About this item
Our iFactory One is a great printer by design. From Makers all the way to large print farms at well-known companies, our customers are very happy with the quality of the printer.
But as with any device and given its origin on Kickstarter, we are still working to improve it. To get the last percentages of quality and quantity out of the iFactory One, we’ve packed together all the upgrades we feel are just right to bring the iFactory One to its peak performance:
• CNC-made BMG Direct Drive extruder with hardened gears
• Titanium full metal heatbreak
• High quality volcano hotend with 0.4mm nozzle
If you want your iFactory One to perform even better, save even more time and money you should check out our Upgrade Kit!
Direct Drive Extruder + Volcano Hotend
Both the extruder and the hotend are among the most important parts of a 3D printer. The standard hotend and extruder that come with the iFactory One are good for reliable printing, but their thermal capacity and also extrusion rate are limited. These limitations are the reason why we use a combination of Direct Drive extruder and Hotend. You will not be limited by the thermal capacity of the hotend or the extrusion rate, so you can print any material as fast as you want to maximize your printing performance. The maximum temperature of the hotend is up to 300°C so you can melt most of the filaments available. It also does reduce stringing. Don’t be bound by limitations anymore!
Genuine MEAN WELL power supply
For the power supply we opted for the most well-known brand for 3d printer power supplies: MEAN WELL. All PSUs that are sold by us are 100% genuine MEAN WELL power supplies!
Low radiation values – With the regulations of most power grids around the world, you are sometimes forced to accept higher radiation, ripple and noise. The new MEAN WELL power supply delivers radiation-, ripple- and interference-free power.
Reliable voltage – Sometimes the power grid delivers very noisy electrical current. The MEAN WELL power supply will smooth out the current spikes and deliver a steady current to the printer.
Quiet, long-lasting fan – The built-in fan in the MEAN WELL power supply does not start spinning until the power supply reaches a certain temperature. At this point, the fan is not loud, but will still move a lot of air through the power supply to cool it down sufficiently.

Important note: You need to print some parts before replacing your old extruder with the Direct Drive Extruder and Volcano Hotend combination! You can download the .stl files in our download section.
Parts not included in this kit are:
– Hotend fan
– Part cooling fan
– Stepper motor
– Cable chain
– Mounting plate
Attention! Before you start printing with the new Direct Drive Extruder and Volcano Hotend, you must recalibrate your nozzle height. Not doing a recalibration will result in a head crash which can damage your printer and also will void the warranty.
