Tel Aviv-based 3D printer self-assembly kit maker Modix has released its Extra Large X120 3D Printer.
The Extra Large X120 is available to pre-order for $6000. Instead of buying the new printer, customers can also buy a modular upgrade to X120’s predecessor the Big-60 for $2500.
The printer can be assembled using Modix’s assembly manual and video instructions with free technical support.
Modix will be exhibiting the 120X at this year’s TCT Birmingham (25-27 September). Interested individuals can satisfy their curiosity at Stand E21, where the new release will be displayed.
The company’s founder and CEO, Shachar Gafni, said, “the Extra Large 120X advances our strategy of building large, high quality modular 3D printers […] This latest release confirms Modix’s dedication to building affordable, innovative, and heavy duty 3D printing solutions for designers, artists and engineers.”
