The Beast's enormous build area allows users to print objects that have never before been possible on a printer with such a low price point.

Our hope is for "The Beast" to make many previously unattainable projects and prints possible and to make it accessible to as many makers, inventors, DIY enthusiasts and artists as we can.

Multiple Extruder 3D Printer.  Synchronous 3D Printing

High Speed and Simultaneous Printing or Multi Material

The Beast's ability to simultaneously print 4 identical objects or groups of objects will enable small scale manufacturing capabilities at a fraction of the cost of 4 individual 3D printers.

The Beast effectively cuts print times by 4 when printing simultaneously. 4x Synchronous printing combined with a high speed rail system and Bowden extruders means "The Beast" is capable of producing prints upwards of 10x faster than other FDM (filament type) 3D printers. The speed of printing can be increased even more by changing to a larger nozzle.

4x Printing also enables the user to print 4 of the same object/s at the same time with different colours or materials

The Beast can also be configured to print with multiple materials on a single print, allowing for different colours on a single print, or different material and nozzles sizes to be used in different parts of the print. For example: .2mm nozzle for external perimeters and 1mm nozzle for infill.

The Beast 3D Printer can print multiple items at the one time

High Resolution Prints

Taking advantage of high quality lead screws and belts, we are able to achieve positional resolutions of 0.00125mm in the Z direction (up and down) and 0.00625mm in the X and Y directions (left, right, back and forward).

The images below give you an accurate idea of the immaculate fine detail "The Beast" is capable of. These images were not manipulated.

Print in massive scale!

For those who have owned 3D printers of any kind before, we're all aware of process of splitting large prints into smaller pieces to get them to fit on the print bed. The Beast boasts and enormous 470 x 435 x 690mm build area - that's big enough to print a single child, two full size Basketballs or four Radio Control Transmitters... at the same time!

Hard Copy Documentation

As we’re all aware, one of the most painful aspects of buying a cutting edge product can be the lack of support. At Cultivate3d we're here for you all the way. From the moment you unbox your printer, you’ll appreciate the quality and time we’ve spent documenting the entire build and printing process.

We made our manual everything a great manual should be. A full colour printed manual, clearly labelled components, clear crisp images with parts references lists on every page and detailed instructions written in simple language.

We back that up with phone, live chat and email support as well as a range of online videos to help you through the process 24hrs a day.

Highly Modifiable

"The Beast" is constructed using commonly available parts, allowing for easy modification to suit the specific needs of all users. Whatever your field, we are confident the simple but highly functional design will lend itself to many different customised applications.

We also will be more than happy to provide the CAD files for the printers parts to further to facilitate the customization of the printer.

Good Value For Money

You’ll probably notice "The Beast" isn't covered with a fancy case design. We don’t want "The Beast" to be a design statement, we want "The Beast" to be the best at what it does without costing a fortune. We spent our time and money making your investment a fast, precise production printer.
