This is the documentation vertex for a 3D printer build run started in July 2013.

Vital links and major log entries can be made here (by anyone, as always). Detailed logs should be made either in a user's own log (which should be linked from here). It'd be a good idea to consolidate what was learned and place it on this page in the end.


  1. What model(s) to build?
  2. Find mentors. People that can help when we get stuck or review what we've done and suggest corrections.
  3. Create BOM, aka parts list
    1. Catalog what parts we already have at HacDC.
    2. Find supplier(s) or kits for all other parts.
  4. Set some form of gathering schedule or build timeline. (a little structure is good)

Which model?

  • Rostock / Max
    Kossel seems to be an improvement
  • Kossel
  • Kossel Mini
    current Kossel
  • OpenBeam Kossel Pro
    in Kickstart phase
  • i3
    current Mendel design
