German RepRap PRotos v3 3d printerThe third generation oft the ever popular PRotos 3d printer kit is now available. It now sports a 3 point printing bed adjustment for easier calibration. Also new are milled aluminium profiles which, together with the rigid steel frame, lead to increased precision and stability. Thanks to the experiences from previous generations the PRotos v3 is easier to assemble than before. The cable looms are pre-crimped and the circuit boards are fully pre-assembled.

The PRotos v3 kit will be available in two versions: the PRotos v3 Base Kit and the PRotos v3 Full Kit.

The PRotos v3 is fully open source. Combined with the modular approach of a kit this ensures compatibility with further modifications by the RepRap community.

German RepRap Printing Plate CarbonPrinting Plate Carbon

With this carbon print plate there is no more need to stick a sheet of PET or Kapton tape onto the print bed. The plate has been tested and works with our filament (except PP). The models firmly stick to the plate yet can be removed easily.
