¿Qué es un prototipo?

Cuando un proyecto tiene un producto final tangible, es necesario mostrar a los patrocinadores la documentación propia de un prototipo, que es un modelo preliminar del producto final. En esta galería el creador muestra fotos y videos proporcionando al patrocinador una idea del estado del proyecto, qué se ha conseguido y qué falta por conseguir. Aunque el proceso es diferente para cada proyecto, en general se ven las siguientes fases:

Prueba de concepto

Exploraciones que comprueban la idea y su funcionalidad.

Prototipo funcional

Demuestra la funcionalidad del producto final, pero su apariencia es distinta.

Prototipo de apariencia

La apariencia del prototipo es igual a la del producto final, pero no tiene funcionalidad.

Prototipo de diseño

Es igual al producto final en apariencia y función, sin embargo, está manufacturado de manera diferente.

Prototipo de producción

Apariencia, funcionalidad y método de manufactura son iguales en prototipo y producto final.

The Beast V2 by Cultivate3D
The Beast V2 by Cultivate3D


We're really excited about this 3D printer, our second product, The Beast V2 is the culmination of 3 years R&D since the release of our V1 unit. We've listened to our users feedback and implemented countless design changes to make what we believe is the best value large format 3D Printer available anywhere. 

Our V1 unit can be found in Design Labs, Universities, Hospitals and Backyards world wide.  Our V2 unit is a massive improvement on the last model and costs the same.  We want The Beast V2 to invigorate the imagination of designers who think big, without costing big $$.  

See the full story about Dr Ezekiel Tan, Surgeon from the Gold Coast University Hospital who used The Beast V1 here

An Improved Design

Rather than tack on some new additions to our old design, we’ve taken the feedback and experience accumulated over the past 2 years and completely redesigned our large scale 3D printer from the ground up with much improved accuracy, reliability and ease of use.

Having produced thousands of the V1 model, we gained priceless experience from our customers as to where our design could be improved. Now with the benefit of this experience, “The Beast V2” is the culmination of non stop re-design, re-evaluation and 1000’s of hours of testing since the successful funding of our first model over 2 years ago.

Key Features :

  • Comparatively Inexpensive.
  • Huge Print Volume : 490x500x670mm.
  • Heated Bed Standard.
  • Layer Resolution 100 - 800 Microns.
  • Dual Material Printing Option.
  • 4x Synchronous Printing Option.
  • Fully enclosed print area, if printing with volatile filament, fumes can be ported outside.
  • SD Card and Computer Tethered Printing.
  • Build time approximately 40% of original V1 unit. (Varies depending on experience - as little as 1 day or less).
  • Filament Out Detection.
  • Auto Leveling Sensor.

Massive Build Volume

Boasting a truly massive build volume of 490x500x670, we’ve added nearly 20% volume to our build envelope over the previous V1 unit.
This means you could for example, print a whole chair in one piece, duplicate a small child, print massive sculptures or perhaps an entire Cuirass (chest armour) in once piece for your next cosplay event.

Flexible Hotend Choices

Many 3D printers use proprietary components which limit the print quality to that of the supplied hotend.
The Beast V2 is supplied with industry leading E3D Hotends, as well compatible with nearly every other hotend on the market. In the unlikely event you don’t like the Hotends we supply? Feel free to source and use your own. Chances are it’s compatible.
As well as the full range of E3D nozzles, our printer can support E3D’s new .15mm nozzles and a layer height of just .01mm for an industry leading level of detail. This is also made possible through the use of E3D Titan geared extruders (included), available in either direct drive or bowden extrusion configurations.
The method of changing hotends or hotend configurations has been refined and simplified so that it can now be done in a matter of minutes.

Next Level Bed Leveling

Levelling the print bed of any 3D printer is absolutely crucial to print success, as well as finicky and frustrating, this is amplified greatly when you are using a print bed that is 535mm2.
Thankfully, as part of one of our most significant improvements in the V2 system, we have implemented a completely new, 2 part system that involves an auto levelling sensor and an easy to adjust mechanical system that permanently links all Z axis' together. This make initial levelling as easy as possible and more importantly, it helps to ensure the bed stays level.

Wide Range Of Materials

Nearly all FDM 3D printer filaments on the market are supported!
Having a heated bed and enclosed build area means a much wider array of materials can be used with the V2 printer.

ABS, PLA, Nylon, PET, PETG, Ryno, Carbon Fibre Filled, CopperFill, Ninjaflex, NylonX, ASA, PP, TPE, PCTPE, TPU, Soft PLA, Laybrick, Woodfill, Conductive, CeramicFill, Proto Pasta Stainless and Steelfill, Magentic Iron PLA, Polycarbonate, Bendlay, Moldlay, Continuous Fibre, PVA, HIPS, LayaPVA and more..


This list is not exhaustive, new materials are continually being release, most are made with E3D hotends and nozzles in mind (supplied as standard with the Beast V2).

The number of filament types supported are as diverse as your imagination.
The number of filament types supported are as diverse as your imagination.

True Multi Material Printing

The Beast v2 features dual-extrusion technology, capable of MULTI-COLOUR or MULTI-MATERIAL printing.

Applications include:
Dual colour printing - Demonstrative and aesthetically pleasing product models, it is possible even to use transparent and opaque materials on the same object

Multi Material - Uniquely functional objects through the use of dissimilar materials e.g. rigid and flexible materials combined to create flexible joints

Support Material - Print previously impossible designs with the use of WATER SOLUBLE support materials.

The Beast v2 also has the ability to use 4 hotends and extruders to replicate 4 of the same print jobs (one object or a whole set of objects) at the same time, effectively reducing print and production time by 300%. It is also possible to use different colours and materials on each of the extruders in this configuration.

Optimized Part Cooling

Newly implemented radial fans and custom ducts ensures better cooling, high quality bridges, sharp edges and improved surface finish.
Effective cooling is also extremely beneficial when increasing print speeds and flow rates.

Official Simplify 3D Support

We now officially support Simplify3D. We have optimized profiles for a variety of configurations and application, with detailed information on customisation.
Simplify3D offers a superior build quality to many of the open source slicers available. Simplify3D is also the only slicer we've tested to work well with very large nozzle sizes such as those used with the E3D Volcano.
 The Beast v2 is also still compatible with all the open source slicers, Slic3r, Cura etc. Along with alternative paid options.

Enclosed Build Area For Greater Reliability and Cleaner Working Environment

The Beast v2 a full enclosure with port for standard 100mm (4 inch) ducting.
Enclosing the build area results in a much more stable temperature through the duration of long prints and helps to improve print quality and eliminate artifacts caused by temperature variation and unwanted airflow. The ducting option is perfect for use in situations where the printer is installed in an office or any indoor environment where the molten plastic fumes need to be removed.

Easier and Faster Build

The V2 unit has been designed with ease of build high on the list of priorities.
At around 50% of the original V1 build time, you can be up and printing with the V2 in as little as one day.
Prioritizing simplicity with much fewer components and joints, has the added advantage of creating a structure which is more solid and accurate, requiring less maintenance, increased reliably and reduced down time. We have also simplified the wiring to an enormous degree, with custom cables and looms, all components now simply plug into one and other or use a screw terminal.

Super Fine Detail

At .05mm layer height, you cant see layers with the naked eye. Surfaces are smooth to touch and slightly matt in appearance.
Our printer can print solid objects right down to .01mm. Just how fine (or coarse) you set the layer height is entirely up to you.
Because our printer utilises 3rd party, non proprietary slicing software such as Simplify3D and Slic3r, layer heights are infinitely adjustable to suit your needs.

Detailed Build Manual

We haven't yet finished writing the build manual for the V2 unit, but we can say the new manual will be detailed and full of clear pictures. The Beast V2 is much easier to assemble with much fewer parts so we expect the new manual won't have as many pages as the previous  If you'd like to see what our previous manual looked like, you can download it here : The Beast V1.2 Build Manual

What Do I Need?

The Beast V2 Comes with absolutely everything required to build a fully functional single hotend printer. Additional hotends will be required in order to take advantage of Synchronous printing or Multi-material Printing. Build time varies depending on your level of experience with Kits and 3D Printers. As little as 12hrs can be required to start printing. More for those who have little 3D Printing experience.

Skype and Phone Customer Service

As easy as we try to make it, building a 3D Printer sometimes isn't easy, especially if you're not familiar with the process. We encourage our customers to call us on the phone or skype if they have problems during the build. We're happy to answer questions via email, however experience tells us our customers get much more out of a one on one chat via skype than can be achieved via countless emails.   Our Skype and Phone line will be available 9am-5pm AEST.

About us

Industrial engineers and programmers Josh and Dan met in 2015 and quickly became friends due to their common, but individual projects, each to make a large 3D Printer.  

Dans direction was to make a 2m tall Delta Printer, Josh's a cartesian printer which would later become known as "The Beast". This union eventually became known as Cultivate3D.  

Dan's background is in IT. Josh's background is in Mechanical Engineering.    

Lastly from Dan and Josh

"We've put our heart and soul into this printer. The Beast V2 is the culmination of countless ideas, arguments and solutions based on our experience with the previous model. This printer is our passion, it's everything we've been thinking about for the past 3 years. We hope this printer provides as much opportunity to evolve your ideas as it has ours and look forward to seeing pictures of all the crazy contraptions our clients come up with".

Riesgos y desafíos

Over the last 3 years, we have repeatedly encountered many risks and challenges related to managing and operating a tech development and manufacturing startup.
We have learned many valuable lessons from past mistakes.
We have become quite adept at dealing with a plethora of common issues and we are also ready and willing to adapt to any new challenges that may arise.

As we've learned from our past Kickstarter campaign and other product launches, the most likely risk is that of a delayed delivery date.
To avoid production delays we have already began building our inventory and implementing new manufacturing systems in advance of this Kickstarter campaign launch.

We are always striving to improve our systems and process' and to provide our customers with an ever-improving product.

In addition, the development cycle of this new version of the machine has been much longer and we have been able to refine the new design to a much greater level.
This will help to ensure that we do not encounter any delays due to design modifications.

We commit to providing open and consistent communication throughout the Kickstarter process and for the lifetime of the product.
