The biggest print volume on the market

The bq Witbox boasts the biggest print volume on the domestic-printer market, with a DIN-A4 (21 x 29.7 cm) print area offering up to 20 cm in height. This allows the Witbox to print large-scale objects or multiple parts at the same time, all at a rate unrivalled by any other printer.

3D printing of spectacular quality

Several factors affect the quality of 3D printing. One of them is the height of each layer: the lower the height, the better the level of detail and resolution of the object that is printed. It is also very important for the printing base to be as level as possible. A toughened, laminated* glass base is incorporated in Witbox.

* For optimum printing, is necessary spraying lacquer on the base before beginning to print.

Where beauty and safety combine

The bq Witbox has been painstakingly designed to optimise its functionality. It’s a fully enclosed printer with a locking front door system, which prevents accidental access during printing and makes it a particularly safe device to use in environments where children may be present. Its fully enclosed design helps minimise noise, while preventing heat from escaping and controlling airflow - thereby maintaining a constant temperature inside the printer.

A totally innovative printing system

The bq Witbox incorporates an innovative printing system inspired by the Fibonacci spiral, using a PTFE tube to feed the filament through. Thanks to this design, for which the patent is pending, the feeder system remains fully inside the printer unit and reduces the amount of contact between the filament and the tube. This optimised design, combined with the Witbox’s reinforced chassis, allows you to create a network of printers by stacking up to three bq Witboxes one on top of the other.

Made by us in Spain

We manufacture the bq Witbox at our own factory in Navarra, Spain, which is dedicated exclusively to the design and production of our printers. Because we make our own products, we’re able to enforce the very strictest quality controls, and we also apply our exacting standards to our consumables, for which we have a dedicated production line in the Spanish town of Huesca.

Option of stacking and linking up to three printers one on top of the other, avoiding the need for additional shelving.
The system is inspired by the Fibonacci spiral, with a PTFE tube for threading the filament.
This innovative system means the filament feeder tubes remain fully inside the machine, giving the device greater aesthetic appeal and ensuring friction is kept to a minimum. We recommend you only stack a maximum of three Witbox printers.

* For optimum printing, is necessary spraying lacquer on the base before beginning to print.
