12 Year Old Builds 3D Printer From LEGO and 3D Printing Pen

It is never too early to start making as one 12-year-old tinkerer has proved this week by releasing details of a 3D printer they have created using a LEGO Mindstorms EV3 kit and a low-cost 3D printing pen.

With the help of his mom, this 12 year-old inventor has set up an instructables page detailing exactly how he built the machine and how it works.

“This is a 3D printer made using Lego Mindstorms EV3 kit. The core of it is the 3D pen that dispenses melted plastic. Movement of the pen in 3 different axes is provisioned by mindstorms motors and they are controlled by lego mindstorms program uploaded into mindstorm brick. Different patterns can be made by writing different programs. I would like to enter the contest in minor category. Also, this is my first instructables submission. Thanks.”
