It is the second evolution of Prusa i3, the most popular 3D printer RepRap community. 

The kit contains all the necessary elements to be able to assemble and operate your own 3D printer easily. It also contains a manual that explains step by step procedure to be followed during the assembly process. On the software necessary BQ Hephestos 2 printer supports multiple free software: Cura software, Slic3r.

This version has a new metallic design, making it more stable and more stylish. The use of aluminium and steel provide a professional finish. It also, has a large print volume reaching 210mm (x-axis) * 297mm (y-axis) * 220mm (z-axis). 

Hephestos 2 can print 3D pieces with most filaments. This is largely due to the new extruder that incorporates a Double Drive Gear traction system. This component consists of two gearwheels that press and pull the filament along through the Hot-End. This way, Hephestos 2 can easily print flexible materials.

On the other hand, it has new features: auto-levelling, manual levelling using inductive sensor exclusively designed for 3D printing, power-saver system. As for electronics, all components are integrated into just one board: Zum Mega 3D. In addition, it has micro-USB connection type B or SD card reader.

BQ Hephestos 2 hardware is made with 100% free, you can modify and evolve all you want.BQ is still believes in the growing community committed to sharing RepRap and all improvements without putting limits to knowledge. All improvements made in the printer have been released. 

The shipping time can range from 10 to 20 days depending on the availability of the selected model.

This kit contains everything you need to build your own 3D printer and begin to realize your ideas, to power 3D printing. The Hephestos 2 has an assembly time of approximately 2 hours.
