bq Prusa i3 Hephestos
Complete kit for step-by-step assembly: bq is proud to present the latest evolution of the Prusa i3, the most popular 3D printer in the RepRap community. bq's more advanced version, Hephestos, offers significant improvements: a kit that includes all the parts you need, manuals for step-by-step assembly and an active support service via bq's 3D forum to help with any queries you might have. In other words, the best printing at the best price with the easiest setup.
Safe and sound 3D printing made simple: The key innovation of the Hephestos is its cable-tidy. This enables bq to position the cables at the top and rear of the device, ensuring they
don´t interfere with the printer movements. bq have also achieved greater protection against burns by eliminating the heated bed and adding a protector to the extruder (the same one bq designed for the Witbox). And since there is no heated bed, the energy consumption of the printer barely reaches 60 W.
Open Source and parts designed by bq: The hardware of the Prusa i3 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 the improvements made to the printer have been made public. All the new parts can be downloaded free of charge.
