My brother and I have been building 3d printers for almost two years. In this time, we have built three different 3d printers, two of which are our own design. Our printers are based on the open source RepRap project. My brother works mostly on the mechanical components of the printers, while I do most of the electronics and software.

Our First 3d Printer

After we built our first printer, we were asked by the Simcoe County District School Board to speak at a series of conferences and elementary schools about innovation and 3d printing. Our talks were well received, and we were able to inspire many students to start innovating on their own.
