Tips and Advice

With any DIY project, it's always a nice bonus if you have some hints about what to expect, what kinds of bumps in the road might be ahead, and how others before you have tackled the job. We'll keep this chapter short as we know you're anxious to get to work on your 3D printer, but we don't want to get started without sharing some tips and advice we've discovered during the cutting, drilling, and other tasks required for this project.

As with any advice, you're free to ignore it. We'll tell you throughout the book how we perform certain tasks, but if you've found a better way to do something, feel free to do so—but please consider logging into the book's forum and sharing your own tips and tricks with other readers. Just as there are many tools that can be used to cut and drill the 3D printer parts, there are many methods for cutting, drilling, and wiring up your machine.
