The main objective of the paper is to propose a new design for microcontroller web based 3D printer. In particular, the aim is to design a board which holds these parts, Arduino , Raspberry Pi microcontrollers and power electronics. The technology of the Fused Diffusion Modelling (FDM ) will be applied in the design .The newly proposed system will be used to improve the current design and solve overheating problems that present in these devices. A flexible3D printer design is proposed in this paper to provide the user with a real control and video monitoring through a browser from anywhere. The Implementations based on having a reduced size computer Raspberry Pi which could replace a PC and printer server integrated in printer case with all benefits generated such as the Mobility. So, by adding such helpful features, the 3D printer will deliver more flexibility in use to the end user and it pretends to do it at more affordable pricing to bring this new technology to a larger number of users and to everyday uses.
