In 2019, Raise3D introduced its IDEX based E2 3D Printer for education and light commercial use. In late 2021, the E2CF was released to address deficiencies in the E2 to attempt to capture the interest by customers to print Carbon Fiber reinforced materials.

IDEX based 3D printers have been around for some time. Two independent print heads move along rails and allow for some cute capabilities, “mirror mode” (print 2 parts inverse of each other) and “duplication mode” (print 2 of the same parts at the same time).

In “duplication mode”, the E2 software suggests that their printer can print 2 parts faster than Fusion3’s 3D printers. However, is not actually true and only might occur is very few instances. Fusion3’s EDGE 3D Printer is 25%-35% faster for any other quantity of parts (1 part, or 3 parts or more) as the duplication mode can only produce 2 parts at a time.

Take a look at the comparison table below. You’ll see for yourself that the Fusion3 EDGE makes much more sense for a variety of commercial applications.


  • A much larger print area with much faster print times than the Raise3D.
  • Designed to print Carbon Fiber reinforced matierals at fast speeds and great print quality, but also prints the widest variety of materials of any 3D printer.
  • Ability to purchase filament from multiple vendors and receive optimized settings created by Fusion3.
  • Longer warranty and more robust technical support.
  • Made in the USA.
