TripodMaker is a 3D printer company headquartered in Belgium, Brussels. It was founded in January 2013 by engineer Pieter-Jan Vandendriessche.[1][2]

TripodMaker 3D printers use plastic to create physical parts, based on 3D computer files.

The company launched its first generation printer in September 2013. The printer is built on the open source delta robots platform.


TripodMakers are available as a DIY kit and pre-assembled and are of the delta 3d printer type. In contrast to other delta 3D printers, they feature a full aluminum rigid frame with super light moving parts to increase building speed. This results in several advantages for 3D printing. [3]

Like most consumer printers, the TripodMaker is compatible with polylactic acid (PLA).
