Lego Polar 3D Printer

 

Yes, it is apparently possible to build a working 3D printer out of Lego blocks! Don't believe us? Check out the link below to Instructables, where Gene Hacker provides a step-by-step process for creating the device.

 

Interestingly, he used a Polar coordinate system rather than the traditional XYZ scheme, because "I didn't have enough Legos to build a Cartesian printer". As they say, necessity is the mother of invention.

Kerry Stevenson, aka "General Fabb" has been writing Fabbaloo posts since he launched the venture in 2007, with an intention to promote and grow the incredible technology of 3D printing across the world. So far, it seems to be working!
