Description

Details

The bq Prusa i3 Hephesto is an affordable do-it-yourself 3D printer kit. It includes step-by-step manuals and all the parts you need to build your own 3D printer.

Open source 3D printer

The bq Prusa i3 Hephestos 3D printer is an improved version of the most popular printer of the RepRap community, the Prusa i3. The hardware is 100% open source and you can modify, adapt and even improve the 3D printer any way you like.

The Prusa i3 Hephostos is available in three cool colors: yellow, red and blue and can be upgraded with a Base enlargement kit.

Multi-color and multi-material 3D printing

If you are looking for a 3D printer with the ability to print in multiple-colors or materials, the Prusa i3 Hephestos can easily be upgraded with the Diamond Hotend.  

The Diamond Hotend is a single nozzle hotend that adds multi-material and multi-color features to your 3D printer. The Diamond Hotend requires little or no calibration and enables the Prusa i3 to print with 3 different materials or colors.
