Build your own open source 3D printer over the weekend

About This Video

  • Screw it together, wire it up, calibrate it, and print the world in 3D
  • Understand your 3D printer from inside out; tinker, play, modify, and experiment with it
  • Clear and professionally recorded videos that lead you directly to your goal and assist you in case things get difficult

In Detail

3D printers are designed to build solid three-dimensional objects of any shape using a digital model. This amazing technology will shape the future and as one of the first low-cost 3D Printers, RepRap have made this a democratic technology. RepRap stands for Replicating Rapid Prototyper, and the technology is capable of self-replicating most of its parts, which can then be used to build another RepRap printer. The open source movement made this revolution possible and you can be a part of it.

This video course teaches you how to make a 3D printer for yourself and calibrate and adjust it perfectly. You will get to know how to solve and prevent common problems and discover alternative solutions to tailor your 3D printer to your liking and needs. You will learn how to assemble parts for your 3D printer and build it with ordinary tools and skills. The course starts off with assembling of the Y-Unit and the XZ-Unit before moving on to the extruder and wiring. Next, you will be shown how to execute some simple calibrations and suddenly you're printing in 3D with your very own 3D printer. By the end of the video, you will be a junior 3D printing expert. This 3D printer used for demonstration in this course is especially designed for easy assembly and use, and gives you a head start in building your own 3D-printers for now and for the future.

    Comments about oreilly Building a RepRap 3D Printer:

    I just finished reviewed this series of videos and find they are clear, concise, complete and easy to follow for either a first time builder or someone with experience building a printer. Having built several iterations of RepRaps myself, I think the sequence and pace are excellent. Everyone that is going to build one, or teach other to build one would benefit from watching this series. You can check out the link here for a sample http://tinyurl.com/mmqcgtb

      Comments about oreilly Building a RepRap 3D Printer:

      The quality of the video blew me away. I was doubly impressed when it ran flawlessly on my iPad. Couldn't put it down. I'm really intrigued with RepRap in general but these guys did a class act in portraying the i3 Berlin. Even though I have two 3D printers already and will not probably make an i3, this helped me to consider the next steps in my own RepRap build.
