This is a log of my experiences in a first printer build. After looking at the various developments I settled on the Prusa i3 as a good starting point because:

  • Simple, well tested design with active development
  • Good build instructions
  • Plenty of support & community knowledge

Planning Links

The Prusa home page - I considered the timber frame initially and a possible repStrap pathway but as I utilise a lot of aluminium components through work and I need a working printer quickly the single aluminium frame and printed components seemed a better... and ultimately probably cheaper route to take.

  • EiNSTeiN variant - This was a good reference page that helped me to start to consider my BOM
  • [i3 build instructions] - This was a good introduction to an i3 build and also helped me in part identification.
  • BOM and instructions - As the printed parts I purchased were based on this variant this was also a good reference to the build and parts list that I would require.
