Duplicator 5S - Steel ExoFrame
The Duplicator 5S is one of the largest desktop 3D printers in the world! Unique in size and speed, the Duplicator 5S is a heavy duty workhorse. Boasting a massive build envelope of 305mm x 205mm x 575mm this printer will easily find it's place in the workshops of professional model builders, architects, and your average serial prototyper.
The Duplicator 5S features a large (16mm) Z-Axis threaded rod allowing for sturdier vertical movement. Featured in all Duplicator 5 series printers is the fastest known extruder system in 3D printing...the Bowden extruder setup prints at speeds in excess of 300mm/s. These speeds are complemented by a built-in cooling fan designed to minimize warping and improve extrusion layering. The circuitry and electronics found in the Duplicator 5S are second to none in terms of quality. The Duplicator 5S comes with a custom built motor shield, custom rotary dial touch controller/LCD/SD Card combo, and custom endstop switches.
The improved 5S Rock XV Steel ExoFrame provides a sturdy frame allowing for a taller build capability than any other desktop printer under $10,000.00 USD. The LCD menu panel, rotary touch dial, and SD Card slot are located at waist height when the machine is placed on a table-top or desk. This arrangement allows for a more convenient menu viewing angle and control access. The powder-coated frame is currently only available in Blue.
