Make your imagination a reality.


Unprecedented possibilities. Unthinkably simple machine.

Don't let the radically simple design of the Buildini 3D Printer fool you. This powerful machine is made for 3D printing big beautiful objects. The minimal design makes it intuitive to use and allows you to maximize your printing power. The modular components make maintenance a breeze. The power of the Buildini™ is in its simplicity.

Bigger. Stronger. Faster.

The 0.6mm nozzle on the Buildini is 50% bigger than the industry standard. When combined with our massive 2.849 ft³ of build volume, you now have the power to print big objects stronger and faster.

Open For Experimentation.

You have the possibility for serious experimentation with the Buildini. The open mechanics were deliberately designed with experimentation in mind. Print plenty of prototypes at once. Clamp fabric to the build platform to print fantastical fashions. Tape down your sketchbook and create digital drawings. The possibilities for experimentation are endless with the Buildini.

Completely Considered.

We believe in quality. It's why we meticulously manufacture the Buildini in small batches. It's why every screw, motor, wire, weld, and connector on the Buildini has been carefully considered and is the best in class.

All Metal Construction.

Designed to last, all structural components are made from aerospace-grade aluminum and premium carbon steel finished with a long-lasting performance powder coat. If that wasn't enough, every screw, nut, and bolt is 316 stainless steel with a high chromium content, making it extremely resistant to corrosion. This adds up to years of printing without having to worry about rust, wear, or tear.

Million Motion Cables

When it came to cabling on the Buildini we went to the extreme lengths to ensure low wear and long life. The resilient and reliable performance guarantees tensile strength. The mechanically high quality and optimized material compounds are rated for over 1 million motions. The same cabling is used in cranes, warehouses, machining units, wood processing, and the packaging industry throughout the world.

Cutting-edge Carbon Fiber

The Buildini build plate is made from an Aerospace Grade 3K matte weave carbon fiber. This highly rigid and lightweight material guarantees a super sturdy surface and allows you to print faster. Need more proof? This high performance material is used by unmanned aerial vehicles and missions to space!

Super Silent Steppers

Who said big ideas have to be loud? The unbelievably quiet operation of the Buildini is thanks to four integrated Trinamic motor drivers. These tiny chips are loaded with some serious smarts and a powerful punch capable of 1/256th microsteps and sensorless homing. This allows for higher resolution prints and less maintenance.

Tough Torx

We selected torx screws for the reason they were invented: extremely high torque tolerance. This means that even under the heaviest of use, these screws hold tighter and last longer without adjustment than those other screws.

Perfect Print Platform

Designed to provide maximum print adhesion and effortless print removal, the Perfect Print Platform is a specially formulated polymer surface. The high visibility grid makes it easy to measure the size of your object at a glance.

Superior Slicing Software

You can create perfect prints with the most powerful 3D printing software available. Simplify3D® comes bundled with every Budmen Buildini™ and provides complete control over your print settings, making it easier than ever to create incredible high-quality 3D prints.

What will you make?



We built the Buildini as a reliable and large format 3D printer for our own use in our workshop.

Within the walls of Budmen Industries, experimentation is the name of the game. It is not uncommon to find a paste printhead 3D printing pastry on one machine while another whirls away 3D printing tests on fabric swatches. Needless to say, this sort of constant experimentation can be very demanding on a 3D printer.

Our objective was to build a 3D printer that could meet the demands of extreme experimentation, print big beautiful objects, and make maintenance fast and easy.

We started from the ground up with the essential functions, challenging the industry’s traditional ideas and construction techniques. We obsessively pushed for a simpler, more reliable machine. Thousands of hours of experimentation and refinement resulted in the Buildini, a 3D printer that is minimal, modular, and maintainable.

We hope that you use this tool to experiment and discover its possibility.
