The Tronxy X5S – 500 is one the newest 3D printers in the market and it has instantly created a fuss among the customers worldwide with its dual aluminum frame capable of printing in a large scale. The printer designed to work with a wide variety of materials. It provides customers with the most technical characteristics that are required of a printer. The printer provides users with very high-quality 3D printing with consistent up to the mark performance from the word go.
Tronxy X5S – 500 Review
The tronxy X5S – 500 has a lot of features which make it unique in its own way. From the design to the quality of its work, it is a very sophisticated piece of machinery. Let us look at these features this machine provides us with.
A complete 3D printing Kit:
The Tronxy X5S – 500 comes with a full 3D printing kit with a variety of rods, nuts and pieces of the body. It is not so complex to assemble all the parts together as some parts come pre-assembled. If you are even an amateur or a first timer in purchasing this sort of product, it will take about 5 or 6 hours to assemble all the parts together.
Full colored LCD touchscreen
It comes with a 3.5-inch full colored touch screen. The LCD would be found on the upper right side of the printer, firmly attached to the aluminum frame. The display allows the user to find the necessary detail of the printing such as printing speed, temperature and other info’s.
Filament Runout Detector
While the printing process is on going the filament in the printer may run out. But The X5S – 500 has a filament runout detector which will stop the printing automatically, after the filament is replaced the printing will resume again from that position of printing.
No worries in power outage
The power may go out in the process of printing. But when the power comes back on, the tronxy XS5 – 500 will continue printing from the point where power had gone out. This is very unique feature of this device.
Architecture & Design
The Tronxy X5S-500 has a very beautiful design and a very large printing area which reaches 500 x 500 x 600 mm. It has a very smooth platform and a nice surface for the model to be printed on. No glue or sticker is needed for printing. It also has a dual framing which is very stable. It is highly compatible for large size printing
Stability in structure
The Tronxy X5S – 500 has a body made fully of aluminum framing, which makes this beast very much stable. This aluminum frame is more reliable than most acrylic framed printers.
Quality at its best
The X5S – 500 delivers where it matters the most. It produces very high-quality 3D printing results.
It is the combination of pulley bearing and linear bearing working in between the three axes. The X and Y axes uses pulley bearings and the Z axis uses linear LM8UU bearings. Their existence is defined by the quality and accuracy the X5S – 500 provides us with. It has established the perfect combination of machinery for the best quality of work.
Faster printing capability
The X5S-500 has a printing speed which goes up to 100 mm per second. This speed may vary between printing results. This speed will be consistent considering the right drivers and boards installed. The drivers and boards are important factors in this factor.
Double fan cooling
Sometimes the filament inside the X5S – 500 may heat up. So, in order to ensure a stable temperature inside the printer two cooling fans are installed.
Dual Lead Screw
The z axis of the X5S -500 has a double lead screw that provides high transmission stability for the device itself.
The main power supply system is designed with out the risk of electric shock or what so ever. The electric components are very nicely placed so that the cooling fan ensure the stable environment.
The tronxy X5S – 500 comes with a SD card or a TF card slot as well as an USB for the Computer. With the SD card slot you can work offline. The files have to be the of the same criteria as the printer needs.
The Tronxy X5S – 500 has a slight problem managing the heat system. So, if the printer is not heated up to the temperature the print won’t start. This may lead to some quality degrade of the printings. So, users have to be careful about the temperature of the printer while printing.
The Tronxy X5S – 500 has to be put in rest for the heat of the machine to cool down.
Otherwise it will result in overheating the printer.
PSU not generating enough heat
The biggest con that is considered about the Tronxy X5S – 500 is the power supply unit (PSU).
Sometimes the 12V power supply is not high enough for more advanced printing. So, the 12V power supply unit has to be replaced with a 24V power supply unit for better temperature gaining.
The Tronxy X5S – 500 is hands down one of the best quality 3D printers. The printed products are very fine and up to the mark. It is very useful for industry, medical and educational purposes. Of course, the X5S – 500 comes with some flaws, as of every other product in the market does. But the flaws are very little in this device after all it is offering high quality printing. Experience will play a very important role in using this machine. Beginners may face some difficulties at first, but for anyone with some experience and knowledge of the dynamics of 3D printing, the X5S-500 is highly recommended.
