continues to advance their vision for the future of 3D
printing with the launch of the Pro2 series 3D printers.
Raise3D CEO Diogo Quental said, “Even if our N2 printers
have been considered among the best for desktop fabrication by
Make Magazine and 3D Hubs Community, there was still room for
improvement in some features. We carried out a full revision of
our N2 series and designed a new printer with the best
performance and quality components we could develop or find in
The Raise N2 FFF 3D Printer was shortlisted for a
2017 3D Printing Industry Award. Our
readers have again nominated the popular 3D printer from
Raise3D in this year’s Awards.

While the Pro2 Series printers may appear very similar to
the N2 Series, Raise3D says “the two lines of printers are

Pro2 and Pro2 Plus technical specifications and pricing
The Pro2 is available at a pre-sale price of $3,999.00.
The 3D printer has a dual extruder and features electronic
driven lifting, Raise3D says this gives 4× increased torque
performance. A layer height of 0.01mm is possible and the 300ºC
printing ability means a wide range of filaments are
compatible. Filament options include PLA. ABS, PP, HIPS, PETG
and more. Control and display is via a 7″ Touch Screen with
wireless capability. It is also possible to resume 3D printing
after a power outage.

The build volume of the Raise3D Pro2 depends upon whether
a dual or single extruder is used. In single mode the volume is
305x305x300mm (12x12x11.8 inch). For dual, 280x305x300mm
(11x12x11.8 inch) is the build volume.
The Pro2 Plus series is available for a pre-sale price of
$5,999.00. The specifications above are expanded to include a
filament sensor, camera and filter. However it is the increased
build volume that will draw many to the Pro2 Plus. Operating
with a single extruder a build volume of 305x305x605mm
(12x12x23.8 inch) is available. In dual extrusion mode the
build volume is 280x305x605mm (11x12x23.8 inch).

The pathway to flexible manufacturing
The Pro2 Series 3D printer range marks a new phase in the
development of Raise3D. Accompanying today’s launch is the an
update on the company’s vision to pathfind flexible
Raise3D Chairman, Edward Feng, shares his vision for
flexible manufacturing and low-volume manufacturing in the
Flexible manufacturing is an extension of the growing
number of desktop FDM 3D printing factories. Raise3D believes
that such systems are advantageous due to their relatively
affordability, citing a capital cost starting at $50,000. A
flexible manufacturing system will be useful for batches
reaching several thousand 3D prints, they also, “easy to learn,
easy to maintain, easy to upgrade and easy to scale-up.”
As highlighted by the 3D Printing Industry series,
trends in additive manufacturing for
production, 3D printing is increasingly
finding application for such purposes.
In an earlier interview with Quental, the Raise3D CEO
elaborates further on his
strategy for industrial 3D printing and
the roadmap to 2020.

At 3D Printing Industry, we look forward to experiencing
the new Raise3D line of 3D printers for ourselves. Those
attending RAPID next month will also have the opportunity to
see the 3D printers first hand.
