A few words about the Biqu brand
The manufacturer of printers bearing the Biqu logo is Bigtree Technology, a company established in 2015. Like the vast majority of taken suppliers of 3D printing devices, it operates in Shenzen, China. Relatively small, because the company has only a few dozen employees, the vast majority of production is intended for export to the countries of North and South America, as well as Europe. Bigtree's range of products nowadays consists of filaments, spare parts and components (including motherboards) and, most of all, 3D printers, among which perhaps the most popular is the Biqu B1 model.
Biqu B1 3D Printer - parameters and capabilities
Produced by Biqu 3D printer will prove itself especially in home applications, workshops of hobbyists and makers. The construction of the device is based on a vertical frame with movable arm equipped with a print head (moving in Z axis), and a massive base with a table. The working area is 235 x 235 x 270 mm. The working nozzle can be heated up to 260°C, while the table reaches the maximum temperature of 100°C, which enables printing all the most popular types of filaments: PLA, ABS, PTEG, TPU. To control the device, there is a colour display - which is a rarity in devices from this price range - and the selection of functions is done by an encoder. A significant improvement is the filament sensor, as well as the option of resuming work after a loss of power, available in the Biqu B1 model. The 3D printer is also equipped with a magnetic overlay on the work table, making it easier to remove prints. The secret of the device's performance lies in the motherboard used - 32-bit SKR 1.4 with ARM Cortex-M3 processor, including I2C and SPI communication interfaces.
Components for Biqu - incentive to experiment
In Botland shop you will find a selection of components compatible with Biqu 3D printers and enabling self-repair or expansion of the device. We have, among others, versatile, 32-bit Bigtreetech SKR v1.4 Turbo 32-bit motherboard equipped with 120-megahertz ARM Cortex-M3 processor type LPC1769. By mounting the board you can control stepper motors, enrich the device with an additional drive in Z axis or operate the printer remotely via WiFi (after mounting the ESP-01 module). Apart from the motherboard we offer Bigtreetech TMC2226 v1.0 stepper motor driver with heatsink, which increases the precision of printing and at the same time reduces the vibration emission. You will also find here a 3.5-inch Bigtreetech TFT35 v3.0 touchscreen display, which makes controlling the printer much more pleasant. The display can also work in a "regular" LCD 12864 mode - in this case, the selection of functions is still done by the encoder. If you want to get the most out of your Biqu 3D printer, try the Bigtreetech Writer v1.0 module for ESP-01S WIFI, which is compatible with SKR v1.4 and SKR v1.4 Turbo motherboards and allows you to modify the firmware you have uploaded, as well as facilitating debugging using the serial port.
