Artillery Sidewinder X2: The improved 3D printer has undergone a design change
Model Artillery Sidewinder X2 directly follows its predecessor, the Sidewinder X3 1D printer. We can see the changes at a glance, on the design page. The main one is the Z-axis design, which is light blue, plastic and marked "Sidewinder" in the newer printer. The dimensions of the printer are 550 x 405 x 640 millimeters, the weight is 14 kilograms.
Other design changes can be observed in the area of flat cable connector holders or covers, as well as the motherboard. Some changes have even been requested by the customers themselves. The community of first-generation owners demanded a better grip on the filament and its dispenser, and this part was also improved.
The Sidewinder X3 2D printer brings space for level printing 400 x 300 x 300 millimeters. The function of automatic adjustment and adaptation of the printing pad is directly connected to this space (the X1 model has a fixed pad). The motherboard is also new, the 8-bit Makerbase MKS Gen L has been replaced by an up to 32-bit proprietary model called Ruby, from Artillery.
In addition to advances in computing power, the new board also brings smoother operation during printing. From the previous generation, a 3,5 ″ touch screen with a color interface and a full-fledged USB port are retained. These control options are unchanged, but the software, which is "open-source", so we can expect further modifications and updates in the future.
