Both beginners and advanced users will appreciate our ready-to-go product philosophy. This means you go from package to printing in minutes with two robust pre-assembled components. Don’t sweat over connections as the X40 comes with fully pre-routed cables, taking time and guesswork out of the equation.
The cost of adopting new technologies bridles their adoption. Technology is constantly improving upon itself, yielding new products and tools that improve efficiency and drive down costs. We believe the standard asking price of $2,000 for an IDEX printer is far too high and decided to do something about it. We set out to create a printer that offers everything a $2,000 machine is capable of at one-third the price. Enter: the WEEDO X40!
We’re not here just to bring you a machine that beats the big players on price. We wanted to offer something extraordinary. We equipped X40 with powerful features that improve the printing process, such as WIFI, on-the-go video print monitoring, and a built in program for auto-calibrating your printers’ extruders.
This smart printer activates the self-detection function when started. It detects the printer's extruder heating, platform heating and XYZ operation status that allows the device to know that it’s working and to identify when something is not working properly. However, you only activate this function if you wish to—since it is manually turned on and off.
Need to leave in a hurry? No worries! The WEEDOX40 3D Printer automatically shuts down when prints finish or after a standby timeout. This energy saving auto-shutdown feature adds a crucial layer of extra safety. We’ve also added essential quality of life features such as print resume after power loss. Don’t let the frustration of sudden power outages stop your progress. When power is restored, the print will resume where it left off.
The built in camera module on the X40 allows you to check on your printer while you’re away. You can also start prints over LAN with CURA and Wiibuilder slicer integrations.
Our WEEDO X40 app brings convenience to the forefront by enabling you to control the printer via your mobile device. If you use a social media profile (such as Facebook) to log into the app you’ll be able to receive notifications from your social account when prints are complete.
Our Independent Dual Extruder (IDEX) print heads allows for fast printing with two colors and/or differing materials. This robust printing system augments your ability to create complex geometries and new combinations of materials in unending variety. The WEEDO X40 does more so you can create higher quality prints faster than on other single extruder machines.
The X40 automatically levels the bed before each print to ensure a perfect first layer every time you press ‘print’. We wanted to go above and beyond in the implementation of our leveling algorithm by optimizing the process for special IDEX specific modes like copy and mirror mode. Our bilinear automatic leveling ensures that when you’re producing multiples of parts using copy and mirror mode you get consistent, successful prints from both print heads.
Whether it's brittle filament that accidentally snaps before reaching the print head or you reach the end of a roll before a print is through, the X40 has you covered. Two filament runout sensors detect missing filament on either extruder and will suspend printing activity until the roll is replaced.
Can’t remember what you named your .gcode? Don’t worry! The graphical print interface displays a picture preview and details for each model, making it easy to identify your file before pressing ‘print’.
Explore the X40’s four unique printing modes: two-colour, water-soluble, duplicate, and mirror printing. With each sliced file, model size and coordinate parameters are added into the GCODE file to print mirrors or duplicates at will.
The X40 will automatically shut down when a job is completed or well as after a standby timeout when no jobs are present. That means the X40 saves on energy costs and operates with an extra level of safety.
If your X40 experiences a power loss while printing (due to a power outage, for example), the printer’s progress will be saved for you to resume when you’re able.
We have developed intelligent slicing software specially for the WEEDO X40. In the Wiibuilder slicer you can separate an active STL model and choose which extruder will print which part. From there you can set special material settings for each extruder. The Wiibuilder slicer includes a colour rendering function so you can see a render of the finished part before taking it to the printer.
The X40’s UI is user friendly, coming equipped with a multi-language interface. The printer currently supports the following languages: English, French, Italian, Spanish, German, Japanese and Chinese. Simply select your language of choice from the interface after the first boot.
The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic are far reaching and widely known. The pandemic has brought a particular set of challenges to the manufacturing industry as ports are closed and companies that historically relied on outsourcing parts to distant countries are unable to obtain the parts they need. The ability to locally produce custom parts through 3D printing is an ideal solution to a pandemic-affected world. We’re delighted to further expand the 3D printing industry by introducing an innovative, high quality, performance-packed IDEX 3D printer: the X40.
1. The following 3D printed parts will be upgraded to injection molded parts on the final product:
(1) Camera shell
(2) Runout sensor shell
(3) Cooling fan air duct.
2. Material case to collect the extruded material.
3. Further firmware and software optimisations to provide a better two-colour printing experience.
We first came into contact with 3D printing while developing educational robots. Our team is passionate about bridging the gap between technology and education, and decided back then that we had to get involved in creating 3D printers that would be suitable for educational purposes. From a small team of 3 to a growing community of 30 members, WEEDO now supplies 3D printers to hundreds of schools, helping to make science and technology more popular among students. With your help, the X40 will be not only a defining step in our story but a product that changes how the industry sees and uses dual extrusion printers.
