Last month we unveiled the new generation of BCN3D printers, the Sigma & Sigmax R19, characterized by a renewed extrusion system that ensures the highest printing performance and a refined UX & GUI, which provide a smoother and more intuitive operation of the printer. Today we release the upgrade kits to R19, enabling any BCN3D user to turn their printer into a new one.

With the intention of bringing all these new improvements to the customers that already own a Sigma or a Sigmax, we have designed the new R19 enhancements in order to be able to be offered also as an upgrade kit. Therefore, any owner of an Original or R17 Sigma have the possibility to update their machine with the new features incorporated into the Sigma R19 thanks to the Upgrade Kit to Sigma R19. The same for those users of an Original BCN3D Sigmax, they are able to upgrade their printer with the Upgrade Kit to Sigmax R19.

“BCN3D has always looked after its customers. We acknowledge 3D Printing is a growing industry and the technology and the quality it delivers is evolving so fast. Therefore, besides improving the performance and reliability of our products, we’ve taken into account our previous customers’ needs in order to propose them a full enhancement kit.” states Eric Pallarés, BCN3D Technologies CTO.

The easy-to-install upgrade kit will provide your BCN3D printer with the latest R19 features:

· e3D™ hotends: The newest version of the BCN3D hotends has been optimized by the global specialist e3D. Thanks to the superb e3D’s machining and engineering know-how, which ensure the highest quality standards, the hotends provide a smooth and reliable extrusion under different printing environments.
· Filament Runout sensor: A mechanical switch to detect filament presence, allowing to prevent from one of the most common and frustrating failure reasons. In case of running out of filament during a print job, the printer will automatically pause and warn the user to load new filament to resume the print, letting to save time and money.
· New graphic user interface: The refined R19 GUI and UX include new informative screens, maintenance recommendations and guided assistants, as well as access to advanced printing settings.
· Dual gear feeder by Bondtech™: New extruder made with aluminum CNC machined body and hardened steel drive gears powered by Bondtech. An incredible grip is provided thanks to its high-tech dual drive gears, that have proven to be the best feeding extrusion system, getting rid of grinding issues, no matter the filament used. These components are only included on the Sigma upgrade kit due to all Sigmax versions already carry Bondtech extruders.

    Any idear what it cost?

  2. Having upgraded to the Bondtech dual drive system some time ago, I can attest how positively that mechanism works. I have yet to install the previously purchased stepper drivers but have a full rack of them awaiting my attention. I’m not particularly in need of replacement or accessory hot ends and that leaves only the filament detection gear.

    Is it possible to purchase only the components which make that aspect of the system function? I checked the web links but it appears that it is for full bundle purchase, while I’d only need a pair of the gadgets.

  3. This is a clear demonstration about how to properly take care of previous users. Well done BCN3D team! I have a Sigma R17 and now I will be able to upgrade it to a R19! Thank you!

  5. Hola,
