Today, we bring you the upgraded design of the 3D Printing Module and news on the test progress of the initial trial run.
Sneak Peek at the Upgraded Design of the 3D Printing Module
Further improved the success rate and user experience of loading filament
From the feedback of our original model’s users, we found that it’s a little bit hard to push the physical button to load filament, and there remained a small possibility of failing to load filament in the right position which results in the problem of filament breaking inside the 3D Printing Module. To improve the success rate and user experience of loading filament, we developed an auto-loading-filament feature in Snapmaker 2.0. Users can easily load or unload filament using the touchscreen without pushing hard on the physical button on the 3D Printing Module.
In addition, we’ve kept working on the improvement of the manual loading method as well. Now you are one of the first to have a look at the upgraded design of our 3D Printing Module. Simply switch the button on the module to open the cover of the extruder, and then you can insert filament directly into the hole for loading filament. This process is very intuitive and you can spot a mistake immediately if there is something wrong. It also allows you to clean the extruder drive gear conveniently.
The video below shows the improved manual loading method and the newly added quick-release feature.
