Tech Culture: 3D Printer Build Week: Day 1

3:22 /

What does it take to build your own 3D printer? Thanks to Makergear providing us with its Mosaic 3D printer DIY kit, we're about to find out.

-- -- -- But not massive show and book in the cnet's 3-D printer built so that what are -- doing today were in the bowels of the CNET -- And we have to take a look at greedy person reading partners was shown at CES this year receiving tax a lot of people -- Today we're going to assemble. So our goal is kind of educators so hopefully educate you and to that ends of got a touch but he. At -- here I'm not -- about the different companies -- make it your folks were nice enough. To a providers that does DIY kit so we don't really know what's in this box and all we have an opening yet. Some that we know what's involved with that process at all Dell and since we like challenges instead of buying -- so hopefully. Figured we would attempt to assemble it ourselves but we being being told by them that it can be about eight hours to put it together. Although we've read from other locations that it can be as much as sixteen hours put. So let's see what we're -- for. And. So elegant parts plus we do we have it's just the opposite of -- parts lists. I think if it's the sort of have the -- like kids Christmas here power supply list. -- straightforward as it is detailed electronic system of which included USB cables this is but also an assembly outside -- the parent and as you can see -- -- burn -- -- and laser -- That means it's accurate and also it's also pretty cheap. So that the price down things that makes. Consumers this is the built platform products -- vital. That the piece of pop. Another part -- also would instantly here. All part of the framework of the -- -- the -- electric motors assembly and centralize. Projector but the extra -- is also an -- that is part that actually rejects the liquid melted plastic tubes for the item they -- it. So this is the Z grill motors assembly -- -- -- and access. Them pretty three objects and then you have three acts. SX YZ. There's a motor that drives -- -- -- along those three axes and that's what this is the system Z axis. The calibration of this is what's very critical. Object. On the -- else. -- -- Probably excellently disease risk and controls the other direction. He adds this is the development incidently -- dual ink -- the printers actually. -- -- -- -- was nice to throw in a sample. School and this is translucent comes and all kinds of different colors. I don't know as far as how -- volumes list but of one thing that we can't say this particular model that we're assembling the five inch by five it like spike heeled platform. So in theory any object that can fit with -- by -- That's how large we can break it. So here's everything in -- box. Instructions printed out earlier they've provided all the tools needed to -- at all sample. So that's great let's get started writing it --
