Raise3D Pro 3 3D Printer Review

Almost 3 and a half years after the release of the Raised3D Pro2 printer series Raise3D announced the release of an updated line of these printers. The new update is the Raise3D Pro3 3D printer.

The Raise3D Pro3 is like its predecessor, i.e., comes in two models:  Pro3 and Pro3 Plus. The Pro 3 is a more intelligent, modern 3D printer that makes small-scale production at home possible.

Let’s get started with this Raise3D Pro3 review.

Raise3D Pro3 Review

At first glance, the Pro3 does not look very different from its predecessor. This is because the company decided not to change the memorable look of its 3D printers. If you’ve seen a Raise3D printer, you’ll realize that are difficult to confuse with models from other manufacturers.

However, looking more closely at the Raise3D Pro3, you can see significant differences with its predecessor. For example, the bottom side has been reworked to improve the stability of the printer and make user interaction more convenient.

The heart of any 3D printer is the extruder. The Pro3 extruder has been completely redesigned to improve user convenience and reduce maintenance or replacement downtime. Now, the extruder can be quickly replaced in case of repairs, maintenance or changing the nozzle used.

The new extruder increases the resiliency of the printer and accelerates the transition process from some types of materials, for example, abrasive to conventional, or vice versa.,Raise3D Pro 3 3D Printer Review 2

The improved extruder also allows the Pro3 series printers to print using a variety of plastics, reduces jams, provides easy disassembly and replacement of components, and reduces machine downtime.

The new interchangeable hot end system is ideal for users who may require different types of nozzles or those who need to print at higher speeds with different nozzle sizes. The systems are designed with a snap-and-lock mechanism that requires no tools, and each is uniquely identified to track and record nozzle usage times.

While the Pro2 Series comes factory-calibrated, the Pro3 Series comes with an automatic platform calibration system, similar to the one in the Raise3D E2 3D printer. The print bed is flexible, making it easy to remove finished models.

The auto- calibration system is equipped with a BLTouch type contact sensor, and the printer display shows a 3D map of your site. If the error in heights is higher than normal, you can easily assess this visually. As a result, you get a more predictable printing experience. This is especially important when printing models at the maximum size, where even a small variation in heights can lead to unsuccessful printing, while the temporary losses will be colossal.

The Pro3 Series airflow manager is located on the back of the printer. This part improves heat dissipation and air circulation, creating a stable environment inside the print chamber.

Equipped with a HEPA air filter, the air flow manager can also filter and purify the air inside the chamber. As long as it operates within the recommended temperature range, airflow maintains a stable temperature inside the chamber, resulting in better repeatability of high quality results regardless of external conditions.

The air flow manager is important when it comes to  technical plastics such as ABS, Nylon, Carbon, PolyCarbonate and others. This solution improves interlayer adhesion and prevents model from sticking on the table.

The Raise3D Pro3 series printers also have a built-in intelligent assistant system called EVE. The EVE Assistant can guide users to pinpoint locations and troubleshoot issues that may affect the final print job. It also has a feature that analyzes printer usage and sends reminders of scheduled interventions to ensure timely printer maintenance.

Raise3D is the first company in its segment to implement this feature, taking the usability of professional 3D printers to the next level. Such functionality is useful for beginners who, not knowing all the intricacies of the operation and maintenance of the printer, can get prompt hints about problems related to their printing.

Other features of the Raise3D Pro3 include:

  • The Z-axis stiffness of the bar has been increased by 75% for more stable performance.

  • Door open sensor. When the door is opened, printing is paused immediately and resumed after the door is closed.
  • Second generation power loss recovery. This helps to preserve printing status in the event of a power outage and continue printing from the same point after power is restored.
  • Light cable with digital temperature measurement .

  • HD camera with improved image quality and exposure sensitivity .

Even with all the improvements, the Raise3D Pro3 still maintains a large print area, 7′ color touch display, two extruders that heat up to 300℃, and a transparent body that allows you to see the 3D printing process.
