Video Description

3D printers are designed to build solid three-dimensional objects of any shape using a digital model. This amazing technology will shape the future and as one of the first low-cost 3D Printers, RepRap have made this a democratic technology. RepRap stands for Replicating Rapid Prototyper, and the technology is capable of self-replicating most of its parts, which can then be used to build another RepRap printer. The open source movement made this revolution possible and you can be a part of it.

This video course teaches you how to make a 3D printer for yourself and calibrate and adjust it perfectly. You will get to know how to solve and prevent common problems and discover alternative solutions to tailor your 3D printer to your liking and needs. You will learn how to assemble parts for your 3D printer and build it with ordinary tools and skills. The course starts off with assembling of the Y-Unit and the XZ-Unit before moving on to the extruder and wiring. Next, you will be shown how to execute some simple calibrations and suddenly you're printing in 3D with your very own 3D printer. By the end of the video, you will be a junior 3D printing expert. This 3D printer used for demonstration in this course is especially designed for easy assembly and use, and gives you a head start in building your own 3D-printers for now and for the future.

Style and Approach

Packt video courses are designed to cover the breadth of the topic in short, hands-on, task-based videos. Each course is divided into short manageable sections, so you can watch the whole thing or jump to the bit you need. The focus is on practical instructions and screencasts showing you how to get the job done.

A well-structured video course with step-by-step assembly instructions and the latest insights from the RepRap community.
