Built to Last
When we sat down to design the Daedalus we knew the frame had to be robust, we knew 2040 extrusion was the way to go. Where most printers on the market use 2020 extrusion, 2040 gives us an additional 20mm of mating surface while also having each end to extrusion secured by two bolts rather than one.
When it comes to electronics we are using the Duet3 series of control boards, the moment these boards were announced they set the standard for the next several years. The Daedalus comes standard with an EZ ABL Probe with full shielding to perform consistent and accurate probe points with repeatability of 0.001mm while having no moving parts to limit failure points. The Daedalus also comes with an SBC on board, this offloads all if the compute workload to SBC while the Duet3 handles the functions of the unit. Rather than having one board that is built for motion control also handing compute loads, we have two boards designed for each specific task. The SBC also allows for both Ethernet and WiFi connectivity. 5 inch Touch Screen comes standard on all units.
The heart of the Daedalus motion system is the Genuine Gates Belt. Your unit will also come with 0.9-degree stepper motors, Linear Rails, and Lead Screws with Anti-Backlash. Much like our RailCore 3D Printer Kits, the Z-axis is driven by three independently drive lead screws allowing for true bed tramming (leveling) across the entire print surface down to <0.01mm. We do still use compensation to adjust for the remaining <0.01mm deviations.

Extruder and Hotend
The best motion system is nothing without a reliable extrusion and hotend setup.

Printing Reliably at Speed!
When you need a print job done well you tend to sacrifice speed to ensure quality, not anymore! The Daedalus is capable of draft speeds of 150mm/sec at 0.3mm layer heights and high-quality speeds of 120mm/sec at 0.02mm layer heights. With the rock-solid frame and top of the line motion system, you can maintain injection molding quality prints at double to triple the speeds of competitors low-quality prints.
