A 3D printer with fully-auomated bed leveling and tool height adjustment

This Maker will never have to think about leveling or Z height again.  3D printers are great pieces of Maker equipment, but they don’t work so well if the bed is not level with the extruder. Aligning these two elements together is commonly known as “bed leveling” or “tramming,” and, although simple in theory, needs to be […]

Skriware is a one-click 3D printer for your home

Skriware wants to make 3D printers as ubiquitous in our homes as more conventional 2D printers. Although 3D printers have become more accessible throughout the years, many of today’s affordable models still require some sort of 3D design expertise or CAD knowledge. Cognizant of this, Daniel Losinski set out to create a machine that was intuitive enough for anyone to use, despite their skill set or […]

Maker creates his own 3D printer for under $100

Rather than spend thousands of dollars on a 3D printer, this Maker made his own out of a DIY CNC machine and a 3D printing pen. 3D printers have come a long way over the past couple of years. However, even despite their ubiquity, many of these machines are still pretty darn expensive. The more impressive devices can run anywhere from […]

Build your own e-waste 3D printer for $120

As the saying goes: One man’s trash is another Maker’s 3D printer. Electronic waste (or e-waste for short) is an interesting side-effect of our high-tech world. Sure, your Pentium II computer was still pretty cool after it survived “Y2K,” but by 2010 or so it was probably in a landfill. Making this even more wasteful […]
