The Bukito has been designed to be robust, reliable, fast and travel worthy. By using the aluminum V-slot slider system from Openbuilds, the authors have reduced the complexity of the whole printer’s frame while maintaining great rigidity. Since the sliders and structure are combined, it simplifies construction but keep things very precise. Weighing about as much as a laptop (under 6lbs / 2kg) and having a light but strong aluminum frame, it is convenient to be taken everywhere.
The printer also features an inherent factor of having a rigid construction and a very light weight extruder system.The authors have designed the Bukito’s special Bowden style extruder system to be as short and light as possible to give it speed and accuracy. Having an all metal nozzle setup allows the Bukito to handle many types of materials with out much risk of damaging the nozzle.
