With the addition of a second hotend, the MakerGear M2 is able to print with easily removable support materials such as peelable PolySupport or water soluble BVOH. You can also use this dual extruder machine to print in multiple materials. Each M2 Dual Extruder 3D Printer is assembled and thoroughly tested in our Beachwood, OH production facility.
We know that high precision print quality, especially over time, can’t exist without high-quality components. When you combine these components with our made in the USA quality, it's easy to see why we are regarded as the top-choice for industrial level precision at an affordable price. Additionally, we have made this durable machine completely modular, so that maintenance is a breeze — this means less time troubleshooting, more time innovating.
Please note that our M2 Dual is our 1st generation Dual Extruder 3D printer. If you are new to 3D printing, we strongly recommend the M3-ID, which is much easier to use and has additional functionality like Mimeo Mode.
