PCS Additive Manufacturing is headquartered in Timonium, Maryland. We provide products and services for the medical, mechanical, architectural, civil engineering and other areas of design and product development and manufacturing.

By providing superior products and support, PCS Additive Manufacturing  has become the "Best in Class" provider in the Mid-Atlantic region. PCS, Is there to help you bring your products and services to market quicker and for less.

The original PCS, Inc. was founded in 1986 after seeing that the Computer Aided Design and Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAD/CAM) industries were lacking the technology that the rest of the industry was enjoying. It has since emerged as a leader in the computer-integrated manufacturing service by developing state-of-the-art software, hardware, and training designed specifically to suit CAD/CAM industries with enhanced technological tools and training. The modern PCS, Inc. is now providing these same technology upgrades across a wide variety of industry from dental 3D models to RTV molding of the latest widget invention.

PCS Additive Manufacturing is now able to offer a complete choice of prototype parts that are produced on the latest generation equipment from a comprehensive range of plastic and metal production grade materials.  In addition we now offer precision parts made on a wide range of traditional and additive manufacturing systems and a variety of finishing, molding and casting capabilities.

PCS Additive Manufacturing provides 3D printing services and 3D printers for a wide range of industries.

3D printing or additive manufacturing is any of various processes of making three-dimensional solid objects from a digital file. The creation of a 3D printed object is achieved by additive processes, instead of traditional machining techniques (subtractive processes) which mostly rely on the removal of material. In an additive process, an object is created by laying down successive layers of material until the entire object is created

x400 Pro v4

Regular price $14,999.00



The x400 v4 was developed and manufactured in Germany. It impresses with precision, speed and its optimum build platform for additive production of large objects as well as small series with industrial quality.

Updated from the best-selling x400 v3 (blue housing), the x400 v4 comes packed with a number of amazing new features: auto bed-leveling, filament out sensor, touch screen control, industrial computing power, and network connectivity.

Preconfigured with a 1.75 mm hotend from the world-renowned experts @ e3D, the x400 is compatible with all e3D nozzles sizes for quick printing or to focus on finer details. With an all-new machined aluminum extruder, the x400 can print virtually any material right out of the box – PLA, ABS, HIP, PVA, PET…even TPU!

The x400 has been optimized for professional users, who push the limits of 3D printing in design and engineering roles across all industries – consumer products, automotive, marine, industrial, and fabrication.  With its transparent housings, the x400 is also an excellent 3D printer for educational environments – K-12 (Middle School / High School), Community Colleges and Universities.

From Robotics Teams and Engineering Classrooms to the Production Floor, the x400 is built to last with all the quality that we have come to expect from German Engineering!  Configured with the technical user in mind, the x400 features machined aluminum components, low-play gears, high accuracy trapezoidal spindles, and hardened guide rods.  There are no 3D printed parts to worry about warping or breaking on the x400 – every single component critical to accuracy is custom-machined in Germany for the absolute highest precision possible.

Bundled with everything you need – Full-Enclosure, Dual Extruders, Heated Build Plate, 2x Spool Holders, 2x Build Plate Adhesives, Simplify3D, a SD Card, and even a roll of material to get you printing trouble free right out of the box!  Speaking of Simplify 3D and the x400 – it’s a perfect match! Simplify3D is a powerful 3D printing software that provides complete control over your print settings, making it easier to consistently produce high-quality 3D prints. Start up quickly with pre-configured settings optimized for the x400, review a simulation of your build sequence in the Preview Mode, and begin your 3D print with confidence.

The electronic components are Arduino-based, and are compatible with all Open Source RepRap firmware, enabling in-house or community-based changes with ease.

PCS Additive Manufacturing provides 3D printing services and 3D printers for a wide range of industries.

3D printing or additive manufacturing is any of various processes of making three-dimensional solid objects from a digital file. The creation of a 3D printed object is achieved by additive processes, instead of traditional machining techniques (subtractive processes) which mostly rely on the removal of material. In an additive process, an object is created by laying down successive layers of material until the entire object is created

Think big! Industrial large format 3D Printer

The new x1000 3D Printer was developed for printing large size objects or multi-object prints with industrial quality. Print prototypes, small series, casting cores or architecture and design objects big, fast and precise.

  • Large build envelope
  • High process reliability
  • Important safety features for industrial use
  • Special ventilation for high-quality prints
  • Network compatible (Wifi, Ethernet)
Large, closed build envelope with safety-door switch:

The closed build envelope avoids poor quality prints due to air flow. An automatic door locking mechanism keeps the hatch closed during the printing process for improved safety.

Direct Drive DD3 Extruder with Full Metal Hotend:
New extruder technology, no adjustment necessary, variable contact pressure. High-heatable hotend (up to 290 °C / 554 °F) for industrial filaments. Hotends can be exchanged quick and easily.

Print fast and precise:
A minimum layer height from 0.1 mm allows precise prints. If you need a draft or a less precise object simply use a 0.8 mm nozzle for quick and fast printing.

Feature-rich easy to use printing software:
Easy to use printing software with pre-defined printing profiles and many features.

Filament Management:
Two sensor filament control prevents useless prints due to filament run out

File transfer:
Network compatible via Wifi or Ethernet.
