Hydra Research Nautilus 3d Printer$2,500.00
ACCESSIBLE, RELIABLE, OPEN SOURCE, INDUSTRIAL-GRADE 3D PRINTING
A fully enclosed build environment capable of high temperatures allows the Nautilus to print engineering materials like ABS, ASA, Nylon, PCABS, Vinyl, and more with a greatly reduced chance of warping compared to a typical open frame 3D printer.
The enclosure keeps unpleasant smells generated by printing certain materials from escaping as easily. The Nautilus also has a vent on the back with mounting for fume extraction or filtration to reduce the risk of harmful micro-plastic particles escaping into your work environment.
With genuine E3D hotend components, Bondtech™ extruder gears, Igus self lubricating motion system, Gates Power Grip timing belt, and high-end Duet 32-bit electronics, you can count on the Nautilus for years to come.
The magnetically attached flexible print surface on the Nautilus makes it quick and easy to remove parts. No more scraping and prying to get parts off, which can damage the part and the print surface during the process.
Always have the best print surface for a given material to ensure good bed adhesion and a successful print. A PEI print surface is included with the Nautilus, while a BuildTak Original one will be sold separately with the potential for even more options becoming available in the future.
Quickly change between nozzle sizes with magnetic Tool Cartridges.
The standard X 400 Tool Cartridge that comes with every Nautilus is equipped with E3D Nozzle X, a specially plated tool steel nozzle designed to guarantee a long lifetime, even when printing abrasive materials like carbon fiber or glass composites.
The Nautilus comes standard with a X 400 Tool Cartridge for a great balance between speed and detail. Additional tool cartridges for more specialized applications are sold separately.
Expand your printing capabilities with the Nautilus Tool Cartridge ecosystem.
B 250 Tool Cartridge — for high-detail.
X 400 Tool Cartridge — for high-speed and strength.
Thanks to the Nautilus’ modular Tool Cartridge system, the possibilities are endless and the ecosystem does not stop here…
Z Axis Lead Screw for TAZ$82.50
Featuring a large, 12 mm diameter, these metric lead screws move the Z-axis smoothly and reliably. When building a DIY RepRap 3D printer, choose a metric Z-axis lead screw to allow for all layer height increments. Each lead screw has machined ends, one sized for a 608 bearing, and the other side sized for 5mm stepper motor couplers.
Designed as a direct replacement for the TAZ 6, this lead screw is compatible with the LulzBot TAZ 5.

Lulzbot 3d Bio Printer FRESH Certified – Coming soon for PRE-ORDER$7,500.00
The LulzBot Bio is a FRESH certified bioprinter ready for use with bioinks, unmodified collagen, and other soft materials for pharmaceutical/cosmetic testing, tissue engineering, and regenerative medicine.
The LulzBot Bio combines versatility with exceptional print quality in a compact and easy-to-use bioprinter. Certified for FRESH printing, the Bio includes everything you need to get started printing bioinks, unmodified collagen, and other soft materials. With an Open Source design and less than an hour of out-of-the-box setup time, the Bio’s capabilities can grow as fast as your innovation.
Bioprinting is revolutionizing pharmaceutical development, cosmetic testing, tissue engineering, and regenerative medicine. 3D bioprinted tissues can be used to mimic in vivo conditions, enabling organizations to better predict efficacy and toxicology of potential drugs early on in the drug discovery process.
What have they printed with a LulzBot Bio?
- Functional tissues with contractility (includes heart tissues)
- Collagen heart valve that can support pulsatile flow
- Have not tested in animals yet but have simulated blood flow
- Beating ventricle made of human heart cells
- Multi-scale vasculature (from 5mm down to 100 μm)
- Was able to support cells living around that vessel network
- Artery trees
- Sodium Alginate – Rapid prototyping material derived from brown seaweed.
- Translucent therefore requires dye to be seen when suspended in water/alcohol.
- LifeSupport must be mixed with calcium chloride 0.1% solution to enable crosslinking.
- Collagen – Highly important protein in the body.
- The LulzBot Bio is ready to print unmodified collagen. This is very important as we are closer to mimicking human physiology.
- Pure collagen can be printed down to 20 μm.
- Can be crosslinked with a PH change via addition of acetic acid (main component of vinegar apart from water).
- Cells –
- Usually these are stem cells.
- Can only be printed down to 100 μm needle. Smaller needles will impact cell viability.
- Cells need to touch each other to maintain cell viability.
- After printing they must be placed in cell culture incubator at 37°c
- More to come: Fibrin, hyaluronic acid, termosets
