All our developments and evolutions can be retroactively mounted on the versions. This means that you can always upgrade your printer in the future. This way, you are sure to be able to use a printer with the latest developments.
During design, particular attention is paid to ease of maintenance, the main elements are designed in modules that can be easily exchanged, everything is mounted on connectors. The extrusion head can be exchanged in less than 5 minutes.

The SpiderBot Chassis consists of 3 laser-cut discs with cutting tolerances of less than 0.03 mm (the tolerance of the cutting laser is 0.01 mm). The frame of the SpiderBot is geometrically perfect because the upper and lower discs have a laser-cut geometry.
It is not an assembly of several parts whose tolerances add up to each other.
The stainless steel rails are centred in these discs by laser-cut indexes and also have a tolerance of less than 0.03 mm. 8 brackets (three at the bottom and five at the top) ensure perpendicularity and prevent torsion of the frame.
You want to try another slicing software, a new material? No problem, everything is accessible! Your SpiderBot is based on RepRap technology, firmware sources are provided. Nothing is encrypted, nothing is encrypted, the files you send to the printer are text files in the standard GCode format, you have access to all settings.
You are free to use any standard filament reel. Our material coils are not specific, it is sufficient to respect the dimensions of the coils (diameter 210 mm maxi) and the diameter of the wire (standard diameter 1.75 mm). You can buy near you or order over the Internet from your preferred supplier.
Whether you are printing PLA, ABS or HIPS, charged materials, or even ULTEM, heating the PEI bed to 150°C ensures perfect adhesion of the parts while allowing easy separation when the PEI plate is cooled. Only some flexes may require a glass bed (optional).
Our exclusive system of positioning the head by 3 Spheres, positions the head in a perfect way, guaranteeing quality prints. No other system can be more accurate than the 3-point position of our “TSS” (Three Sphere System – registered design).
The brand new V4.0 head with double drive and remote motor allows the extrusion of all materials on the market, rigid, semi-rigid, flex, extruding at a temperature below 370°C., no more limits! With the heated room the problems are reduced to a minimum
We use E3D V6.0 type nozzles, you have the impressive range of materials for these nozzles: Brass, Stainless Steel, Hardened Steel, Tungsten Carbide, Beryllium Copper, etc… allowing you to pass any type of material.
The SpiderBot 4.0 has a chamber heated to 80°C, minimizing warping and deformation. You have complete control over the thermal environment of your part during printing.
Our brand new enclosure heater block distributes the temperature evenly throughout the enclosure.
The filament is driven by 2 rollers that are mutually engaged, the filament is guided by the 2 driving grooves. The drive rollers are hardened and nickel-plated.
The head is water cooled, regardless of the enclosure temperature or ambient temperature, the cold zone of the head is less than 40°C, greatly reducing the risk of clogging in the cold zone.
The distance between the drive and the melting zone is only 25mm, guaranteeing excellent control of the extruded filament and allowing any type of Flex.
The extruder motor is offset in the cooled area and is not affected by the chamber temperature.
The rigidity of the chassis combined with the excellent positioning of the print head, the heated chamber, the liquid-cooled head, the remote motor extruder and the dual-drive extruder result in printed parts that are often comparable to high-end professional machines. With all the freedom to use your materials and suppliers.
