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.

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