The FLSUN QQ-S 3D printer is an upgraded version of its predecessor – the QQ. Join us as we dive headfirst into the specs and review all we know about this 3D printer.
First and foremost, FLSUN promotes the QQ-S’ new Lattice Plattform, supposedly a high-strength lattice composite coating, which allows for fast heating and less warping, as well as providing a strong adhesion during the print and to be easily taken off, once the print is completed and the bed is cooled. This strongly reminds us of the Anycubic Ultrabase. The appeal of a high-tech glass bed is very clear. By releasing prints as it simply cools off, there should be no more need for scrapers, hairspray, glue sticks and the mess they make when using them.
According to the manufacturer, the printing bed reaches up to 100 °C in less than 5 minutes, allowing for the most common filaments to be used without any problems.
As it is a Delta printer, and therefore has a fixed – nonmoving – printing bed, it only needs to be auto-leveled once, making it especially feasible for beginners.
Another novelty FLSUN promotes for the new QQ-S is the Titan Extruder. At first glance, the extruder looks like the E3D Titan Extruder. Unfortunately, the manufacturer does not give any more specifications.
The extruder should allow for smooth feeding of filament and powerful extrusion. Equipped with a 0.4 mm extrusion nozzle by default, it can also hold 0.2mm and 0.3 mm nozzles, allowing for finer prints. With a maximum temperature of 270 °C, the QQ-S is set to handle all common print filaments such as ABS PLA, PVA, and wood. But also flexible materials, as well as HIPS support materials.
The controller board is the brain of any 3D printer, responsible for orchestrating components like the extruder, heated bed, motors, and sensors. So the more power you got in there, the smother the printer operates.
While its predecessor – the FLSUN QQ – operated on an 8-Bit Arduino Mega 2560, the QQ-S is equipped with a 32-Bit motherboard and a separate MOS module, allowing for stable prints even at high printing speed. In the product description, the manufacturer is tight on any further technical information as to what model is exactly used to operate this printer. However, thanks to some customer Q&A’s, the supposed motherboard used is a 32-Bit Robin Mini Board. Equipped with a touchscreen and Wifi connection, it can resume printing from the breakpoint, save in case of a power outage, detect filament outage, and turn auto-off after printing finishes. All in all, it’s pretty much all you can ask for from an operating system.
