The bq Hephestos 3D Printer Kit is a product designed, created and tested by bq in their factory in Spain, the assembly process is easy and convenient with simple steps laid out in a clear, visual guide. The kit parts are presented in two trays with reference numbers to facilitate part recognition thereby helping you follow the steps.
The standard Hephestos prints with PLA, so it can be used in a domestic environment as it doesn’t emit any nasty odours. There is no heated bed on the standard Hephestos, so the energy consumption of the standard printer is only 60W. There are number of upgrade kits for the Hephestos, the heated bed to allow printing with ABS & Nylon and the extended print platform for larger printed products. Both of these extend the capabilities of your Hephestos so that you can undertake a wider range of prototyping projects.
The Hephestos 2 is the bigger brother to the Hephestos, also a DIY printer from bq's factory in Spain. The Hephestos 2 is engineered for more precision, accuracy and speed with structural parts being metal instead of the plastic parts of the Hephestos 2016, it takes under 2 hours to put together. The Print bed is larger than the Hephestos 2016 so an extended print bed is not needed for the new Hephestos 2, but a heated bed upgrade is now available.
