3D Printer Build Camp
This article was originally published at The Clubhou.se
Five particularly focused campers built 3D-printers last week at theClubhou.se!
Bill Gray of Augusta University oversaw the camp, providing the design for the printers and using open-sourced code. The 3D-printers were built from scratch, using extruded aluminum for the frame and parts printed on other 3D-printers. Mix in some cut chrome rods, a power supply, wires, and other electrical components and our campers had their very own printer to take home at the end of the week.
Through building their own 3D-printer, campers went through assembly, wiring, soldering, and coding. This experience provided the opportunity to double-check work, trouble-shoot, and succeed!
Bill Gray is our resident expert for the monthly 3D-Printing Club the last Saturday of every month at theClubhou.se. Come check out what folks are developing with their 3D-printers!
