Hello everybody, my name is Carlos and I live in Panama and was born in Honduras. For a while now i’ve been interested in building my own RepRap to start my own sort of fabrication center or fablab or whatever you might call it. I’d appreciate some tips as to where I should start. As in, should I do some research into 3d printing theory or just go right ahead to the building of it? What would the estimated cost of this would be? Thanks for everything
Start at RepRap.org
The cost is about $500 to $1000, depending on many factors such as size, your skills and local resources.
