Ben Heck builds portable 3d printer
Using an array of components and tools, including an Arduino MC-Mega development board, a RepRap Arduino Mega Pololu Shield, a MakerBot printer and his CNC router, Ben creates a 3d printer complete with a mechanical assembly on the plastruder and dual Z axis motors that synchronise the printer arm movement. After tackling a few programming challenges, Ben prints his first 3d object.
