Hi, I am a mechanical engineering student and have been designing various different objects and inventions in cad. The college I attend currently has two forms of 3D printing/ rendering of objects. The first and an older unit is a powder printing machine, and a newer 3D printing machine that uses spools of plastic material to print 3D objects. I always wanted a printer of my own and now I have one on the way. The printer I will be using is a Printrbot Plus 3D Printer with a 8x8x8inch build volume. Printrbot offers this as a Kit or Preassembled. Sooner or later I would like to design my own 3D printer and open my own store manufacturing and selling my printers. I will try and post everyday as soon as I get my printer. If anyone has designed anything and would like me to print it or just would like to share their designs just post a comment.
