Tractus 3D claims how T850P is the best high-temperature 3D printer they have to offer in their PRO series! 114 cm high, T850 P manages to fit into your desk.
What is so unique about this desktop 3D printer that makes it print-ready even for rare materials like PEEK and ULTEM? This is a question that we will expose you to, in this in-depth 3D printer review.
We will start our journey with features that separate T850 P from other 3D printers in the same price range.
Heated Chamber: The temperature inside T850 P can be controlled easily using this innovative heated chamber which is fitted inside the printer. This will allow you to print using various 3D printer filaments. The thermal management done inside the printer will help reduce warping on parts and functional prototypes as it diminishes premature cooling by open air. This chamber allows you to set the temperature at the required level up to 65 degrees Celsius.
Huge Build Volume: The maximum build area offered by Tractus T850 P is 280 mm * 400 mm (diameter * height). This makes the printer extremely useful for prototyping and small-batch production. Instead of manufacturing a single part or functional prototype in different parts and then assembling them, you can manufacture it in one go. This increases production time which is extremely useful.
Can withstand temperature up to 450 degrees Celsius: The printer’s high-temperature nozzle can go up to 450 degrees Celsius, whereas the build plate can go up to 175 degrees Celsius! Tractus 3D T850 P lets you create parts and functional prototypes with superior 3D printer filaments such as Carbon PEEK, PEEKQ, and ULTEM. It is rare to find a printer in the same price range to offer such high build volume and also allow you to print with such rare 3D printing materials. At the same time, conventional 3D printing materials like PLA and PETG are also a part of the long list of materials that the printer allows you to 3D print.
Automatic bed leveling: Before or after 3D printing a part or functional prototype, even while starting your first 3D print, you would have to open the screws of the printer’s axis side construction and level the print bed according to your part’s geometry. It will automatically get synced and adjust itself according to the part or functional prototype’s geometry. This will not only save you time on the overall print process but also give you the amount of precision needed while laying down the first layer of part or functional prototype that you are manufacturing.
Based on Fused Filament Fabrication or Fused Deposition Modeling 3D printing technology, Tractus 3D T850 P offers a building width of 280 mm, build height of 400 mm.
It can print with a print speed of 450 millimeters per second. Every part or functional prototype that’s built on this 3D printer has an X, Y, and Z resolution of 10, 10, and 10 microns respectively.
The layer resolution ranges offered by various 3D printer nozzle that can print a part or functional prototypes on this printer is as follows.
- 0.4 mm nozzle offers a layer resolution range starting from 10 microns to 300 microns.
- 0.6 mm nozzle offers a layer resolution range starting from 10 microns to 450 microns.
- 0.8 mm nozzle offers a layer resolution range starting from 10 microns to 600 microns.
- 1.0 mm nozzle offers a layer resolution range starting from 50 microns to 800 microns.
The operating sound produced by Tractus 3D T850 P is somewhere around 80 decibels. This printer consumes 3100 Watts of power. It can be connected to using a Local Area Network.
There is a seven inches long color touch screen interface on the body of this printer that lets you manage as well as control this 3D printer.
This touch screen interface supports four languages namely, English, Dutch, French, and German.
For heating a 3D printing material to its glass transition temperature, you have an actively heated chamber inside the printer that takes the printer anywhere from zero to sixty degrees Celsius. And can resist up to eighty degrees Celsius temperature.
The build plate is made up of heated glass and stays in between the temperature range of ten to hundred and seventy-five degrees Celsius.
The printer is equipped with an automatic bed leveler. It takes less than two minutes for the build plate to rise from 20 degrees Celsius temperature to sixty degrees Celsius temperature.
You can print on Tractus 3D T850 P using PEEK, PEI, PLA, PRO1, PET-G, ABS, ASA, Facilan C8, TPU/TPE, Nylon, PC, and Fillers. All of these materials should have a filament diameter of 1.75 mm.

Tractus 3D T850 P has a unique design compared to the 3D printers that offer a bigger build volume than what it has to offer.
Although the overall shape of this 3D printer remains rectangle, the difference in the placement of the filament spool holder.
You may even find spool holders open, without any covering on the majority of desktop 3D printers. But this one has a cover over them as well.
Tractus is a company that is only to making of 3D printers that have a Delta-style construction. So, when you look inside the print chamber, you find three pillars connected with each other, forming a triangle.
These three pillars provide the necessary support and movement to the nozzle system of this printer to move up and down.
There are rails installed in these three pillars, which allow the nozzle system to do so.
The printer comes completely assembled. All you have to do is unwrap it from the box in which it is shipped at your place.
Read the manual with which it arrives to know about the functionality of each and every part that the printer is made up of.
Try getting familiar with the touch screen interface. Auto level the bed of Tractus 3D T850 P before starting to print your first part or functional prototype on this 3D printer!
Load the filament spool holder with any of the 3D printing materials you wish to 3D print. Slice the 3D design file in Simplify 3D slicing software and that’s all, you are good to go.
FDM/FFF 3D printing technology is the most commonly employed one that you will encounter on most 3D printers.
It creates a part or functional prototype by taking a solid 3D printing material in a filament, heats it till glass transition temperature is achieved, and fuse it together in a pattern that is required in the resulting part or functional prototype.
After the first layer is laid down on the print bed, the nozzle system moves one layer above it and prints the other layer.
The printing cost per part on Tractus 3D T850 P depends on various factors starting with the 3D printing material that you are using.
Followed by the geometry of the part or functional prototype that you are willing to manufacture, the level of infill you are planning to have in that part or functional prototype, are there any support structures needed in the printing process, etc.
As mentioned in the specifications section of this article, there is a huge layer resolution range that you can print your part or functional prototype in; using this 3D printer.
You need to classify the range of resolution range, based on which you need to take the filament diameter. There are 0.4 mm, 0.6 mm, 0.8 mm, and 1 mm.
Overall the layer resolution range offered by Tractus 3D T850 P is from 10 microns to 800 microns.
The printer as well as the parts and functional prototypes have such a quality that they have found an application in Healthcare, Manufacturing, Education, and Automotive industries.
