A DIY printer with professional results.
Hephestos 2 is our second DIY (Do it yourself) printer. Hephestos is based on the Prusa i3, one of the most popular models in the RepRap community. With the latest version, we have evolved it to create a professional printer, while maintaining the spirit of the original. We have opted for a new design that enables us to achieve a larger printing volume, reaching (X) 210mm x (Y) 297mm x (Z) 220mm.
Materials and design, the key to stability.
The Hephestos 2 is a highly stable printer. To achieve this, we have replaced the printed plastic parts with metallic ones. The use of aluminium and steel provide a professional finish and a more robust structure. These materials are combined with semi-transparent polymethacrylate parts that partially conceal the internal mechanism of the printer. It also has three support points and a retractable leg, which moves on the Z axis to adjust the height and stabilise the printer.
3, 2, 1… Print!
Our goal was to enable you to have the Hephestos 2 assembled and ready to print in less than 2 hours. The parts have been designed with this in mind; reducing the quantity of additional components to a minimum and optimising the packaging for your convenience and to make them easier to recognise. The end result is a printer with elegant lines and a fast and effective setup.
