At the start of 2015 I saw an innocuous sponsored tweet in my twitter feed for a week by week build your own 3D printer. I’ve wanted one for a while but never really felt I could justify the cost on a toy… and then I saw the opportunity to build one myself and spread the cost… I used to spend more on coffee in a week so the justification was made and I signed up.
The printer I’m building is from 3D Create and Print who haven’t endorsed or sponsored anything in this blog. Each issue comes with a part for the printer and a magazine with a design, with occasional extra free gifts. I now have the first 11 issues, which includes the power adapter, so it’s probably a good time to start putting the parts together.
I’ll be filming how to assemble the printer along with a blog of any gotchas since, as anyone who has ever assembled flat pack furniture knows, sometimes just following the instructions isn’t always enough 🙂
