  • Dragon Hotend (Phaetus or Tringlelabs + Highflow or standard flow) - can be selected as option within the ordering process.
  • Orbiter 1.5 or 2.0 drive incl. LDO stepper motor
  • 40-50W heater cartridge
  • Thermocoupler (temp sensor)
  • 40mm cooling fan (4020) - optional maybe 4010 later.
  • Part blower similar to Qidi stock one
  • New 3D firmware configuration (for motor directions, leveling points and build volume)
  • Plated Copper nozzle 0.4mm - can easily be changed by yourself
  • Connection PCB with connectors for Fans, Extruder and Sensor
  • Fanduct and Dragonholder in PC-FR, Carriage, Beltpegs in PC (CF or FR)

Main differences to Ikarus version I:

  • A universal carriage for all supported printers, regardless of extruder and hotend. Instead, you print a mount for your chosen extruder and hotend that install with just four screws meaning you can quickly swap to another extruder and hotend while still using the same carriage, improved maintenance.
  • Hotend fan upgraded from 4010 to 4020 - improved cooling performance and lower noise level (4010 fan is still supported with optional printed distances).
  • The belt teeth are now on the belt peg and tensioner instead of the actual carriage.
  • Option to use belt tensioner
  • Support for the new wider Qidi PCB supplied with some printers.
  • Increased blower fan stability.

IMate users: Please check the limitation that might impact you. Bearing size, Closed/open belt and potential small impact on your build volume.
