The Pellet-X architectural 3D printer is compatible with most six-axis industrial robots and allows flexible printing of large building components. Data from building plans can be imported directly into the control platform and implemented efficiently and accurately.

The device has a strong adaptability of a wide range of printing materials. With common plastic pellets as printing material, the cost will be reduced by 75% compared to wire printing. The main printing material of PELLET-X is PETG. It also supports the printing of a variety of mainstream materials and their modified products, such as high-temperature resistance, fiber reinforcement, toughness enhancement and other modifications to PLA, PETG, PC, TPU, nylon and other materials. In addition, smart 3D printing devices can extrude thermoplastic materials with melt temperatures below 400°C, which can be recycled and reused.
