The Prusa i3 Achatz Edition Complete Kit incorporates the latest improvements and developments that the Reprap 3D Printing world has to offer. ReprapUniverse has multiple years of experience in 3D Printing and the components of this Kit are carefully selected to put an incredible piece of 3D Printing technology in your hands. It now comes with the exciting and extremely powerful new 1730 Full Metal Hotend! Don't waste your time with a cheap China 3D-Printer Kit (that will give you tons of issues and NO support) but go for the proven quality of ReprapUniverse.
Increased printing speed & build volume
The Prusa i3 Achatz Edition has a higher build volume than its predecessor, the Prusa Mendel i2 3D printer. The build volume of the Prusa i3 Achatz Edition equals 200x200x170 mm and is perfectly suitable for mid-sized objects. The lightweight Trespa (HPL) frame solution allows smoother operation and increased printing speeds.
Future proof 3D printer
The Prusa i3 Achatz Edition is a Reprap open-source 3D printer that really brings to life the true beauty and value of the Reprap movement. As the 3D printing industry is evolving at an ever increasing pace, the Prusa i3 Achatz Edition gives you the flexibility to anticipate on these developments as literally every single part is replaceable. When a new great HotEnd comes along, you can simply upgrade your machine instead of buying a whole new 3D printer. Furthermore the printer can reproduce its own plastic parts. We recommend printing a set of spare parts once you have the printer operational.
Quality components & service
ReprapUniverse has carefully selected the components that form part of this Kit. All Prusa i3 Achatz Edition printed parts where printed on low speeds on our machines to guarantee the highest possible quality of these parts. If a part breaks during the assembly of the printer we are happy to send you a free replacement part. We have added some parts that have a beneficial impact on the overall printing quality of the Prusa i3 Achatz Edition 3D Printer like Aluminium Z Motor Couplers and a Trespa Y Carriage Plate.
Enhanced Frame Rigidity - High Quality Trespa (HPL)
The Frame that holds together the Prusa i3 Achatz Edition is made of a specially selected high quality type Trespa high-pressure laminate (HPL). The Frame consists of the Main Frame plate and a Carriage plate for mounting the heated bed. The filament spool holder is functionally integrated into the Frame design itself and can be equipped with 1 and 2KG spools of filament.
Every Piece Matters - 0.25 mm ABS Prusa i3 Printed Parts
The Printed Parts that form the heart of the Prusa i3 Achatz Edition 3D Printer comprise all the latest advancements of the Prusa i3. All Parts are printed in ABS which make them very durable, resistant and suitable for heavy duty usage. The Printed Parts have a layer height of 0.25 mm and were printed on low speeds to guarantee the highest possible quality. Printed Parts are availabe in the following color options: Yellow, Black, White, Orange & Pink..

With this innovative, modular Full Metal Hotend it is now possible to switch from printing 1.75 mm to 3 mm Filament by simply changing the Filament Nozzle Unit in just a few minutes. 1730's innovative modular design is leakage proof and highly optimized for printing standard filaments, special filaments and high-temperature filaments. With the 1730 Full Metal Hotend you can print almost everything in the best possible quality. Bad prints just belong to the past or to your colleague with that cheap China Hotend :-)!
3D Printing Powerhouse - RAMPS 1.4 3D Printer Controller
The RAMPS 1.4 3D Printer Controller is a complete electronics solution for driving your Prusa i3 Achatz Edition Reprap 3D Printer. The RAMPS 1.4 3D Printer Controller Board interfaces with an Arduino compatible Mega 2560 board and has an extra slot for a 5th stepper motor driver which gives you the option of upgrading your machine with an extra extruder in the future. The board comes with the feature-rich Marlin firmware, four A4988 stepper motor drivers. it is possible to upgrade this Kit with a Display solution for true standalone printing (no computer connected). Please contact us for more information on the Display.

It is possible to upgrade your full kit with a LCD Display Controller for standalone printing (printing without a pc connected). We highly recommend operating the printer with an LCD Display Controller as your pc can have a negatively influence on the print job. The Display Controller has a SD card reader & fan control. The case for the LCD display can be printed from Thingiverse.
You can upgrade your Prusa i3 Achatz Edition - Full DIY Kit with a fan and mount that is attached directly to the extruder. This fan is highly recommended, especially for printing PLA, as it will cool the extruded filament. The fan will improve bridging and overhang performance. Adding a fan also means that you don't need to insert a minimum layer time in your slicing profile.
