Acadian Robotics is excited to announce our first machine, The Copperhead 3D printer. The Copperhead is built to be sturdy, reliable, and accessible. It is designed to fit any production need. With The Copperhead you can
"TOUCH YOUR IMAGINATION".
The Copperhead has a carbon fiber vinyl composite structure which gives it superior strength and rigidity. It is available in 3 colors, black, blue, and red.
The extruder, extruder mount, and extruder motor is stationary. It can be modified to use any type or number of motors without affecting the weight of the Z carriage.
The Copperhead does not use belts. Instead we replaced them with a rack and pinion system. Belts lose tension over time which cause inconsistency with prints. Belts have to be tightened to maintain accuracy and then the machine has to be recalibrated. With the Copperhead's rack and pinion system we have eliminated the need to tighten or replace belts. This system will help you to use your printer more than having to maintain it.
**PICTURES SHOWN ARE OF THE PROTOTYPE AND NOT THE PRODUCTION MODEL. UPDATES COMING SOON**
