This guy built a 3D printer for under €100

Many believe a 3D printer will be in everyone’s home one day. If you’re okay with building one yourself, you can join the revolution today, and it won’t even cost you that much.

Instructables member Gelstronic decided to build a 3D printer for less than €100 (about $136). He had to buy a few parts, but most of them are from old PCs. Here is the result:

Since the 3D printer is limited by the length of DVD trays, the build area is quite small (40x40x40 mm), but nevertheless the goal has been achieved. Since all the parts are available for very cheap, you can build one yourself. In fact, there are instructions available in a 10-step format over at the Instructables link below.
