Had me worried there, as I misread that for "HIPPO".

My word, a collection of that size would need some serious storage space.

Like the idea of that 3d printer as Velleman are doing a build your own version but I think they are Belgium based.

At this rate I will have to stay up late on New Year's Eve and that is something I never doCursing

Enjoy..

Build your own 3D printer - idbox 3D printer

Straight from science fiction to your home! Turn an idea in your head or on paper into an object you can hold in your hand with this amazing 3D printer, the idbox.

The idbox is a lightweight and compact machine that is easy to work with, and has a fast modelling speed.

Learn how to use the software to create 3D shapes from the basics. First, become familiar with the software, then proceed to new features little by little. By the time the series is complete, you will know all about the 3D software needed to use your idbox 3D printer. The collection also gives you a taster of the 3D modelling programs that are available. Other programs can be downloaded from a dedicated site.

Its a great project for people looking to get an intimate knowledge of the technology or simply a novel hobby. Schools are also getting geared up for "rapid prototyping" technology as a new teaching tool..
https://www.gov.uk/gover...printers_in_schools.pdf

It's perhaps the greatest model kit ever, in that when complete you can print out components to create other models!

Specifications:

Maximum build volume: 150mm x 130mm x 100mm (6"x5"x4")
Print speed: 100mm per second
Layer thickness: 0.10mm
Stacking pitch: 0.1mm
Filament type: Can use 1.75mm PLA and ABS filament types.
0.4mm nozzle: designed to help prevent possibility of clog which some units can suffer from.
idbox footprint: 250mm x 250mm x 275mm
Weight: 5kg
Software compatible with: Windows 10, Mac OS X and USB type 2.

Includes CAD and 3DCG modelling software with an instructional program built-in for first time users to design your own 3D data as well as having access to many varieties of built-in templates you can choose from to print out.
To ensure safe use for the 3D print novice, a heated bed is not part of the spec, though DeAgostini will be including a special 'BuildTak' sheet into the collection (at no additional cost), which provides improved adhesion and allows the printer to print PLA without rafts. The designer of the printer also says that it also works with ABS filament too even without a heated bed.

12 packs = 12 month Subscription

55 build stages in total:

Stages 1-11 Fit together the acrylic panels, and assemble the interior of the molding table.

Stages 12-24 Assemble the XY gantry responsible for the movement of the Y-axis.

Stages 25-29 Fit the nozzle, attach the cooling fan and attach the tubing.

Stages 30-41 Install the motor and limit switch of the X-axis and Y-axis, and install the microcomputer board that is the brain of the printer.

Stages 42-55 Install the modelling table, perform the final finish,. and learn about its fine adjustment and maintenance along the way.

Brill, the possibilites for this are endless in our hobby.... I for one am in as soon as we can subscribe.....Love Love Drool Drool Love Love .. As for the cost of printing materials, think that will be worth it for what can be created and what can be created is all down to ones imagination and mastery of the software...... Love it.....Cool Cool

Like with most things, shop around for the best price on filament type, also depends on the size of item you are printing and how many of.
