Reprap Huxley

Contents

Introduction

From the RepRap family of open-source 3D printers.

eMaker says:

The eMAKER Huxley is one of the smallest 3D printers available at the moment in terms of footprint but not in terms of build volume. Its primary design goals were to offer a printer which was small enough to be portable, fast to replicate, and fast to assemble and commission. Since its inception at the end of 2010, the eMAKER Huxley has undergone brisk development and heavy testing. Two prototype machines have been built, although neither now looks the way it started life. The great thing about these machines being self replicating is that they can print upgrades and replacement parts for themselves.

Specs

  • Build volume: 140x140x110mm
  • Overall size: 260x280x280mm
  • Printing materials: ABS, PLA, 1.75mm diameter thermoplastic.
  • Build surface: Heated to ensure parts do not warp.
  • Resolution: 0.0125mm
  • Speed: 12000mm/min
  • Deposition rate: 33cm3 / hr
  • Motion: Linear bearings on X and Y axes, Igus low friction bushings on Z axis.
