It is never too early to start making as one 12-year-old tinkerer has proved this week by releasing details of a 3D printer they have created using a LEGO Mindstorms EV3 kit and a low-cost 3D printing pen.
The 12 year old is not even old enough to sign up for an Instructables account and require the help mum to be able to upload details of the construction for others to see.
Check out the video below to learn more.
This is a 3D printer made using Lego Mindstorms EV3 kit. The core of it is the 3D pen that dispenses melted plastic. Movement of the pen in 3 different axes is provisioned by mindstorms motors and they are controlled by lego mindstorms program uploaded into mindstorm brick. Different patterns can be made by writing different programs. I would like to enter the contest in minor category. Also, this is my first instructables submission. Thanks.
