The main focus of the project is to produce an easier to construct, highly marketable and smaller form factor 3D printer in comparison to our current v2.0 printer. Students will have access to a reliable, easy to use system that makes for a great learning tool and an excellent teaching aid for teachers.
The v4.0 printer will be provided at low cost using recycled and 3D printed parts and will be delivered as a kit. This kit will provide an interactive experience where students will learn to build, maintain and repair each system. This will give the students an opportunity to learn about mechanical and electrical design elements as well as provide an introduction to the environmental challenges that fast-changing technology creates.
