Hephestos-2 Prusa Kit

£826.10 Code p10013

Announcing the BQ Prusa Hephestos 2. In Stock for next day Free delivery* Building on the success of the Hephestos-1, this kit has been extensively re-engineered, providing the following additional features: - Faster build time - now only 1-2 hours - Self levelling bed - New double drive gear drive - Inductive sensor for greater precision - Improved electronics with new LCD display With the Hephestos 2, BQ have replaced the printed plastic parts with metallic ones. The use of aluminium and steel provides a professional finish and a more robust structure. These materials are combined with semi-transparent polymethacrylate parts which partially conceal the internal mechanism of the printer. It also has three support points and a retractable leg, which moves on the Z axis to adjust the height and stabilise the printer. Assembly is literally as easy as A B C - just unpack and assemble according to the layers. The printer is capable of printing with the following materials: - PLA - Bronze - Wood - Copper - Filaflex Specification Printing speed Maximum: 200 mm/s* *Subject to materials, profiles and software used.
