Southern California-based Airwolf 3D, Inc. introduces a new printer for low cost prototyping -- AW3D XL. Listed at $2,295, AW3D XL is capable of producing objects up to 670 cubic inches.

The strengthened and enhanced frame expands the maximum printing surface to 12"x8"x7" (305 x 203 x 178 mm) and now features an embedded power source which eliminates desktop clutter. The printer's removable nozzle offers options for high speed model production using a .50mm orifice or a smaller .35mm orifice. The heated bed can now be temperature controlled for optimized printing using different materials such as ABS, Nylon and Polycarbonate.

AW3D XL retains the basic features of original AW3D V.5. The XL model operates on a RAMBo made by Ultimachine which offers more options for expandability, such as a dual extruder, multiple fans, and several other features including direct heatbed control up to 150C.

More features:

  • Layer thickness (mm): 0.25 (0.1 to 0.4 possible)
  • Max Speed (mm/s): Perimeter 150 mm/s, Travel 400 mm/s
  • Positioning precision: 0.04 mm
  • Input format: GCode
  • Software: Marlin Firmware, Pronterface Print Controller, Slic3R GCode generator
  • System compatibility: Windows/Mac
  • Size WxDxH (mm): 17.75″ (height) x 18″ (length) x 21″ (wide)
  • Power supply: Internal 12V DC, 300W, 25A
  • Weight (kg): 11 kg
  • Lead time: 2 Weeks

I'm calling shenanigans, the fixed temp heat bed makes no sense. Dump the Gen 6 electronics for something better.
