This is a complete kit for building the new Prusa i3 3D pinter.
This kit makes it possible to build a working Prusa i3 3D printer. It's not a standard Prusa i3 because we changed some parts and things that improve the printer in a big way. These changes made it one of the better Prusa i3 printers and we are proud on it!
You are receiving a full 3D printer DIY Kit with all the hardware, software, threaded and smooth rods, one glass plate to print on, power supply, bulldog clips and as extra an Graphical LCD screen that makes it possible to print without computer using an SD card.
The aluminum frame of the printer is painted in Sparkling Black. In combination with the black parts this is an awesome look!
There are a lot of kits out there on the web. And the prices are also different on every shop. We know our kits are not the cheapest around but we want to deliver and sell high quality parts and printers. We are also making sure that our service during your build is optimal! If you have questions you can contact us by mail and you will get an answer within 24 hours (usualy within the hour). You can also download all the firmware and software for the printer from our dropbox directory.
Some examples of our modifications:
We are using 1,5 A Nema17 motors and not the cheaper 2,5 A because the 1,5 A motors are better for the electronics and stepper drivers.
The Jhead hotend is an original one. We prefer this original one because it will last a lot longer and you will have no problems during the prints on your machine.
Our Pololu stepper drivers are the Black edition, this means the current is 1,5 A and not 1 A.
We only use M10 threaded rods in this model because these are very rigid. For this upgrade we had to change some parts to fit the M10 Threaded rods.
We use 624ZZ Bearings for the guide of the GT2 belt. This is because we don't like the idea of printed guides for the belt.
Special made hobbed bolt that never slips or breaks the filament! You will be verry happy with our own made hobbed bolt!
All the parts on the printer are high quality so you don't need to worry about that!

Option 1: Type of Hotend
You can choose what type of hotend you want to use on your 3D printer.
The first thing you need to choose is if you want to print with 1.75 or 3 mm filament. On the Prusa i3 we the results for 3 mm and 1.75 mm are quite the same. Second you need to decide what orifice you want to use. The 0.35 mm opening is a bit finer and you can print with higher detail. The 0,5 mm opening is for printing bigger things in less time.
The adjusted plastic parts are added in this kit. The parts are printed in black ABS with a high level of finish. They will not only look good on the printer but they are very firm!
