Project R3D Large Format 3D Printer!

  • Project R3D, a 3D printer manufacturing startup from the Chicagoland area, has been working for the last year and a half to bring the next level of open-source hardware to market. When we set out our goal was not to reinvent the wheel but rather to solve the implementation problems that plague the market.
  • By sourcing and integrating only the best open-source components into one cohesive machine our Daedalus line of 3D printers was born. We achieved our goal with our flagship printer the Project R3D D2880 which features a large 2880 cubic inch build volume, auto bed leveling, WiFi, and a 7 inch touchscreen. It doesn’t stop there; along with schools and makerspaces, we stand by the fact that 3D printers are long-term investments. In order to extend the lifespan of our printers, the Daedalus line was designed to be modular with a three year frame to allow individual components to be upgraded as new technologies emerge.
  • Project R3D became a reality because of a makerspace and the sharing of knowledge among its members, and we continue to foster that sharing spirit by open sourcing our files. The members of the team come from a variety of backgrounds, including medical and engineering, and have nearly a decade of experience with 3D printing. We are a group of nerds working to better the 3D printing landscape by producing large, upgradable, easy-to-use printers at an affordable price point.
