Trint 3D Printer DIY

People will be looking back at the bears between 2010 and 2015 as the beginning of the 3D printing age and they will be mining the old forum posts and thingiverse designs for decades to come.

Here is a design released in 2015.  I am surprised that I missed it.  It is a small printer designed ot be made on a CNC router with only a couple minor printed parts (or it can also be wholly printed)

It is called the Trint printer and made by some guy in Estonia.

I can only find one online video of the thing on youtube.
Here is the Thingiverse link to the Trint Printer

Here are photos of the various parts.

This would require some thought, and I suppose I haven't had enough coffee today, but what would be useful would be a way to put a 3D printer together with off the shelf parts and use it to print better parts. Sort of a self-booting printer. The concept is you would cut plywood or marine board into pieces that might require careful hand work, but once it can print a few cubic inches, print a more accurate replacement.

Is that what RepRap was all about? I seem to recall looking into them and it was a kit you bought to get started.

Are you familiar with the Gingery books? They start you out with some tools, eventually make a simple lathe, and from that point everything you make adds up to a machine shop with increasing accuracy. Something like that for 3D printers would be cool.
