The bq Witbox is a domestic printer with DIN-A4 print volume (21 x 29.7 cm) and a height of up to 20 cm, meaning it has a greater capacity to print large-scale objects and multiple parts simultaneously than any other printer.
bq manufacture the bq Witbox in the Spanish factory in Navarra, which is dedicated exclusively to the design and production of our printers. As we manufacture our own products, we’re able to enforce the very tightest quality controls, and we also apply our exacting standards to our consumables on our dedicated production line in the Spanish town of Huesca.
The bq Witbox has been painstakingly designed to optimise its functionality. It’s a fully enclosed printer with a locking front door system, preventing accidental access during printing and making it a particularly safe to use around children. The fully enclosed design helps to minimise noise, while preventing heat from escaping and controlling airflow – thus maintaining a constant temperature inside the printer.
The bq Witbox incorporates an innovative printing system inspired by the Fibonacci spiral, using a PTFE tube to feed the filament through. Thanks to this design, the feeder system is housed within the printer unit itself, reducing the amount of contact between the filament and the tube. This optimised design, combined with the reinforced Witbox chassis, enables you to create a printer network by stacking up to three bq Witboxes one on top of the other.
Several factors affect the quality of 3D printing. One of them is the height of each layer: the lower the height, the better the level of detail and resolution of the printed object. It´s also very important for the printing base to be as level as possible. A toughened, laminated* glass base is incorporated in Witbox.
You can run Witbox printer with a variety of open source software such as Slic3r™, Cura™, Pronterface™ and Repetier™. Enjoy greater freedom of use, greater compatibility and total technological independence.
The hardware of bq Witbox is 100% open source, meaning you can modify it and adapt it however you like. At bq we´re keen to share all our improvements, without restricting knowledge.
