On a mission to make printmaking accessible to everyone.

Open Press Project is the first 3D-printed etching press ... and won‘t be the last! Everyone who has access to a 3D printer can produce their own fully functional DIY press and print their own etchings, dry-points or engravings. Woodcuts, linocuts and other relief printing techniques work, too! The plans are free, so with only 5 € of material costs it is also the world’s most inexpensive press!

All of the STL files are licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International License, so you're free to copy, share, and edit the press for non-commercial purposes. I would love to see your redesigns, adjustments and improvements to the press! After more than 300 years of nonexisting innovation in the design of a printing press it's time to take it to the next level.
