Yes, there’s RepRap and [email protected], but it’s also possible to just get down and do the whole thing yourself too. Not everyone would be able or interested to do such a thing, but certainly everyone enjoys a good story. Alvaro Fogassa is publishing an episodic story of how he’s trying to build a 3D printer out of “standard tools and off the shelf hardware”. In fact, his base will be a run-of-the-mill Lexmark  Z12 inkjet 2D printer. As this is a part-time venture for him, you will see updates only periodically; he has the same problem as the rest of us – not enough time.

Kerry Stevenson, aka "General Fabb" has written over 8,000 stories on 3D printing at Fabbaloo 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!
