Enhanced Printing Speed & Stability
5 Times Faster Speed Than Ever
Kobra 2 can achieve a maximum print speed of 250mm/s, which is five times faster than most desktop FDM printers available on the market. For example, a standard 3DBenchy print typically requires 108 minutes. However, Kobra 2 can print it in just 30 minutes. There is no FDM printer priced below $300 that can match the speedy and cost-effective Kobra 2; it truly delivers on the promise of "Print Fast and Pay Less".
Dynamic and Solid Structure
The improvement in speed inevitably requires a more flexible and sturdy structure to reduce resistance and vibrations during printing. To achieve this, Kobra 2 is equipped with double metal spindles and SG15 bearings on the X and Y axes. This design minimizes resistance generated by the movement of the print head and the heated bed. Compared to traditional rubber wheels, Kobra 2's new structure not only guarantees stability but also provides durability due to its wear-resistant metal material, ultimately extending the lifespan of the machine.
Furthermore, besides the upgrades on the X and Y axes, a stable Z-axis is crucial for maintaining high print quality. Kobra 2 uses a double-threaded rod on the Z-axis significantly reduces issues like ringing, ghosting, Z-wobble, and Z-banding. These improvements highlight Kobra 2 is a robust, long-lasting printer that operates with reliability.
Unlocking a Smart & User-Friendly Printing Experience
LeviQ 2.0 System
Printing a perfect first layer is often a primary concern for many users. Kobra 2 has taken a series of measures to deliver excellent print quality in this regard. It continues LeviQ system, which is a self-developed bed-leveling system by Anycubic, enabling users to enjoy the ease of automatic bed calibrating. However, Kobra 2 distinguishes itself from other models in Anycubic Kobra series with its upgraded LeviQ 2.0 system. This new version offers more precise leveling through the improved algorithms, and it also features a smart Z-offset function. This means no need to manually adjust Z-offset, but also allows users to customize the value according to their specific requirements.
Effortless Setup and Easy to Use
Anycubic focuses on detailed design to facilitate actual operations. Kobra 2 comes with various features to enhance the printing experience for users. They can be captured on Kobra 2, and let's move to other detailed functionalities of the printer. The controller has a large 4.3-inch LCD touchscreen, offering sufficient brightness and sensitivity for easy operation. Then, the magnetic spring steel build plate makes print removal effortless, while the filament sensor detects material availability, allowing for uninterrupted printing. The resume-printing function safeguards against accidental power loss. All of these design features aim to provide users with a strong 3D printer for their creative art projects.
