The majority of consumer FDM 3D printers print at snail’s speed that even a basic model can take hours to complete. But things will be different in 2022 when a high-speed 3D printing device hits the market. By high speed, we mean Geeetech’s new high-speed 3D printer called THUNDER, which is set to debut on Kickstarter available in early September. Thunder will have fast printing speed, full metal body, powerful cooling system and large printing capacity. Take a look at what we know about THUNDER so far.

What is a 3D printer used for?

3D printing comes with a wide range of applications. You can create consumer goods, architectural models, industrial objects, etc. Because 3D printing service is useful in virtually every industry, it includes a wide range of technologies and materials to make the printing process more efficient. This is where Geeetech’s line of 3D printers comes in.

What’s a good 3D printer to start with?

After two years of development since 2020, Geeetech has perfected 3D printing technology, allowing their new and future THUNDER 3D printer to print at high speed without sacrificing quality.

According to reliable sources from Geeetech, the print speed of THUNDER can reach up to 300mm/s with an acceleration of 5000mm/s2 for X-axis and 4000mm/s2 for Y-axis. Depending on the complexity of your selected 3D model, you have 30-70% print time, but with optimal print quality.

For example, printing a 3D castle with a dimension of 120x62x96mm on THUNDER will only take 223 minutes compared to other printers which can produce it in 710 minutes at most. From this, you can save 69% of your time.

Geeetech THUNDER 3D Printer

With THUNDER, Geeetech used a dual-gear extruder, a high-power heating module, and a large-volume nozzle for extrusion. That’s alongside five cooling fans for the model’s hotend and cooling. The new Geeetech device outperforms standard FDM 3D printers in every aspect, from fusing the 3D printer filament to extrusion and cooling.

Just to clarify, its high-speed printing is impossible without an efficient extrusion system and a robust cooling system. Meanwhile, THUNDER’s all-metal body with dual Z-axis design ensures the stability of the machine when printing and moving at high speed. Besides its high-speed nature, here are some of the factors involved in the development of THUNDER.

Other Key Features

  • High efficiency heat dissipation: Heat management is one thing that makes high-speed printing inefficient. But Geeetech has created a solution for this. On the hotend, Geeetech developed two high-volume cooling fans. There are also two larger auxiliary component cooling fans to support high-speed single-layer printing. Thanks to the “powerful one-button cooling mode”, these four fans can be activated simultaneously.

  • X/Y axis intelligent monitoring system and real-time response: The 3D printer has a closed-loop drive on the X and Y axes. When using the same stepper motor as in an open-loop drive, the closed-loop drive produces more torque and more reaction. fast, and the printed object is not easily dislocated.

  • High efficiency extrusion system: Geeetech built a dual-drive geared extruder to handle high-speed printing, which makes it sturdy and wilt-resistant. A high-power heating module with up to 70 W of electricity is used to eliminate clogging. Then a larger capacity nozzle is used without filament shortage.

  • Double Z axis with separate limit switch: THUNDER has two separate Z axes, each with its photoelectric limit sensor, which automatically eliminates height errors on the left and right sides of the X axis, greatly improving the print quality of the model.

This 3D printing equipment has a printing volume of 250*250*260mm and five separate printing modes to meet a variety of printing demands. So you will not only be able to print larger 3D models, but you will also be able to choose how they are produced. Additional features include resume capabilities, password protection, and more.

Advantages

  • Full metal body for a more stable structure

  • Closed-loop control for real-time response

  • Large 3D printing volume of 250*250*260

  • Strong model grip thanks to the new generation of hotbed

  • High speed 3D printing up to 300mm/s

  • Efficient cooling system with 5 cooling fans

  • Humanization designs through X/Y axis belt quick adjustment

  • Print at your preferred speed with multiple print modes

  • Efficient extrusion system made possible by a dual gear extruder

What is the best 3D printer to buy?

With an improvement in its 3D printer product line, THUNDER promises to provide a long-lasting and efficient 3D printing service. Apart from its high-speed capability, some of its capabilities have been improved to some extent, allowing you to optimize your 3D outputs. A perhaps fascinating aspect of this high-speed printer is that it operates with an accuracy of 0.1mm, so there is no sacrifice in print quality, even when printing. high speed. The printed model has a nice surface, distinct angles and sturdy construction.

To get your hands on this super-fast 3D printer, Geeetech will launch a Kickstarter campaign for THUNDER in early September, with prices starting at $399 for early birds. So don’t forget to go for it and buy it at an affordable price! Not only that, Geeetech will also host subscription and giveaway activity for THUNDER on its official website.
