Low cost 3D printer Wonders! See what you can do at home!
When 3D printing technology introduced 3D printers for the first time, it was a marvel everyone wanted to have. The problem was, not everyone could afford the hefty price tag it came with. 3D printing is still new and thus still pretty expensive as well, but when you leave it to great minds and people with a passion to pull together the power of crowdsourcing and crowdfunding, there are always alternative solutions! And just because you can purchase a low cost 3D printer, that isn’t saying that your three-dimensional objects won’t be good or able to impress others! Here are some great things you can do just by having a low cost 3D printer at your home!

Low cost 3D printer: Wheelchair-Ramp for one step
A wheelchair user actually decided to 3D print his own portable small ramp with a low cost printer. What a great idea! These are his thoughts on the creation: “As a wheelchair-user I often need to overcome a step in front of a building, a shop, cafe or bar. Therefore I had the idea of printing me my own small ramp. It has to be as small as possible to carry it in my bag, when I’m on my way through Berlin. This is my first prototype. Please feel free to print and to develop it… Any feedback is appreciated!”
