About project

In fact, the design of most 3d printers is boring and technological.

And since my son likes the Star Wars universe, the new design is dedicated to him.

Sensing the approach of terrible events, I finished the construction in the winter of 2022.

But because of Russia's war against my homeland, which directly affected my family, I am publish the construction only now.


1. Better body strength than the Prusa i3, which gives stable printing.

2. Simple ability to create a closed print field for using ABS filament.

3. The possibility of transporting the printer without disassembly and without using packaging. After covering 800 kilometers in the car, my printer started printing without any settings.

4. Easy access to printer components for easy design changes and adjustments.

5.Yes, the case is quite bulky, but all the tools and several spools of filament fit inside it without taking up space around.

Also, this printer is ready to install a dual extruder.


The development of the Prusa3StarWarsEdition is placed on github:
