This is quite the snazzy lookin’ 3D printer – and it comes all the way from beautiful Barcelona. It’s the BCN3D Sigma 3D Printer!
It has a unique, Independent Dual Extruder system that allows you to print two (2!) different materials or colors while ensuring the finest surface finish. The idle toolhead remains parked, preventing the dripping of molten plastic onto the part being printed.
You can print up to three times faster without sacrificing any quality: outlines are finer and infills are coarser. Reengineered cooling strategies allow for maintaining the performance while drastically reducing the operating sound. Additionally, redesigned stepper drivers and improved power management set a new milestone when it comes to the accuracy of FFF 3D printers.
With its optimized full metal hot ends the Sigma can print any material you need to fit your requirements, from the common PLA, ABS, and PVA to the most advanced technical plastics like Nylon or PC.
The BCN3D Sigma box contains:
1x Quick Start Guide
2x Bowden Tubes
4x Flat cable clips
2x Spools holders
2x Cleaning Rubbers
1x Power Cable
1x SD Card
1x USB Cable
2x PLA Spools
1x Cross-head screwdriver
3x Allen Keys
1x Nylon filament
Add-on nozzles: 1x 0.4mm hot end + 1x 0.6mm hot end
1x Sample print
Make sure you keep all these tools with you, as they will help you through all the BCN3D Sigma life.

I sincerely hope this revision is far better than last year. We bought one to replace a replicator 2 and we’re extremely disappointed. The old replicator prints way better! This printer is rattly and seeming needs a ton of software tweaks to get decent quality prints. Maybe I was spoiled with makerbot? Like I said maybe BCN has improved but after a year bit for the cost o was shocked at the relative low quality results.
