I’ve just gotten around to read Kingpin By Kevin Poulsen.
Although I’m probably a year after everybody else I can’t do anything but recommend reading it since I had a hard time even putting the book down.
Check out Amazon for more info and plenty of other real reviews,
I have lately decided to build a 3d printer, and while I’m not the first it will still probably be extensively documented here.
The original idea was to put together a kit part by part as a long time side project but it is now leaning more towards the puchase of a complete kit at once. This to ensure that the end result actually works, and the way I’ve calculated it will also be substatially cheaper.
So the question now is what kit to get.
It currently stands mostly between a H1 kit from seemecnc.com or a Prusa Mendel kit.
I also have yet to decide if I will run it from my MacBook Pro or via an Arduiono. (I guess my old duemilanove clone isn’t going to cut it..)
Any input in the matter is greatly appreciated!
On a not so related note I’m buying a GoPro camera tomorrow so I will at least be practicing on making all kinds of bar mounts and the like once the printer is built.
