BQ Hephestos 2

BQ_H000187

New product

A DIY printer with professional results.

Hephestos is based on the Prusa i3. With the latest version, we have evolved it to create a professional printer, while maintaining the spirit of the original. We have opted for a new design that enables us to achieve a larger printing volume, reaching (X) 210mm x (Y) 297mm x (Z) 220mm.
