This is the do it yourself kit variant of the Felix 3.0 made by FELIXprinters (Netherlands). (A fully assembled version is also available here)

  • Dual Head Option (recommended), now print in two colours and print with soluble support.
  • More reliable printing of large object due to improved heat bed which is now an aluminum sandwich construction with very even heat distribution of heated bed and greater dimensional accuracy.
  • Stand-alone printing out of the box, includes display screen and SD card, no constant need of a computer.
  • Now incorporates injection molded parts for increased rigidity, longevity and higher speed printing.
  • New improved V4 Hot End improves print quality and now has a removable nozzle tips for easy maintenance.

NEW innovations

The FELIX 3.0 brings many new things to the table compared to its predecessor.


The benefits:

More reliable printing. Our newly designed heated bed is flatter, lighter and stiffer, resulting in even better print adhesion for larger prints.

Higher quality at higher speeds. Due to increased stiffness of injection molded parts, you can print at higher precision and higher accelerations.

Dual extrusion. Print your objects with two colors or with special water soluble support material.

Last but not least, you can upgrade your own printer to the latest revision. Upgrade kits will be available.


New Electronics

  • * Industrially fabricated electronics, which increases reliability
  • * Only high quality components used, which require less cooling. Fan is not required anymore.
  • * Prepared for dual extrusion.
  • * Z-axis fine-adjustment, more robust and repeatable.

This is the fully assembled variant of the Felix 3.0 made by FELIXprinters (Netherlands). (A complete DIY Kit version is also available here). This printer now includes a 1kg roll of PLA filament.

The Felix 3.0 3D Printer is an fast, durable and reliable. Years of experience in the field of high precision mechatronics and industrial automation have led to this design. Stand out features include:

  • Ultra Fine Resolution. This printer can print down a Z height of 0.05mm thats 50 mircrons!
  • Large Build Size. It includes a 255 x 205 x235mm build platform in single head mode or 240 x 205 x 235mm in dual head mode.
  • Rigid construction. The aluminum frame is strong can withstand the high accelerations of the moving parts. This equates to high quality prints
  • Quiet operation. Due to the rigid frame, bearing type and low noise fans you can enjoy your prints come to life in peace.
  • Reliable. Engineered with durability in mind, which keeps you printing for many many hours.
  • Easy to calibrate.The components are not mounted in an over defined way, this gives you short calibration time and get's you printing faster.
