The Prusa iteration 2 modelled in Blender 2.5. All the STLs parts of the official Prusa 2 have been imported into Blender. All the vitamins have been designed in OpenScad, exported to STL and imported into Blender.

This model is very useful for generating documentation. The users can explore the design to see how the different parts are attached. In addition, animations can be generated in Blender.

Blender is a multi-platform open-source high-quality application. Although it has not been explicitly designed for Engineering, is rather easy to import STLs parts and create complex 3D models.

This awesome Sir and actually probably the best a Free and gratis opensource and crossplattform world have to offer for now!

The otherwise closest would be FreeCAD project* which has a assembly-module in the works. But to quote Montgomery Scott; "the right tools, for the right job", which isnt necessarily true. I mean, uploading this on some 3d-modeling sites and I'm sure there are some brilliant/crazy person giving it a go, as it's served on a plate like this!


Hi DanielPublic! Thanks for your suggestion! Yes, I know freecad. I really like this tools. I have used it a lot in another designs, such as the miniskybot. For example, this picture was done with Freecad


But this time I wanted to try Blender... and I realized that it was very easy to use for mounting parts. Although it is true that Blender is not a CAD application.
