Hydra 21

THE HYDRA 21 – The Benchtop Workhorse

High Reliability - Low Maintenance - High Uptime - Heated Enclosure - Large Volume

  • The Hydra 21 has a 300x400mm (optionally 400x500mm) bed, heated to 120C (optionally 200C).
  • The enclosed build environment can be heated by the hotbed, and the filament storage protects your build and material from outside environmental changes
  • The Hydra 21 printers work with all Hyrel print heads, allowing you to work with numerous materials, including store-bought or home-made filaments, clays, pastes, hydrogels, photo-initiators, and cementitious materials
  • Designed with safety in mind
  • Rugged, all-metal design
  • Includes interchangeable mounting system
  • Plug-and-play modular heads
  • Ready for upgrade/expansion options
  • Compatible with large volume extruders
  • Optional 200C hotbed (larger than 300x400mm requires 208 or 220VAC)
  • Optional 3-Phase Spindle Tool
  • Optional Chilled and/or Vacuum Beds
  • Hydra 21: 250mm Z, with the following bed options:
    • Bed 43W is 400×300, 120°C
    • Bed 43H is 400×300, 200°C
    • Bed 54W is 600×400, 120°C
    • Bed 54H is 600×400, 200°C

Note, Hydra 21 models all come with a 300x300mm magnetic plate and a 300x300mm PEI-powder-coated spring-steel build surface. Printing on the larger heated bed area will require you to remove the magnetic plate and add 12mm of glass or other build surface.
