When it comes to printing with temperamental filaments like PEEK, the Funmat HT checks off all the essential boxes — and for an exceptional price.
The cleverly designed and solidly built machine was created by Intamsys — an abbreviation of INTelligent Additive Manufacturing SYStems — a 3D printer manufacturer based in Shanghai. And unlike most of its more established competitors, which have pricier machines, the Funmat HT checks in at a relatively reasonable $6,000.
This machine offers a lot of handy design features as well as essential tools to ensure successful printing with engineering grade materials like PEEK, PEI, PPSU, and ULTEM. However, it does lack some of the fancier workflow features like a built-in camera to monitor prints, print queueing and WiFi connectivity. We haven’t had a chance to review this high-performance 3D printer yet, but we’ve pored over its specs to see whether it’s worth your money. […]
Just as any piece of technology becomes miniaturized over time, FDM-based 3D printers are quickly evolving to become...
