Jump to: navigation, search

Hyrel Printers are available in the following models: Hydras are our larger, gantry models; Systems are our tabletop, enclosed models; and Engines are the smaller, unenclosed models - available in Standard Resolution (SR) and High Resolution (HR, for bioprinting) versions.

All models use our Repetrel software and any slicer (Slic3r support provided). Each model comes with a Windows PC, either tablet or full desktop style. We operate our print heads via CANbus.

Power Requirements

The Hydra 21 requires 8 A / 208-240 VAC (single phase) / 50-60 Hz.

The 30M, EHR, and ESR each can be plugged into 15 A / 110-120 VAC / 60 Hz OR 8 A / 208-240 VAC (single phase) / 50 Hz. The power supplies are auto-detecting and auto-switching.

Customers outside of North America will have to provide their own power cord with an IEC connection to the printer.

Customers in North America may have to modify or replace the power cord to fit their organization's provided outlet.
