3D Printing – Anet A8 – Build Instructions
So, I finally purchased a 3D printer… I am old enough to remember when the RepRap project started way back in the early 2000s. You know, before it became a commercialization race. So, I’ve been watching, waiting, and finally had the free time to start a new hobby. Well, not really. I’ve got some design work that needs prototyping.
China finally came online as a cheap manufacturing center for low cost consumer 3D printers. Distributed via the Amazon network with 2-day shipping, and presto I’ve got a box of parts that purport to be a 3D filament extrusion printer. The instructions are a silent video on YouTube. Nothing is labeled. And everything feels cheap. But the reviews are good.
