Home Made 3d Printer End Filament

About: CRAFTSMAN of sewing button

This is my home 3d printer.thanks to E-waste 3d printer

All of the materials are from 7 old printers, gathered from my family and friends. I’ve collected couple of stepper motors and a lot of dc motors. I didn’t need the dc motors for this project. I ordered Arduino Mega and Ramps 1.4 from Aliexpress and J-head Hotend.

    Thanks. This gives me some ideas for my scrap printer. I have almost everything but the frame proved to be the biggest pain. As everything must be cut and drilled perfectly and aligned. Is this extruder feeding the filament as it should ? What are the motor specs ?
