New inductor sensor for maximum precision.

To achieve flawless results, the extruder must always work at a specific distance from the bed The Witbox 2 includes a new inductive sensor that measures this distance with utmost precision. The sensor is made of an electric coil that generates a magnetic field. When the bed moves closer to the field, the sensor detects it at a certain distance away and advises the user once it has reached the correct position via a small red LED. This mechanism enables precise and rigorous levelling, giving first class results. 

Print what you imagine.

The extruder is a key component because it pushes the filament through the hot-end causing it to melt. We have designed and developed a new extruder for the Witbox 2 incorporating a Double Drive Gear traction system that provides optimal grip of the filament: applying pressure, the two gearwheels flawlessly slide the filament to the end of the Hot-End. With the risk of obstruction minimised, a greater variety of filaments can be used, such as PLA, bronze, wood, copper and even flexible materials like FilaFlex.

We are evolving 3D printing.

Witbox was our first 3D printer. It was ranked in the top five best printers in the world and reached more than 50 countries in just under a year. But we wanted more. Building on an excellent product, we have managed to create a more reliable, convenient and practical 3D printer. A ready-to-use printer that is perfect for working in domestic, professional and educational environments, delivering extraordinary results.

100% BQ electronics.

The BQ Zum CNC is a new circuit board which has been specifically designed for the Witbox 2 by the BQ hardware team. This component allows a more fluid movement of the motors and offers improved heat dissipation. 
All the Witbox 2 connections are protected and the digital potentiometers eliminate manual adjustments. The Witbox 2 boasts a new, more intuitive, graphic LCD display with higher resolution, improving user experience. The interface, along with the electronics that control the display, have also been developed in-house.

Auto-levelling: making 3D printing easier than ever.

Witbox 2 has a new auto-levelling system, freeing you from having to manually adjust the bed. When activated, the printer can detect any incline using the inductive sensor. It then adjusts the movement of the motors for perfect printing, even on a sloping surface. 

Share, improve, evolve.

We believe in co-creation and Open Source Initiative. We contribute with our knowledge and work to the Technological Heritage of Humanity so that people can use it, make it grow and share it back. We believe that knowledge has no limits, and that´s why the firmware and hardware of the Witbox 2 is 100% open source. 

Our commitment: giving you the best customer service.
