The key innovation of the Hephestos is its cable-tidy. This enables us to position the cables at the top and rear of the device, ensuring they don´t interfere with the printer movements.
We have also achieved greater protection against burns by eliminating the heated bed and adding a protector to the extruder (the same one we designed for the Witbox). And since there is no heated bed, the energy consumption of the printer barely reaches 60 W.
We have chosen PLA as the printing material, as it can be used in a domestic environment without having to worry about odours (unlike other materials such as ABS). What´s more, PLA is a material that provides the best results in a short space of time.
