3D printing technology has started to be popular in 2009 when many patents expired. But 3D print is here from 1976 and first commercial 3D printer was in 1992.
I wanted to build my own printer in 2012, but I prefer to working abroad (Work and Travel USA) and was an active member of BEST (Board of European Students of Technology).
When I was thinking about my master thesis in November 2015, I know it should be smth about 3D printing. So I have decided work on that for next 4 months. My master thesis called “Development of FDM 3D printer and implementation on the market“. So the plan is to build Reprap, and find some business model.
So I bought parts to build Prusa i3, make them together and it works! Mr. Prusa and his team made a great tutorial how to make it. I invited some friends and we put it together in less than 24 hours.
I am trying improve the concept of i3, find some good business model and later on show my work to company Prusa reseach s.r.o. and help the to build Czech innovative company.
