The Artillery Sidewinder X1 is an FFF (Fused Filament Fabrication) 3D printer from the less well-known manufacturer “Artillery”. When taken out of the packaging, the 3D printer is already 95% set up. Attach a few more parts (~ 20 minutes) and the printer is ready to go. Everything you need for assembly is included in the scope of delivery. Only the sensor for auto-leveling is missing! But you can easily buy it separately.
Even 3D printing experts are convinced of the quality of the individual components. This is also reflected in many Sidewinder X1 test reports that give the 3D printer excellent marks. The frame consists of stable aluminum profiles. The power supply is CE compliant and can be used without hesitation.
The printing area is 300 x 300 x 400 mm, so that even large objects are no problem for this 3D printer. In addition to the large printing area, the printer has a number of other interesting features. Printing is carried out on a pre-cut glass plate of the Ultrabase type, on which all types of plastics adhere perfectly and can be easily removed. Despite the large heating bed, the 220V direct feed brings it to 1 ° C within 2-110 minutes. The printer is controlled via the color touchscreen. This is even more convenient than control using buttons and controls.
The Sidewinder X1 is extremely quiet during printing. Less than 60 dB are achieved. The board used is an MKS Gen L. The (non-name) drivers are plugged in and can be exchanged. Incidentally, Sidewinder does not use mechanical end stops, but inductive end stops that work a little more precisely. The extruder is a titanium extruder with a gear, ie a precise and powerful plastic feed that is installed directly on the Y-axis. Due to the short feed, the layer accuracy is even higher. The extended nozzle ensures high printing speeds. For the eye there is also a colored LED backlight that can be controlled via the printer menu.

Artillery Sidewinder X1 reviews
I bought the Sidewinder at the beginning of the year and have now expanded it by quite a few upgrades. Out of the box it's pretty darn good. Simply unbeatable with the improvements. Nothing better in the price range.
I bought the Sidewinder X1 after hearing that it is currently the best 3D printer kit from China. I wasn't disappointed either. Super processed, high quality hardware and the first print results were excellent without optimization. What annoyed me a bit is the missing leveling sensor. I thought it was included. The dealer has now offered to send me one. Therefore only 4 out of 5 stars.
Super light construction and delivers excellent printing results. It is also so quiet that it does not interfere with overnight printing.
