*** Also see the filament extruder work in progress : Filament Extruder

This Rostock is a replica of the 3D printer prototype, originally Dezighned by Johann, with some of my own modifications.


Below is a full documentary from scattered parts to finished working 3D printer including software and Time-laps video of 3D printed parts.  This about 1hr15min so please sit back and enjoy. If one would prefer to reading instead of watching a video please see my blog posted are posted here on the forums:

please do note that the video is much more informative than the blog post
