Introducing the mapleMaker Mini V2 3D Printer

The mapleMaker Mini introduces you to the world of additive manufacturing and 3D printing. With your own 3D printer, your concepts and design ideas can be translated from computer drawings to physical objects in short period of time.

                    <p>The aim of this kit was to reduce costs and create an accessible,

hackable, upgradeable, and ultimately, user customizable 3D Printer. We believe that a 3D printer should evolve with it’s users needs and knowledge, and become a platform for any number of future upgrades and additions without the need for costly
re-works or additional components.

Check out www.maplemakermedia.com for more information on the printer, the build guide, information and to pre-order printed parts kits!


The mapleMaker Mini V2 features:

- A large 8"x6"x6" build volume

- All metal hot end (e3d Lite6)

- Completely 3D Printed frame and all major components

- Simplified frame construction

- Simplified printed parts components, all printable in 36 hours or less

- LCD control panel and electronics enclosures


Ultimately though, we want to empower the next generation of
designers, developers, and engineers by giving them the platform
and tools to suite their needs for today, tomorrow, and well into
the future.
