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.
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.
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.
