The World’s First Adjustable Resolution Print Head!
The Story Behind
Our names are Peter Mann and Nick McGibbon and we are creators of the xHead extruder
The xHead was designed to address specific problems associated with 3d printing. Namely, the hassle of fixed resolutions, head cleaning, clogged nozzles and messy tape on the heater block.
Rather then waste time complaining, we simply decided to solve the issues we raised. From the initial concept to the first prototype, the xHead surpassed both our expectations. We were so happy with the results, we immediately filed a provisional patent for our invention.
