Proteins (earlier options, mostly derived from original Prusa i3 printed part designs)
In RepRap jargon, a protein is a printed part, i.e. anything that you need to make a RepRap, which a RepRap can print itself.
The P3Steel printer is a derivative work of the Prusa i3 and uses a subset of the Prusa i3 proteins.
All STL files listed in this section are available in this GitHub repository.
This part allows the attachment of the endstops to the frame. You will need 3 for a basic setup (homing axes) and 6 if you want to sense both ends of each axis.
Different endstops can be attached to the P3Steel printer. Here we list some options.
|Endstop 1||Endstop 2||Endstop 3||Endstop 4|
|Sensor type||Mechanical||Magnetic||Magnetic||Not Specific|
X-Axis motor end
This part holds the X-Axis motor, fastens the Smooth rods of the X-Axis, holds two LM8UU bearings for the left Z-Axis smooth rod and the nut for the left Z-Axis threaded bar.
Different X-Axis motor ends can be fitted to the P3Steel printer. Here we list some options.
|X Motor End 1||X Motor End 2||X Motor End 3||X Motor End 4|

X-Axis idler end
This part holds the X-Axis idler, fastens the Smooth rods of the X-Axis, holds two LM8UU bearings for the right Z-Axis smooth rod and the nut for the right Z-Axis threaded bar.
Different X-Axis idler ends can be fitted to the P3Steel printer. Here we list some options.
|X Idler End 1||X Idler End 2||X Idler End 3||X Idler End 4|

The moving part of the X-Axis, I'ts binded to the X-motor by a timing belt and slides from left to right carrying the extruder and hot end.
Different X-Axis carriages can be fitted to the P3Steel printer. Here we list some options.
|X Carriage 1||X Carriage 2||X Carriage 3||X Carriage 4|

Y-Axis belt holder
This part goes attached to the bottom of the Y-Axis carriage, I'ts bonded to the Y-motor by a timing belt allowing the Y-Axis carriage to slide front to back carrying the build platform (heated bed).
The design of the P3Steel printer includes an steel part to serve as Y-Axis belt holder but plastic belt holders can be fitted too.
|Y Belt holder 1||Y Belt holder 2|
Different extruders can be fitted to the P3Steel printer. Some fit straight and some need especial X-Carriages or adaptation. The chosen extruder will require specific Vitamins so you should have clear what hot end will be used, then choose the correct extruder variant and then its vitamins (motors, bearings, hobbed bolt/pulley,etc)
Some extruder examples listed.

Y-Axis Idler end
This is a simple Y Ider to replace the steel support. Two screws make possible the adjustment of the Y Belt tension.

P3Steel Proteins (newer list of suggested printed parts)
This is a list of suggested printed parts for the P3Steel v2.0 or v2.01, by AndrewBCN. These parts have all been proven to work with the P3Steel, they should all be relatively easy to print and do not require any heavy "refinishing" work.

Experimental Printed Parts
There are experimental parts not (fully) proven here.
