I had become bored. After realizing this I decided to build a 3D printer. This will be both challenging and fun. Plus extremely frustrating since I possess almost no skills in any field (other than playing video games, which I imagine is not applicable...). So two days ago I began. After reviewing all of the printers out there I decided on the Reprap, version Prusa Mendel. It is the cheapest and easiest to build.
The next step was to get the parts... This is terribly difficult. I live in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. Most suppliers are overseas, or in the good ol' USA, which means shipping is a bitch and I am probably going to get shat on with some crazy import charges. Seeing as I have no idea what those import charges will be, I just used shipping charges as my basis for buying the cheapest build possible.
