Lubrication-free and maintenance-free technologies and components from igus are already playing a central role in most assembly kits and blueprints for 3D printers. Tribologically optimised high-performance polymers ensure enhanced 3D printing technology and lower costs. With its modular motion plastics system, igus enables maximum design freedom for self-constructed 3D printers: drylin linear plain bearings are almost noiseless as no metal bearings are used, and dryspin® lead screw nuts ensure efficient and precise adjustment of the print bed. In addition, energy chains from igus increase machine operating times, as a result of which corkscrews and general cable failures are a thing of the past. Extremely constricted installation spaces, very small bend radii, short assembly times-profit from our wide range of products with no minimum order quantity.
Our engineers have developed a high-temperature printer especially for the processing of high-temperature filaments, the design data of which you can download for free and use for building your own high-temperature printer:
Do you require individual, wear-resistant components for building your 3D printer or are looking for solutions for quickly manufacturing abrasion-resistant prototypes or small volumes?
Then you can use the igus 3D printing service: simply upload CAD, select material and compare prices right away. The completed parts are ready to ship in one to three days. We also offer 3D printing materials for food contact, ESD protection, fire safety and further special properties.

3D printing and house construction? Do they go together? The example of the Dutch "Europe Building" in Amsterdam's marine quarter shows that it works. drylin® E linear robots and the engineering expertise of igus® made it possible.
The 3D printer from Cobot stands out due to its innovative design as well as its large installation space. Inside the printer, drylin® linear technology from igus® ensures completely lubrication-free and maintenance-free operation.
This 3D printer from EVO-tech GmbH uses a ready-to-install system solution from the motion plastics® specialist igus®. In addition to drylin® linear technology, e-chains® and chainflex® cables are used.
Kühling&Kühling GbR was looking for special products for a 3D printer that were to offer freedom from lubrication, outstanding robustness and good temperature resistance. The drylin® range of products makes it possible.
