The Mowi Printer is a foldable 3d printer, folded flat it is small, but opened up it can print big and with two materials. It also has a display for standalone printing. The Mowi printer is still under development so expect the files to change. I also did some manual changes that are not reflected in the files yet.


  • Printing Size: 260mm x 200mm x 195mm
  • Folded size: 400mm x 330mm x 86mm

  • Lasercut parts: 21

Main Open Issues

  • The printer is not yet stable enough for reliable printing when placed on an uneven surface. (Find a way to fixate Y box to Z Frame for printing)
  • The cables get stuck underneath hinge when unfolding and they get stuck betwee de x endstop and the x carriage.
  • X- Carriage can only be printed with support and needs a lot of cleaning.
  • Dual extruder calibration.
  • Easier Assembly
  • Less different vitamins
