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.
