Introduction: Jules Verne 3D Printer (cliff Notes Version)

About: Old inventor, reverted back to my 10 year-old self. A shop full of tools, a boat, race car, 3D printer and a beautiful wife who wants me to invent things for around the house... Now how cool is that?

This is a work-in-progress.  The printer was originally delivered in plain clothes from MakerBot Industries.  Within a few months, the interior was littered with pieces of scrap, adhesive, grease and paint spills.   It looked like a set from Little Shop of Horrors.  

I've spent the better part of a year modifying my machine, giving it a definite 1800s science fiction look.  I've published my alterations on Thingiverse and would now like to share my journey here.

With a little persuasion from Amandaghassaei, I've re-worked the photo Instructable and turned it into a full-fledged step Step Instructable.

Rather than delete this one, I'll leave it as the "Cliff Notes" version for anyone who doesn't want to wade through the whole thing:)

Regards,
bfk

    Thank you amandaghasaei.

    I wasn't going to, since there isn't any "instructing" going on with it. It links to the instructables that make up the components in it.

    The Jules Verne theme is what I wanted to show because of the Sci-Fi contest going on. Unfortunately, the contest directors didn't think it met the requirements so they rejected it.

    Maybe, I should make it step-by-step and re-submit it.

    Thanks for giving me the incentive to do it:)
