LEGObot 3D Printer
A 3D printing machine prototype made out of LEGO - not a top end solution yet but works in principle. Video embedded below:
Ever since I saw the first makerbot, I have been obsessed with 3D printing, but I am an engineering student so I don’t have an extra $800-$2500, and have been doing my best to create one out of what I have on hand. I tried arduino with easy drivers, and parallel port, but neither one gave results, I always needed a tool or part that I couldn’t get. So I pulled out my old box of legos and started building.
This is a project I have been working on for the past year, it prints in hot glue and made almost completely out of legos. Based roughly on the first version of the makerbot, while it does print, I would call this more of a prototype than a finished project.

The Art of Brick | Nathan Sawaya Nathan Sawaya, a New York-based artist, is reliving his childhood everyday.Before working as an independent artist, Nathan was a lawyer, but the satisfaction he receives from creating is nowhere to be found in a lawyer’s office cubicle. As a child, he drew cartoons, wrote stories, perfected magic tricks, and of course, played with LEGO. But after attending NYU and being a lawyer, he rediscovered the LEGO.When I was a lawyer I quickly came to realize I was more comfortable sitting on the floor creating sculptures than I was sitting in a boardroom negotiating contracts. My own personal conflicts and fears, coupled with a deep desire for overall happiness, paved the way to becoming a full-time working artist. -Nathan Sawaya
