Looking for a new Binder Jetting 3D printer that you can use for your project or 3D printing business? Then you might want to check this Addwii X1 3D printer with patented full-color inkjet head. The creator of this ultra-low-cost binder-jetting 3D machine is a Taiwan-based company founded in 2011.
The market of 3D printing and 3D scanning continuously grow that’s why you can see a sudden price drop for other 3D printing machines, equipment, 3D scanner from other manufacturers and suppliers that were launched a few months ago. They need to cut their prices for them to compete with the growing competition.
I’ve been checking on the prices of 3D equipment several months ago, and I’ve noticed that it is really expensive and majority of the 3D enthusiasts opt to buy a Chinese brand to get started with their project.
I didn’t say that Chinese 3D printers have poor quality; actually there are several Chinese brands of 3D machines that I’ve reviewed here in my blog and by judging on their build quality, they are really worth for every penny that you will spend.
Addwii understand this situation, especially for small businesses who can’t afford to buy those machines for large scale usage, that’s why they have released the X1 for $12,300 which can be pre-order directly from their website.
Here are the core features of the X1 Binder-Jetting 3D printer:
- Printer Size: 800 x 620 x 700 mm
- Print Speed 42mm/hour Vertically
- Color Print Resolution: 1200 x 554 dpi
- Number of Nozzles: 2
- Build Envelope: 200 x 160 x 150 mm

Lastly, the Addwii X1 has an optional partner called DP1. It is a machine that works with conjunction with the X1, responsible for efficient cleaning of your 3D prints using a powder recovery system.
