Large Print Volume: The bq Witbox is a domestic printer with DIN-A4 print volume (21 x 29.7 cm) and a height of up to 20 cm, meaning it has a greater capacity to print large-scale objects and multiple parts simultaneously than any other printer.
Made in Spain: bq manufactures the bq Witbox at the bq Spanish factory in Navarra, which is dedicated exclusively to the design and production of bq's printers. As bq manufactures their own products, they are able to enforce the very tightest quality controls, and they also apply their exact standards to their consumables in their dedicated production line in the Spanish town of Huesca.
Where beauty and safety combine: The bq Witbox has been painstakingly designed to optimism its functionality. It’s a fully enclosed printer with a locking front door system, preventing accidental access during printing and making it a particularly safe to use around children. The fully enclosed design helps to minimize noise, while preventing heat from escaping and controlling airflow - thus maintaining a constant temperature inside the printer.
A totally innovative printing system: The bq Witbox incorporates an innovative printing system inspired by the Fibonacci spiral, using a PTFE tube to feed the filament through. Thanks to this design, the feeder system is housed within the printer unit itself, reducing the amount of contact between the filament and the tube. This optimized design, combined with the reinforced Witbox chassis, enables you to create a printer network by stacking up to three bq Witbox one on top of the other.
3D printing of spectacular quality: Several factors affect the quality of 3D printing. One of them is the height of each layer: the lower the height, the better the level of detail and resolution of the printed object. It´s also very important for the printing base to be as level as possible. A toughened, laminated* glass base is incorporated in Witbox.
Open Source: You can run Witbox printer with a variety of open source software such as Slic3r™, Cura™, Pronterface™ and Repetier™. Enjoy greater freedom of use, greater compatibility and total technological independence. The hardware of bq Witbox is 100% open source, meaning you can modify it and adapt it however you like. At bq they keen to share all of their improvements, without restricting knowledge.
