Just wanted everyone to know I added more photos to the first post in this thread as to building your own heated bed, along with a video.

Well I really don't have a recommendation on any books, I'm sure there are some available. Most every thing you will need is on this very thread as far as parts go, any knowledge you seek, questions you might have, can be answered here as well. If you in fact do see yourself building a 3d printer one day, might I suggest the Kossel Mini, you can build it from a complete kit or build it from scratch. The build instructions can be downloaded in PDF format here
http://blomker.com/Kossel_Mini_Assembly_Guide_V1.0.pdf
and here's more information on the wiki

That pdf was very detailed!
was exited just reading thru. :excited:

The build itself looks like something I can manage as long as I stick to the instructions.
The arduino im assuming the programing would be open source and just copy and paste?

Maybe the mayor hurdle for me would be the actual design interface. going from drawing to print.
last timeI I worked on computer drafting was back in high school many moons ago!

I must say this is a very powerfull tool for anyone in these forums.
bieng able to build your own parts thats just pricless!

Thanks again :thumbsup2:

What you could do is, just buy the ABS plastic parts kit on eBay then go from there with the parts listings I have posted in the beginning of this thread, if your not sure about an item just ask and I'll answer.
Another place I have found very useful is the Google delta forum here
https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/deltabot
I also recommend using carbon fiber magnetic diagonal rods and ball studs from Haydn Huntley here
https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/deltabot/485cfVFrFFU[151-175-false]
Look at his first post in the thread you can view photos of them.
Most people use Google Sketch up to design with.
Yes building your own parts for vic coil spools and the fuel cell would be well worth it.
