Well I’ve been thinking of building a 3-D printer for some time now.  So last weekend 2/14/2014 was researching what was available and decided to build the ORD BOT HADRON 3-D printer and went ahead and start ordering parts. Mechanical platform Kit from Automation Technology www.automationtechnologiesinc.com. This includes all the bits and pieces to make this.

The kit I ordered.


From there after little more research I found myself at Panucatt Devices http://www.panucatt.com . For their Azteeg X3 PRO 3D printer Controller.

That’s about it for now as the bits and pieces start showing up will try to keep you updated on my progress. Though I’ve never tried to do anything like this before I always wanted to. Very excited to get started anyway until next time have fun!
