The "Logresse" is a 3D printer based on Irobri's P3-Steel, a rework of the Twelve Pro, itself being a redesign of Josef Prusa's I3.

P3-Steel's main frame structure, built from laser-cut 3mm steel ensures excellent rigidity and restricts the use of printed plastic parts.

The Logresse takes all these benefits, with improved rigidity. By additional metal parts, in particular those of the X axis and the carriage, it further reduces the plastic parts. It also provides additional room and ready-made holes to mount the power supply, various electronics, etc...

Parts Preview

The main ingredient of the machine is the chassis. The chassis can be cut into ordinary steel, galvanized steel, or stainless steel sheet. Since the laser cutting is quite expensive, it is advisable to group to reduce the cost.

Rectified steel bars (Stubs)

As there are only three millimeters to support them, they must be cut squarely, with no (or very little) chamfer.

  • Lengths:
    • X axis: 2x 410mm, 8mm ⌀
    • Y axis: 2x 360mm, 8mm ⌀
    • Z axis: 2x 320mm, 8mm ⌀
    • For a Greg's Wade extruder: 1x 19mm, ⌀ 8mm
