA material combined with a Flexible Rubber TPU to simulate in-mold decoration of injection molding parts. The Formbot can print these without the need of a prime tower or ooze shield thanks to the IDEX extruder system which wipes nozzles clean whilst the are docked away between uses.
The Formbot TRex2+ is ideal for prop builders and cosplay enthusiasts with it's massive build volume and print quality.
Expand your creative freedom with the capacity to build larger than life models with the TRex2+ like this creepy Halloween prop, ready to pounce!
With an independent heat bed, the Formbot T-Rex 2+ 500 can reach 120 degrees across the entire 400 x 400 build plate in mere minutes! Plugging into the wall, the heat bed has dual zones of heating, allowing you to heat the entire plate, or just the center if you're printing a smaller object.
At the 3D Printer Superstore we bundle all T-Rex2+ printers with the upgrade 400 x 400mm aluminum dual zone heated print bed as standard. This ensured maximum adhesion to the print bed for large prints.
The build surface includes a high powered KEENOVO silicon heating pad with dual zone heating up to 120 degrees Celsius within a couple of minutes. This heating pad includes an independent Digital Controller that enables you to just heat the central 200x200mm region for smaller prints or heat the full 400x400mm zone for larger builds.
With an integrated BL Touch sensor, the Formbot T-Rex 2+ 500 takes an incredible 225 reference points of the bed, creating a leveling mesh that ensures your print is perfectly aligned to the bed of the Formbot without all that tedious mucking about with levelling.
With the newly added babystepping, it's easier than ever to fine tune your printer to your exacting needs, without the stress!
To ensure the cleanest of prints, when not in use the print heads park themselves in bays with a tray to catch oozing, and a wire brush to clean the nozzle every time it's used.
With quick interchangeable hot ends, it's cheaper and easier to print exactly how you want. Put on a 0.25mm nozzle for super high detail, or up to a 1.0mm nozzle to print faster. Not just limited to brass, all the nozzle sizes also come in steel, allowing you to print any exotic filaments you wish with ease.
Built with high end components, the Formbot T-Rex 2+ 500 hasn't cut corners with build quality. Genuine Meanwell power supply, BLTouch sensor, Keenovo heat bed, NSK bearings, and properly processed aluminium extrusion ensures that your printer prints reliably and beautifully.
Print big. Without the hassle.
The Z-Axis of Formbot T-Rex2+ is constructed with high quality industrial grade 20mm trapezoidal linear rails in conjunction with dual 12mm TBI Motion Ball Screws.
This ensures smooth motion, high precision auto leveling and durability and ultimately exceptional print quality.
The Formbot TRex2+ uses dual 12mm TBI motion ball screws for Z axis motion ensuring precise motion and exceptional print quality.
This cross section shows the Groove Shape of the TBI Motion precision Ball Screws. The High efficiency of balls screws are vastly superior to conventional screws with smoother motion and minimal axial play.
