So you might ask, "Why make a 3d printer that glows in the dark?" As my four year son said, "Why not Dad? It will be so cool!"

In a nutshell, here are the steps:
We have a 3d printer on hand, so first we start printing out all of the parts in glo in the dark ABS filament. While those are printing we start on the following:
Cut rods to length
Cut belts to length
Assemble the extruder
Assemble the frame
Attach rods to frame
Assemble Y Axis components (we are at this step)
Install X Axis components
Install Z Axis components
Install hot end on extruder
Cut Stepper Motor Wires
Cut Extruder Motor Wires
Wire the Gen6 circuit board
Calibrate and we will be ready to print.
My wife makes and sells these, so we have everything that we need in the garage. However, you can get an assembled version or kit from the website.
This project does not have any discussions yet.
