Auto-swapping buildplateS & Continuous Printing
Designed from the ground up for low-volume manufacturing, the X5 is capable of automatically feeding up to 12 plates onto its printing bed and reloading after printing, providing a continuous 3D Printing workshop.
This smart self-reloading technology enables users to to churn out prints continuously with minimal human interaction - critical for maximized workflow in a office and education environment.
Tiertimes continuous technology in the X5 is best suited with low-warp 3D printing materials. To get the best and most reliable results; the X5 works best with PLA filament & the PLA print head that comes with the 3D printer. For parts with higher temperature resistance we also highly recommend printing with PETG which is compatible with the stock print head.
The Tiertime X5 featues a full enclosure to protect your 3D printers from cold breezes, dust or hands that could interrupt the printing process.
The front door can be opened for easy print removal when not using continuous print mode and the side door can be opened to load and remove filaments. The transparent lid is removable for printing cooler temperature materials and provides users easy access to the extruder for filament loading.
Material Specific Extruder Design
The X5 ships with 1 x Tiertime X5 PLA print head which features a PTFE lined hot end for printing low warp materials such as PLA and PETG.
- With the included PTFE Lined PLA Extruder, print low temperature materials like PLA, PETG and PolyCast.
Tiertime have also manufactured two additional print heads which can be purchased for the Tiertime X5. Tiertimes swappable material extruders improve material versatility and compatibility with materials across a wide range of printing temperatures.
- With the Full Metal ABS Extruder (sold separately), print high temperature materials like ABS, PC and ASA.
- With the TPU Extruder (sold separately) print TPU and other flexible filaments.
The TPU extruder is spring loaded and the extrusion gear is grooved. As TPU or other soft filaments are flexible they will change diameter under pressure, the design of the TPU extruder can effectively prevent slippage and apply maximum extrusion force.
The X5 is equipped with a heated bed that supports heating up to 100℃ and a enclosed design to increase the ambient temperature. A heated bed improved bed adhesion and is required when printing many high temperature engineering materials.
Tiertimes X5 has been designed with material versatility in mind.
Compatible with Tiertimes material specific extruder design, the X5 is suitable for printing a wide range of different material types from both Tiertime and 3rd party brands. Please note the X5 only ships with the PLA print head for low temperature materials like PLA and PETG.
With the enclosure, material specific extruder design and heated bed, the X5 is capable of printing a wide range of materials including and not limited to; PLA / PETG / ABS* / ASA* / PC* / TPU** / PVB (PolySmooth) / PolyCast.
* Require the Tiertime X5 ABS Extruder (sold separately).
** Requires the Tiertime X5 TPU Extruder (sold separately).
The Tiertime X5 features a compact build volume of 230 x 180 x 200mm (LxDxH) to fit your array of prototypes and projects for batch production.
Dual HEPA FilterS
Like the UP BOX+, with its first-in-class air filtration system, the x5 advocates safer 3D printing. With an improved Dual Filtration System, using both HEPA and Activated Carbon filters, it greatly reduces UFP and VOC density inside the printer.
The Tiertime X5 features a filament outage switch to detect when filament runs out, pausing your print for you to load a new spool.
Touch Screen / Connectivity
With the 7" LCD touch screen, users can monitor print que progress and control the printer with ease. Connect to the X5 via WiFi, Lan or USB. The X5 is manufactured with three USB ports. One USB port is for loading print jobs stored on a USB memory stick. Another USB port is for computer connectivity and the third USB port is for optional add-ons, such as a USB camera for remote print monitoring.
UP Studio Software / APP
Since the company’s inception, Tiertime has always believed software should make 3D printing easier, not more difficult. This philosophy is reflected in Tiertimes design and integration of UP Studio. Designed for professionals, educators and house hold users, UP Studio is largely responsible for Tiertime’s industry-wide recognition as a “Best Of” in the plug ‘n print category.
Constantly reviewed and revised based on user feedback, UP Studio includes features suggested by Tiertime’s vibrant community. Nothing drives software development more than customer input.
UP Studio is designed to work seamlessly with Tiertimes range of 3D Printers. The refined design and UI has gained a loyal following over the years. Many customers purchase Tiertime printers specifically because they love the software.
Take advantage of UP Studio with WiFi enabled Tiertime / UP 3D Printers. Use the UP Studio App to control it from your iPhone or iPad. Change printer settings. Load models from the cloud. Monitor print job status from anywhere within Wi-Fi range or through a properly-configured corporate firewall. Access to your additive manufacturing investment is at your fingertips.
