Deltaprintr Go 3D Printer Update – It’s Fixed!

I unboxed the Deltaprintr Go the other day and had some issues with jamming in the hot end. I talked to Shai at Deltaprintr and he told me I didn’t read the directions correctly. It was late, so that’s possible. In this video, I correct my mistakes and get the Go working!

3D printing in the future | Jacob Brown | TEDxYouth@UTS

In this talk, Jacob explores how the nascent technology of 3D printing is opening up the “next chapter” of industry and commerce, and how it will ultimately change everyday life as we know it.

Jacob Brown has always been a huge fan of TED talks, and is excited for the opportunity to be onstage. Aside from his full-time occupation as a grade 10 student at UTS, Jacob is an outdoor enthusiast who loves skiing, hiking, cycling, and camping. Jacob is also no stranger to public speaking. At the age of 8 he earned his first pay cheque of 25 dollars, for a delivering a speech prophetically entitled “The Future” at the Royal Canadian Legion Public Speaking Championship. He continues his speaking prowess as a successful member of the UTS DECA and Debating organizations.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

Did a 3D Printer Explode and Kill a 17 Year Old Boy?

Did a 3D Printer Explode and Kill a 17 Year Old Boy?

The Telegraph tweeted a link to a story where they said a 3d printer explosion killed a 17 year old boy.

The tweet links back to this story:

I say it’s bunk. The headline is alarmist and just relying on buzzwords to catch attention and clicks. It’s sad.

A $169 3D Printer Surprised Me


I wanted to dip my toe into the 3d Printing world, but I didn’t want to commit a small fortune to the experiment, so I bought a DIY kit on Ebay for 9 (link below). While not SUPER high quality, the pieces go together with very little effort and everything fits. I was missing a screw for the z-axis limit switch and the screws for the extruder were too short, but $ .45 at the hardware store and I was in business.

The piece you see in the video was legitimately the first run of the printer. I had no troubles with the extruder, the PLA or any of the motors.
