Bart Veldhuizen

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. Incredible.  I'm going to try to make one now.  I don't know how many times I've thought of trying to have my stuff printed to show off around my office.  The ability to make my own would be great.

  2. FYI, 3d printing and CNC milling are completely different things... it's a little misleading to include "3d printer" in the title. It's cool though!

    • More correctly, it can duplicate *some* parts itself. The self-replicating concept is cool, but the technology still has a long way to go. Even industrial 3D printers cannot print the required electronics, for example.

      • Well yeh, it cant do the electronics yet, however they are aiming for that at the moment. I just think its cool that there is a 3d printer available at such a low cost if you don't mind building it yourself.
