Trashprinter Project

The Trashprinter was originally designed by Sam Smith of the Metabolizer project. In early 2018 Darcy Neal helped to get the early prototype of the trashprinter printhead up and running by helping build a CNC gantry designed by V1engineering. Over the course of several years, Sam has developed various prototypes of the Trashprinter and has worked up to V4 of the Trashprinter printhead, and Darcy Neal is now experimenting with that design to help dial in the settings, automate some cool features, and see how fast and big we can get it to print. Here you can see a series of the experiments that took place during the ongoing testing and calibration of the Trash Hackers Trashprinter.
