AXIOM 3D Printer with New Extruder System to Print Difficult Materials

The AXIOM 3D printers with the new Direct Drive extruder assembly option make it easy to create complex 3D prints out of traditionally hard-to-use materials. From flexible materials like TPE and TPU to strong, hard materials like polycarbonate and polypropylene, Direct Drive delivers clean, beautiful prints. Even if your settings aren’t perfect, it’s difficult to mess up a print. AXIOM 3D printers are about 1/3 the price of the next machine that prints these materials effectively. They are especially great for printing functional prototypes and consumer products.
