X400 vs Funmat HT Printer Comparison
The Funmat HT Enhanced was groundbreaking for its time. However, its feature set has fallen behind the competition as of late.
Automatic bed leveling is limited to 3 touch points on the plane, with a highly finicky and unreliable mechanical switch. The 3D Labs X400 with its BL Touch hall sensor is far more accurate with 256-point mesh leveling.
Utilizing dual materials, breakaway high-temperature support material, or even soluble supports is impossible on the Funmat HT's single extruder without paying for an external device.
The Funmat HT's firmware is based on open-source Marlin, yet the company refuses to release the source code per the GPL license. For this reason, the Funmat will have difficulty being used in any DoD or aerospace applications that require any kind of serious certifications.
The bed in the Funmat HT is roughly 1/8" thick, hardly enough to prevent sagging edges at high temperatures resulting in difficult headaches trying to perfect your first layer. The X400's patent-pending cast tooling plate .25" thick bed is as flat as they come, even at extreme temperatures exceeding 215C.
At only $500 less than the X400, the Chinese-made Funmat can't compare to the X400's value add for your business.Note: All images, logos, trademarks and any other information on this page are the property of their respective owners and are used solely for identification purposes on this page.
