    I spent the better part of 2019 compiling all my 3D printer knowledge into a mega guide on everything you need to know about sourcing the parts and building your own 3D printer. If you have a couple spare hours (it's a long video), then checkout this guide that covers topics spanning extruders to microstepping. I built a custom IDEX 3D printer (that I just posted to the OpenBuilds Projects) as a teaching tool for this video and may be of interest to the more advanced members of this group. Any constructive feedback would be helpful!

    P.S. Not sure why the video thumbnail looks like a potato.

    Great I'm watching. It would save me so much time if I saw your film earlier. Thank you for your effort! :)

    Nice video! a lot of effort :-O and information
    IMHO it would be more flexible if you would cut it to "chapters" like
    "chapter x - rails"
    "chapter y - steppers"
    There is a lot of information hidden inside and sometimes it is harder to find it in more then 2hour long video though
