This is also a price-friendly option and can be extremely rewarding when you succeed. Before you know it, you will be printing out a whole new 3D printer with your DIY 3D printer!
To buy your DIY 3D printer kit, choose the right 3D printer with the attributes that will compliment your 3D printing objectives. A larger build volume such as the Anet A8 Plus 3D printer will allow for larger 3D prints with more variety. Select the auto-bed leveling feature for higher precision 3D printing. If you will be building a 3D printer for the first time, have a look at our Anet A6 Prusa i3 pro DIY kit is a full starter kit that comes with filament and adhesion spray to get you printing right away. All the 3D printers in this selection make use of the materials PLA filament, PETG filament, and ABS filament.

When building a 3D printer from the start, there are some key factors to consider that can make all the difference. Think of how you are going to build your 3D printer and prepare a space that you will place your 3D printer in once it is assembled. Assembly time can take 3-6 hours, but this can depend on the model and experience so ensure to have sufficient time, or you could assemble your 3D printer in small phases. A DIY 3D printer kit will come with a user manual and straightforward instructions; however, feel free to use the assembly videos linked in all product descriptions as they will walk you through the entire process. A great 3D printer software that we recommend is Cura by Ultimaker or Slic3r which can both be downloaded for free.
The maintenance of your 3D printer is essential to ensure reliable 3D printing processes. Frequent maintenance will also guarantee safety and a well-performing 3D printer. Pay attention to all components of your 3D printer and inspect them individually from time to time. Perform some quick light cleaning with a dedicated microfiber cloth in between prints and check that your cables are properly connected and in good shape. Tighten any screws that could have become loose during printing. Choose a lubricant to use on both the Y-axis and X-axis for smooth movements and keep your 3D printer’s nozzle in the best shape by using a hot-end cleaning brush.
