Assemble your own 3D printer - Part 1 mechanical assembly

This course run by Buckinghamshire University Technical College (Bucks UTC) is designed to enable you to build the BQ Hepheastos Prusa i3 printer. It is primarily designed to help people bring along and build a printer kit they have purchased from 3D Print World (Aylesbury). However if you do not have your own printer, you will be provided with a kit (one kit per 2 students) to build.

The printer itself comes as a kit in boxes with instructions to enable you to assemble. The course starts with opening the boxes and ends with you taking away a working printer. If you have brought along your own printer then we recommend you have a way of transporting it home safely.

These courses will take place on a Saturdays from 9am - 1pm

The course will be held at the newly built Bucks UTC building, we will be providing a spacious working area and all the tools you will need to complete your printer.
