First !

Hi everyone,

I´d like to unveil the 3D printer I´m working on currently. It was planned o be used in my own production cycle but I also had distribution via some kind of open license in mind. Most likely it will be available as STEP files, as kit or readymade in the distant future.

The components used are just a starting point to gain some data. It sould be a state of the art prodution printer in the end, placed anywhere between DIY and "commercial".

I´m a one man company, so anything sold on my page soon is meant to fund further development and my bare survival :D

Looks super clean. Great build! What kind of hotend are you using?

Thank you very much :)

For the prototype I used the MK8 Extruder with hotend combination (Geetech?). To be honest I don´t know how the hotend itself is called. I had this from a previous build. This will be changed to a V6 or similiar with a custom geared drive soon.

Nice looking.

Add some "Iconic Epic Colors" to the printed parts :)

Thank you!

I guess orange would fit the brown frame perfectly but I guess thats already taken by an iconic company :)

I will see if I can find a good coloured filament for the final version.

Finished! Well as finished as a design can be :P

I tested the design a few months now and there are some minor improvements on the new tensioning system I currently work on but in general I would call it finished. Prints are quiete good compared to linear rail printers. The main advantage from an advanced standpoint is the big central cooled compartment in the bottom that allows you to throw in pretty much any electronics you can possibly imagine, making it a good playground for testing.


I did learn a lot while designing it and while I basically wanted to cut the delivery time of the MK2, whitch didn´t worked, I learned so many things that I don´t regret this choice at all. At least this is my main printer at the moment and the second one currently gets updated to the latest version.

Still haven´t settled for a color yet but black seems to work well. Considerng printing a set with metallic filaments.

Love the retro/deco/radio style of your first version.

For open source, I highly recommend you get your files up on GitHub. It is a terrific place to host open-source stuff.

Thank you! Yeah it is a bit of a different approach I fond it to be very practical as well. :)

Project is now on github as well.

Allthough the self hosted gitlab offers the same functionality.
