M3-ID Rev. 1

Yay touch probe!

3D printer developer MakerGear is also introducing a new 3D printer at RAPID. The new M3 Independent (M3-ID) Dual Rev. 1 3D Printer with enclosure is an upgraded version of the popular M3, introduced last year and shown off at RAPID 2017.

The M3-ID Dual Rev. 1 has a touch probe that manages, accelerates, and improves bed leveling with simple user instructions, in addition to checking the print surface in order to, as the company says, “generate a mesh using 9 data points to compensate for any unavoidable variations in the flatness of the print bed.”

A new, optional MakerGear Enclosure helps reduce operating noise, maintain proper temperature, and vent odors. As with the company’s other 3D printers, the M3-ID Dual Rev. 1 also has wireless control, an integrated user interface, WiFi, and high-temperature V4 hot ends.

Rick Pollack, MakerGear’s CEO, told 3DPrint.com, “We are very pleased to announce the release of the M3-ID Rev. 1 featuring a new touch probe and the optional enclosure. The reliable touch probe provides two benefits, first, it provides simple feedback to help the user mechanically level the bed, when needed. Secondly, it generates a model of the print surface based on nine data points that allows the printer to compensate for any unavoidable variations from true flatness. The M3-ID was already an excellent machine, adding the enclosure and the probe takes it to the next level.”

You can see the new M3-ID Rev. 1 with enclosure, and purchase one at a special show rate, at the company’s booth #310 at RAPID.

MakerGear is also demonstrating its new MakerGear Cloud software, which uses cluster-based print queuing and printer cluster mapping to maximize a 3D printer fleet’s productivity. The fully integrated machine and data management solution also adapts to users’ locations, devices, and security needs and provides efficient operation for both low- and high-volume print jobs.

3DPrint.com is also at RAPID this week, bringing you all of the latest news from the showroom floor as we look forward to seeing these and many other new product introductions in person.

I would like to know what the show pricing is. I may actually want to pick one of these up. Unfortunately makergear never is at a show near me so I never am able to meet some of the crew.

Will the probe be available as an upgrade for the original M3?

Hi


Did any one ever get confirmation if there exists an upgrade plan for first generation M3ID?

Thanks

We are currently working on an upgrade path for adding a probe to the M3-ID
(Rev 0 to Rev 1). I suggest contacting karen@makergear.com sometime in August.

Karen can also answer any questions you have about the enslosure.
