Would you like to manufacture anything you want by yourself?
To turn abstract digital design into a solid object?
Meet Pirx and discover the endless
possibilities of 3d printing.
We were lucky to test Pirx 3D in Materialination for a couple of weeks. Pirx is a cool 3D printer with awesome printing quality and nice design. The team behind the project is just the best! Congratulations guys!

Whatever you fancy - here’s the first step - a machine that transforms digital designs into real objects.
Pirx is a high quality 3D printer that is both affordable and reliable.
A perfect tool to bring your ideas into material world.
Is driven along the z-axis by trapezoid screw allowing 100 micron layer height.
The nozzle and the heating block made of one piece of brass with ceramic cartridge heater.
Lightweight chassis made of plywood is stiff and sturdy.
Stiff xy gantry designed from scratch to fit 3D printing needs ensures high precision.
3D printing is achieved using an additive proces, where successive layers of plastic are laid down in different shapes.
See it for yourself:
A 3D model is built using CAD software. Exported to popular STL format it is preprocessed and transfered to Pirx. Voila! Ready to print!
Filament of heated thermoplastic polymer is squeezed out like toothpaste from a tube. The model is produced by extruding small beads of material to form layers.
The desired object is printed layer after layer until it is complete. Ta-da! You have just produced something using your own personal factory. Enjoy!

We use PLA plastic filament and we will be glad to help you get some.
Don’t worry. We will supply you with a detailed tutorial on how to install software, download or even create digital designs. Remember that you can contact us and we are always there to point you in the right direction.
That’s the best part. We have BIG plans. World peace, colonization of Mars, controlled nuclear fission, universal constructor, nanobots, you name it!
But we have to start small so we have already begun to work on a marketplace for digital designs integrated with our devices and our software.
We are also looking at the next 3D printing technology to come - projector-based stereolitography.
We have put our hearts into the 3D printing movement. Sure, we want to make money but we also want to be fair to our customers. Most of the 3D printers out there are horribly overpriced and there is nothing innovative or great about them.
We sincerely want to build the best machine ever - and we want everyone to be able to use it. Progress is expected only when technology is widely applied. We like progress. A lot.
Keep in mind that improvements in manufacturing technology open many doors for future inventions. We love when imaginary technologies from sci-fi movies come true. That’s why.
Just send us a message. We’ll be happy to assist you.
