The RepRapPro Huxley 3D printer is an indispensable tool I built as a kit and find myself using quite a lot.
I previously owned a Makerbot Thing-o-Matic, but needed something more. The RepRapPro Huxley, sold by RepRapPro, was my first pick. Its small desktop foot print, large build volume, and the fact that is a RepRap is what gravitated me toward it.
I got my Huxley printing in a mere two days from kit form and I time-lapsed the whole thing from above. Check it out.
Here are a few upgrades I printed on my Huxley, for the Huxley itself.
- Zip Tie Type Bearing Holders (y-axis)
- Bed Strain Relief
- Outer-edge 120mm x 38mm fan mount
- Clip-on power connector bracket
- Vitamin Free-ish 73mm Spool Roller
Among these and a few other addons/upgrades, added later in the printer’s life were a glass heat bed, GT2 belts and pulleys, and a new custom X-carriage that I made.
