Building a 3d Printer From Cd Drives

In this video I build a simple 3d printer for under using a 3d printing pen, Cd-Rom drives, an Arduino, and stepper motor drivers.

This build was inspired by Tinkernut’s 3d printer.

The Main Parts I Used:

2 Wii Optical Drives : Got these from broken Wii consoles.

A Dell Computer Cd Drive : Got from old broken computer.

A 3D Printing Pen : http://www.ebay.com/itm/182218486810

An Arduino Uno R3 Knock Off : https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=arduino+uno+r3

3 Stepper Motor Drivers : http://www.ebay.com/itm/331178938895
