For the past year I have been hard at work designing and testing a 3d printer. I had a couple of goals in mind for the printer.
- It should be upgradable. Not everyone is going to have the resources to dive into 3d printing and be able to afford all the bells and whistles.
- It will be reasonably priced. Most companies who have 3d printers in the market have increased their price points.
- It must be simple to assemble. Anyone who is getting into printing wants to build things themselves. I am not going to make a put slot A into side B simple, but I am going to remove the hurtle and frustrations of having a printer that is to complicated.
With all this in mind, I have designed the bed to be upgradable from a 21.9 cm² x 30cm to a 30cm³ bed. The printer will be capable of 100 micron prints and can using PLA, PLA/PHA and ABS.
In the next month I will be launching my printer, The Dreamer.
I see this printer in the hands of schools, and people, printing whatever they design or scavenge on the internet.
