P3STEEL by HTA3D – DIY
This kit contains the necessary parts to build the P3STEEL redesigned by HTA3D.
Due to its performance this is the model we use for our printings.
Printing volume: 200x200x210 (XYZ).
Maximum printing speed recommended: 160x160x3 mm/s.
Compatible with all 1.75mm filaments that print under 300ºC (or 245ºC if you prefer the extruder with teflon).
Resolution: 6,25 microns in X and Y, 0.125 microns in Z.
Compatibility with nozzles from 0.2mm to 1mm (0.20 0.25 0.30 0.35 0.40 0.50 0.60 0.80 and 1.00). We recommend intermediate values if it is your first 3d printer (0.4 is ideal).
Every axis has its endstop clearly indentified in its position. In addition, we use endstops with LED indicator, already welded and wired.
Cable holder chain for X axis.
F624zz bearings for the X and Y axis and tensioners.
Assembly instructions detailed on video (see tab "Assembly Tutorial").
No dead zones, such as the upper side of X axis generated in others versions
Fixed the problem with the nut that collided Y motor
Fixed the problem for which the belt of the Y axis stayed bad alligned and generated unwanted tensions
Changed the parts that fastened the Y carriage bearings for others that don't deform the bearings, they can't lave their position and they are easier to install.
Mk8 Pulley, made of stainless steel, provides a very accurate and powerful extrusion
Hotend V6, ensures greater control over temperature, as well as outstanding performance
Its location provides us a great advantage in Z (210mm) and minimizes the oscillations
Layer fan included
Recommended retraction: from 1,7 to 30mm/s (0.057s)
Filament presence sensor included- experimental function (present in Marlin 1.1.0 RC2, a release candidate to stable).
Y Carriage lightened:
Lightened the weight of this part, decreasing the weight in 300 grams.
The Heatbed is now easily calibrated using only one hand, and thanks to the self locking nuts it will stay calibrated during many printings
Filament support integrated:
This component is very important as it has a considerable impact on the print quality. Our system includes bearings 608ZZ, which avoids filament jerks and provides a fluid filament supply from start to finish
The electronic is protected from accidental contact, and well refrigerated thanks to a 6cm diameter fan.
Case for the LCD (LCD included):
Forget about having the printer attached to the computer, you will print independently and will have a total control over the printing.
Protector for the power supply terminals, with switch:
- We have taken care of every detail of this kit, so with this simple component you can turn off and on the printer easily and safely.
Dimensions and weight of the 3D Printer:
The weight of the printer may vary depending on the chosen components and extras. For a basic configuration the weight is approximately 11.5 kg.
The outer dimension of the printer is approximately: 47x38x60 cm (having into account a standar coil of filament). We have to bear in mind also that the Y axis (38cm) moves, so it needs some space at the rear and at the front of the printer.

Assembly Tutorial (Spanish with english subtitles):
: We recommend reading the instructions in this tab completely, in addition to following the assembly from here since we have included additional information to the videos.
- Thermistors have now dupont connector, no soldering required.
- Stepper motors include cable connector on base. In addition, we ship them with the wires in the correct order for Ramps 1.4. So you do not have to change the order.
- ptimized, get a perfect first layer.
- Small bugs fixed, now more information is displayed on the LCD.
Frequently asked questions:
- How all fans are connected to the printer?
Fans are connected as follows:
- Layer f : Connected to D9 as indicated in the video
- an: connected directly to 12v, the connection can be done like on the video or connected to the output of 12v on Ramps 1.4
- Electronics Fan: 1.4
- The extruder motor does not move when I try to move it from the LCD.
Marlin has a protection to prevent accidental movement, so the extruder will not move with temperatures under 170°C. Try heating the hotend over this temperature and the extruder will move
