The I3 Metal Work, a robust desktop 3D printer


The I3 Metal Motion has a robust steel frame that simplifies its assembly compared to the Prusa I3 by drastically reducing the number of parts. The rigid and heavy structure has reinforcements to limit vibration effects and increase stability as much as possible. Also, the printed parts from the machine have been removed to perfect the design of the machine. The assembly kit comes with a 500g of PLA filament.


The printer has a disengageable extruder to remove or recharge the filament with a simple finger pressure. The build volume is 200 x 200 x 200mm and the printing speed has been optimised without challenging the quality of the prints. Below you will find more details on the technical specifications, the starting price for this printer is 650€ ($730).
