First move with 3D printer
I’m in the mittle of a project where I need to design some kind of gearbox and a clutch solution (project: http://assigntech.com/?page_id=759)

For me to do easy prototyping I need a way of create objects for testing. First I spent lot of hours on searching for standard components for creating a suitable solution. That approache didn’t take me anywhere.

Then I came over an article written by someone doing 3D printing. That sounded as a good approach for creating custom made objects without investing too much in machinery.

Most of my 3D drawing is already in place at this time so I decided to give 3D printing a try.
While searching for a affordable 3d printer I came over the RepRap project.
I decided to buy “He3D-A230 3D Printer Kit Package Reprap” from Reprap.cn. Price 3.000 NOK.
