Overview

E-waste.png

This project consists in building a low cost 3D printer. This printer will be shown at technical shows or given to a school.

Mechanicals parts are based on CD readers salvaged from old computers. Motors in those could be steppers motors or DC motors. Even if steppers motors are easier to drive for this kind of application, we will chose DC motors because of the challenge.

Electronics will be completely developed by I-Grebot members (no Arduino here).

Embedded software will be developed by I-Grebot to be compatible with existing 3D printing software such as Cura, Repetier or Slic3r
