Imagine you could create any object
you want - right at home.

- Need a stylish case for your electronics? - A unique toy for your child? - Maybe a cup or a cool lampshade?

Whatever you fancy - here’s the first step - a machine that transforms digital designs into real objects.
Pirx is a high quality 3D printer that is both affordable and reliable.
A perfect tool to bring your ideas into material world.

Bed

Is driven along the z-axis by trapezoid screw allowing 100 micron layer height.

Hot-end

The nozzle and the heating block made of one piece of brass with ceramic cartridge heater.

Wooden frame

Lightweight chassis made of plywood is stiff and sturdy.

Gantry

Stiff xy gantry designed from scratch to fit 3D printing needs ensures high precision.

Printing Process

How does it work?

3D printing is achieved using an additive proces, where successive layers of plastic are laid down in different shapes.

See it for yourself:

Project

A 3D model is built using CAD software. Exported to popular STL format it is preprocessed and transfered to Pirx. Voila! Ready to print!

Material

Filament of heated thermoplastic polymer is squeezed out like toothpaste from a tube. The model is produced by extruding small beads of material to form layers.

Print

The desired object is printed layer after layer until it is complete. Ta-da! You have just produced something using your own personal factory. Enjoy!

Printed on Pirx

Well, the real question is - what are you looking for? There are a lot of designs available onvarious websites, and if you can create digital 3D models yourself, well then sky’s the limit!

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes. Printer comes assembled and everything is included - software, cables, power adapter and a bit of bonus plastic as well! You can start printing immediately.

Don’t worry. We will supply you with a detailed tutorial on how to install software, download or even create digital designs. Remember that you can contact us and we are always there to point you in the right direction.

That’s the best part. We have BIG plans. World peace, colonization of Mars, controlled nuclear fission, universal constructor, nanobots, you name it!

But we have to start small so we have already begun to work on a marketplace for digital designs integrated with our devices and our software.

We are also looking at the next 3D printing technology to come - projector-based stereolitography.

We have put our hearts into the 3D printing movement. Sure, we want to make money but we also want to be fair to our customers. Most of the 3D printers out there are horribly overpriced and there is nothing innovative or great about them.

We sincerely want to build the best machine ever - and we want everyone to be able to use it. Progress is expected only when technology is widely applied. We like progress. A lot.

Keep in mind that improvements in manufacturing technology open many doors for future inventions. We love when imaginary technologies from sci-fi movies come true. That’s why.

Any questions?

Just send us a message. We’ll be happy to assist you.
