Tell us briefly about your project. Is it a work of art or does it serve another function?

This device is a budget option 3D printer. Quality and speed is not worse than the factory counterparts, and the cost is much less. Repeat this printer is able to anyone who would like to have at home such a helper. Print Area 300mm 300mm 300mm, which will print your every desire.

When did you start working on this project and how long did it take you to complete?

Work on this project was started in April 2015. From the first drawings to the first launch less than two months. In June, the printer has printed its first part.

What was your goal in building this project?

The main task for me was to create a low-cost device. In order to be everyone could repeat this structure at home. All items are printed on the 3D printer that facilitates assembly. I printed two sets of parts for assembly and handed them to two people who want to replicate this device. They promised to do the same when they will gather the printer. So that the chain can reach up to you.

Does your project help to solve a problem? If so what problem?

The project to build low-cost 3D printer makes it possible for many people to have such a device at home. All material for the assembly of the printer is in the public domain.

What makes your idea unique?

The project is unique in that the device consists of a maximum of available materials, but thus corresponds to the design of more expensive counterparts.

In what capacity are you using bearings and what type of bearings?

All guides are made on the basis of linear bearings LM8UU. A total of 11 pieces. Also in the design of the extruder, I used the 3 radial bearings 608z. And for the belt tension came radial bearings B623ZZ.

What is the most important thing you want people to know about your project?

Anyone can repeat the device having no more than $ 200.

How will you use the $5,000 prize?

It would be a good impetus for the creation of new projects and the acquisition of the necessary components.
