different operating modes – all included.
- X-Y mode : Left and right towers run simultanious and parallel while the rotation platform functions as material holder. Great for quick 2D shapes like : logo’s , texts, numbers, wall panels and hundreds of other shapes. Cut up to 90 cm. thick material in one pass.
- X-Y / U-V mode : left and right towers run independent and can create complex 3D tapered shapes like airplane wings, tapered colums and countless other shapes up to 900 x 900 x 880 mm. in size.
- X-Y-A & X-Y-U-V-A mode : independent left and right towers combined with a rotation platform can create twisted & tapered objects, automatic “cut & twist” or unlimited “twist-cut-twist” shapes.
Free access to our online gcode builder
Turn any line or vector into 3-Dimensional shapes using our easy and free online gcode converter. Insert a circle -> cut a sphere, insert a triangle -> cut a cone, insert the outline of a chesspiece, vase, column, candleholder, or any other simple 2d outline and instantly convert it to a full-size 3D product.
