The first Open Source 3d Printer...
USING A MAGNETIC LEVITATION SYSTEM

Amazing Features

Fa)(a is a modular and scalable printer, able to print any material and entirely customizable in every single aspect

Resolution

Accurate printing up to 50 micron (0.05 mm). XY placement 15 micron, Z placement 5 micron.

Speed

Silent and fast printing, up to 200 mm/s!

Filaments

The printer is compatible with all kinds of filaments, including PLA, ABS, Nylon, HIPS, PVA.

Size

Falla 3D is scalable up to a 90x60x60 cm printing area (Printer size 100x70x70 cm)

Double Extruder

With a single FUM hotend, with a classic double 3mm hotend or with a 1.75 Bowden system.

WiFi Connection

Wireless printing through Octoprint, without using PC.





Why using magnetic levitation?

The Fa)(a bars for X and Y axes include neodymium magnets, creating a real magnetic levitation! This feature extremely reduces the friction during the printing, unburdening the motors and supporting any printing acceleration.

  • With Fa)(a you can print faster
  • The printer is much more silent
  • The resultant features allow a higher precision
  • The wearing out of the nylon guides becomes negligible

A modular project

We love the idea of a printer suitable to any of your particular requirements. We believe in easily sharing your needs in order to let them being developed by the OpenSource community.

Fa)(a 3D has a simple snap-fit connexion near the extruder, connected with the sliding system of the X axis through a 9 poles plug, so that you can use any extruder/hotend, both 3mm and 1.75.

If you need a fast print you can put a bigger hotend up, but if you need a really accurate print you can use a smaller hotend! You can exchange it in less than 3 mins.

The printing platter is being modified in order to have the space for the Bowden 1.75mm extruders in the back frame, where you can also find the stands for the filament reels.

FAQ

You can purchase and build your own Fa)(a in the FabLab nearest to you. Here you have all the infos
  • Is Fa)(a 3D ¬†OpenSource?

    Totally, in every single part...even the organization is Open! If you want to build Fa)(a on your own you can find all our projects in our Github account, linked at the end of this page.
  • Where can I find it?

    You can find it in your nearest FabLab! We will advertise the Fa)(a workshops on our social channels too and in the website section below.
  • How much is it?

    We consider the starting price to be 660 ‚ā¨ (IVA 22% incl.) including the kit and the workshop. This price would decrease depending on the number of participants, who obtain a 6% discount every 5 participants, up to a 12% for every 10 participants.
