Tumaker, a manufacturer of industrial 3D printers such as the Big Foot Pro industrial 3D printer, has also developed the NX Pro desktop 3D printer that allows the user to choose between single filament or pellet extrusion, as well as dual extrusion with filament, pellets or filament and pellets. The NX Pro comes without or with enclosure (with fan and HEPA filter), and combines reliability, versatility, robustness, user-friendliness and aesthetics typical of the Tumaker products.
The total print volume also depends on the extrusion system chosen. In order to consult the specific build volumes for each variety of the NX Pro printer, please consult the Technical datasheets available in the Downloads section as well as the Specifications section.
The NX Pro 3D printer was designed for maximum performance in the most demanding conditions. With the minimum maintenance, NX Pro gives maximum profitability and its components manufactured and assembled in Europe guarantee reliability and sturdiness.
Tumaker answers different manufacturing needs by offering 5 different extrusion systems for the NX Pro 3D printer:
The NX Pro 3D printer is capable of working with virtually all materials developed for 3D printing, be it in filament or pellet format. The materials compatible with each NX Pro extrusion system as well as the maximum extrusion and bed temperatures are listed in the table below:

Thanks to the high maximum extrusion temperatures and the possibility to 3D print with pellets, the NX Pro 3D printer allows for the use of an extremely wide range of materials, from standard commodity plastics, through flexibles or engineering materials reinforced with fibers or particles, to ceramic and metallic polymers, and advanced high-temperature polymers from the PAEK family.
The Direct Drive HR extrusion system for filaments features a professional printing head with a state-of-the-art double mechanical gear system with a 10 kg push force. This amount of force ensures correct filament flow towards the nozzle and helps avoid jams or underextrusion. This extrusion system, in the single or dual version, is ideal for users who work exclusively or mostly with flexible filaments.
The NX Pro filament extrusion system can work at a maximum temperature of 300 ºC for filament, which allows the use of high-temperature filaments such as ASA, ABS, PETG, HIPS, PC and flexibles. Many nozzle diameters can be used with the NX Pro filament extrusion systems, ranging from 0.15 mm to 0.8 mm. The nozzle can heat up to the maximum temperature of 300 ºC in around 2 minutes and the unique ANS ultra-fast nozzle change system allows for a straighftorwad nozzle change.
The Fig Foot Pro utilizes Tumaker's unique EMAXX2 extruders for filament. These extruders provide the highest strategically distributed double traction force, and the industrial strength TB6600 power drivers (up to 4A) allow to obtain the maximum power with the best guarantee and reliability.
As far as the Tumaker Dual Direct Drive HR extrusion system, it opens up a world of possibilities for using different colors and materials in one print or the 3D printing of complex structures with support materials, without the risk temperature contamination. The NX Pro 3D dual extrusion printers also use the EMAXX2 extruders in an IDEX extrusion system, which means there are two extruders that move independently of one another on the X axis.
The extruders incorporated into the NX Pro extrusion system are fully machined, which ensures reliability and durability. The NX Pro IDEX extrusion system also allows to print in different modes to duplicate objects or create two mirrored versions of the same object, which significantly increases productivity.
Furthermore, the incorporated end-of-filament sensor ensures safe 3D printing as it enables the user to pick up the interrupted printing session where it ended once new filament has been loaded. Another feature of the NX Pro printer that boosts productivity is the fact that it can work with large-format spools. This solution avoids up to 8 filament changes, which reduces the need for user intervention during the printing process and lowers the risk of failed prints due to lack of filament.
When it comes to single and dual pellet extrusion with the NX Pro printer, it is yet another step to making additive manufacturing more accessible and efficient.
3D printing with pellets opens up barriers to using materials that perhaps not available in filament format, testing self-developed materials or printing with certified pellets for the food industry, railway, automotive, medical sector, and many others.
The NX Pro dual extrusion system for pellets (capable of reaching up to 350 ºC) features a print head designed by Tumaker, with a double integrated temperature sensor. The recommended material are circular pellets of a 3-5 mm diameter.
Tumaker has gone yet further by introducing a fifth printing mode - a dual mode in which one printing head extrudes filament and the other works with pellets.
This level of modularity and versatility makes the NX Pro an extremely valuable and powerful additive manufacturing tool that allows the user to adjust the NX Pro printers to the current manufacturing needs and experiment with the complexity of the 3D printed parts as well as with the types and formats of the materials used.
The NX Pro 3D printer is equipped with a 32-bit processor that ensures printing stability and allows for reaching fast printing speeds. The innovative TMC2660 drivers make NX Pro ultra-quiet, with a 44 dB noise level (40 db with the enclosure door closed). The high precision ball screws allow for an increase in the speed of displacement of the printing heads, and the 45 mm aluminium frame ensures the highest possible stability.
The fast heating build plate of the NX Pro 3D printer incorporates a continuous semi-automatic calibration system. The printing head performs a manufacturing basis measurement once the initial calibration is done, which allows NX Pro to automatically correct without the need for manual adjustments.
NXPro offers various connectivity options (depending on the model): USB, WiFi, Micro/SD card or Ethernet. The user interface is a 5" color touchscreen and NX Pro can be controlled via a PC, a tablet or even a smartphone. The software that comes with NX Pro is Simplify 3D, and it comes with a perpetual licence for use convenience.
The NX Pro by Tumaker is a powerful desktop solution for advanced, versatile and efficient additive manufacturing. With its fast heating semiautomatic levelling build plate, quick change nozzle, many available nozzle diameters, safety features and a straightforward user interface, NX Pro enables printing with a wide range of materials in filament and pellet format, including printing with supports or with various colors and materials in one session. The various available The NX Pro 3D printer by Tumaker will produce high quality complex parts for any project, be it for prototyping, end-use manufacturing, or experimental purposes.
