Airwolf 3D,, Costa Mesa, Calif., has introduced a new professional-grade 3D printer line-up, the AXIOM line, to its line of HD products.

AXIOM is a clean-sheet design using a single, high temperature, proprietary hot-end to print high-resolution prototypes, molds, and products in more than 30 different thermoplastic materials, in a fraction of the time of competing products.

AXIOM uses a state-of-the-art CoreXY motion-control system for high-speed movement and precise control of the print head. Using a fully enclosed housing made of extruded aluminum and injection molded polycarbonate components, AXIOM can print pieces as large as 12.5”x8”x10”.

The fully enclosed printer comes with a standard heated bed that creates a consistent heat environment for printing large, high-resolution parts at layer heights as low as 40 microns. The printer supports a wide range of thermoplastics from low-temperature materials like TPU and PLA, to high-temperature materials like nylon and polycarbonate.

Ease of use has been paramount in the design with the integration of a print bed auto-leveling system. Prior to every 3D print, the four-point print bed leveling system automatically calibrates the print bed, ensuring the proper initial layer height and orientation, and then actively maintains that leveling throughout the entire print process.

When combined with AstroPrint, a cloud-based slicing and printer management system, users can select the AXIOM, the desired print material, and the print resolution all in a matter of seconds. Print files can be sent to the AXIOM through one of the four standard connections including wireless, Ethernet, USB, or micro SD card.
