Is the Funmat HT all fun and games or is it straight to business when it comes to printing tricky PEEK filament? Read our review of this 3D printer's specs to find out.

Intamsys Funmat HT 3D Printer – Review the Specs

When it comes to printing with temperamental filaments like PEEK, the Funmat HT checks off all the essential boxes — and for an exceptional price.

The cleverly designed and solidly built machine was created by Intamsys — an abbreviation of INTelligent Additive Manufacturing SYStems — a 3D printer manufacturer based in Shanghai. And unlike most of its more established competitors, which have pricier machines, the Funmat HT checks in at a relatively reasonable $6,000.

This machine offers a lot of handy design features as well as essential tools which should ensure successful printing with engineering grade materials like PEEK, PEI, PPSU, and ULTEM. However, it does lack some of the fancier workflow features like a built-in camera to monitor prints, print queuing and WiFi connectivity.

We haven’t had a chance to review this high-performance 3D printer yet, but we’ve pored over its specs to see whether it’s worth your money. Read on to find out what we make of the Funmat HT.

Intamsys Funmat HT - Review the Specs Features

Printing in PEEK is a persnickety business — and it’s a business that’s been largely dominated by established industrial 3D printing manufacturers like AON3D and Stratasys. But companies like Intamsys are trying to change that by producing sturdily built printers boasting impressive specs — all for less money than their older, more well-known competitors.

All-metal hotend

This all-metal hotend can heat up to a whopping 450°C, an important feature when it comes to printing engineering-grade materials like PEEK, ULTEM, etc.

Fully enclosed chamber

To try and ensure all the layers stick together and the print completes without a hitch, the chamber is fully enclosed and insulated. It also has two heaters, which should keep the temperature at 90°C evenly and consistently throughout the enclosure.

Heated bed

Curling, warping and layer separation will hopefully not be a concern due to a heated bed that gets nice and toasty at 160° C. The Funmat HT also has a magnetic print bed that snaps on and off to make it easier to remove prints.

Filament chamber and detection

When printing with expensive and temperamental filaments, it’s essential to keep them moisture-free. The Funmat HT comes with a separate filament chamber to try to protect those precious materials from any water molecules in the air.

It also offers filament absence warning and will let you know when filament is running low or has run out so you can replace it and carry on with your print.

Touchscreen

This touchscreen, which is in itself handy, goes a step further by remaining functional even when using heatproof gloves — particularly useful when it comes to preventing accidental burns.

Backup power supply unit

An essential feature for any industrial-grade machine is a backup power tool so when the lights go down, your print doesn’t have to go with it. Intamsys says this printer will save your print before powering down and moving the extruder to a neutral position. When the power is back up, it will resume the print and carry on like nothing bad happened.
