We want to make safer the use of 3D printers, at home, in the office, in the company.


Did you know that 3D printers emit fumes and ultrafine particles polluting the environment and harmful to health? And that the smells of plastic materials are unpleasant in our homes and offices?

We want to make safer the use of 3D printers, at home, in the office, in the company - kappakit


Do you want your 3D printer to become a safe object?

That's why we invented KappaKit, the protective fume hood for your 3D printer.

Do you want your 3D printer to become a safer object? - kappakit


Now you can stop worrying about 3D printer location. With KappaKit your printer can be integrated at home, in office, or in any other environment.

Enough with bad smells and health concerns, enough with worrying about accidental damages to the printer, maybe while tidying the office

That's why we invented KappaKit, the protective fume hood for your 3D printer.


What is KappaKit, exactly? What's its use?

KappaKit is a fume hood equipped with an exhaust fan with an activated carbon filter that captures fumes, fine dust and odours, and at the same time protects your printer.

A hood for the makers - portable, practical, lightweight. Simple and clever, right?

Just place KappaKit on your 3D printer and printing at home or in any enclosed space will no longer be a problem.

What is KappaKit, exactly? What's its use?


KappaKit is an acrylic "box" that is placed on the 3D printer as a hood. The lower part is empty, so it can be easily placed on top of the printer or removed in a few seconds.

On the top side it is equipped with a fan and an activated carbon filter.
When the printer is in operation, simply activate the fan to filter smoke, particles, and odours.

Its body is completely transparent, so you can control how the printing job proceeds when the printer is in operation.

The power outlets are on the rear panel.
The 3D printer is connected to the power supply inside of the hood.

The external power cord provides power to all components of the hood: the printer, the fan, and the LEDs.

KappaKit reduces the noise level of your printer when it is operating.


Higher print quality


KappaKit creates a stable environment for the 3D printer in operation, with a constant internal temperature, and a protection against currents that can affect print quality by altering times of solidification of the extruded material.

It integrates into the environment, making better use of space.

So you can make better use of the space all around, without worrying about how to place objects in the vicinity of the printer.

With KappaKit aesthetics is enhanced. Your printer 3D becomes more aesthetically pleasing.

With LED lighting, your printer is even more beautiful and functional, because it allows you to better control the creation of the objects when it is in operation.

Transparent or full colour

The standard version is transparent but you can request other colours to better integrate it to your environment. However, the front and back must be transparent in order to control the phases of printing and filament level of consumption.

Shipping

International orders will require an additional contribution for shipping.
Please keep in mind that international shipping rates (including customs duties) are not the same for all the countries, that's why we have decided to give you the possibility to choose between two options:
  1. to add the following shipping costs during the campaign: EU: $20
    USA: $60
    All other countries: $120
    For this option we consider International Expedite Shipping (FedEx/DHL/etc.)
  2. to perfect the order in a second step, after the campaign, to value the best solution for your needs. In this case the shipping costs will be paid separately and they will depend on your location and weight of the parcel (Choice Recommended).

Compatible Printers List

KappaKit is compatible with all 3D desktop printers.
But if the internal space of your KappaKit exceeds 50 x 48.5 x 48.25 cm (19.69 x 19.09 x 19 inches), and consequently its total acrylic surface is greater than 1.26 m2 (square meters), you will need to add an extra contribution to the campaign price, that will depend on how much extra material your KappaKit requires.
