FELIXprinters & Spark Design
“In the early stages of the development we worked very closely with Spark Design. Together with them we have drawn the primary design and determined the Pro Series features. The many hours we have both invested in the development truly paid off: we have a unique and eye-catching design. I am of course very proud that we’ve earned a gold award for the machine that we have both worked on“ - says Guillaume Feliksdal, CEO and head of Engineering at FELIXprinters.
“The complete appearance of the FELIX Pro is a leap forward from the previous models, while keeping the core values alive. Strengthening brand image, emphasizing brand promises and improving product quality. The integrated electronics, the carefully hidden wiring and the robust, continuous arc shape are the new Felix Pro symbols for elegance.” - is stated on productdesignaward.eu.
The ultimate and portable Desktop 3D printer
The FELIX Pro has many distinctive benefits which make it a desktop printer for professional use. For the ultimate easy-to-use experience, the print bed features revolutionary mechanical auto-leveling and a magnet-fix for easy interchanging of print beds. Because Felix sells globally, shipping size matters. We introduced a tilting print bed mount, that reduced the box size by 50%.
Hot innovationsMany innovations were introduced in the extruder as well. All related to modularity, upgradeability and ease-of-use. We developed a hot-end mounting system that enables hot-end replacement in just seconds. A probing sensor has been integrated in the hot-end, enabling auto-leveling of the bed. And the dual head system includes a clever nozzle retractor, resulting in problem-free printing of multiple materials in one model.
Felixusa is releasing the FELIX Pro1 for our USA customers at a base value of $2550.
Introducing the FELIX Pro 1, the best 3D printer we have ever build. The FELIX Pro 1 is the first 3D printer in the FELIX Professional Series. and will be available next to the premium series (FELIX 3.1 3D printer). The FELIX Pro 1 includes many great features that make this 3D printer truly the best 3D printer in its segment. The FELIX Pro 1 is available with two nozzles, which allows the operator to print with different materials and colours in one single print. Other features include: automatic bed leveling, filament detection, intelligent nozzle positioning and many more advanced systems that will help you to create stunning 3D printed objects!
At FELIXprinters we noticed there is a growing demand for easy to operate, precise and intelligent FDM 3D printers. After many hours, weeks and perhaps months of talking with customers, resellers and 3d printing experts we were able to finalize a list of features that definitely had to be in a modern, state of the art 3D printer. Our engineers have been working day and night to take care of every single detail and now it is here and it is ready to be send out into the world: the FELIX Pro 1.
Felix Pro 1 brings various automation to 3D printing and some of the newest concepts and upgrades. From Dual-Head fully swappable all-metal Hot-Ends to Auto-calibrated magnetic beds, filament detection, auto nozzle positioning and large LCD display making the printer easy to operate in a stand alone configuration.
The FELIX 3.1 will be placed in the premium line and we will continue releasing upgrades! The 3.1, which has been our bestseller for many years, will be available next to the Pro series.
Felixusa started operating on 3Dhubs. We are now offering 3D print services using our own latest award-winning Felix 3.0 printer. 3Dhubs is a fast growing start-up connecting various 3D printer owners with DIY makers around the globe. Its easy to use, very transparent and ideal for getting your ideas printed by professionals around the world.
Felixusa and Felix Printers 3D / Felix Robotics were present at the latest 3D Printing expo for Lockheed Martin personnel, which took place on the October 22. This presented us a great opportunity to showcase our latest iteration, our Felix 3.0 3D printer, to some real engineers and professional hobbyists.
We noticed that there is a growing Felix printer community even at Lockheed Martin. The event allowed us to share the latest innovations, ideas and of-course the results. We compared our results with the latest 3D printers around and were happy to notice that in quite some area's the Felix 3.0 was outperforming our main competition in its price range.
Nowadays there are so many choices, this was also apparent at the expo, with some confused engineers walking around. You can buy a 3D printer for couple of hundred to couple of millions. At the end what it comes to is what do you want to do with a 3D printer as a user ? Our main focus has been to be at the top of the 'up-to 3K dollar printers, focusing on the more serious DIY/Hobbyists to the small businesses who needs low-cost high quality printers. True, our Felix 3D printers do not come with the fancy gimmicks like Bluetooth, WiFi and fancy led lights at the moment, but what it does have is a unmatched printing quality coupled with a large build area and a good support base in its price range. With the Felix line, we are focusing on high quality printing first. At the end that is what the engineers, serious hobbyists and home DIY folks love about our printer. And now our latest v3.0 also offers dual-head printing capability with a heated bed.
