FELIXprinters came to life – like most successful 3D printer manufactures – straight out of the garage, fueled by the DIY attitude of the 3D printing community at that time.
Founder Guillaume Feliksdal started experimenting with 3D printers in 2010 and saw a lot of potential in this upcoming market. In 2011, together with Wilgo Feliksdal, his dad, Guillaume started FELIXprinters. The first 3D printer they put up for sale was the FELIX 1.0. which was a great success. The 1.0 was followed by numerous generations which won the company universal acclaim. The company has gained a healthy market share and is renowned for its quality, innovation and customer service.
This project was initiated to create a safe work environment and a controlled print room temperature for the Felix Pro Series without losing the open design. Additionally, the enclosure protects the print object from outside influences. The choice was made to produce the enclosure from Polycarbonate (also known as Lexan), which is very tough and transparent, so it’s still possible to watch your design being printed.
- Controlled print room temperature, better print quality.
- Safer work environment.
