bq Witbox 2 review
This 3D printer offers an overall print experience and reliability close to an industrial-grade product (except for the plastic part that holds the SD card reader and the LCD screen). However, the bq Witbox 2 is a bit noisy and does not come with its dedicated software. We strongly recommend the use of BuildTak, and without it, we must admit the experience is likely to have been more painful.
With a price tag of 1,690€, the Witbox 2 is a very good deal if you’re in-market for a serious desktop 3D printer. At this price point, some of its competitors offer dual extruders (Flashforge Creator Pro) or ABS capabilities (Zortrax M200) but for a first time user or hobbyist only looking to 3D print PLA based filament, the Witbox 2 is one of the best options on the market and we strongly recommend it.
- Quality of the product and the 3D prints

bq Witbox 2 overview
The bq Witbox 2 is a desktop 3D printer made by bq, a company well known for its smartphones, e-readers and tablets based in Spain.
The bq Witbox 2 boasts a large 3D print volume for a desktop 3D printer, with a DIN-A4 (21 x 29.7 cm) print area offering up to 20 cm in height. This allows the Witbox 2 to print large-scale objects or multiple parts at the same time. The design of the bq Witbox 2 is not very original but reuses a proven architecture, thus simple and robust. The BQ Witbox 2 is made in Spain.
The main improvements of the Witbox 2 compared to the first version:
– new CNC circuit board
– intuitive graphic LCD display with higher resolution
– auto-levelling system
This 3D printer offers a closed frame, which can be locked with a pair of keys provided by bq.
