Cyrus 3D printer uses FFF ( Fused Filament Fabrication) technique using an 1.75mm filament 

In short, Yes and Yes. An heated bed fights  “warping” and “curling”. Warping occurs when the first couple of printed layers loses adhesion to the bed and starts bending away from the bed. This can cause the print to fail and in worse case scenario, the printed object can become loose before the print has finished.

Our heated bed is very unique and unlike other 3D printers. We use custom made industrial grade heaters.

The heated bed can draw up to 20A and the board needs another 5A. Overkill is underrated, so we’ve put an 400W power supply inside.

At the moment we deliver the printer with an single head. However the Cyrus 3D printer electronics come dual-head ready. This means you do not need new electronics for future use of the multihead option.
When we started making the Cyrus 3d printer, we set 1 goal in mind. “Zero compromise”. Unlike other (pro)consumer printers we did not cut costs on any part, including the Z axis resolution. Where other printers are using a standard threaded rod or leadscrew, we are using a ballscrew which assures a perfect and smooth motion each time which translates into a precision of up to 20 micron (0.02mm) under ideal settings. Keep in mind the lower you go, the longer it will take before the print has finished. Most users set the setting at somewhere between 100 and 200 microns
There are many ways to communicate with the printer.

This all depends on the operation of the printer by the user. It is not advisable to leave the machine unattended. An 3D printer is not a toy and children should not use the printer without proper guidance by an adult. Using the machine for other things than intended can possibly damage the printer irreversible. Stand clear from the heated bed and moving head during operation as the heated bed can reach temperatures up to 100 degrees and the extruder can reach temperatures up to 300 degrees!. If you wish to remove any filament sticking to the head, please use a plier.

When the printer is finished, please wait until the heated bed has cooled down before removing the product./accordion_item]

You can print almost all currently available materials like: PLA, ABS, LAYWOOD, LAYBRICK, Taulmann Nylon, Ninja flex
Each printer is custom made and tested thoroughly before being sent out. We supply the Cyrus printer on a first come first served principle. You can find the actual lead time on the product page when ordering. We take our assembly process very serious and everything is done in-house. 
You can print anything up to 195mm x 195mm x 200mm. Most design and users don’t print anything bigger than 20x20x20cm and most prints bigger than this take more time than anyone has to spare. Larger designs are cut into multiple parts to save time and decrease chances of print failure. Imagine you wanted to print a part which is 45 cm x 45 cm x 60 cm. If you had to do this with a single file, this will take at least 24 hours depending on your settings.
All our prices are excluding  VAT unless specified. Citizens outside the EU and companies inside the EU with an valid VAT number are exempt from paying the 21% VAT during checkout.  Keep in mind that you might be liable for paying import duties depending on your country. Please check with customs before ordering. The followig HS-Code applies to our printer; 8443.32.1090 and if you are ordering filament the HS-Code for this is; 8479.89.9899.
Our printer accepts the widely used G-code.
Unlike other printer companies, our printer comes with a 1 years factory warranty.
The printer complies with CE requirements.
All our printers are assembled and machined in-house in Netherlands. Our “zero compromise” philosophy means we take full control. From the design ..to fixing the last screw ..to the testing the printer. We make sure each printer is working properly before we ship it out. At the moment we are not planning selling kit versions of our printer. 
You can operate the Cyrus printer either wireless or through network connection. You need the “networkbox” to make use of this feature. This is a future option which will become available. The interactive and intuitive webinterface makes the operation of the printer a breeze. You can access the host control either from your computer or tablet.
To the maker and engineer, the sound will feel like music. To the novice, the noise will be the same like an normal paper printer. Cyrus uses well greases linear guides, this translates to sound levels between 40 db and 50db.
Yes and No. The electronics are open source and you can tweak it to your liking and the firmware is openly available. Replicating our printer requires high precision CNC machining and this is something that the average user has no access to. Thus releasing our design files will only benefit off-shore companies and not the individual open source enthusiast or engineer. We have released the files for the first version of the Cyrus printer which is available for download on thingiverse.
