My primary goal for this project is to build a functional 3D printer for less than $150 (not including filament), but I really want to try and do it for less than $100. I'll be keeping a tally in the parts section, and a grand total here.
The whole thing is made more complicated by the fact that I don't have access to any real machining equipment or an existing 3D printer (so far as I'm aware), so I have to build everything using no tool more complex than a dremel or soldering iron. Oh, and I've never built a 3D printer before, so I'll be learning everything as I go.
On the upside, my university throws out a ton of awesome scrap, including functioning computers, and this is likely to be one of my primary sources for parts.
TOTAL COST SO FAR: $2.30
