  6. 6. The parts of a 3D printer Choose a controller board: R2C2 – Single board design RAMPS – RepRap Arduino Mega Polulu Shield Sanguinololu – single board design based on arduino The aluminium frame provides a stable printer frame Linear bearings for the parts moving in the XYZ axis Imagine in a new dimension – 3D Printing 6
  7. 7. The parts of a 3D printer... Stepper motors used to provide motion along the printing axis and to drive the filament to the printing head The printing head Buddaschnozzle v2.0 Try to get hold of another printer J Imagine in a new dimension – 3D Printing 7
  8. 8. Material sources •  You can find the part list and instructions to assemble a Prusa I3 model here •  http://reprap.org/wiki/Prusa_i3_Build_Manual •  The best deals on bearings, power supply, heat-bed, nozzle… are found on ebay •  You can find complete printer kits already packed in many online shops •  www.3dprinters-shop.com Imagine in a new dimension – 3D Printing 8
  9. 9. How to do your 3D objects? •  There exist several applications that you can use to design 3D models: •  •  •  •  •  •  Solidworks Autocad Sketchup Autodesk 123D Blender FreeCAD In Hack-a-Day blog you can find thorough introduction tutorials for each of the cited applications Just google: “Hackaday 3D Printering: Making a Thing” Imagine in a new dimension – 3D Printing 9
