Prusa i3 – FDM 3D Printer

Hi there! I just finished my 3D printer and wanted to share with you.

I didn’t buy a kit, I don’t recommend you do, I sourced the parts from ebay/aliexpress/local. I’ll attach my BOM.

The printer is a Prusa i3 rework . Not the best design but well suited for a first printer. I’ll just post some pictures for now and present more details later.

Here it is, my BOM . It totals to about 350$, with 10$ for some miscellaneous parts I bought locally or had already sitting, like some files (tool), cables, etc. You could go waaay cheaper, just buy an acrylic frame (although I highly disagree of it!!!) and a cheap E3D v6 clone for like 8$, but just buy the real thing. I got the E3D V6 lite and had no problems (except a burnt heater cartridge). A good hotend is a must if you want to save yourself a big headache.
