What is the BUILD Series 3D?

If you’re interested in building a 3D printer, you’ve come to the right place. The LONG BEACH MAKER SOCIETY will help guide participants through the process of building their very own printers from the beginning of soldering to the end of calibration. The BUILD Series will consist of 4-6 build days (Saturdays) where LBMS Officers will be facilitating the build process (additional assistance will be available depending on the progress of the build).
