Getting or making your own 3D Printer

Getting a 3D Printer can be a rewarding experience. To get one you would either have to get a fully assembles printer or a kit. The kits can be imported from China/AliExpress or even a local supplier like https://www.3dprintingstore.co.za which sells kits around R6000.00. But the most rewarding is to build your own printer.

I have been working on one built around a 20×20 aluminium frame using several designs.

The design has a 300x300x400 print volume.
