The Modix BIG-60 V4 3D Printer Kit
A Do-It-Yourself, Giant Format, High-Quality 3D Printer
The name “BIG-60” is almost an understatement of just how large this 3D printer can create your models. Keep your designs in one piece and print full-size with confidence in the heavy-duty construction and motion system.
Here are the key features of the Modix BIG-60 V4 3D printer:
- Giant format build volume
- AC powered, 1,350 Watt, dual zone MIC-6 build plate with a smooth PEI surface
- Equipped with the New and Improved Griffin Print Head.
- Genuine HIWIN MGNW9 Linear Rails for belt-driven X and Y Axes and smooth rods for ball-screw driven Z axis.
- Upgrade as needed - plenty of options available to improve your 3D printing experience
- Automatic bed calibration
- Print with any material
- One year warranty and lifetime support by Modix
Virtually Limitless Build Volume
With a build volume that can be measured in feet, the Modix BIG-60 V4 boasts one of the largest build volumes in our catalog; save yourself the trouble of splitting your large 3D models into several smaller ones and print your designs in one piece.
- Build Volume: 600mm x 600mm x 660mm (23.6in x 23.6in x 26in)
- 3D prints hundreds of small parts at once
- Create large 3D prints for prototyping, demonstration, or manufacturing large end-use parts
Easy 3D Print Adhesion and Print Removal
Such a large build plate necessitates excellent adhesion to ensure that even the longest 3D prints stay stuck to the build plate throughout the job while releasing with ease when finished. A precision milled MIC-6 aluminum build plate covered with a premium smooth PEI sheet does just that, all while utilizing a dual-zone AC bed heater to bring just the center to temperature or the entire build plate if necessary.
- 1,350 Watt, AC powered bed heater for sustained 120°C bed temperature.
- Aluminum MIC-6, milled cast build plate for the flattest build plate.
- Smooth PEI bed sticker to ensure bed adhesion with most materials.
High Flow Griffin Print Head
Every Modix 3D printer kit comes with the new Modix Griffin Print-head. This offering consiststs of a custom extruder made by Bontech (based on the BMG model) and of a new hotend designed by Modix. The Bondtech extruder provides a double drive-gear system that grabs the filament from both sides. The heat block is made of nickel-coated copper, for a faster heat transfer and compatibility with higher printing temperatures, and includes other high-quality Slice Engineering components.
- Upgrade PT-1000 Temperature Sensor enables printing at temptures up to 500°C
- The new print-head design makes nozzle replacements much easier, and even allows a quick swapping of the entire filament melting subsystem.
- Rigid mounting of the heat-block allows one-handed nozzle replacement, making it even easier to test different nozzle diameters.
Precision Motion in Every Axis
A machine this size needs heavy-duty components to keep everything running smoothly. Genuine HIWIN linear rails guide the X and Y Axes while the Z axis is guided by smooth linear rods, with an optional HIWIN rail upgrade.
- Each HIWIN MGNW9 rail is preloaded for smooth motion.
- 9mm genuine GATES GT2 belts and 4 SFU1204 ball screws with belted gear reduction drive the 3D printer.
- Upgrade Z axis’ smooth rods with HIWIN MGNW9 linear rails.
Build the Ideal 3D Printer For You
Pick and choose components to match your individual use case and better meet your budgetary needs. Optional customization is available at the time of purchase but regularly published support guides are available through Modix’s online service portal.
- Optional enclosure kit add-on for higher-temperature materials.
- Casters to easily move your Modix BIG-60 V4 around.
- Service guides walk you through the upgrade process.
Automated and Guided Bed Calibration
When you have a 3D printer bed this large you want to make sure getting a perfect first layer is easy to achieve every time. The fully automatic BL-Touch bed leveling probe works exceptionally well at measuring any dips and bumps in the build plate (even miniscule ones) and allows the firmware to compensate for these variations.
- Genuine BL-Touch Bed Leveling Probe to measure 100 points on the bed.
- Built-in macros guide you through the leveling routine.
- Start from a level playing field using the bed adjustment macro
Unlimit Your 3D Printing Capabilities With The Open Filament System
The Modix BIG-60 V4 proudly supports open filament utilization, allowing you to purchase and use any filament that is compatible with the printer’s capabilities.
1.75mm only with the included Griffin Print Head.
Griffin Hotend components are rated for 500°C and so far were verified in the printing of up to 340°C.
Must require a bed temperature at or below 120°C
