    Yes, that is very possible. Presently I am creating a class on 3D printing 101. But I wonder if we could do a class where everyone in the class makes a printer. We could make a deal for a bulk buy of kits or build one from plans and buy the parts together to get volume deals.

    Hi Steve, thank you for sharing your knowledge. Just wondering if there is any plan to open a class on how to build a 3d printer from sctrach? I wanted to build one. Thank you

      Hey Nat, depending on how much you want to spend and what you want to do with it you might want to look into building a Printrbot or a Kossel Mini or Clear. There are kits available for these and lots of instruction and community support so it's easy to get help if you need it. I have a Printrbot Simple built from a kit for about $350 and am using it to print parts for a Kossel Mini.
