Which Voron Printer to Build

Here is a quick guide that can help you decide which Voron printer to build and to understand a little about the Voron naming convention.

Many get confused and think Voron 0.1 is an older version of the printer and Voron 2.4 is a newer version of the printer. In fact, this is not true. Voron 0 and Voron 2 are the model numbers of the machines and the number after the “.” is the version number. So for example Voron 2.4 means this is model Voron 2 and is on design version 4 now. The naming convention is slowly changing and moving away from numbers to actual named models starting with the Voron Switchwire which was announced Aug of 2020 and most recently the Voron 1.8 has been upgraded to the Voron Trident as of Aug 2021. Currently Voron family has 4 different models of 3d printers including the Voron Switchwire, Voron Trident, Voron 0, and Voron 2.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at 3D Lab Tech if you have any questions as the designs are constantly evolving.

Voron Switchwire

Voron-Switchwire-Kit-500x500

The Voron Switchwire is a based around the classic Mendel (aka bedflinger) design but modified to be a CoreXZ so the print head is belt driven in both the X and Z axis. With this modification they have eliminated the leadscrews that cause much of the problems found with these Mendel style printers. This also allows for very fast z movment speeds and less weight on the gantry by moving the X motor to the frame. The stiff 3030/3060 frame is just large enough to cover the entire swing of the Prusa 250×210 bed and allows for a natural enclosure with no additional modifications required.

Voron 0.2

Voron-0

The Voron 0.2 is a compact and high-performance 3D printer that is part of the Voron series of 3D printers. The Voron 0.2 has a small build volume of 120 x 120 x 120 mm, making it a desktop-sized 3D printer. Despite its compact size, it is designed to deliver excellent print quality and speed. The Voron 0.2 uses a CoreXY design with the build plate moving along the Z-axis. It features high-quality components like linear rails, Bondtech extruder parts, and a Revo Voron hotend by E3D.

The Voron 0.2 is a popular choice for rapid prototyping and personal projects due to its small footprint, high performance, and active community support.

Voron Trident

LDO-Voron-Trident-300mm-Kit-2

The Voron Trident is the successor to the Voron 1.8 and was officially released Aug 2021. This is a high-performance 3D printer that is part of the Voron series of 3D printers. The Voron Trident is a traditional CoreXY design 3D printer, where the build plate moves along the Z-axis while the gantry remains fixed. This design allows for large build volumes with options for 250x250x250mm, 300x300x250mm, or 350x350x250mm.

The Voron Trident is designed to be a high-performance, large-format 3D printer that is relatively simple to build compared to the more complex Voron 2.4 model.

Voron 2.4

Voron-2-LDO-Kit

The Voron 2 is a modified version of the traditional CoreXY design. The Voron 2.4 has a moving gantry design with a fixed build plate, which utilizes a unique four-point z-axis belt system and includes great features such as 4 point gantry tramming to align to the print surface and other unique features that can only be found on the Voron 2. Standard print sizes for this machine are 250x250mm, 300x300mm, and 350x350mm.

Voron Legacy

Voron-Legacy

The Voron Legacy is a tribute to the roots of the Voron project and the RepRap project. It’s beautifully crafted using the classic LM8UU rods and bearing design in a 230x230x230 size but still retaining the Afterburner toolhead. This is the only Voron that is not designed to be enclosed.

Average build price (Self Sourced): $1600 – $1900 CND

Voron Extruders and Variants

Voron Stealthburner

Voron-Stealthburner

The Voron Stealthburner is a toolhead that can be installed on all Voron 3D printers except the Vzero (See Mini Stealthburner below). It is an upgrade or an alternative to the Afterburner and integrates 1 x 50W heater cartridge, 1 x 30x30x10mm fan, and 2 x 5050 RGB LEDs. The Voron Stealthburner is designed to be a high-performance toolhead that can handle high-temperature materials and provide better print quality. It is a popular upgrade for Voron 3D printers and has a detailed assembly guide available on GitHub. The Voron Stealthburner is not a standalone 3D printer but rather a toolhead that can be installed on an existing Voron 3D printer

Voron Mini Stealthburner

The Mini Stealthburner is a toolhead designed for Voron 3D printers, specifically the V0.1 and V0.2 models. It is a smaller version of the Voron Stealthburner, which is an upgrade or alternative to the Afterburner toolhead. The Mini Stealthburner scales down the body of the Stealthburner to a size that fits into the V0.1 and V0.2 models. It is designed to handle high-temperature materials and provide better print quality. The Mini Stealthburner is available as a full kit from OneTwo3D, and there are also printable STL models available for download. The Mini Stealthburner weighs about 80-110 grams less than the Voron Stealthburner, depending on the version

Mini-Stealthburner

Voron Afterburner

Voron-Afterburner

Afterburner is not specifically an extruder, but the collective name for the Voron direct-drive interchangeable toolhead system. It is a toolhead designed for Voron 3D printers and is designed to handle high-temperature materials and provide better print quality.

Voron Galileo 2

LDO-Galileo-2-Extruder

Here you will find all of the files for the Galileo 2 projects, including a Voron Stealthburner drop-in Extruder (G2E), Z-Drives (G2Z) for V2-style printers (including V2, Micron, etc.), and a Standalone Extruder (G2SA) with mounting options for Orbiter-2.0-style or Sherpa-Mini-style mounts.

For those who are curious about what Galileo 2 offers over Galileo 1, here’s a short list of benefits:

  • Galileo 2 is a full redesign, moving to a 9:1 gear ratio and optimizing the gearbox design over Galileo 1. No parts from Galileo 1 are reused with Galileo 2.
  • Custom 9T stepper with a taller spur gear resulting in 20% higher contact surface area than existing 10T stepper designs, resulting in better wear characteristics and power transfer.
  • Proper meshing of gears due to number of stepper teeth being divisible by number of planets (9T sun / 3 planets), which gives even loading on the planets / sun gear and improves wear characteristics and power transfer. Previous designs with 10T steppers had uneven loading on the planet gears.

Voron Clockwork 2

The Voron Clockwork 2 is an extruder system designed for Voron 3D printers. Here are some key points about the Voron Clockwork 2:

  • The Voron Clockwork 2 is a repackaged BMG dual-gear extruder driven with a compact “pancake” NEMA17 motor. The LDO NEMA14 Motor (LDO-36STH20-1004AHG)
  • It is the successor to the original Clockwork extruder system for the Afterburner toolhead
  • It is compatible with the Voron Stealthburner toolhead and can be used to print high-temperature materials and provide better print quality
  • Bondtech offers an OEM IDGA Integrated Drive Gear Assembly Set for Voron ClockWork 2 extruder which can be found here

Overall, the Voron Clockwork 2 is an extruder system designed for Voron 3D printers that provides better print quality and is compatible with high-temperature materials

Voron Clockwork

Clockwork is the name given to the original extruder system for Afterburner. It is a repackaged BMG dual-gear extruder driven by a compact “pancake” NEMA17 motor. The Afterburner term is commonly used to refer to this extruder. The Bondtech LGX extruder will also fit perfectly inside the Afterburner in place of the Clockwork extruder. It is a great option for those who want a premade extruder solution that also carries a warranty as well.

Voron Pocketwatch

Pocketwatch is the Afterburner Clockwork repackaged smaller to be used on the V0 printer for a bowden style extruder.

Voron Mobius - M4

Voron-Mobius-M4

Mobius is the original Bowden extruder for Voron printers, designed to be mounted on the frame. Highly optimized, dual gear, and very effective for Bowden setups. Driven by a full-size or a compact “pancake” NEMA17 motor.

Voron Jetpack

Voron-Jetpack

Jetpack is a modified Mobius designed to be mounted on the X axis for a shorter Bowden. Was designed as an intermediary solution to reduce the bowden tube lengths before the introduction of Afterburner and has been superceded by the M4. It is driven by a compact “pancake” NEMA17 motor.
