This project is launching soon.
Printy is an open hardware, build-it-yourself stereolithography (SLA) 3D printer kit. We believe that assembling your own printer, while learning about SLA, is a unique experience that celebrates the freedom to create. At Alch3my Labs, it is this freedom that drives us to help others learn, build, print, and modify.
SLA 3D printers are not only expensive, they are typically proprietary. For an enthusiast trying to find the right balance between low cost, high print quality, and open source design, the best advice one could offer has long been, "pick one." The current market has left the 3D printer community stranded in a disconnected ecosystem full of walled gardens.
With Printy, we aim to dismantle those walls and help reconnect that community. And what better way to share the joy of 3D printing than by first sharing the joy of building a 3D printer?
"Printy offers an inexpensive, open source DIY 3D printer kit, with a license that paves the way for future open source solutions."
