High-Speed 3D Printer Breaks Price Barriers

by Mat Dirjish

Anycubic, a 3D printing technology company, unveils Kobra 2, its latest FDM 3D printer that boasts high speed, a user-friendly experience, and a budget-friendly price. Suitable for both hobbyists and professionals, Kobra 2 has a default print speed of 150 mm/s and a maximum print speed of 250 mm/s. This allows it to complete a Benchy model with 0.28-mm layer height in 30 minutes.

Contributing to the unit’s high print speed is its direct drive extrusion system with a 4:1 gear ratio. The system tightly grips the filament and prevents it from slipping, allowing for precise extrusion and flow control even when the printer is moving quickly. A higher print speed requires a higher extrusion rate to compensate for slow extrusions during speed changes. Kobra 2’s 60W high-power hot end enables it to achieve this and melt the filament more quickly.

An advanced cooling fan helps to cool down the filament when it’s extruded from the nozzle. With a fan speed of 700 rpm, it cools prints quickly, enabling precise application of the next.

Kobra 2 features double metal spindles and an SG15 bearing structure on the X and Y axes to reduce friction between the moving parts. A double screw motion mechanism on the Z-axis improves speed of the Z-axis, thereby reducing lifting resistance and keeping the X-axis level to minimize layer lines.

Other features include the company’s LeviQ 2.0 auto-leveling system that enables automatic and accurate Z offset, a 4.3-in. color touchscreen LCD on the printer’s right side, and a power-loss recovery feature that enables the printer to recover from power outages and resume printing from the point of interruption. Additionally, a filament run-out sensor detects when the printer runs out of filament and halts the printing process.

The Kobra 2 3D printer is available now in the US. Pricing starts from $269. For greater gleaning and deeper data, peruse the Kobra 2 overview.
