The Lego 3D-printer
This project is where it all started. When I was on vacation I watched the videos from JK Brickworks. I was inspired about the fact that you could build a Lego model that builds a Lego model itself. So I made a first version. I first had to think of a system for placing the brick because I had only 1 nxt with 3 motors. This version was able to place a few bricks but It wasn’t accurate enough and it was hard to programme.
I wanted to build a 3d printer where I could feed in the base where I would print it on. So I would be able to print faster. It was very accurate and easier to programme. It was also a lot smaller. The only problem was that the structure wasn’t that strong.
