Random layer shifts can happen due to stepper motors skipping steps sometimes unexpectedly. Just imagine the failed project, the material loss, the time loss, the missed deadline, unhappy customer, mounting frustration and pressure…
To prevent the random layer shift, we’ve developed and installed an LSP (layer shift prevention) electro-mechanical system on every single 2x2 printer, using a closed loop motor configuration. This is a standard feature, not an add-on. We value our users’ time as our own time. Our users deserve the best.
this video demo was shot using a 2x4 printer to show more details. Model 2x2’s LSP feature functions the same as the 2x4 printer.
Thanks to its min thermal expansion, the aerospace grade carbon fiber hot bed on MAKEiT2x2 has the best part-to-bed adhesion on such a large scale. This bed heats up to 230F /110C. Bed leveling and calibration is 100% done for you automatically, just a simple click of a button on the interface, no more twisting screws.
MAKEiT2x2’s powerful extrusion system has a heating capacity of up to 360C/680F.
Tungsten Carbide nozzle prints exceptionally well with abrasive materials, besides regular filaments. Simply change filament type, no more hustle with switching nozzles.
A 0.9mm Tungsten Carbide nozzle is the factory default.
No worry about filament run-out! Built-in filament movement sensor enables print pause when filament runs out during printing. Once filament is refilled, your printer will go back and continue printing.
The filament movement sensor can also tell if the filament is tangled at the spool end, or the nozzle is too close to the carbon fiber bed. If either happens, printhead will pause the printing, park to the side, waiting for the user to intervene.
No more manually adjusting filament tension. It is set! Every print is extruded with the right amount of filament, leading to top print quality.
Smart filament travel management system enables smooth filament travel, no tangle, no breaks.
We have designed MAKEiT large format 3D printers to specialize in 3d printing PA6GF (Glass Fiber Nylon), and PA6CF (Carbon Fiber Nylon) filaments. These filaments are industrial grade material, stiff and strong, yet lightweight. They are high heat resistant. PA6CF has 20% carbon fiber; and PA6GF has 25% glass fiber in the blend. We regularly print these materials at 300C. Numerous car body plugs have been 3D printed out of PA6GF filaments. Some PA6CF parts have been installed on race car bodies. These materials are the best material to make car plugs, master molds, or end use parts. You can sand them freely with a power sander, unlike PLA, they don't melt, nor deform. They are durable, lightweight, stiff, strong, work with body fillers and epoxies too.
Each printer comes with an onboard filament dry box. It is a feature designed for keeping your filament dry during the entire printing process. This is a must-have to ensure good quality print when we print nylon carbon fiber or nylon glass fiber filaments. The digital reader on the box shows the current humidity and temperature inside the box.
Do you have a smartphone? You will be able to see MAKEiT2x2 printing in action on your smartphone/tablet/computer locally/remotely, thanks to an on-board webcam and RaspberryPi. Literally, you can show what's printing back in your office while visiting your customer's site. They will be amazed at what you can do, you will get more respect and more business from them.
Are you familiar with Octoprint? For your convenience, customized Octoprint interface is pre-installed on the on-board Raspberry Pi. We have modified major Octoprint functions, and made it as simple and functional as possible, to fit MAKEiT owner's needs. For example, "bed calibration" function is just a click of the button. "Z Height, or nozzle-to-bed-distance" is part of on-the-fly adjustments that can be done real time if needed while you start the first layer printing. This way you can dial in the right distance for your print before saving that info. Since Octoprint is an open source interface, you are more than welcome to add your own flavor once you are familiar with MAKEiT printers.
The advantage of keeping the control unit outside is two folds:
Built-in enclosure structure enhances print quality
Sitting on 4 wheels, your printer can be easily moved through a 3ft door way
Red Emergency Stop Button enables a user to stop printing immediately. Print can be resumed without interruption once this button is released.
Tested print profiles shared with users to ensure an easy and fast onboard process
Fast print processing powered by 32bit controller
Simple and easy maintenance thanks to the modular builds.
Durable build with top quality parts from reputable suppliers: Hiwin rails; Cicoil flexible silicone cables, etc.
Powered by US regular wall outlet: line breaker 20A / 120V / 60Hz, no need for extra electricity arrangement
Your right-to-fix will not void printer’s factory warranty if you choose to fix minor issues
MAKEiT2x2 printer specializes in printing high temp industrial grade PA6GF Nylon Glass Fiber and PA6CF Nylon Carbon Fiber materials with high resolution. “the following video clips demonstrate 3d printing with 3 different materials: carbon fiber nylon, PLA and flexible TPU.

The specialty of MAKEiT printers is to 3d print PA6GF (Nylon glass fiber), and PA6CF (nylon carbon fiber) filaments. We have been working closely with auto customs shops 3d printing large panels like grills, front bumpers, fenders, hoods, skirts, wings, etc. with PA6GF. Some PA6CF parts have been installed on race car bodies. These materials are the best material to make car plugs, master molds, or end-user parts. You can sand them freely with a power sander. Unlike PLA, they don't melt, nor deform. It is lightweight, stiff and strong, works with body fillers and epoxies too.
Greg Tada is a well-known motorcycle designer. In his spare time, he wants to experiment with 3D Printing, to create a new process, to simplify the steps from concept design on a napkin to something real that can be sit on…
"I have used the MAKEiT 2x4 3D printer for a few years now. It is a capable and reliable printer. Having a large format printer is a game changer. Things that I would have never considered for 3d printing before are now just simple tasks. I no longer need to glue smaller prints together. That saves time, labor and aggravation. It also eliminates the need for secondary machining to correct misalignment and eliminate parting lines. I really like the ability to print multiple materials. It makes it very flexible especially when I have certain design criteria to meet. The 2x4 certainly opens up different opportunities that you normally would not have with a smaller 3D printer.
One of the benefits of working with MAKEiT is that they are the manufacturer. They touch and work on each and every printer. It is not designed here, made there. They have the knowledge pertaining to their products. I can call and get a real person on the other end of the line. Their support is extraordinary. They truly stand behind their reputation as a quality manufacturer. When you buy a product from them, it is not just a purchase, it is more like a partnership. I definitely recommend MAKEiT any of your 3D printing needs."

"The MAKEiT team has been excellent to work with. They support their printers when needed and the user group consists of top-notch individuals. I am very pleased with the quality of components used in the 2X4 printer. My company, “Additive Ai” successfully 3D scans – Designs – and Prints full size car components with a MAKEiT 2X4 Printer."
"MAKEiT 3D printers are the literal workhorse of the 3D printing community, I have had 2 of them running 24/7 for the last 3 months.
When I was tasked to 3D print a 4ft manifold system, the initial solution was to break the model into 9 individual parts and glue them all together. Dissatisfied with this approach I went on a search for a 3D printer that could handle the print volume we required to print this part as one solid piece.
Once I found the 2x4 large format printer I knew this was going to be the machine for the job.
From my 5 years of 3D printing experience, I knew multi day prints in large formats had the potential to layer shift at any moment, which could ruin a project timeline when the piece is a 9-day print. Fortunately the 2x4 printer was designed specifically for this type of application.
Using a closed-loop system on the motors that control the print axis, layer shifting is a thing of the past, AN ABSOLUTE GAME CHANGER!! I was blown away when I saw the video of the print gantry snapping back to its position whenever the operator would drag it from its current print path. You just have to see it to understand how awesome that is.
The build is absolutely beautiful, utilizing premium Japanese extruded aluminum, high-end hot end, aerospace-grade cables, and a full carbon fiber heated bed.
I looked through lots of printers for this project and this one was above all others and about half the price of other printers with similar print volumes.
Although the printer is truly in its own class, the staff at MAKEiT, Inc. are the true reason you should be buying this brand. Shelley and Salomo are always there ready to help with anything print profile-related and have come out to my office multiple times to help me troubleshoot issues. It is awesome to learn about the printer directly from the person who designed it. Learned a lot about how they continue to improve the product to ensure the best user experience. Salomo is a true genius in his field. Give them a call, BUY A PRINTER, you will not regret it. Perfect for any company that is expanding their R&D facility or makers who are looking to scale their project capabilities for more business opportunities."
Former Mechanical Engineer at Grow Glide
Owner of 3D Scan OC
"I used to 3D print large composite plugs in many, many small puzzle pieces to then spend hours joining together and furthermore sanding the seams between them. This process of printing multiple smaller pieces to make a large part was growing old. Furthermore, the lack of capabilities and reliability of my smaller 3D printers made projects take a lot longer to complete. It was becoming a roll of the dice as to whether or not deadlines could be met.
Thus my search for a large format 3D printer began.
When it came to large format 3D printers, there were few options available. It was very easy to find yourself receiving quotes for complicated 3D printers that started at $50,000 or MORE! There were some poorly designed and equipped DIY options (Modix) that initially seemed like something I would’ve unfortunately had to settle for but thankfully I found MAKEiT. The 2x4 large format 3D printer is something I can leave running on its own for DAYS without any worries. I’m printing so many of my plugs for composite mold making in one piece and dramatically cutting down the time it takes to get something to market. Additionally, I’m able to print so many automotive parts in a single go. My favorite thing about the 2x4 is that it can do all of this with any of the materials I throw at it thanks to the super capable print head. I VERY reguallary print nylon PA6-GF for so many of my large parts without a single worry of a dreaded print failure.
Thanks to MAKEiT, I can promise my customers that not only do I have the capability of taking on their large 3D print jobs but most importantly that deadlines WILL be met thanks to the trust I have in my 2x4 3D printer."
