ToyRep 3D Printer - Costs Under $85 to Build Using Super Cheap 28BYJ-48 Motors

When I first began covering the 3D printing space a couple years ago, the first thing I thought was, “Boy this technology will change the world”. That thought, however, was followed by a big “IF” –“if prices for home use ever fall”. At the time, I was thinking that perhaps in another 5-10 years we […]
