Modix Big-Meter 3D Printer - Generation 4

Modix Big-Meter 3D Printer - Generation 4

The new Modix Generation 4 enjoys a fresh updated design and a modern logo font. In addition, the enclosure has been improved by adding the following features:

  • Pneumatic top lid
  • Rear maintenance opening hatch
  • Sturdy door hinges
  • Door and lid sealing strips 
  • Improved internal led lighting 


Print Volume:

1,000 x 1,000 x 1,000 mm (XYZ)

Machine Size:

1,300 x 1,470 x 1,830 mm (W xH x D)

* not including filament spools on the left side



Delivery method: Self assembly kit

IDEX dual printing add-on

IDEX” stands for independent dual extruder, where each extruder is independently controlled. Meaning, while the active extruder is printing, the second extruder is “parked” outside the printing area. Therefore, printing advanced models with
internal geometries is made possible more easily, by using water-soluble filament.

The IDEX is sold as an add-on in all generation 4 printers. 

It includes:

    • Secondary printing subsystem: Griffin print head, clog detector, PTFE, spool mount.
    • Motion system: secondary Y axis motor with the required components (belts, pulleys etc.).
    • Metal brackets for both Y axis and print heads
    • Wires, drag chains and optical end-stops.

Fully automated calibration

With Generation 4, all our line of 3D printers now come with the electronic expansion board named “Duex 5” (before, this was provided by default only with BIG-Meter and BIG-180X models).

By using Duex 5, a dedicated stepper motor driver is allocated for each Z and X axis motor. As a result, Modix printers now offer a full set of automated calibration routines to all Generation 4 models, including automated bed tilt, bed leveling, gantry alignment and Z offset calibration.

Fast 3D Printing

Modix’s Generation 4 printers are capable of printing significantly much faster than before.  Travel
speed of up to 350 mm/s, and high quality printing at 100 mm/s and higher
speeds for printing at draft quality.

This higher print speed has been made possible thanks to strong NEMA 23 motors on the X axis instead of NEMA-17 motors. In addition, the weight has been reduced on the Y axis as the weight of one motor is split now into two independent ones, using the IDEX setup.

Emergency stop button

Modix Generation 4 models are all equipped with an emergency stop button. The stop button resets the Duet controller and stops printing immediately. 

Improved Z axis

Modix Generation 4 3D printers have stronger Nema-23 motors and CNC machined brackets that hold the bed firmly and at a higher level of accuracy.

Optical end-stops

End-stop switches are now upgraded to optical switches in all Generation 4 printers. Optical switches are more accurate and have a high level of repeatability over time. This is especially important for job recovery after a power outage.

Improved PTFE management

With Generation 4, the PTFE tube rests in a roller guide that ensures its most relaxed position and as a result this reduces the friction inside the tube.

    Frontal power switch, tilt screen & emergency button

    The BIG-Meter now has some add-ons by default:

    • Tilt screen – the tilt touch screen provides easier access to information and commands for customers at different heights. It is also very convenient to use during system calibration: you can rotate the touch screen for easy access when you are working and looking at the print head performance.
    • Frontal secondary power switch – this feature is very convenient if the printer is located in a tight corner, or in between other equipment.
    • Large secondary reset button – improves accessibility to the reset button.
