BQ Prusa i3 Hephestos 3D Printer Kit - The 3D Printer Guy

BQ Prusa i3 Hephestos 3D Printer Kit


  • Tidy, energy-efficient 3D Printing

    The key innovation of the Hephestos is it is cable-tidy. The position of the cables is at the top and rear of the device, ensuring they don't interfere with the printer movements. BQ has also achieved greater protection against burns by eliminating the heated bed and adding a protector to the extruder. Since there is no heated bed, the energy consumption of the printer barely reaches 60 W.

    Open Source and Parts Designed by BQ

    The Hephestos is 100% open source, meaning you can modify it and adapt it however you like. BQ is committed to expanding the RepRap community and they are keen to share all of their improvements, without restricting knowledge.  All updates, documentation, and software can be downloaded here for free.
