Large print volume

The bq Witbox is a domestic printer with DIN-A4 print volume (21 x 29.7 cm) and a height of up to 20 cm, meaning it has a greater capacity to print large-scale objects and multiple parts simultaneously than any other printer.

3D printing of spectacular quality

Several factors affect the quality of 3D printing. One of them is the height of each layer: the lower the height, the better the level of detail and resolution of the printed object. It´s also very important for the printing base to be as level as possible. A toughened, laminated* glass base is incorporated in Witbox.

* For optimum printing, lacquer must be sprayed on the base before you start printing.

Where beauty and safety combine

The bq Witbox has been painstakingly designed to optimise its functionality. It’s a fully enclosed printer with a locking front door system, preventing accidental access during printing and making it a particularly safe to use around children. The fully enclosed design helps to minimise noise, while preventing heat from escaping and controlling airflow - thus maintaining a constant temperature inside the printer.

A totally innovative printing system

The bq Witbox incorporates an innovative printing system inspired by the Fibonacci spiral, using a PTFE tube to feed the filament through. Thanks to this design, the feeder system is housed within the printer unit itself, reducing the amount of contact between the filament and the tube. This optimised design, combined with the reinforced Witbox chassis, enables you to create a printer network by stacking up to three bq Witboxes one on top of the other.

Made by us in Spain

We manufacture the bq Witbox at our Spanish factory in Navarra, which is dedicated exclusively to the design and production of our printers. As we manufacture our own products, we’re able to enforce the very tightest quality controls, and we also apply our exacting standards to our consumables on our dedicated production line in the Spanish town of Huesca.

Option of stacking and linking up to three printers one on top of the other, avoiding the need for additional shelving.
The system is inspired by the Fibonacci spiral, with a PTFE tube for threading the filament.
This innovative system means the filament feeder tubes are fully housed with the interior of the machine, giving the device greater aesthetic appeal and ensuring that friction is kept to a minimum. We recommend that you only stack a maximum of three Witbox printers.

* For optimum printing, lacquer must be sprayed on the base before you start printing.
