The iTopie is a derivative of the very popular Prusa i3,
the main purpose of this machine is to save assembly time, especially for workshops. The second goal is to increase rigidity. 100% MDF structure seems to be the best solution, rigid, cheap, no vibration and if we accept that a 3D printer is a CNC with an extruder, then this machine becomes more self-replicant.

The plastic parts of the X and Z axes are compatible with the Prusa i3.

*If you bought a low cost import or acrylic frame Prusa i3 Rework 3D printer and want to upgrade your frame to something better, this is the kit.

This design is stronger, more durable and resists heat compared to an acrylic or plastic frame.    This frame is made from MDF 1/2" (~12mm). It's resistant to warping due to heat, delamination and cracking.  The improved frame design eliminates the threaded rod and bolt frame replaces it with a frame designed for maximum stability.   This allows for faster, more accurate prints in many cases as vibration issues with a threaded rod and acrylic frame design are minimized.
