KONG3D is our first FFF 3D printer with an build-volume of one cubic meter = 35 cubic foot. Designed for industrial use, it combines speed and reliability, precision and innovation:

The Z axis is driven by four ball screw drives from top to bottom. This allows you to set up and load the printer while standing.

For the print portal, a CoreXY kinematics is used, which offers high printing speeds with minimal noise development – precisely controlled by a closed loop drive system with optical position encoders for reliable and repeatable positioning (SureGlide).

With our unique AcuTouch bedleveling, the printbed is automatically de-warped and fine-tuned before each print run, reducing tolerances to a minimum.

KONG3D is equipped with a DualExtruder for the simultaneous use of two different filaments.

Engineering for big ideas

3BOTS develops systems for digitalizing and reproducing large objects. Among these are automated scanners and additive manufacturing tools.

Modern technology is used to combine hardware and software with the robust components of mechanical engineering – made in Germany.

Founded in 2016 as part of a 2D-printing business, 3BOTS was founded with more than 30 years of knowledge in hardware and software design, reproduction, image processing, and product development.

We develop, design and build our machines in Berlin, which in collaboration with universities, connected development tools, and the collaboration with international suppliers allows for efficient advanced machines paired with excellent support at reasonable prices.

Designed by 3BOTS in Berlin.



KONG3D is a commercial FFF 3D-printer with a volume of 1m^3.
It combines conservative mechanical engineering with modern controlling technology which allows for industrial use.

Its great speed predestine KONG3D for use in advertisement as it is able to print large hollow objects and its great precision allows for industrial prototyping or medical applications.

Due to its compact size relative to the printing volume, KONG3D is even usable in development or office spaces. Dual extruders with up to 1mm extrusion-diameter, active filament mounting, automatic heatbed leveling, and continuous monitoring are standard features.

KONG3D was presented as a prototype at maker:faire Berlin 2016 and the production model will be unveiled at Fabcon 2017 in Erfurt.


SPECTRE is a „stitching scanner“ which digitalizes large originals (e.g. paintings, fossils, surfaces) in maximum resolution with correct colors and topological surface-maps.

Digital image sensors have developed significantly in recent years which in conjunction with modern software allows for the creation of an extensive projections of all the originals characteristics which is especially important for the preservation of art.

SPECTRE provides a universal platform and can be customized for the requirements of many different tasks.


fused filament fabrication

– also called FDM® – is an additive manufacturing technology which works by laying down material in layers.

FFF works in a similar fashion to hot glue guns as single layers of molten plastic are spread out on a surface. Plastic filament is heated and extruded through a jet. It is then cooled until it hardens once it is in the correct position.

Filament is usually made of thermoplastic material like polyethylene, polypropylene, polyactide, ABS, or PETG.


A shape is constructed layer after layer through vectorial movement along the production surface and gradual upward movement of said surface.

Layer sizes are generally between 0.025mm and 1.25mm. Printed objects can be both hollow or solid. Wall thickness are variable and are limited to e.g. 0.2mm due to the printers architecture.

Layers fuse together to create complex structures and protruding components might have to rely on supporting structures in order to be printed. The supporting structures are generated by the software and can be printed (using dual extruders) in a different material (e.g. water-soluble).

FFF-3D printers print common 3D-CAD models – for example STL data of an object.

Many of these materials meet the requirements of sustainable production: Filaments are biological and made from renewable resources or are biologically degradable depending on demand.
