Please note - this is currently offered as a Beta kit. Read the full description before making a purchase.
Flat shipping for Rook Kits in the USA is $10, Worldwide Shipping is calculated depending on location and service selected.
While core components are there and the BOM is fully supported, it is likely refinements will be made and things like fasteners may not be fully adequate for your particular configuration. Rook kit will ship in standard packaging rather than the Premium Rook Packaging we are planning to use in further batches. We will provide a $10 gift card to all builders of this batch to offset any cost of fasteners or other items you may require. We kindly ask that if anything comes up or you have suggestions to please let us know. Kits will ship out in micro-batches of approximately 5 each week. Expect a slight delay in shipment as we work on these batches. Printed parts are not included as a configuration option in this batch. Once the beta is complete, kits will be stocked and shipped at time of ordering like other products in our store.
West3D introduces the Rook 3D Printer with it's signature Configurator. Build a Rook that is uniquely yours. Want motors that will make this thing be the first to cross the finish line? Sure, why not! Want to make this direct drive? We got you!
The Rook MK1 combines the high octane speed of a CoreXY printer with a fun and affordable DIY project that will leave you satisfied you made the choice. A open air printer, it does exceptionally well with the most common types of filaments used today (e.g. PLA and PETG). This is a great project printer and one you can enjoy with friends and family!
Please note: We offer the ability to purchase Printed Parts and/or a Raspberry Pi (or alternative) in your configuration selections. The default configuration does not include these items. You may require additional tools, and should have useable knowledge of electronics, AC power, and wiring.
A special thanks to Rolohaun, who both designed and created the Rook as well as fostered a community of modders and innovators who have taken the designs to the next level. Our adventure into building the Rook and offering this one of a kind kit would have gone nowhere without the introduction, guidance and mod support of Gulsifer. We also must send heartfelt gratitude to our favorite media personality, ZombieHedgehog, who without his encouragement, fine build video, and build advice this wouldn't have been possible.
