Motorcycle seat, PLA-HT, unpainted

His customer testimonial:

“.. In general, I currently print all my parts using your PLA-HT material. The main advantage lies in the easily detachable support material and good mechanical properties.

I primarily print out equipment parts, my various round plugs, freely formed plugs, problematic shapes, etc.

There is also the sector for assembly-room dummies. In my case, I print out complete exhaust manifolds for installation and to be used as manufacturing test runs.

Currently, I am running a trial to produce tools for sheet-metal forming using a special system and your material. Te first trials have been promising. The material has a special level of elasticity and spring-back effect that makes that possible....."

Multex Move – four-color extruder with anti-ooze function

Multec develops world innovations in the field of extruder technology!

Two- and four-color extruder with anti-oozing and cleaning function - anti-oozing perfection

With the development of the Move-generation extruder, which is unique on a worldwide level, Multec is taking FDM 3D printing technology to a new dimension. Thereby, with it, up to four different plastic types or colors can be combined in a single print run!

World innovation in the field of FDM extrusion: Four-color extruder with ooze prevention
This makes multicolored printing possible without dripping or oozing since only the active nozzle moves into the print position and all nozzles are parked into position and cleaned prior to printing. The new compactly designed Move Extruders are currently undergoing a test phase and have been submitted to the patent office for a patent application.
Multirap owners will especially benefit from this new development, which is capable of being upgraded. The new extruder generation will be offered to them at a special price upon being launched onto market. For third-party printer customers, Multec is also offering an extruder upgrade.

3D printing, lightweight with optimum stability - printing example, dog wheelchair

The weight-optimized breastplate of the dog wheelchair is an ideal example for highly resistant and stability-optimized printing.

The force exerted when passing over rough and smooth surfaces is intrinsic in nature and the first breastplates we designed were quickly taken to their limits.

For this, there is a tutorial provided by multec on how to optimize the weight of parts, thereby still provide a high level of stability.

Stability-optimized lightweight construction in the field of 3D printing

In principle, the highest level of layer thickness combined with wide layer widths offer the best level of stability in any case in the field of 3D printing. Here, the layer adhesion level is at the best level and the densely position threads are also naturally optimized with regard to tensile and bending strength.

more ...

Even more stable and super-quick printed parts
- thin-walled printing optimized for stability and strength
- waterproof printing:

This can be done extremely well using the new 0.8mm nozzle by Multec:…

The higher the layers are located during FDM printing, the more solid the printed parts are and the higher the level of stability and strength are. Here, stable layer adhesion takes place over a wide level of width.

New multech nozzle size: 0.8mm for fast printed parts that are optimized for strength and stability

Even thin-walled parts are extremely resistant in this way because the adhesion of the layers is excellent.

PLA-HT – heat-resistant Multec PLA in new colors

Our top seller PLA-HT with its enormously high level of impact resistance (50% higher than ABS) and its high level of temperature resistance is unique within the filament market.

The printed image of colored PLA-HT is impressive due to its matte evenness. Due to this, the FDM groove structure is practically invisible in the case of fine layer heights. The surfaces that can be produced are absolutely even.

Multec is now expanding its color range to include blue, red and black; other colors are currently being tested. Of course, food-safe and in excellent and proven Multec quality.

The new colors are being produced; sample packages are available: Order a sample package

At Multec, you purchase precise printers with all the innovative expansion options in the coming years.

Large display and 3D-printer control panel

In order for you to now know what options your Multirap will be offering next year, we have compiled the current innovations for you here that will be available in the coming year at Multec for your Multirap:

  • Multex4Move: Four-way extruder with anti-ooze and cleaning function
    for all Multirap units, upgradable and patented. Can be equipped for various colors, various materials, various nozzle sizes for the highest level of flexibility possible
  • MultiSense: Firmware update with enhanced functionality for printing table unevenness
    With it, the printing table can be depicted by many small levels instead of a single large level. Thereby, even irregularities or bends in the printing table at a local level can be depicted, thereby ensuring an optimum level of nozzle distance across the entire printing area. The printing table no longer has to be measured in the future prior to every individual printout. The measuring points determined are then saved and maintained, even if the printer is switched off.
  • Filament monitoring
    no printing interruption due to filament breakage or an empty coil
  • Automatic nozzle height measurement
    the printer measures its nozzle height itself, no more strenuous adjustment, even four-color nozzles are automatically measured.
  • other process monitoring and safety functions.
  • Enlargement of the printing area for all previous models
  • Control integration in the printer with an even stronger power unit.
  • New printer model with enlarged print area

Automatic contact-free table alignment for your Multirap

Have a look at the print-table leveling function in the video. The Multirap prints flawlessly even in extremely inclined positions.

In the future, a high-quality industrial sensor will reduce the work involved in aligning the printing bed in the case of Multirap 3D printers.
Before starting to print, the precision sensor integrated in the extruder leaves the printing bed and transmit the information to the software.
Thereby, a Multirap prints at an exact distance from the printing bed, even at extremely inclined positions.
Faults due to badly set nozzle heights and elaborate alignment are therefore a thing of the past.
Naturally, as is always the case at Multec, this innovation also exists as an upgrade for Multriap printers!
