Utrecht, April 2017 – We are very pleased to announce that The FELIX Pro Series has won the Gold price in the European Product Design Award in the category Office Equipment, Productivity Tools & Presentations.
FELIXprinters & Spark Design
“In the early stages of the development we worked very closely with Spark Design. Together with them we have drawn the primary design and determined the Pro Series features. The many hours we have both invested in the development truly paid off: we have a unique and eye-catching design. I am of course very proud that we’ve earned a gold award for the machine that we have both worked on“ – says Guillaume Feliksdal, CEO and head of Engineering at FELIXprinters.
“The complete appearance of the FELIX Pro is a leap forward from the previous models, while keeping the core values alive. Strengthening brand image, emphasizing brand promises and improving product quality. The integrated electronics, the carefully hidden wiring and the robust, continuous arc shape are the new Felix Pro symbols for elegance.” – is stated on productdesignaward.eu.
The ultimate and portable Desktop 3D printer
The FELIX Pro has many distinctive benefits which make it a desktop printer for professional use. For the ultimate easy-to-use experience, the print bed features revolutionary mechanical auto-leveling and a magnet-fix for easy interchanging of print beds. Because Felix sells globally, shipping size matters. We introduced a tilting print bed mount, that reduced the box size by 50%.
Many innovations were introduced in the extruder as well. All related to modularity, upgradeability and ease-of-use. We developed a hot-end mounting system that enables hot-end replacement in just seconds. A probing sensor has been integrated in the hot-end, enabling auto-leveling of the bed. And the dual head system includes a clever nozzle retractor, resulting in problem-free printing of multiple materials in one model.
