Welcome to a novel approach to high performance FDM for industrial 3D printing!

After spending years developing ultra polymer materials, 3DXTECH introduced Gearbox™ HT2, to provide the most flexible industrial openmaterial 3D printer. 

Gearbox™ HT2 was designed with optionality in mind as it boasts a huge 18” x 18” by 32” heated build chamber that can reach up to 250°C, enabling the production of virtually any material available today on the market.  You can choose from the already pre-programmed materials like ULTEM™ 9085, ULTEM™ 1010 and PEKK, or given the full access to system parameters, you can run any of 3DXTECH’s expansive selection of materials, materials from another provider, or materials custom formulated to meet your unique requirements.

Since the launch of the platform, Gearbox™ HT2 has helped customers solve complex problems with some of the most demanding applications in the fields of Aerospace & Defense, National Research Labs, Government and Educational institutions.  The system does not require connection to the cloud, making it one of the most secure systems in the market capable of handling the most sensitive and confidential of projects. 

Made in the U.S.A

Gearbox™ HT2 and all 3DXTECH filaments are designed and manufactured in the USA leveraging local suppliers to ensure the most robust solution possible for factory operations.
