INDUSTRIAL AUTOMATION MADE EASY

Non-Stop High-Resolution Prints

The large-scale BigRep VIIO 250 is a fully automated 3D printer for reliable continuous industrial manufacturing.

To achieve this, the machine is built with breakthrough automation features: a backup extruder function – Relay Mode, auto print bed calibration, auto-sequential printing, and the automated filament handler – Infinity Box. Featuring dual Smart Manufacturing Extruders and an intuitive user machine interface with animated guides, using an industrial 3D printer has never been this easy. These combined automation features deliver a big impact: maximized machine efficiency.

Designed for high efficiency, the VIIO 250 enables affordable production of functional parts with reduced energy consumption. 3D print more quality parts in less time so you can save costs and get production off your hands. With the VIIO 250, spend less time printing and more time doing.

FULLY AUTOMATED PRODUCTION FOR EVERY INDUSTRY

CAR

AUTOMOTIVE-GRADE PARTS

Produce durable parts for a range of applications in the automotive industry. The VIIO 250 prints with engineering-grade materials creating strong, light-weight parts. The high accuracy, repeatability, and resolution enable innovations at all stages of the design workflow.

Functional

FUNCTIONAL PROTOTYPES

Before going into final production, test designs and validate parts. The open-material system gives you the freedom to choose from a wide variety of filaments and accurately replicate the final part. Iterate quicker, slash fabrication costs, and get your products to market faster.

HUGE HIGH-RESOLUTION PARTS

Large-Scale Build Chamber

Achieve maximum geometric accuracy with VIIO 250’s actively temperature-controlled build chamber of 1000 mm x 500 mm x 500mm (build volume of 250 liters) that heats up to 50°C. The compact design offers large-format printing capabilities in a robust, sleek frame that fits in any workspace. If you move the machine to a different space, the automatic portal leveling fully recalibrates even after relocation so you can enjoy consistent print quality wherever you go.

MAXIMIZED EFFICIENCY

24/7 Automation

Enjoy the comfort features of a desktop 3D printer at an industrial level with automated bed mapping, filament flow rate adjustment, and x/y calibration. Enabling unattended production, the VIIO 250 comes with groundbreaking fully automated features: the Infinity Box and Relay Mode.

The Infinity Box loads new filament automatically when the material runs out during a print job without any intervention. Ensuring reliable non-stop printing, the VIIO 250 has Relay Modean auto-backup extruder functionality. It also has a new controls platform delivering industrial CNC quality and the convenience of instant over-the-air software updates of every new feature we release.

ADVANCED PRINT CONTROL

Dual Smart Manufacturing Extruders (SMX)

The VIIO 250 is equipped with dual Smart Manufacturing Extruders (SMX) capable of printing up to 350°C with engineering-grade and carbon-fiber materials. The extruders have LED light indicators to signal different statuses so you stay updated in a single glance.

Consistently achieve quick high-resolution complex 3D prints thanks to the intelligent embedded sensors and 3 nozzle sizes – 0.4mm, 0.6mm, and 1.0mm.

ENHANCED USABILITY & WORKFLOW MANAGEMENT 

Intuitive Machine User Interface

The new multi-lingual user interface is designed to make the 3D printer operation feel as natural as possible. Animated guides walk you through each step with clear information, statuses, alerts, and warnings, making it easy to understand and intuitively manage your print job.

Additionally, the Print Queue feature allows you to easily check and assign the order of your prints, ensuring efficient workflow management and maximum productivity.

CONTINUOUS FILAMENT HANDLING

The Infinity Box

You can press print and walk away without worrying about the filament running out thanks to the add-on feature – the Infinity Box.

The automatic filament handler detects when the material runs out during an active print job and loads new filament without anyone stepping in. It also doubles as an active keep-dry box to store filament in optimal conditions and holds spools of up to 8kg each. 

SECURE PRINT BED ADHESION

Precise Prints With Any Material

With a print bed temperature of up to 120°C, the VIIO 250 maintains uniform heat distribution for consistently robust parts. The print bed’s temperature also enables strong part adhesion thanks to the flexible SWITCHPLATE® removeable print bed surface. The heat keeps the print fixed in place, and when the printer cools down, you can easily pop the part off in seconds.

The magnetic SWITCHPLATE is removable and comes in different coatings for different materials so you can explore more material options.
