Blocks zero

The printer was designed to greatly simplify the assembly process and 3d printing experience for new enthusiasts and experienced users. The main features are:

- Do-it-yourself KIT with all the parts and tools included.
- Easy assembly with very simple visual instructions.
- Optimized print volume so it is portable and still able to print the majority of our needs.
- Good print quality: mechanical sturdiness and NEMA17 motors so high print speeds can be achieved.
- No heated platform: prints only PLA based filaments.
- Removable acryllic platform that has good results sticking PLA filaments.

Where to buy

You can buy a kit at blockstec.com. It is made and shipped from Portugal.
