In a change to our scheduled broadcast (ie. I’m having a few issues with the desk build) I’ve decided to press my coffee table into service and crack on with the build for my 3d printer.  I’m building a RepRap Prusa Mendel with parts purchased off eBay, so far I’ve purchased everything but the components for the electronics board and the hot end for the extruder and I’m way under £200! 

It’s looking like it’ll come to around £250 in total, maybe a little more.  For a 3d printer.  Times are a-changing it seems and becoming more awesome by the day!

I’m not going to write much about the process of building the printer as I’m following someone else’s build write-up and I can’t top them!  Instead, here’s a picture;

More to come, I’ve a lot to do yet but as I’m not waiting on my desk any more I should be posting more frequently again.
