Large print volume


Witbox was bq's first 3D printer. It was ranked in the top five best printers in the world and reached more than 50 countries in just under a year.


The bq Witbox is a domestic printer with DIN-A4 print volume (21 x 29.7 cm) and a height of up to 20 cm, meaning it has a greater capacity to print large-scale objects and multiple parts simultaneously than any other printer.

WE ARE EVOLVING 3D PRINTING.

Witbox was our first 3D printer. It was ranked in the top five best printers in the world and reached more than 50 countries in just under a year. But we wanted more. Building on an excellent product, we have managed to create a more reliable, convenient and practical 3D printer. A ready-to-use printer that is perfect for working in domestic, professional and educational environments, delivering extraordinary results.

PRINT WHAT YOU IMAGINE.

The extruder is a key component because it pushes the filament through the hot-end causing it to melt. We have designed and developed a new extruder for the Witbox 2 incorporating a double drive gear traction system that provides optimal grip of the filament: applying pressure, the two gearwheels flawlessly slide the filament to the end of the Hot-End. With the risk of obstruction minimised, a greater variety of filaments can be used, such as PLA, bronze, wood, copper and even flexible materials like FilaFlex.

NEW INDUCTOR SENSOR FOR MAXIMUM PRECISION.

To achieve flawless results, the extruder must always work at a specific distance from the bed The Witbox 2 includes a new inductive sensor that measures this distance with utmost precision. The sensor is made of an electric coil that generates a magnetic field. When the bed moves closer to the field, the sensor detects it at a certain distance away and advises the user once it has reached the correct position via a small red LED. This mechanism enables precise and rigorous levelling, giving first class results.

AUTO-LEVELLING: MAKING 3D PRINTING EASIER THAN EVER.

Witbox 2 has a new auto-levelling system, freeing you from having to manually adjust the bed. When activated, the printer can detect any incline using the inductive sensor. It then adjusts the movement of the motors for perfect printing, even on a sloping surface.

100% BQ ELECTRONICS.

The BQ CNC is a new circuit board which has been specifically designed for the Witbox 2 by the BQ hardware team. This component allows a more fluid movement of the motors and offers improved heat dissipation.
All the Witbox 2 connections are protected and the digital potentiometers eliminate manual adjustments. The Witbox 2 boasts a new, more intuitive, graphic LCD display with higher resolution, improving user experience. The interface, along with the electronics that control the display, have also been developed in-house.

SHARE, IMPROVE, EVOLVE.

We believe in co-creation and Open Source Initiative. We contribute with our knowledge and work to the Technological Heritage of Humanity so that people can use it, make it grow and share it back. We believe that knowledge has no limits, and that´s why the firmware and hardware of the Witbox 2 is 100% open source.

Open Source

You can run Witbox printer with a variety of open source software such as Slic3r™, Cura™, Pronterface™ and Repetier™. Enjoy greater freedom of use, greater compatibility and total technological independence.

The hardware of bq Witbox is 100% open source, meaning you can modify it and adapt it however you like. At bq we´re keen to share all our improvements, without restricting knowledge.

Support, all year round

Our commitment to our users: to be by your side for the entire life of your printer. We offer a two-year warranty for materials and labour, and in the event of an incident, we can deliver replacement parts anywhere in the world within 72 hours.

We have over 150 technicians available 365 days a year, and the high quality of our support team has been recognised officially by the exclusive ISO 20000 accreditation.
