Our Stage 2 kits include all Aluminum Composite Material (ACM) components, 2020 extrusions, and hardware needed to start the mechanical frame structure of your newest large format 3d printer.


Our staged kit approach provides our customers the option to start off with a lower initial cost, then to choose the quality, brand, and style for the remaining components based on their budget and preferences without completely starting from scratch.


Please allow 2 weeks for packaging and shipment.
