I decided to put the build instructions out in pieces and as .PDF files. That way it doesn’t clutter up the blog posts and also provides for an offline copy. The file is here: Building the SUMPOD_Part1 so enjoy! And, do feel free to provide constructive criticism to improve the documentation.
Additive manufacturing is not only a hobby of mine, but also part of my day job as a college professor. Recently, through a crowdfunding site called indiegogo.com, Richard Sum offered a new fused deposition modeler kit called the “SUMPOD.” I ordered the kit in late July and it arrived in late October, just last week. Patience is a virtue but I will admit I was getting a bit frustrated with a number of shipping dates being missed. But the wait is over and I think you will see it was well worth it.
