Independent Dual Extrusion Printer (IDEX)
The most exciting part of the new BCN Sigma 3D printer is the revolutionary independent dual extrusion system. This IDEX system means that 2 extruder heads on the machine are not joined together but instead operate independently, one head at a time. This unique design allowed us to print and complete the most difficult dual extrusion 3D printed part we have ever encountered (see picture below). Every other machine that we tried this part on failed - the BCN Sigma was the only machine to deliver.
Print with EVERY Material
The BCN Sigma comes standard with 2 all-metal hotends which are capable of printing at up to 280C. That means you are able to print with every 3D printing material including PLA, ABS, HIPS, Nylon, Flexible filaments, metal hybrids, and so many more.

Quick and Painless Setup
Once you open your new BCN Sigma printer you will be up and printing within 10 minutes. There is no assembly necessary with this printer. Additionally, each BCN3D printer is shipped in frustration free packaging to save you even more time.
Enjoy untethered printing every day with the BCN Sigma. Each Sigma comes with a built in touch screen LCD which allows you to print all your files using an included SD card.

BCN3D is confident in the quality of their 3D printers which is why they provide an industry leading 1 year warranty.
Seeing is Believing
The BCN Sigma really speaks for itself when you see it in action. Take a look at the video below to learn a little more about the BCN Sigma and its IDEX system.
