MOST Delta filament as guide.JPG This page was part of an MTU course MSE4777 OA and MSE4777 OB/MSE5777/EE4777/EE5777: Open-source 3-D printing

Please leave comments using the discussion tab. The course runs in the Fall semester. It is not open edit.

Graduate students (MY5777 and EE5777) will take the same lecture and projects as the undergraduates, however, they will also be expected to complete a significant improvement to the MOST Delta RepRap design by the end of the semester. They will demonstrate their mods for the class.

For some ideas see: Github MTU-MOST repositories, Open-source syringe pump, Open-source metal 3-D printer
