Greensboro, NC (PRWEB) April 11, 2016 -- Fusion3 announced the debut of its F400 3D printer, the worthy successor to the critically acclaimed F306, at the Inside3DPrinting Conference & Expo. The F400 delivers reliability and superior output quality and print speed, in a fully enclosed structure and at an affordable price of $4,499. This combination of features and price, along with the longest warranty in the industry, further expands the range of its application for business & education customers.
“We started Fusion3 three years ago because we felt that we can deliver at least 95% of the speed, quality, and reliability of today’s industrial-grade 3D printers that cost $20,000 to $100,000,” says Chris Padgett, Fusion3 CEO. “Fusion3 continues to provide our customers with industry leading performance at a price below $5,000, while improving every feature of our systems. The F400 delivers best-in-class performance while remaining affordable, making it ideal for both professional and educational users.”
The new, fully enclosed F400 sets a new standard in affordable, high performance 3D printing. Based on the company’s proven “F-Series” Core XY architecture, the F400 features:
• Print Speed up to 250MM/sec and layer resolution as low as .05MM
• All metal E3D print head with hardened steel nozzle for superior performance
• New 32-Bit controller provides even faster (20%) print speeds (vs. F306)
• Durable metal enclosure & rigid frame provides unparalleled mechanical stability
• Pre-assembled and calibrated at Fusion3's factory for optimal performance
Large, Enclosed Print Area
• 1.46 cu ft print area (14.2”×14.4”×12.6”)
• Aluminum enclosure provides stable temperature environment for printing high temperature materials including ABS and Polycarbonate
• Large, clear windows allow you to view the printer as it operates
• Modular components and convenient access to the interior for easy maintenance and servicing
Designed for Ease of Use & Manageability
• Easy to read 4.7” touch screen puts advanced controls at your fingertips
• Full-featured remote management; upload files, monitor print progress and manage your F400 remotely from anywhere on your network (via ethernet) (wifi capable, requires 3rd party adapter)
• Automated Bed Leveling via built in IR sensor which samples the bed height and adjusts the Z axis in real time to maintain the correct height
• Every F400 comes with a 2 seat license of Simplify3D Creator ($149 value). This easy to use, slicing software is lightning fast and generates superior output of your models, optimized for the selected material.
Open Materials Philosophy
• Tested to work with a wide range of materials beyond PLA & ABS, including Nylon(s), PCTPE, t-glase, PETG, N-Vent, HIPS, Infused PLAs,

• Fusion3 tests & certifies new materials, publishing optimized profiles on a regular basis
Enhanced Safety & Comfort
• Door with large windows provides engaging visual experience in educational environments while protecting against contact with high temperature surfaces & sensitive electronics
• Quiet operation for office and libraries (36db with door closed)
• Optional HEPA / Carbon Filter System provides filtration for sites lacking adequate ventilation
• Addition of new sensors that provide additional protection and automatic shutdown in the event of heat-related issues during long prints.
Durability & Reliability for Maximum Uptime
• F-Series platform, first used on the F306, is proven to be durable and reliable
• 2 Year warranty on materials and workmanship; the longest warranty offered by any manufacturer (as of 4/1/2016)
