Airwolf 3D introduced today AW3D HDx, a desktop 3D printer that prints engineer-grade materials for $3,495 (MSRP).

The AW3D HDx 3D printer upgrades the current AW3D HD, and comes standard with Airwolf 3D's patent-pending JRx (jam resistant) hot end which can sustain temperatures of 315 degrees Celsius (599 degrees Fahrenheit). It can easily handle polycarbonate, Bridge nylon, Nylon 645 and other materials.

"Imagine a 3D printer that can print engineering-grade materials placed on every desktop," said Erick Wolf, founder and CEO of Airwolf 3D.

Compared to AW3D HD, the AW3D HDx 3D printer has higher acceleration, faster movement and more accurate positioning. It also uses nylon gears for less wear and longer life and a finer pitch lead screw for increased z positioning accuracy.

The AW3D HDx features a build envelope of 1,150 cubic inches (12" x 8" x 12"), making it ideal for large prototyping. The printer offers layer-to-layer resolution as fine as 0.06mm and a maximum print speed of 150mm/s with a positioning precision of 0.02mm. No link-up to a computer is required and it comes fully assembled and calibrated.

For current customers, Airwolf 3D's JRx hot end can be retrofitted on existing AW3D HD and AW3D XL 3D printers.

I have a jrx hot end and it has been absolutely nothing but trouble. I have printed literally thousands of commercial components on my XL and it has been a rock until I upgraded to the jrx. It has jammed more on each single print than the XL jammed on 200 prints with the original hot end. I have pulled it apart and replaced the Teflon insert which helped a bit but I am probably going to have to retrofit a jhead to my XL as the jrx is totally useless. I will be phoning Airwolf regarding this and see what is wrong but I have low expectations as they sent me the wrong head for my XL in the first place and their fancy sharkbite will not hold near as well as PET and acetone emulsion and is worse than 3dlac spray. So far the jrx has ruined business for me and been very disappointing. More as it comes. Strange that there are no true customer reviews that I could find on the jrx anywhere.......

Printing Polycarbonate..... pretty dumb Airwolf. Polycarbonate contains BPA : Bisphenol A = Carcinogenic Happy Printing!!!

If you have seen the standard HD, you will know this is no buddashnozzle. Wish I could afford it.

I hope that isn't an acrylic frame. That's a lot of money to spend on a brittle stricture.

Hi there, Can you explain this stat: "Nozzle diameter (mm): .5 + .35" specifically the "+ .35" is that plus /minus? or is the diameter .5 + .35 = .85? Also, the accuracy seems miss represented -- a layer thickness of .06 and a nozzle of .5 -- If the material is being squeezed flat from a .5mm hole down to .06mm, won't there be serious loss in quality of small details? I still find the stats of 3d printers can only be used as a base and rarely represent the final part quality with any sort of accuracy . Sorry, I got off track there...
