3D Printer

Yeah, so I built a 3D Printer.

I have been fascinated by 3D printers for a while now, I’ve always wanted to build one. The notion that you can think of ANYTHING and make it a reality AT YOUR DESK with not that much of an effort – if any, blew my mind.
I read a lot and followed some really cool project only to be overwhelmed by the complexity and scale of the project (which turned out not to be that complicated), thinking that if I start I might get bored or worse, stuck, and leave it half finished.

So what made me go through with it?
One day, I was sitting at a friend-of-a-friend’s house talking about projects and DIY. I mentioned how I always wanted to build a 3D printer or a CNC machine and Gal, the one who lives there, said he built one a few years back and missed it. We decided to build mine together.
He also mentioned he wanted to get into programming with Arduino, with which I was quite familiar, so he helped me choose components for the printer and I helped him build an Arduino starter-kit. Win-Win.

Here I will share my journey, thoughts, lessons and updates revolving around building, maintaining and operating my 3D printer. Enjoy.
