100% Recommended

A great printer to learn

I've been modifying it very easily over time, and i'm now printing other upgrades with it.

Good printer

It's my first 3d printer and i modify it completely, for who want a printer with easy instruction and the support of the community is one of the best choice...

Difficult mounting and maintenance.

I am happy with the printer, (I have printed 20 reels), the quality-price of the printer is good. But it is a difficult machine to operate at the time of purchase, and it needs continuous maintenance to achieve perfect impressions, the extrusion blockage is continued.

prusa i3

le prusa i3 et plus difficile que la première imprimante que j'ai eu (dagoma) mais dès que l'on sait c'est plus agréable à régler et il a plus de fonctionnalités que le dagoma. Parce qu'il imprime en ABS. en résumé j'aime cette imprimante, si elle tombait en panne je me rachèterais là

BQ Prusa i3 Hephestos - A must have

Now I'm using it for two years. A wonderfull product less expensive with the biggest quality result. Very stable and low maintaining time. No wasted time, and a lot of mod available in order to improve performance and wide community over the world (Prusa and software compatible).

good product

I like it really. I am quite a new owner. The printer was bought from the hungarian distributor of Prusa. They used it approx. 300-400 hour in the past. I like it and made some special development.

Good product

I think that is a good relationship between price and quality. The printer is quite silent. There are some parts that could be more improved, but i'm really satisfied with the results.

Expensive option for introductory print

It's my first and only print... it requieres time to build and the frame could be a bit better as it's a bit unestable... it provide options to change extruders that make printer quite better but at a "new printer price"...

Happy with it but now will try another cheapest brand to compare

I'm a rookie

I just started 3d printing so don"t have enough experience with this printer. My 1st project took 2 days to print. Not familiar with all the designing, slicing and analyzing models. so can't really give a good assessment of this printer but so far so good. Maybe in a month or so I will have a better idea.
