DM3 - The 3D printing machine

The pinnacle of precision, versatility and reliability in the world of 3D printing

We have designed and built the DM3 3D printer so that it offers impressive print performance. This is reflected in the high quality print results, breathtaking speed and impressive accuracy. These are achieved thanks to the latest technologies including Dual Print, Direct Drive and fully automatic print bed leveling as well as dimensions that are perfectly suited to the majority of applications.

Dual Print

Different materials - different colors


Dual Print is twice as good. Thanks to this parallel printing mode, the DM3 supports simultaneous printing of two models in different colors using different materials.

In general, this is even possible if a single model is sliced. This is beacuse the DM3 is then in a position to calculate the G-code for two prints independently. All that is required is a compatible slicer and a suitable size and shape.

Direct Drive

For easy processing of different materials


Direct Drive enhances the print quality of the DM3 even further. The use of two direct driven extruders improves materials retraction. Consequently, all DM3 printer models print much more cleanly, so that the extremely common “hairs” that appear on the edges of models printed using standard 3D printers are eliminated.

Moreover, the DM3 can print using a larger range of materials, such as TPU. None of this is standard with other 3D printers in this price range.

Auto Kalibration

Fully automatic print bed leveling


Thanks to the physical, fully automated print bed leveling, the DM3 can recognize even the smallest variances between the print head and the print bed. This allows the stepper motors to make the necessary corrections automatically,

effectively preventing incorrectly model parts – such as the particularly unpleasant “micro-step error.”

In addition, the fully automated calibration specifically targets improvements in the adhesion between the print material and the build platform. This allows printed models to be created with the greatest possible accuracy.

Large construction volume

Because size counts


Big, but not too big: the DM3 is exactly the right. On the one hand, its dimensions are exactly what you need to create extensive, 3D printed models without any issues. On the other hand, this 3D printer is compact enough to be easily transportable, easy to use, and simple and straightforward to deploy anywhere.

User-friendly design

The DM3 is designed so that it doesn't just create a great impression thanks to its compact styling with a smooth design that is free from unsightly protrusions. It also impresses with its versatility and user-friendliness. These are enhanced by DM3's open filament system and the variable print nozzles. Moreover, we have created a long-lasting, easy-maintenance design with an emphasis on a well-thought-out printing zone.

Open Filamentsystem

Different filaments from different manufacturers


Freedom fosters creativity. That is why we have designed the DM3’s filament system so that filaments from a range of different manufacturers can be used.

This means that users are not restricted to a single brand and are better prepared for future developments than with close systems.

The choice of a 1.75-mm diameter guarantees that, when buying filaments, users will not only have a wide range of options to choose from, but also avoids any breaks in the filament feed tube.

Variable nozzle system

To use different nozzles


DM3 users also benefit from greater freedom in respect of the print nozzles. High-quality E3D V6 type hot ends ensure the greatest possible selection of compatible nozzles. This means that DM3 users can use a variety of commercially available clones as well as well-proven E3D nozzles. Even carbon printing is possible by using special nozzles made from hardened steel.

A numeber of variations are supported in respect of the desired nozzle diameter. As well as the standard 0.4 mm size, very fine or very large nozzles with 0.25 mm or 0.8mm diameters can be used with the DM3.

Easy to maintain

Easy access to all components


The DM3 has been developed so that users can expect to obtain many years of high quality printing. All components are made to high quality standards and can easily be replaced when needed thanks to the modular construction of the 3D printer. The use of established standards and informal effective standards guarantees that spare parts will be available, even after several years.

Thanks to the deliberate choice to create an easy-maintenance design, users have easy access to virtually all components, which are straightforward to replace after removing just a few screws.

Thoughtful Printing Chamber

Open or closed printing chamber


Thanks to the well-thought-out design, the DM3 can be used with both open and closed print chambers. This means that users can print using PLA in an open print chamber, then switch to ABS in a closed chamber.

We are currently working on upgrades to offer even greater performance and convenience. These include an activated charcoal filter or the ability to print using thermoplastic materials at even higher temperatures.

Intuitive controls via a 7" Touchscreen

In order to ensure that 3D printing beginners enjoy the same benefits from the DM3 and its wide range of options, we value maximum ease of use. As such, we not only include a seven-inch touchscreen as a user interface, but have also developed our control center on the basis of the popular and versatile Raspberry Pi, which may computer enthusiasts will already be familiar with.

7 inch Touchscreen

Color touch screen for easy operation


A 7″ touchscreen serves as the control center for the DM3. This screen makes it easy to control all the 3D printer’s features.
The intuitive user interface us laid out so that, on the one hand, beginners can achieve impressive print results with little effort, while on the other hand, pros can adjust a wide range of printing parameters to optimize their results.
A switchable touchscreen lock ensures that no unauthorized persons can change the user settings.

Powered by Raspberry Pi

Controlled by Python


The DM3 features a built-in Raspberry Pi 3. This high-performance, highly popular miniature computer works in combination with other high-quality components to guarantee outstanding print results. The Raspberry Pi 3 is seamlessly connected with the DM3’s Human Machine Interface,

while experienced users will also be able to program their own user interface on the miniature computer and adapt the system to suit their needs fully.
