DIY-Kits of 3D Printer for maker, tinker and experts

DYI–Kits

Do-It-Yourself 3D printers (DIY-Kits) are a special experience for any maker and expert.

Would you rather buy an assem­bled 3D Print­er?

Overview of all benefits

Change the parts of your 3D Printer

Ful­ly assem­bled 3D print­ers are not built for chang­ing parts, the kits usu­al­ly have the pos­si­bil­i­ty for expan­sion like new print­heads.

Gain knowledge

Through assem­bling you bet­ter under­stand how the soft­ware and hard­ware work togeth­er.

Leisure activity

DIY-Kits are a great project for small groups with friends or chil­dren. It increas­es the inter­per­son­al con­nec­tion and plea­sure when the 3D Print­er is final­ly assem­bled.

Price-performance

The pur­chase price is low­er com­pared with assem­bled 3D Print­er. Nev­er­the­less, one must con­sid­er one’s own time and poten­tial errors along the way.

Prusa i3 Hep­hestos

The Prusa i3 kit is one of the most pop­u­lar kits on the mar­ket. It was devel­oped by the RepRap com­mu­ni­ty which works with plas­tic com­po­nents to enable repli­cat­ing your print­er. Thus, they want to cre­ate 3D print­ers that pro­duce new devices to achieve sim­ple access to the tech­nol­o­gy.

Sparkcube v1.1

This is an Open­Source project unlike the oth­er two kits, the SparkCube is only a blue­print. The indi­vid­ual plans are avail­able for down­load and you have to buy the com­po­nents your­self. There­fore, the device is more com­pli­cat­ed, there­fore scores with its sta­ble met­al com­po­nents.

Any­cu­bic Pul­ley

With the 3 brack­ets and the high con­struc­tion of the 3D print­er you get a slim and high device. Objects with a con­struc­tion vol­ume of up to 15x30cm are pos­si­ble. The 3D Print­er is our favorite, espe­cial­ly if you already have a small­er device.

The 3D Print­er Kits are a chal­lenge for all ages and expe­ri­ence lev­els. Still, many tin­kers are able to assem­ble the equip­ment and put it into oper­a­tion faster, there­fore we do not rec­om­mend it for begin­ners. Even fin­ished print­ers require prac­tice and get­ting to know the right set­tings. The devices are espe­cial­ly suit­able for groups as in schools or for prac­ticed 3D print­ing fans. If you are already famil­iar with an assem­bled 3D Print­er, you can expand your knowl­edge and skills. Anoth­er advan­tage is that chang­ing parts and extend­ing the fea­tures can be made sub­se­quent­ly like the men­tioned print head.
