What is the cheapest possible, real 3D printer you can buy without making one compromise after the other? That’s the question we’re asking by building a Prusa i3 MK2-style 3D printer that comes with most of the important features of the original one from Josef Prusa and requires a bit more work for sourcing and building the machine, but most importantly, we’re going to build it only with the most affordable set of parts.
The time is now! Dual- and Multiextrusion have always been around, but never really caught on. This year, we’re going to see a whole lot more of it and more sophisticated solutions, too!

Does every Titan need to be big? Turns out E3D’s big guy does a great job even when used in its smallest configuration! Get one Short stepper motor (ebay US/CA/AU/UK) According to the all-knowing Wikipedia, the Titans were giant deities of incredible strength, who ruled during the legendary Golden Age. Well, if this isn’t the cutest little extruder you ever did see! So the E3D Titan – everyone’s pretty excited about it, so let’s check out what this little guy is all about! And at first glance, you might goContinue reading
Everything about extruders – one of the functionally most important parts of any filament-based 3D printer! Building a RepRap-style 3D Printer without buying a full kit is still the purist’s way to go – it’s the cheapest and most flexible way of acquiring a 3D printer, but there are a lot of chances where stuff can go wrong. In this mini-series i’ll try to cover the most important spots while Luk builds his iTopie i3!
