The company officially manages its latest solutions for the aviation, automotive and prosthetic market, however, keep in mind that despite their impressive size, they are relatively cheap machines and… offered in the form of self-assembly kits!
The new 3D printers are Modix BIG-Meter, Modix BIG-180X and Modix BIG-40. They are based on the same technology and design solutions as the existing BIG-60 (version 3.0), BIG-120X and 120Z.
