The Kraken 3D printer project is going open source.

The page below is for the original design, and as such, it's deprecated. If you wish to build one (wait a month till I upload all the files necessary) click here.

The Kraken 3D printer...

  • Is user friendly, at least in theory
  • Has a completely unique design
  • Is suitable for both for beginners, and professionals
  • Brings 3D printing closer to everyone, all around the world
  • Solves the common problems of desktop 3D printers
  • Has a modular design

Built to last

The Kraken is built to last. We think, that a 3D printer is not a vacuum cleaner, nor a microwave, or mobile, but something like a good computer, or a car. It has to last. And with the modular design, and high quality components the Kraken won't be outdated.

High speed

The Kraken 3D is a high speed 3D printer. Not only the printing process is fast, but also the preparations can be done in a few seconds. Just chose the model, your desired resolution, and let the software handle the rest!

Unique design

The  Kraken 3D is not just another "box" 3D printer! It features a uniquedesign, and multiple color options, so you can create your one of a kind printer!

No assembly required

The Kraken 3D comes assembled, out of the box. Just plug, and play!

Automatic calibration

The automatic calibration checks the print surface, and modifies the printing paths using the collected information. This helps the printer eliminate warping, achieve better print quality, and avoid failed prints.

Printguard

The unique printguard feature watches over the continous filament feed, pauses the print if the filament runs out, or breaks. Then the process can be continued after fixing the problem.

Goal

The kraken was a gigantic, squid-like, nordic mythical sea monster, who terrorized the sailors, and fishermen, and was feared for its mighty strength. But our Kraken 3D is a monster who does not destroy. Our mission is giving the freedom of building, and creating, to 3D printing fans all around the globe.

Advantages

Why should you choose the Kraken 3D instead of other printers? Just a few reasons: The Kraken 3D is compact, versatile, and affordable. The modular design allows you to turn any room to a complete manufacturing facility in seconds. Just place it on a table, a shelf, or the floor, plug it in, and start creating!

Q&A

-What is the Kraken 3D?

-The Kraken 3D is an affordable,modular desktop 3D printer.

-What is the difference between the Kraken and other 3D printers?

-Our printers have a unique structure, completely eliminating linear carriages. In addition they offer advanced features, such as automatic printbed calibration, or the printguard, so beginners can use it easily. The Kraken 3D is a modular 3D printer, which means that it can be upgraded easily in the future, with additional features, such as laser engraving, or chocolate extruder.

-Do I have to assemble my 3D printer?

-Yes. You also have to print a few parts for it, and CNC cut others. In it’s current status, it’s not for beginners.

-Do I have to know 3D modeling to use the Kraken?

-No, but it’s recommended to know at least the basics. Originally we planned the Kraken to have a 3D scanner, but the version released does not have one.

-What software does it use?

-The Kraken 3D printers use marlin as firmware, and you can use any host software and slicer you like.

-What modules will the Kraken have?

-The complete list of our current modules (with details, and estimated launch date) can be found here. Also, more modules are in development. We are also planning to release a documentation to help users to develop their own modules.

-Can I buy modules for my Kraken 3D separately?

-Absolutely. And we are planning to create more, and more features, so you will have more options to choose from.

-When can I buy it?

-Unfortunately we have to pause the development of the Kraken 3D printer. We hope we can resume someday… Until then, you can build your own!

-Why did you not launch the kickstarter campaign?

-Originally we intended to release the Kraken in 2015. We ran into technical difficulties, which compromised its original design, and functionality, as well as the starting price.
