Why did they get a dual independent extruder? Why an aluminium frame? Custom electronics? This last entity is a long time experienced technological center located in Barcelona mainly specialized in advanced manufacturing. This seems not to have any relation with the BCN3D Sigma but in fact is the main reason for it to exist. They were able to see something not visible in the big rapid prototyping machines: How the part is made.
But they also saw something undesirable: Those RepRap Machines were unreliable when used intensively. Moreover, the quality of the outcoming parts was far away from the professional technologies results.
None of those visitors could become users: they did expected better features. The influence of the big sisters, the SLS and the SLA, as well as the suggestions of the visitors, made us try to solve those problems and shorten the distance between professional rapid prototyping machines and the RepRapBCN machines.
Before starting to invent new machines, though, we would try to get the best of the RepRap concept. An upgrade was available for experimented users to start printing with two extruders. At that moment it was not common a printer with two hotends, but there was enough information in the RepRap project to get the mechanics and the firmware adaptation done.
So we did it. Results were a little disappointing. We achieved the fact of printing with two materials but we had many other problems related with the process: Carriage was heavy and quality in the final part was lower than the one obtained from single extruder printing.
The calibration process was complex and not understandable for new users. Finally, the oozing from the idle nozzle affected the part when the other nozzle was working. As you may know, by that time, 3D printing was the most followed technology and the hype was extreme. So we started a new design.
It is funny now to remember the first concept for the Sigma: A cubic machine made in aluminium profiles. But the disrupting point was that our chief engineer found a video in youtube of somebody printing with independent nozzles. Finally we had found something that would possibly make those visitors become future users and the big sisters RP machines less big.
We only had to do it reliable when sold in large numbers. All the design process was conditioned by the dual printing concept. We needed something more sturdy than assembled aluminium profiles, so we designed this aluminium welded frame. We needed an easy calibration for the more complex architecture, then we added a LCD touch screen able to guide the user through the process.
We needed electronics able to rule 6 axis and be reliable so we designed custom electronics… Everything on the machine is intended to make this independent dual extruder easy to operate, understand and maintain. In the specific repositories you will find technical details in those solutions that had made this dual extruder system possible and the files will supporting this explanation.
Open Source not only means code, it also concerns hardware. Our goal is justify the decisions we took and share the know-how we acquired so far. You can consult both the CAD files and the technical drawings.
During the concept design stage we set a clear target which determined the whole design and decisions: The BCN3D Sigma is a professional printer.
It has to look like a professional equipment. Our previous printers were made with aluminium extruded profiles and plastic printed parts. That made sense for printers oriented to makers or schools, sold as a kit. But, in this case, aesthetic was a major player. For this reason, we adopted a welded aluminium frame, which allows the Sigma to be a unique and attractive 3D printer.GitHub is home to over 40 million developers working together to host and review code, manage projects, and build software together.

Instead of using a different power supply or designing a new heated bed PCB, it was decided to just duplicate the components. That allowed us to reduce the development times and costs. As a result, it was needed to redefine the power line.
The rest of the components and circuits remain unchanged. Skip to content. Dismiss Join GitHub today GitHub is home to over 40 million developers working together to host and review code, manage projects, and build software together.

Expect days for delivery. This reduces underextrusion issues caused by heat creep and provides a more reliable extrusion under different environments. New thermistor cartridge enhances the heat transfer, providing a more accurate reading and a more consistent extrusion.
More 3D printing parameters to control : Now it is possible to independently adjust Flow Rates and Layer Fan Speeds for each hotend during manufacturing process. Hotend identification : The user can select the hotends installed, which improves the calibration process and prevents from mismatching gcode configurations. More materials preset s: The Load Filament assistant now includes more material presets to ease the process to the user.
This meant that space was a challenge. Another challenge was time. This allowed BCN3D to save precious time in both hardware design and firmware development — the plug-and-play solution was already working with the machine.
The first prototypes were designed within the next month, showing some issues with heat dissipation and layout.
Two more prototypes were designed before the final design was finished and tested. The new driver not only results in silent motors. As such, the new stepper motor module implies that it prints products of a higher quality, eliminating visual defects in printed products. Read more about the heat dissipation issue here.
Success Stories. Revamping the stepper motor module According to Marc Cobler, Electronics Hardware Engineer at BCN3D, silence of operation and smoothness of the movements are the main selling points for additive manufacturing machines for the desktop.
Eliminating defects of prints The new driver not only results in silent motors. Our compact drivers and leading-edge technology enable 3D printers to be silent and small, while at the same time reducing cost of ownership.

As a declared Open Source organization, it's in our mission to release all the original design files to you to be able to learn, reuse and improve. Open Source not only means code, it also concerns hardware. We strongly believe that using high quality components has an effect on the electronics performance as well as in the printer performance.
This is why we ensure components quality and control of the production process by designing and manufacturing in Barcelona. In this manner we iterate faster, reducing time to market. We know this is still an 8-bit platform but we're working on optimizing it to the max and thinking in the next generation of 3D Printing Electronics. Always Open Source.
