Build Your Own High Resolution, Low Cost 3D Printer

Over the past years, 3D printing has opened out amazing opportunities to every builder and maker out there to become her/his own independent producer and designer. I have always been amazed by the idea that I can design and print my own parts. I live in a small town and there is only one 3D printing service for miles—and that business definitely takes advantage of their location because it is NOT cheap to get parts printed with them. So, instead of paying a fortune for all the parts I needed, I thought of designing and building my very own 3D printer so that I could print parts whenever I wanted! Conventional 3D printer prices start at about $250 and go up and up! I was able to make one for about $87 with the same functionalities and resolution. It took me about one and a half years to design and build this printer.
I’ve tried to make this as detailed as possible with measurements for all parts. Hope you enjoy making it as much as I did! This project is for all the makers and innovators who like being independent and having fun. Enjoy! :)”
