The printer looks very much similar to Tractus 3D T850. The only difference you will find is in the build volume, to be specific in terms of the building height.
It is larger than T850 and hence the largest offering that Tractus has to offer in terms of desktop 3D printers.
The construction of this 3D printer is like all other 3D printers made by Tractus which is, Delta.
There are three stands arranged and connected forming a triangular fashion. Each of them has rails over it.
These rails allow for an up-down movement of the nozzle system after one layer of the part or functional prototype is 3D printed.
There is also a difference in the length of the touchscreen interface between T1250 and T850. The latter has a five-inch long user interface whereas the former has seven inches long.
The placement of the filament spool holder is typically over the head of the printer.
Overall, it has a stable look which is not highly attractive but giving you the sense of how stable it will stay during the course of 3D printing a part or functional prototype.
Tractus 3D T1250 will come completely assembled. But all of you who haven’t got a hand on 3D printing before this 3D printer are advised to go through the manual that comes along.
Doing so would let you get a hold of the parts that make up this 3D printer and its functionality.
As mentioned above, the bed leveling of T1250 is automatic so all you have to do before starting with your first print is to gently tap on your touch screen interface and the nozzle height would be adjusted with the print bed according to the geometry of the part or functional prototype you are willing to 3D print.
Once this is done, you are all good to go. Just spend some minutes interacting with the complete user interface so that you do not have to juggle up anywhere after starting the 3D printing procedure.
And in case you happen to find any hurdles, you can reach out to the reseller that you bought this from or the company directly.
Overall, it should not take you more than fifteen minutes to start with 3D printing your first part on Tractus 3D T1250.
As mentioned in the specifications section, the printer is based on FFF or FDM 3D printing technology.
For printing a part or functional prototype using this 3D printing technology, you need to have a filament spool of the materials you wish to 3D print.
As stated above, they are present in solid form, in the filament spool holder, like the one that is present on the head of T1250.
The temperature of any of these filament spools is raised and made to reach the glass transition temperature of the material.
After that happens, the solid filament has melted and can pass through the nozzle and reach the print bed according to the geometry of the part or functional prototype that you are willing to 3D print.
After the first layer is laid down on the print bed, the nozzle system of Tractus 3D T1250 will move upwards, against the gravity for printing the other layer.
After each and every layer’s printing is completed, it is put out either in open or subjected to cooling, and then the part or functional prototype is application-ready.
Tractus 3D T1250 offers 10 microns resolution in each and every axis of part or functional prototype printed on it.
Having stated so, different diameter nozzles are able to print parts and functional prototypes of different layer resolutions.
This quality of T1250 allows for the printing of intricate geometries even in objects that have a smaller geometry comparatively.
