If you’re an experienced 3D printing user and in need of a large 3D Printer look no further. Modix 3D printers were designed to make achieving your 3D printing goals as simple as possible. Boasting some of the largest print volumes on the market, Modix printers enable users to print very large models in one complete piece – resulting in stronger finished parts and reducing the amount of time you’ll need to spend on post-processing.

Each Modix printer is comprised of the highest quality components and sourced from some of the best-known brands in the industry, such as E3D, Duet, and Hiwin to name a few. In addition to using premium components every aspect of Modix 3D printers, from the Chassis to the Motion system, has been designed with heavy-duty use in mind while also remaining modular enough for any future upgrades and new technologies that may disrupt the market as 3D printing evolves.


All Modix 3D Printers are sold and delivered as self-assembly kits. Purchasing and assembling a 3D Printer kit has many advantages over traditional fully assembled models. While one of the biggest advantages is the hands-on, and in-depth knowledge you will gain of your printer while following the assembly instructions; 3D printer kits also represent a high level of cost savings and flexibility when it comes to selecting where your new machine will fit within in your production facility.

The in-depth knowledge you will gain also ensures that you will have the necessary skills to confidently upgrade, maintain, and eventually customize your Modix 3D Printer - ensuring that your machine will remain operating and continue to play a pivotal role within your workflow for years to come.

Each Modix kit includes a physical copy as well as links to online assembly instructions. These instructions will walk you through the assembly process with detailed textual and visual step-by-step instructions. Online guides also feature video demonstrations for every step as well as rotatable 3D Models of the various sub-assemblies making the assembly process straight-forward and highly intuitive.


Modularity is at the heart of Modix’s design philosophy. Whether you are deciding on what type of filament or slicing software to you want to use or deciding on what components to upgrade your 3D printer with, Modix believes in giving customers the freedom of choice.

New upgrades and additional components, such as air filters, hotends, and print head configurations are constantly being evaluated for use with the Modix line of 3D printers. Depending on the model, several upgrades may also already come included with your Modix 3D printer, while other components are quickly and easily available for add-on at the time of purchase allowing customers to better match their budgets and 3D printing needs.  Additionally, optional customization guides are regularly published and made available through Modix’s online service portal - providing customers with a wide level of support for any upgrades they may want to implement.
