The beginning

Inspired by some youtube videos I decided to make my own 3d printer. I’ve decided to go with RepRap because of few reasons, big community support being one of them.

While browsing RepRap wiki I stumbled upon some chinese guy design, and I liked it immediately. It was called Wolfy 1.1 and looked way more sturdy than typical Prusa i3.

Aluminium extrusion frame looks very rigid, which might help to achieve good print quality. A pity whole page is in chinese…
