3D Print Laboratory (3DPrintLab)

In the 3D Print Laboratory, we print on RepRap printers, create own projects and we often spend most of our free time there.

3D RepRap printers

These are machines to which you can send a 3D model designed, for instance, in CAD, Blender or in any other modelling tool, and after a while you will have a real object that you can actually hold in your hand.
The printer is so small that you can put it on your desk, you can build it yourself at a cost of a few thousand crowns and it is completely open source – from firmware to device drivers to hardware. It can even produce a part of itself. This is no science fiction, this is reality!
There are many types of 3D printers that are based on different principles and technology. Some are worth millions, some can be built at home in the evenings for a fraction of the price. The reason we were so impressed by the RepRap printers was that it’s a free project to which anybody can contribute and from which anybody can benefit.

What we do

In the 3D Print Laboratory, we spend most of our time looking after printers for the course 3D Printing (BIE-3DT). This work never ends, and it includes various tweaks and fixes to make the printers as reliable as possible.
At the same time, we are developing and building FDM 3D printers to be used by the laboratory and its members. Also OpenRC vehicles were built in the laboratory – namely a three armed drone and a formula car.


RebeliX 3D printer

The laboratory has 16 RebeliX printers; 14 of them are intended for teaching in the course 3D Printing (BIE-3DT).

Prusa 3D printers

The laboratory has the world-famous Prusa MK2 MMU printers with the option of multi-color or multi-material printing. We also have the Prusa MK3.


For the printing of large models, we have a printer of our design in the laboratory named GOLEM. This printer is capable of printing up to an 80cm cube.
