When Gutenberg made the first printing press, it took years for his technology to reach the hands of the masses. The first commercially available 2D printers were released centuries after the original’s inception, but fortunately for you, the wait for residential ready 3D printers wasn’t nearly as long. Delivering the parts necessary for assembling a 3D device all your own, the Kossel Kit has everything you need to start printing plastic today.
Building off the open source technology started by the self-replicating RepRap, the Kossel Kit comes with all of the primary parts you need, including a power supply and glass build platform. After constructing the frame with a few basic tools, simply hook up the electronics and you’re printing in no time. Though the part list is more complicated than a standard Canon, the easy to follow step-by-step instructions will get you there with time to spare. As all the parts are pre-cut and labeled, you won’t run the risk of mixing up what goes where.
Once set up, the three stepper motors work in tandem to control the kinematically linked effector for maximum movement in the x, y, and z axis. Allowing faster and smoother printing, put out as many prototypes as your heart desires without wearing down the machine. It comes at a reasonable price too, thanks to the acrylic hardware, and the auto calibration makes navigation a breeze. Finished off with aluminum extrusions for durability and simple aesthetics, the Kossel Kit transforms your printing process in only a few hours.
