Ever had the problem of print just not sticking to a PEI 3D printer bed? I sure have… Thankfully, taking care of the printbed or even fully restoring one isn’t hard!
What is the cheapest possible, real 3D printer you can buy without making one compromise after the other? That’s the question we’re asking by building a Prusa i3 MK2-style 3D printer that comes with most of the important features of the original one from Josef Prusa and requires a bit more work for sourcing and building the machine, but most importantly, we’re going to build it only with the most affordable set of parts.
As it turns out, copyright has a lot less power in the 3D printing space than I thought… Intellectual property has many faces – if you don’t know about them, it’s trivial to infringe on someone else’s rights. Here are the most important things to know about Copyright, Trademarks, Patents and how Open Source fits in.
