Another Wonder of Technology – Lego 3D printer 3.0

1 year ago 0 2 1963

William (An Instructables User) gave us a chance to learn how we can make our own 3D printers from Lego blocks. It’s really not easy to climb the stairs of success without making hard efforts, especially in the industry of designing. One is required to first think out of the box and then implement those thoughts. This procedure helps in rectifying errors, further you can also make amendments in your invention techniques. Such activities certainly improve a person as a designer.

As this is a latest invention where new techniques have been used, William considers that some changes are still required in this project to make it work with more perfection. This is the first completed project submitted by William on the design-sharing site. This project was boosted up by Instructables, that is why he has opened some sources of getting suggestion on this project through Instructables community.



Now various other machines are stepping into this is making the competition even better among different wonders of technology. For a layman, a lot of efforts are required to be paid in order to understand the logic used behind a 3D printer made with Lego picked up from your child’s toy bin. Another amazing fact about this printer is that the basic requirements for making it can be fulfilled from your home easily.

Basic components which were required in order to make it were X and Y axes. Most of the parts used in it were laid for the Z axis on Instructables, only after this one was able to see 3.0 factors of this project coming together.

Once you figure out that everything is in its right place, then comes the right time to consolidate the real gem of this project which is a software founded by William. Without the help of this you are really not able to see your calibrating 3d printer in a working working.

If you are feeling eager and want to a bit more into it, to understand how William collaborated a 3D printer, with the help of Lego, then you can check out the visuals in William’s Instructables. There you will be able to figure out the exact procedure followed by William for conspiring different Lego components.

While making this amazing Lego 3D printer, make sure you are available with other requirements also, such as- a handy paper-clip and a glue gun. Before start making your glue bridge, do not forget to  stick the paper properly over the top layer of Lego. This is going to help you in dropping glue properly on the required points.

Picture2With the increasing rate of comments and suggestion already bombarding William on Instructables, I think he is certainly going to get some good opinions on his project within the short span of time. It is really an amazing creation and its proof can be taken from 3D printed glue squares which is beautifully designed and compliments an incredible machine like Lego 3D printer 3.0.

The appearance of this 3D printer is a bit different from others, as it is being made up by using Lego that usually comes in different and catchy colors. So, its color factor makes it stand at the top when it comes to look and feel of any specific product in the range of 3D printers.

As per my knowledge, I tried to disclose those facts that I know about  Lego 3D printer 3.0 in the best way possible.
