Final DIY 3D printer

DIY 3D Printer
 is a creative and cheap method to showcase your creativity, designing and hobby skills you can use it for different purposes extending from personal use to medium projects.

 A 3D printer is a device that converts all your CAD files into a physical product. A simple definition is that this printer converts a digital file with 3D dimensions into a physical product, it prints layer by layer and uses additive methodology.


Why a DIY 3D printer?


In your mind maybe there is a question of why DIY 3D printer, why not buy it online. There are so many printers available online but they are too expensive. They range from a few thousand dollars to several thousand dollars depending upon their speed, printing area, and other specifications. That's why today we’ll show you to create your own in one-fourth price online 3D printers.

Here, we are going to show you how to make a Prusa i3 model.

Is a DIY 3D printer only cheap or Better also?

The DIY 3D printer is definitely cheaper than their market varients, as they are made by yourself so you can customize them according to your needs and save a lot, and making one also gives you in-depth knowledge of how 3D printer works.



Since you came here for a DIY 3D printer thus there is no need to explain “How does a DIY 3D printer work? “

As you all know how does it work. There is the same process for all the printers out there whether they are highly expensive or cheap ones. The only things different are its branding and parts quality.

Step 3) Assembly of DIY 3D printer.


The assembly of the DIY 3D printer is very easy. You have to only assemble the parts step by step.

First, connect the corner brackets with the T-Slot aluminum and make a rectangle. Then, connect the vertical bars with the T-Structure and make the frame. Use nuts and bolts to connect the brackets.

Use four LM8UU bearings and stick them in the support provided in the Y-axis bearing holder and then insert the 8mm dia steel rods through it.


And then attach the heat bed with the bearing holder and then your Y-axis slider is ready.

The electrical parts can be bought from any online website or if you specifically want to know from where we have purchased our parts then please feel free to comment down below. We will respond as soon as possible.

Step 5) 3D printer Connections


  • First, the stepper motors are mounted in its frame and a suitable place is chosen to mount the Arduino board.
  • Above the Arduino board, the Ramps 1.4 shield is placed.
  • The suitable places for 12V Power supply, the LCD screen is chosen.
  • The three endstops are placed at any extreme ends of the axis slider. The position of the endstop is such that the slider always triggers the endstop button when it reaches its extreme end. There are 3 endstops for each axis.
  • The E3D hotend is attached with x-axis carries and secured with its cover.
  • The M8 Extruder is attached with the topmost horizontal bar with screws and the PTFE tube is connected between the hotend and the extruder.
  • The Heatbed thermister is placed at the center of the heatbed and above it, a glass plate is placed.
  • Use copper wires to connect the power supply, Ramps 1.4 shield and the Heatbed for better working of the printer.

Step 6) Wiring diagram of your DIY 3D printer

All the parts are connected as shown above and are secured with zip ties.

Step 7) DIY 3D printer Arduino coding

  • Connect the Arduino mega from the PC with the help of the data cable.
  • Then download the file from the link

  • Then follow the commands:
  • Open File 3D Printercode.rar > Extract her
  • Open Marlin-1.1.x > Marlin > Marlin.ino
  • If you have to make changes in the code then select Configuration.h or else the code is already set for the above printer.
  • Select the port and board( Arduino Mega 2560)
  • Select Compile > Upload
  • Then your printer is ready for work

Step 8) Printing


Before starting the print, you need a CAD file in .stl format.

There are so many software for 3D printing like 

Simplify 3D (paid),

Pronterface (Free)

Cura Slicer (Free)

Repetier Host (Free)

And we’ll recommend Repetier host as it is user-friendly.
